Why Soapnut Is Safer & Better For The Little Ones?
What commercially available baby products achieve through a concoction of chemicals, we achieve that from Soapnut, without adding any chemicals, all naturally!
- Soapnut is naturally pH balanced with a pH range of 4-6. Thus, we do not need to artificially bring down the pH, which is generally the practice with all chemical soaps.
- Soapnut is naturally tough on stains, dirt, grime & odours. Thus, we do not need to add any bleaching or brightening agents, which again is a practice to enhance cleaning performance.
- Anti-bacterial properties are achieved in soaps by adding chemical disinfectants. Whereas, Soapnut is naturally anti-bacterial & anti-fungal.
- Soapnut is a gentle cleanser which means it cleans without causing any damage to the skin or clothes. Many chemical cleansers are so harsh that artificial conditioners are added to mask their effects.
Hear what science and experts say about Soapnut (Reetha)
In the realm of Soapnut research, A. Upadhyay & D.K. Singh (2012) stated in their study that along with various other benefits Soapnut is also anti-bacterial. These natural antibacterial properties help protect infants from harmful bacteria, reducing the risk of infections. By incorporating anti-bacterial Soapnut into their routine, parents can provide an extra layer of cleanliness and hygiene for their little ones.
Multiple articles have consistently demonstrated the hypoallergenic nature of Soapnut. For instance, R. Bhalekar, S. Padher, Dr. Ashwini & R. Madgulakr (2017) have expanded on the uses and benefits of Soapnut by stating, "Soapnut is a popular ingredient in Ayurvedic shampoos and cleansers, it is used in Ayurvedic medicine for treatment of eczema, psoriasis, for removing tan, oily (whitening effects) secretions and freckles from the skin and is Hypoallergenic." In the same article, authors have also talked about how hypoallergenic properties make it a better surfactant than Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS). Hypoallergenic properties keep babies away from skin irritations and allergies.
Another informative aspect of Soapnut is highlighted by Wojtoñ, Szaniawska, Hołysz, Miller and Szcześ(2021) who mentioned that "The pH values of Sp. mukorossi and Sp. trifoliatu solutions in distilled water are 4.6 to 4.8." These pH values of soapnuts (sapindus mukorossi) makes it pH balanced, further making it suitable in products meant for delicate skin of babies.
S. Singh and M. Ali in their article "Sapindus Mukorossi: A Review Article" have highlighted various other benefits of soapnuts like insecticidal and insect repelling properties, improving hair health and also being beneficial for septic systems while showcasing the versatility of this amazing herb. Soapnut's eco-friendly and sustainable qualities contribute to a healthier future for both our little ones and the environment.
In conclusion, by embracing Soapnut as part of our baby care routine, we can nurture our babies with the utmost care, confidence, and respect for nature.
