Before we switched from ordinary detergent to soapberries, we often experienced skin irritation from the residues of detergents on our clothes - even when we used products with allergy labeling and without perfume.

But after we switched to washing with soapberries, the allergic reactions have completely disappeared, and as a bonus we don't have to buy a lot of plastic packaging.

Soapberries are a 100% natural alternative to traditional detergent, which is particularly suitable for washing colored, woolen and delicate clothes. The berry shells contain a natural and gentle soap, which is released in contact with water and washes your clothes clean of everyday dirt.
 
Soapberries contain no additives and are a completely enzyme-free detergent, which makes them perfect for those with allergies, small children, or those who want to cut down on chemicals in everyday life.

PROPERTIES OF SOAPBERRIES
  • Antibacterial
  • Skin and allergy friendly
  • Cheap per wash / slow to use
  • Sustainably produced - completely without plastic
  • Particularly suitable for washing wool
  • Particularly suitable for washing other fine materials
  • Contains no additives or artificial chemicals
  • Completely enzyme-free detergent
  • 100% biodegradable after use
  • Wild harvest

    Soapberries are the fruits of the soap tree Sapindus Mukorossi. Maybe you've heard soapberry before under the name soap nuts or wash nuts? Even though the dried berries have many names, the fruit from the soap tree is in fact a berry - hence the name soapberry.

    Many call the soapberry nature's very own detergent. And for good reason. The fine dried berries are bursting with natural and gentle soap substances called saponins, which are actually the plant's own protection against pests.

    Saponins can wash your clothes clean for everyday hardships - Just like the detergent you might be used to. You can even see the soap as a fine shiny film on the inside of the berries.

    Soap berries work as a natural detergent, because the saponins (soap) reduce the surface tension of the water in the washing machine and release dirt from the clothes completely without enzymes and harsh chemicals.

    1. Place what is roughly equivalent to the shells of five whole berries in the small cotton bag provided. It can be both whole, half and quarter shells.

    2. Close the bag tightly with a knot and then put the bag directly into the washing drum together with the clothes. It should NOT be in the soap drawer.

    3. If there are stains on any of the clothes, treat the stains with stain remover before washing.

    4. Start your washing machine and wash as usual. The higher the temperature you wash with, the more soap melts out of the berries.

    If you wash at 30 degrees, you can use the berries for approx. 5 times in the washing machine.

    If you wash at 40-60 degrees, you can use the berries for approx. 4-5 times in the washing machine.

    If you wash at 60-90 degrees, you can use the berries for approx. 1-3 times in the washing machine.

    But look at your berries. You can see if the berry shells have become thin, paler in color and no longer have the shiny membrane left on the inside. Then they are ready to go in the compost, bio bin or directly in your flower bed.

    5. Take the clothes out of the washing machine as soon as possible after it is finished. And hang the small bag with soap berries to dry if you don't have to wash again right away.

    We dream of giving you the best experience with our soap berries. That is why we would like to tell you how you can get the most out of nature's detergent.

    Because soapberry is a completely pure natural product with no added chemicals. And it is important to remember so that you don't expect soapberry in itself to do exactly the same as a chemical detergent with a long ingredient list of added substances for e.g. to bleach or to remove stains from clothes.

    WE DO NOT RECOMMEND SOAP BERRIES AS A STAIN REMOVER

    Soap berries do not contain ingredients that dissolve and remove difficult stains from clothes. If the accident is over and a difficult stain has appeared on the clothes, we have developed a natural stain remover as a supplement to the soap berries. With it, you can target and remove the irritating spots as needed.

    WE DO NOT RECOMMEND SOAP BERRIES FOR WHITE WASH

    The soap bars are brilliant for your regular laundry of e.g. colored and wool. But we do not recommend soapberry for white washing, as the berries do not contain additives such as optical white or bleach, and therefore white clothes will not retain their "whiteness" over time when you wash with soapberry.

    SOAP BERRIES DO NOT CONTAIN PERFUME

    When you wash with soapberry, the scent is neutral. It's the gentlest choice, but if you like your laundry to smell extra delicious when it comes out of the machine, you can add a few drops of our laundry fragrance in the fabric softener drawer or directly on the small bag of berries you put in the machine.

    Our soapberry grows wild on small private and collectively owned plots of land in the Himalayas in Nepal. The berries are harvested once a year, dried by the sun's rays and stoned by hand.

    Through our local partners, we purchase the soap berries through Nepal's ancient trade chains. In this way, we act on the terms of the Nepalese and through our work can support approx. 130 local families in one of the world's poorest regions.

    The soap berries are sent in bulk to Denmark by ship and are then packed in paper and cloth bags at the protected workshop Aalykke in Aalborg.

    In this way, our production of soap berries both lives up to our visions of supporting sustainable growth in Nepal, while at the same time we can support socio-economic initiatives here in Denmark.

    The bag contains 500g of organic, raw, dried soapberries from Nepal. 100% natural product directly from wild-growing soap trees. Unsprayed.

    We take responsibility

    It is important to us that soapberries are harvested with respect for nature and that a share is always left for the locals and natural self-sowing. That is why we deal directly with local Nepalese partners and farmers, so that we ensure proper conditions. It is good karma for people and nature.
