Eco Nuts are completely sustainable dried fruit shells that come from the Sapindus mukorossi tree (also called the Soap Berry or Soap Nut Tree) in Nepal, India and Indonesia. The ones we harvest come from high up in the Himalayas and are the highest quality "soap nut" on the market. These fruit shells have been used in India and China for centuries, and are now gaining popularity in America and Europe as a renewable, biodegradable and organic alternative to chemical detergents and expensive Green laundry soaps.
Eco Nuts contain Saponin, 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.
Eco Nuts are gentle on both clothes and skin, making them ideal for those with sensitive skin, eczema, allergies and psoriasis. Because they are so mild, they are perfect for baby clothes and cloth diapers. All-Natural Eco Nuts are also great for septic and grey water systems. But don¡¯t expect these shells to foam up like commercial soaps, which have artificial foaming agents. Foam simply does not represent cleaning power.
Eco Nuts are wild-harvested, meaning they are gathered from wild trees grown without any kind of chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides. The Saponin actually tastes bad to insects so no pesticides are needed, and the trees naturally love poor uncultivated soil. They are organically grown by mother earth and certified USDA Organic by EcoCert at the source.
Eco Nuts are Nut Allergy Safe! Eco Nuts are actually a berry fruit related to the lychee and are not nuts at all. They are completely nut allergy safe and have been used successfully with no reactions by people with nut allergies. They earned the name "nuts" because they dry into hard shells like nuts instead of squishy fruit.
While Eco Nuts has been a terrific solution for many customers with skin allergies and other conditions, people who have many allergies or compromised immune systems should always take proper precautions and first wash one small item in a small container or sink OR do a patch test before washing an entire load in the washing machine.
Our proprietary sorting process also ensures a consistency in shape and texture that makes Eco Nuts pleasant and easy to use. Because we lovingly and carefully hand package in the USA, we can also eliminate individualized plastic wrapping otherwise required by customs.
In addition, many regular soap nuts are harvested, sorted and prepared in the outdoors, and dried on a rooftoop. This exposes them to the elements and birds or other animals! We take great care to ensure our soap nuts are carefully prepared and stored indoors in a clean facility. Our soap nuts are carefully sorted using our proprietary process to ensure they are free from contaminants before they are packaged! After all this sorting and care, those soap nuts become Eco Nuts! We are currently the only soap nut company that we know of to be utilizing these methods and technology both in the US and overseas to make these soap nuts safer. They are safe to use in both standard & high-efficiency (HE) machines on any water temperature.

Citrus Circles deodorizing wafers are made of the same blotter paper as deo disks with an oil-based citrus scent applied. They are nontoxic but of course they should not be ingested so please keep away from children. They are individually wrapped and are made in the USA. They are the same size as the deo disks you have been familiar with. There are many other uses for Citrus Circles. You may want to try them in many other places as your garbage can, near your cat box for those pet odors, your vehicle or anywhere you want a fresh, clean citrus scent.

*Now packaged in new non-clumping bags! Charlie's Soap™ Laundry Soap is a revolutionary approach to laundry & cloth diaper care. It does not cover up stains and odors with scents and brighteners - it really cleans. It is made with a unique blend of biodegradable coconut-based detergents and high-grade, completely soluble, Green River washing soda. This also makes it a perfect soap for babies or those with sensitive skin. The ONLY laundry soap that I use on ALL of my wash, due to my son's very sensitive eczema-prone skin.
*Some GREAT studies and reports of Charlie's Soap™:
A test was performed with 100% cotton cloth diapers. Poor rinsability was indicated by a weight gain after controlled washing and drying. Diapers washed in Tide Liquid (at recommended levels) gained nearly 2% in weight after only 8 washings. Those washed in Charlie's Soap™ (at recommended levels and 4 times recommended levels) gained no measurable weight at all.
To qualify as biodegradable, a substance must be 80% degraded in 28 days. Charlie's Soap™ degraded over 97% in soil in 28 days and is certified safe for use in small lakes and streams. Charlie's Soap is a Registered Trademark of Shiloh Products, Inc
