Soap Nuts are the purest form of natural organic laundry soap, detergent and cleaner available on the planet…
Soapnuts are the fruit grown on the Sapindus Mukorossi tree in the Himalayas. The nuts are collected by trained local people who live near those areas. The shells are then dried and cleaned, the seeds are removed and we are left with the soapnut shells.
They work just like normal detergent does, except without the harmful chemicals!! The shells contain a natural cleaner called saponin (soap), which dissolves in water, forms suds and dissolves fats and oils to help lift grime. Soapnuts are naturally low-sudsing which makes this a perfect natural laundry detergent alternative for all washing machines including energy efficient machines.
