Key Features

The Soapnut shells contain Saponins which, on contact with water, release mild suds and can be used as a sustainable alternative to laundry detergent in washing machines.

The soap nuts have been used as a washing detergent for hundreds of years in India and Nepal. Soap nuts have grown to be a popular alternative to traditional washing detergents as they are better for the environment and can be good for your skin.

  • Pure and natural washing detergent that leaves your laundry fresh and clean
  • Keeps your colours bright
  • Allergy-free, good for your skin
  • Acts as a sustainable washing detergent that is chemical free
  • Cultivated through sustainable agriculture
  • Ecological and economical compared to other brands of detergent
  • Around 1kg of soapnuts can be used for more than 100 loads of laundry
  • Works out cheaper than traditional washing detergents
  • Indian soap nuts are a mild and soft cleansing method


We buy the nuts in bulk, we package them in various weights in brown bags and secure them with a sticker.

We provide free cotton bags for the washing, but please feel free to use your own

How To Use

How do I use the Soap Nuts ?

Place the nuts in the free drawstring bag you will receive, about 5 or 6 nuts at a time per wash. These can be used for multiple washes depending on the temperature.

Pop them in the bag, and close the drawstring, the bag should then go into the washing machine with the load as normal.

  • Delicates, fabrics, wools all work well
  • Temperatures up to 40 oC you can use the soap nuts 2 or 3 times
    • 500g will last up to 120 washes
  • Temperatures 60 to 95 oC you can use once only
    • 500g will last approx 80 washes
  • Hand Washing - add 5-10 shells and wash in with the clothes for hand washing 


We take a great deal of love and care in packing all your orders, We use packaging that is only biodegradable / recycled card / paper based and paper tape ( that can all go in your kerbside recycling box ), we avoid the use of plastic at every opportunity.

Gift Sets are packaged in their own boxes, so for example if you order multiple sets they will have their own box and then placed in one big box.

Natural soap products we sell are “naked” and by their nature very soft, and we try and protect each one as much as possible using paper and cardboard wrapping materials that can all be recycled, you may find some slight marks through travel which does not effect the use of the soap, its just part of their rustic charm !

We also avoid as far as possible to avoid "high gloss" packaging, that we know cannot actually be recycled widely.

Various Gift box packaging is available as an option.

Thank you for your interest in our company, we hope you are assured of our very best attention, your custom is most appreciated - every purchase allows us to spread the word of our plastic free philosophy and zero waste initiatives.
