Soap nuts (Sapindus Mukorossi-botanical name) are dried fruits obtained from trees native to India and Nepal. They have been used to clean all kinds of fabric for centuries, and only now gaining popularity in the American and Europe as a powerful, yet natural alternative to modern detergent. The saponin contained on its shell releases when it is brought into contact with warm or hot water. (See directions for cold water.) Agitation further releases these saponins and then circulates as a natural surfactant. They break down the surface tension between oil and water in the wash freeing dirt, oils and grime from clothes. This exact same principle that applies to how most detergents and soaps. It’s simply not achieved using synthetic chemicals that are harmful to your body.
Your purchase is beneficial to both the economy environment of India Nepal. In these two countries, there are many poor people. Because soap nuts are plentiful, they become non-saleable locally. Therefore, the trees become more valuable marketable as firewood than for the environmentally friendly soap nuts that they grow. When soap nuts are marketed overseas, it employs local residents to harvest them, which in turn, stimulates the economy. At the same time, it saves the tropical forest.
