Seepje produces liquid detergents, all-purpose cleaners, dishwashing detergents, softeners and hand soaps from natural shells grown in India and Nepal. Seepje only uses the best environmental friendly ingredients and together we pay a fair price for these ingredients. Our mission? A cleaner and brighter world!
It all started in March 2013, when Melvin and Jasper saw on television how the Nepalese produced natural soap from fruit shells. These Sapindus mukorossi fruit shells contain saponine, which is a natural form of soap that is released when the shells come in contact with water. Melvin and Jasper then established contact with Hari, a Nepalese farmer, and decided to scrape together their student loans to import a first batch of shells to the Netherlands. Their goal was to make people happy with a wonderful natural product and, at the same time, improve working and living conditions in Nepal!
Currently, there are over 10 different Seepje products available in over 1.600 stores in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. To us, this is really important! The more people using Seepje, the greater the impact we have on the working, living and natural environment. Let nature do your laundry and your cleaning!
