Soap Berries

What are soap berries?

Soap berries, soapberries or soap nuts as they are sometimes called are a small fruit grown naturally in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains. THis remarkable fruit, used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine contains a gentle soap, Saponin, within its skin. The Saponin acts to break surface tension between the water and build a lather that can remove dirt and grease from the skin. Organic soapberries have been grown naturally without being subjected to any harmful chemicals or fertilisers.

Soapberries laundry detergent acts in a very similar way and is capable of penetrating fibres and gently lifting stubborn stains from clothing.

Benefits of Soapberries.

When used as a soap, soapberries creates a lather that is pH balanced and therefore very gentle on the skin. It is a natural soap and moisturiser. As a laundry detergent, soapberries work wonderfully well. It is recommended that between 5-8 soapberry shells be placed in a small cotton bag and added to the washing machine. The bag can be left in for the full wash cycle as they are known to make a great fabric softener. 

One of the distinctive characteristics of the soapberry is the comparative lack of lather compared to commercial soaps. T may surprise you to learn that the lather in commercial soaps is created by the use of artificial foaming agents that have little cleansing qualities at all.
