Our stars - Soapberries and Camellia Oleifera – are two plants used since ancient times for natural laundry and cleaning. They are a natural replacement to chemical surfactants like SLS and SLeS, and unlike the chemical agents, which can be harsh on skin, fabrics, and some surfaces, Soapberries and Camellia clean gently and effectively. They possess strong antibacterial properties that guarantee a truly clean home, dishes, and clothes.

Sapindus Mucorossi  

The treasure in our products, also known as Soapberries or Soapnuts.

Sapindus Mucorossi is a wild tree that grows in the lower foothills and mid-hills of the Himalayans and East Asia. The name is derived from the Latin words sapo (meaning “soap”) and indicus, (meaning “of India”). Sapindus fruits contain high concentrations of saponins – natural foam agents that give their strong cleaning and antibacterial properties. In contact with water, these fruits form a mild foam that resembles soap. 
 
Sapindus has been used for centuries as a laundry detergent, as a soap for personal hygiene, and as a cleanser with lots of other uses. Its unique properties make it an all-purpose cleaner – for skin, hair, laundry, dishes – virtually, everywhere that require cleaning. 

In Eastern cultures, this miracle plant is known not only for its cleaning power. In China, Japan, and India it has been widely used as a remedy for hundreds of years. It is just enough to know the names given to this plant in Asia to get an idea of its versatile beneficial effects. In Japan, it is called “enmei-hi”, which means “life-prolonging plant”, in China “wu-huan-zi”, the “non-illness fruit”. In Ayurveda (called “Reetha” in Hindi) and in traditional Chinese medicine it is considered an invaluable herb for treating skin diseases such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, and some respiratory issues.

Nowadays, Sapindus is a subject of many modern pharmaceutical studies for its antibacterial, antifungal, insecticidal, and antioxidant properties. 

Allergy safe: ideal for people with sensitive and atopic skin. Soapberries do not irritate skin and have an anti-inflammatory effect. Despite the name “nut”, they are actually fruits and are safe for people with a nut allergy, as well. 

Safe for babies: Because of their nontoxic nature they are perfect solutions for baby’s linen and fabrics. 

Gentle on fabrics: they also act as a natural softener and are suitable for delicate clothing such as silk, cashmere, and wool. Their mildness helps to keep colors bright. 

Organically grown: Because of the saponins these berries taste awful to bugs, so they are grown without the need of any fertilizers and pesticides.
