About this product
Ecozone’s naturally and sustainably sourced soap nuts are a completely organic, allergy-friendly, economical and effective alternative to the common laundry detergent.
What are soap nuts?
Soap nuts, also known as Soap Berries, have been used for thousands of years as a natural washing detergent. They grow on trees of the Sapindus Genus and are commonly used and harvested in India and Nepal. It is the berry’s natural source of Saponin which makes it a truly natural soap which cleans and freshens your clothes. Check out this video for an example of what the harvesting process looks like (video).
Soap nuts are not as harsh as modern detergents and this makes it a perfect substitute for those washing clothes for babies, those with sensitive skin as well as anyone seeking a more natural lifestyle. This product is completely organic and hypoallergenic.
