Loose Soapnuts Natural Laundry Detergent
Soapnuts are the ultimate natural and environmentally friendly laundry detergent there is, they grow on trees! They are great for those with sensitive skin and brilliant for allergy sufferers and work well with delicates and silk. These loose soapnut shells come in a reusable muslin bag and packed in an eco-friendly jute bag.
Laundry detergent that literally grows on trees! The shells of the soapnuts or 'Ritha' as they are called in India, have been used for centuries to help with laundry. Washing your clothes can't get any greener than this!
Our 100g of Loose Soapnut Shells come in a reusable muslin bag that is packaged inside a beautiful eco-friendly jute bag. The shells naturally contain saponin (a surfactant) which when in contact with water, acts as a soap and creates suds. Once the soapberries are cultivated, they are dried and get their reddish-brown colour. The black kernel is then removed as it does not contain any saponin. They are then packed in cotton bags to be sent to you!
