Soapnut Hair Benefits

The chemical detergents in most liquid soaps are drying. They're known as "skin irritants" and are incredibly common in Shampoos and Hand Washes. The most common skin irritants are Sodium Lauryl Sulphate and SLS. All Greenfrog Botanic products contain none of these harsh chemicals and are gentle to all skin types. There are many safe alternatives to these harsh products, such as Soapnuts.

Soapnuts are an all-natural fruit, harvested from Soapberry trees in India, and their benefits are endless.
