A soapnut Sapindus mukorrosi is an inedible natural soapberry - a best-kept secret of the tropics. These amazing berries grow in trees and are a natural source of laundry detergents and cleaning soaps. Although there are numerous eco-friendly laundry detergents that have come in the market in recent years, none of them is 100% manufactured by Nature herself but "Soapnut" - and these are packaged without a shred of plastic!

Soapnuts have been in use in India, Nepal, Indonesia and many other tropical and sub-tropical countries for centuries. The soap nut shell contains a moderately sticky natural substance called saponin, which acts as a natural soap when it comes in contact with water.

You can use soapnuts every time you need a soap!
