What exactly are organic soapberries?
They are nature's laundry detergent! These berries are grown in the Himalayas where they are picked, dried, and packed in a completely natural and chemical-free process. They're rich in Saponin - a natural chemical which produces suds when mixed with water and is known for being an effective anti-bacterial and anti-fungal soap.
How exactly do they work?
Using these organic soapberries couldn't be any easier! Simply put 4 - 5 berries in a small cotton bag and throw it in the wash. As soon as they hit the water, the natural soap is released and removes dirt effectively. One bag can do 4 - 5 loads and in case you're wondering, yes, they are suitable for both front and top loaders.
Are they safe to use for people with sensitive skin?
Absolutely! There's a reason why a lot of our customers are families with children suffering from a skin condition. They are ideal for babies, kids, people with sensitive skin and the whole family for that matter. They are hypoallergenic and leave no residue so won't irritate even the most delicate skin. Using cloth nappies? You've found the right detergent!
How do they help the environment?
Unlike regular detergents, no harmful chemical sprays were used in growing or harvesting the berries. They are sustainably grown and ethically harvested and once you're done with them, you can add them to your compost where they will break down naturally.
