What are soapberries?

  • Soapberries are the natural alternative to traditional laundry detergents and fabric softeners. That Red House soapberries are also Certified Organic.

  • They are often called 'soapnuts', but they are not nuts at all. They are in fact a fruit!

  • Soapberries are the fruit of the Sapindus Mukorossi tree, which grows in several different regions around the world, but is most prevalent in the Himalayas.

  • The shell of the fruit is collected, dried and packed for use. The shell is exceptionally high in 'saponin' which is nature's soap. This saponin content reduces the surface tension of the water so it will remove dirt and leave fabrics, soft and clean.

  • Our Certified Organic soapberries are harvested from wild trees in the pristine Himalayan mountains of  Nepal, by small local communities.

Why choose soapberries?

  • Soapberries (also known as soap nuts) are a natural alternative to traditional laundry detergents and soap.

  • Soapberries are 100% sustainable, and their use ensures that deforestation is reduced in the Himalayas.

  • Anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.
