Soap Nuts are the dried fruit of the Chinese Soapberry Tree (Sapindus mukorrosi), related to the lychee and rambutan. Soap Nuts are harvested in Indian, Himalayan and Indonesian jungles where Soap Nut trees are holding forests and families together! The Soap Nuts fall to the ground where they are collected by local folks who have used them for centuries.

If you are familiar with Soap Nuts, our Eco Nuts™ have become a widely recognized brand name. Don’t settle for generic soap nuts. Eco Nuts™ are higher in quality and cleaning power because in addition to our proprietary sorting and handling process, we also only use a particular variety and size. We have found this quality control translates into more re-uses than many other generic soap nuts. Our proprietary sorting process also ensures a consistency in shape and texture that makes Eco Nuts™ pleasant and easy to use. Because we lovingly and carefully hand package in the USA, we can also eliminate individualized plastic wrapping otherwise required by customs.
College students, mothers, campers, techies, boarders, and eco-activists alike keep telling us that Eco Nuts™ work great! Try a sample size and you'll become an Eco-Nut too!


Soap Nuts work like a detergent. They contain saponin, an all-natural surfactant. Conventional detergents are manufactured, chemical surfactants. Surfactants work by breaking the surface tension of water so it can more easily penetrate into fabrics, effectively making water “wetter.” Once wet, the agitation of your washing machine (or your hands) shakes the dirt loose from your clothes. Then Soap Nuts’ saponin holds the dirt in suspension in the water -preventing it from re-depositing on your clothes- until you’ve rinsed it away.
