Soapberry Suds - Why you should know about Sapindus Mukorossi.

Soapberry Suds is an organic laundry detergent made with finely ground organic soapberries (also referred to as soap nuts.) The plant they come from is called Sapindus Mukorossi. Here is the wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sapindus
My family tends to have very sensitive skin. And some of the primary irritants for people with sensitive skin are perfumes, dyes and the surfactants (chemical surface tension reducers) that are found in most of the soaps that you can buy from the grocery store.
The natural soap found in these soapberries is called saponin. Saponin is a natural cleaner that works as a surfactant, breaking the surface tension of the water to penetrate the fibers of your clothing, lifting stains from the fabric, and leaving dirt suspended in the water that is rinsed away.
Soapberry Suds is priced at $37.95 for the 100oz. (7lbs.) container. Which I admit, at first glance sounds like a lot to shell out for laundry soap, but in reality, it's a really good deal. Priced out at .16 per load it is considerably less than most leading brands per load. When compared to that "specialty cloth diaper safe" detergent they tell you you MUST have, you'll be shocked at your savings and the quality of this product. It works!
