A natural soap that very literally grows on trees. The Soapnut is a multi use detergent product, with no added chemicals. it helps relieve skin issues caused by standard laundry powders, such as eczema and rosacea. With the soapnuts being a natural product they are free from the toxic chemicals you would find in your standard laundry detergents.

Soapnuts are the product of the Ritha Tree (sapindus mukurossi), a rather lovely tree that grows very happily throughout Asia. The soapberry is the fruit of this tree and it defends itself naturally from bugs and whatnot by producing saponin within the fruit. This is jolly good stuff from our point of view as it is essentially a naturally occurring soap. The soapberries are collected from the tree and the seeds within removed. The outer part of the berry is then dried. This is the bit we call the soapnut.

With the soapnuts being a natural product they are free from the toxic chemicals you would find in your standard laundry detergents. Chemicals like Phosphates, Phenols, Sodium Sulphate, Ammonia, surfactants and artificial fragrances. All of these carry potential health risks which can include allergies, asthma, skin and eye irritation not to mention the damage that is caused when these items enter the water course, which is significant. Individually they can be quite dangerous enough but combined they really can be more harmful than you may have previously considered.

The production of soapnuts is a friendly one too, providing work which is not enormously skilled to local people. This of course gives an income to the local populace which of course is a good thing.

They are excellent value for money - giving up to 400 washes from a 1kg bag.

The Soapnuts that we are selling are of a much higher quality than the dried out ones.  Our ones are very sticky, come in a sealed bag to maintain the freshness and have lots more cleaning power than the usual dried out ones that many others sell.

They can be used for most of your household cleaning. We have been washing our clothes with them for months and think they are brilliant. When they have been used for the washing they get whizzed up with the blender and boiled to get all the soap out, the liquid is then used for other cleaning. Cheaper, Effective, Environmentally and Allergy Friendly. These are a fantastic alternative to washing powder and conditioner.

How to wash your clothes

Put 3-6 Soapnut shells into the little wash bag that comes with your Soapnuts, or an old sock if you like, then tie up the drawstring so that the nuts can't come out. If you are using a sock we find a strong rubber band works well or just tie a knot in it. Add the bag to the washing load, in the drum. Then run the washing machine as standard. No conditioner needed, no added manmade chemicals needed. Take out the washing and put it on the line.
Done (as that chef fella would say). 

With each batch of soapnuts you can get up to 3 washes before they are effectively used up and need replacing.

PLEASE NOTE: The instructions for use are on our website. We do not send as standard so as not to waste paper, however if you are unable to download these then please state at checkout that you would like some sent.
