How Do Soapnuts Work?

Our Natural Laundry Soapnuts come from the fruit of a tree. Interestingly, "Soapnuts" actually refers to fruit, not a nut. This fruit skin contains a very high level of a natural detergent called Saponin.

When water is added to the Soapnuts, Saponin penetrates the fabric, dissolves the grime and dirt, then carries it away in the rinse cycle. This works the same way that conventional chemical laundry detergents work.
