About Our Soap Nuts
Soap nuts (also called soap berries) are a fruit closely related to the lychee. The trees produce saponin in the berries – a natural soap – as a deterrent to insects. Our consumers receive them de-seeded and dried. While different species of soap nuts can be found worldwide, we carry only the Sapindus mukorossi variety, which are the largest of the soap nuts and have the highest saponin content.
Soap nuts can also vary from region to region, much like grapes in vineyards. We have an arrangement for importing from a particular region of the Himalayas in Nepal and India where we feel the quality is best.
Our soap nuts grow wild in the Himalayas and are not cultivated in any way. They love poor unfertilized soil and don’t require insecticides or chemicals. They are gathered once a year at harvest and are de-seeded and dried in an indoor facility.
We inspect, hand sort and package in the USA. We carry only de-seeded fresh soap nuts, never older than one year. We have proper storage facilities, and offer competitive wholesale pricing and services for all your reselling needs.
