A bit about the SoapNut tree
Sindhiya SoapNuts come from the Sapindus mukorossi tree which grows wild in the Hazara district of Pakistan.
The SoapNut Tree’s botanic family includes 2,000 species, with the mukorossi providing the largest fruit, containing a high content of saponin.
This tree, also called the “soap berry tree”, is unique in that it synthesizes its own natural soap-like “saponins” (any of various plant glycosides that form soapy lathers when mixed and agitated with water) that coat the shell of the fruit. When the fruits ripen and fall from the tree, local families harvest the windfall and then remove the inner fruit (seeds) from the outer shell, leaving the SoapNut ready to use.
Once planted, it takes nine years for the SoapNut tree to begin yielding fruit.
They grow thirteen to eighteen metres high.
After the ninth year the SoapNut tree berries can be harvested for a period of ninety years.
The fruit is harvested from September to February. Thus the SoapNut tree’s life cycle is extremely long, allowing a natural and sustainable supply of SoapNuts.
In addition to this, the SoapNut tree contributes to combating the greenhouse effect by converting carbon dioxide into oxygen. The more trees we allow to remain growing in the earth, the better for our earth, atmosphere and ourselves.
The used shells of the SoapNuts are 100% biodegradable, so they reduce the amount of landfill as you just add them to your compost heap and they will turn into a natural fertilizer for your garden and plants to enjoy.
Sindhiya SoapNuts are extremely beneficial to humanity and our total environment. You will struggle to find another product which is as Natural, Eco friendly AND affordable as Sindhiya SoapNuts.
