What are Soap Berries?
A ripened fruit that comes from the Sapindus Muskorossi tree (look there's one above), which can be found is Southeast Asia around the Himalayas. Once ripe, the berries are collected, cleaned and dried. They are known for their amazing cleaning properties and have been used by the locals for thousands of years.
How do they work?
Once the shells touch water, a cleaning agent called saponin is released. This agent acts as a natural disinfectant that removed dirt, oil and grime from fabric. They can be used in a multitude of ways such as: removing stains, cleaning jewelry, washing dishes, hand soap, etc.
