Thank you very much to everyone that has helped us reach 3000£!! This was our second target and is going to allow us to buy new equipment and soapnuts from the women co-ops in India! This is fantastic!! THANKS!!!


Launching an innovative organic brand that benefits women's co-ops and forest conservation in India! Get your self a laundry detergent that takes great care of delicate clothes, sensitive skin and your local environment! #FreeFromPalmOil #Vegan #Sustainable. Our first target is 2000£, our second one 3000£ and our final one 20.000£

Our innovation is in the way we process and pack the soap nuts. We need your support to buy more equipment and to innovate further - to create effective 100% bio-degradable household detergents.

We have already developed our first product, grounded soapnuts washing powder, and it has already proven to be beneficial for people with sensitive skin, allergies and for washing baby clothes. It is extremely gentle on wool and silk, takes care of your vivid colours and the environment!

You get an effective and safe product to clean your clothes at home and in the wild when camping or sailing, and you help to preserve people's livelihoods and their forests!

“It is great to be able to support sustainable farming by buying a washing powder. And it works brilliantly!” – Guy, Oxford

“It is easy to use and I love how fresh and soft my clothes feel.” – Helen, Oxford

“Personally I find it refreshing to use this – there were no strong artificial smells after use and the product isn’t laden with artificially manufactured chemicals. From what I’ve learnt, the product is sourced, packaged and used in an environment friendly manner.” – Vijay, Oxford

“I love washing with BubbleNut Wash. It works exactly as my normal washing powder, but it has no strong chemical smell. I just like that my clothes smell fresh and mild.” – Alex, London

“I noticed that my clothes became softer after I washed with BubbleNut. I didn’t even have to use any softer or conditioner!” – Lucy, London

“It works a treat. Nice to use something that looks real too, if you know what I mean, rather than the usual weird smelling white and blue stuff” – Ned, Norwich


If we are successful we will bring safe, cheap and sustainable detergents to 5000 families and avoid the release of 10,000 litres of harmful chemicals into the sewage systems in the next 12 month. BubbleNut Wash would double the income of 100 Indian women permanently without needing any further funding.
