As you’re probably well aware, many soaps and cleansers contain harmful ingredients. These chemicals add to the toxic load we carry, making it harder for our bodies to be in optimal health.
Thankfully, there’s the Soapberry.
Yes, it’s are real thing.
These berries grow on trees and with a gentle rub, the berry naturally lathers up between your palms. It’s naturally cleansing and antibacterial.
Here are a few reasons you might consider using Soapberries:
1. 100% natural
We are talking unprocessed and unaltered – soap fallen straight from a tree. In this modern day, who would have thought that nature could provide soap? Rub a single berry between your hands, and feel the naturally luxurious lather form in your very own palms.
A single berry can provide 3-4 uses and once they’re suds are used up, soapberries are completely compostable. Artificial bubbles are washed down through our drainpipes and enter our eco-system. However, these berries are 100% biodegradable.
3. Multi-functional soap
Soapberry is a multi-use all natural soap that seems to have an endless number of uses from hair and skin remedies, face wash, and even as a laundry detergent. With its antibacterial properties, it’s great for removing odors while simultaneously providing a gentle, chemical-free cleanse.
4. Gentle on skin and hair
Soapberries are hypoallergenic meaning it’s safe for your sensitive skin. Contrary to its alternative name, “soap nut” it is actually a fruit so it’s nut-allergy safe. With a pH-balance of 5.5, it is the same as your skin and will protect your skin’s natural oils. No dryness, and many even opt out lotion and conditioners, leaving skin and hair smooth and soft.
5. No Animal Testing
As nature’s plant-based soap without the chemical additives, no living being is harmed to test whether a product’s ingredients are safe for humans.
I’ve heard of soapberries being used to wash laundry, but never to create shampoo or body wash.
Besides providing the actual berries, they are also formulating shampoo and body wash.
I love it!
Soapberri is offering some fun goodies to those who back the campaign, including: shampoo, body wash, soapberries, and a Soapberry eBook.
The Benefits of Using Soapberries in Shampoo and Body Wash
The soapberry extract has a natural pH of 5.5, the same as your skin. So it doesn’t strip away your natural oils and dry up your skin and hair like harsh commercial synthetics. Many people say they don’t need conditioners or lotions afterwards. It’s perfectly gentle for babies and those with sensitive skin.
It is not only natural, but also…
- Organic – it doesn’t get more organic than wild
- Cruelty Free – no ingredients have been animal tested
- Eco-Friendly – no more chemical run off or micro beads
- Fair trade – we add supplemental business to local communities
