Soap Nuts are the husk of the Reetha tree fruit (sapindus mukorossi) that naturally contain “soap”. The reetha tree is native to the Himalayan region and is often coined the “soapberry tree”.

Within the husk of the fruit is a naturally occurring soap called saponin. The saponin is a natural cleaner that works as a surfactant, breaking the surface tension of the water to penetrate the fibres of your clothing, lifting dirt from the fabric and suspending it in the water that is rinsed away.

Soap Nuts are not only gentle on fabrics but also gentle on the skin. This makes them perfect for anyone with chemical sensitivities, allergies, eczema, rosacea or psoriasis. The mild gentle nature of soap nuts makes them ideal for baby and children’s clothing, toys, bedding and cloth diapers. Unlike commercial detergents that create a huge amount of foam and large amount of perfume, the soap nuts have none of that and clean residue free, leaving nothing in the fabrics to harm the skin.

Allergic to nuts…

The Reetha berry was coined soap nuts when it was first introduced to the European market because of the marketing of the word soap nuts. Traditionally in India, they were either called reetha or soapberry. Soap nuts are actually from the berry family and come from the same family as the lychee fruit, so they are perfectly fine for anyone with nut allergies.

Is there a soap nut tree plantation?

Soap Nuts are wild harvested and organic, there is no need for pesticides and chemicals on these trees at all because the saponin in the berry is a deterrent for insects, the tree is its own insecticide. Mother Earth created something spectacular here, they actually grow best in uncultivated soil, she made sure we would have a cleaner….NO MATTER WHAT.

Make sure to chose the best….

Soap Nuts are a recognized, respected and trusted brand of soap nuts. Our customers have come to rely on us for our high quality soap nuts and our amazing customer service.  Soap Nuts are organic wild-grown soap nuts from the northern Himalayan region of India and Nepal.

We work directly with our suppliers and their staff to maintain the best product for our customers. We only use the sapindus muskorossi species of soap nuts, and we lovingly hand package all our soap nuts in Canada in biodegradable packaging. We also know that from the smallest crumb to the perfectly circular soap nut they all work the same, they are second or inferior if they are broken. In fact, many of our customers break Soap Nuts down to a dust. We allow mother nature to chose her shape.

Athletes, mothers, college students, outdoor enthusiasts, restauranteurs, cottagers, farmers and cloth diaper users all sing the praise of soap nuts. Our customers are consistently giving samples out to their friends and family because they are as passionate as we are about people converting to this amazing all natural laundry detergent. Our greatest compliment as a business is a referral from our customer to their friends and family. We created our sample and share pack for just this reason.

You will notice that all of your clothes are much softer when you make the switch to soap nuts, this happens without the use of fabric softeners. The wash bag stays in through the rinse cycle and this is where a small amount of saponin is released to open the fibers.  You will also notice that your colours stay true and the fabrics last much longer without breaking down. Commercial detergents are so harsh that they tend to weaken fabrics making colours fade and clothes to wear out quickly.

If you are concerned about the earth, your skin, your baby, your clothes and your pocketbook it is time that you switched to using soap nuts.

This 100% all natural detergent is also the most inexpensive way to do laundry!! Commercial and Organic detergents alike can not compete with the price per load of soap nuts. Additionally, you will no longer need any kind of fabric softener, that is another cost savings to you and your family.

So what are you waiting for?
