Native to India and Nepal, Soap Nuts have recently become a popular environmentally friendly alternative to chemical detergent, and are a gentle option for those with allergies to chemicals in regular detergents. They have traditionally been used as an expectorant, and in Ayurvedic medicine as a treatment for eczema and psoriasis. Soap nuts contain saponins, a natural detergent. The soap nut shell absorbs water and releases the saponins which circulate as a natural surfactant in the wash water, freeing dirt, grime, and oils from clothing.
*Soap nuts are gentle and hypoallergenic.
This makes them ideal for young children, pets, and anyone who is sensitive to chemical additives.
*You will receive 4oz. of soap nuts (great for traveling), in a high quality muslin bag.
Your order will be shipped in plastic free packaging.
