Eco Nuts® Soap Nuts are a berry that grows in the Himalayas that naturally produces a soap. The soap is called saponin, a natural cleaner that works as a surfactant, breaking the surface tension of the water to penetrate the fibers of your clothing, lifting stains from the fabric and leaving dirt suspended in the water that is rinsed away.
Eco Nuts are gentle on both clothes and skin, making them ideal for those with sensitive skin, eczema, allergies and psoriasis. Because they are so mild, they are perfect for baby clothes and cloth diapers. All-Natural Eco Nuts are also great for septic and grey water systems. But don't expect these shells to foam up like commercial soaps, which have artificial foaming agents. Foam simply does not represent cleaning power.
Soap Nuts growing on a tree
Eco Nuts are wild-harvested, meaning they are gathered from wild trees grown without any kind of chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides. The saponin actually tastes bad to insects so no pesticides are needed, and the trees naturally love poor uncultivated soil. They are organically grown by mother earth and certified USDA Organic by Oregon Tilth. Our soap nuts are both de-seeded and sterilized - the only soap nuts on the market that are both!
Nut Allergy Safe!
Eco Nuts are actually a berry fruit related to the lychee and are not nuts at all. They are completely nut allergy safe and have been used successfully with no reactions by people with nut allergies. They earned the name "nuts" because they dry into hard shells like nuts instead of squishy fruit.
While Eco Nuts has been a terrific solution for many customers with skin allergies and other conditions, people who have many allergies or compromised immune systems should always take proper precautions and first wash one small item in a small container or sink OR do a patch test before washing an entire load in the washing machine.
How To Tell When Your Eco Nuts Are Used Up
Ever wonder how to tell when your Eco Nuts soap nuts are done? Here's a handy guide!
There are a few ways to tell when the nuts are used up. A disintegrated soap nut won't look like it did originally. It will be thin, light colored and falling apart and will resemble floppy/broken peanut shells. The exact number of loads can vary based on water hardness, temperature and machine type.
Here's some other ways to tell:
1. Smell the bag when wet.
Saponin has a fruity odor when wet. When you take the bag out of the machine, smell it. If there is a slight fruity smell, the nuts are still good for more loads.
2. Run the bag under a faucet and squeeze.
You'll see little tiny suds if there is still soap.
3. Feel the nuts when wet.
They will have an almost slippery sudsy feeling to them if there is still soap.
Eco Nuts was conceived as a company that could transcend the cleaning industry in becoming a leader in environmentally responsible practices. We are environmentally friendly in our operations and socially responsible in dealing with our customers, partners and suppliers. All our products are cruelty and paraben-free, vegan, tested only on humans, and utilize recycled or recyclable packaging!
We wanted to start a business that we could feel wonderful about. We wanted a business that would be great for the marketplace and the environment. But we also wanted to make or sell something that customers could feel good about buying and using as well as something that was useful and effective.
It also bothered us that when we took walks on the beach, it was littered with the plastic bottles of so-called eco-friendly detergents and cleaners.
When we first learned about soap nuts, there were only a few companies selling them to consumers. When we ordered our first soap nuts, we were also disappointed. This product, that is naturally eco-friendly and has so many benefits, routinely was packaged in a lot of plastic.
Mona, the scientist, was also surprised to find that the sellers of this wonderful product knew little to nothing about them other than that "they work great." When it came to understanding the science behind how saponin (the natural soap) worked, nobody had any understanding about what they were selling or how to troubleshoot problems. When we lab tested these soap nuts, we also found all kinds of nasty germs on them. What's worse, they were being marketed as a "great baby detergent."
We realized we could not only package and market soap nuts better than anyone else, but we could also build upon the wonderful properties of saponin and create other products. Our goal was to be as plastic free as possible to truly make the entire package as eco-friendly as possible from contents to container.
We called our company 'Eco Nuts,' which we thought was a great description for these fantastic little berries as well as wonderful play on words for people like us who are crazy about the environment. We hope you will join us by becoming an Eco Nut, too!
