Soapberries, also called soapnuts, are actually a small fruit. They are the fruit of the Sapindus Mukorossi tree which is found naturally growing in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains.
The appearance of abundant lather is important to commercial chemical soaps, to give us the sensory impression that is working. This bold lather is actually misleading characteristic of modern commercial soap. To achieve it most soaps and bodywashes use artificial foaming agents to produce the visual appearance. These agents don’t increase the effectiveness of the product, they just introduce more chemicals into our washing and wellbeing routine. Soapberries work effectively without this misleading excessive foam.
We are proud that there are 0% Additives, Parabens, SLS, ALS or Palm Oil in our soap berry skincare products. Read more about our natural ingredients.
Natural Skincare & Laundry
Because they are so mild and natural, soapberries are a healthier soap for everyone. They are particularly good for babies, children and those with sensitive skin, eczema, allergies and psoriasis. They have been used to treat these skin conditions and many people report great improvements once switching to a soapberry bodywash or handwash.
Our natural soap berry bodywash products are ideal for baby’s delicate skin and our laundry soapnuts are perfect for cloth nappies and baby clothes.
Soapberries are perfectly suitable for daily laundry needs, but for tougher stains, you might need to pre-treat and soak your clothes. You can use washing soda as a laundry booster and soak the clothes in the washer for several minutes before completing the cycle. While this might seem like more work, it is a small sacrifice to make for a more chemical-free future.
Soapberries are especially good for washing coloured woollens, silk and other coloured clothing. Because they are completely free of chemical brighteners and bleach, bright white clothing will eventually take on a more natural colour, however colours will keep their brightness for longer. White clothes will not have the same chemically white appearance when washed with soapberries, but you can achieve a comparable result by adding a laundry booster to your load, such as a washing soda, or lemon juice.
