soap nuts, soapnuts, soapberriesLiving Naturally Soapnuts or Soapberries are actually dried fruit shells which contain real natural soap and are 100% completely natural.

Living Naturally Soapnuts are a natural, non-polluting, compostable, alternative to conventional laundry detergents and synthetic soaps. No fillers, foaming agents, bleach, phthlates, phosphates or parabens.

Soapnut fruits actually contain a natural soap called saponin, which is released when they come into contact with water. They help free dirt and grime from clothes and help carry it away. This is how all synthetic detergents work ...

Would you prefer to use a detergent that is 100% natural and organic instead of one that is full of potentially harmful chemicals? Would you like to get more value for your money and use a natural soap that can clean your clothes, house, vegetables and pets?

Thought so! And just in case you weren't convinced yet, here are the other benefits:

However, just to be sure, the natural soap in the soapnuts have been tested by dermatologists and 100% of subjects* tested had ZERO reaction (noticeable irritation) after 48 hours of exposure. It is nice when modern science can prove what ancient civilizations have known all along! *Skin Irritation Test consisted of 52 subjects with Fitzpatrick skin types 2 & 3
