Organic Soap Nut Juice Infused with Chamomile Tea
Soap Nut Juice is made from the fruit of the Chinese soapberry tree (sapindus mukorossi), related to the lychee and rambutan. Soap Nut Juice contains 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. We have infused the Soap Nut Juice with Chamomile Tea for extra calming and gentle properties.
