How Seepje works

The Sapindus mukorossi fruit grows in abundance on the Sapindus trees in and around the Himalayas. The shells from this fruit contain a natural form of soap called saponine. When water is added in your washing machine, the shells spontaneously release their soap! Hypoallergenic and without chemical additives, these shells will give you a wonderfully clean and soft wash.

Due to its favourable climate, the best fruits, in terms of size and quality, are found in India and Nepal. Their shells are therefore rich in natural soap. The fruit is harvested from indigenous forests thus allowing us to create a positive impact both for the environment and for all involved in the production process.

This natural form of soap is soft on your skin, your laundry and your washing machine! In addition, the shells work as a fabric softener and can be used for all types of washes, even for delicate fabrics such as wool and silk. To enhance the experience, we have included a phial with 10 millilitres of organic and plant-based essential oils to or scented shell products.

It's as simple as this

1.
Put 4 whole shells or 8 halves into the cotton pouch.
2.
Place the filled pouch with the laundry in the drum of your washing machine. To respect the environment, run your washing machine with a full load, choose low temperature washing cycles and follow dosage instructions.
3.
Add 10 drops of essential oil to the fabric softener dispenser.
4.
The shells can be used three times, after which you can dispose of them in your garden or with your biodegradable waste.

Prefer a liquid detergent?

Our liquid Seepjes also clean your laundry naturally at all temperatures. In the Netherlands, we create a liquid extract from the shells  using a boil and filtration process.

Our liquid detergents contain 80% extract. Other natural ingredients are added to improve washing power, to enhance the efficiency of separate white and colour washes and to provide a delightful fragrance. Our bottles are made of recycled plastic from Holland!

So, fill your washing machine with laundry, pour the recommended amount of Seepje into the machine’s dispenser, choose your favourite laundry programme and start washing! Together we can make the world a cleaner and brighter place!

Seepje all-purpose cleaners

Seepje all-purpose cleaners contain 90% shell extract and will naturally clean fat and dirt from all surfaces. From now on, you can also wipe the world into a cleaner and brighter place…

In the mood for cleaning? Both the ‘Minty fresh scent’ and ‘Walking on sunshine scent’ are perfect for all hard surfaces, such as floors, window frames, mirrors and the doors of your walk-in closet. Even the bathroom and kitchen will sparkle!

Like the detergent bottles, the all-purpose cleaner contains 1150 millilitres of Seepje, enough for 19 buckets! So, add two full caps of Seepje all-purpose cleaner to five litres of water and start wiping! For persistent stains use undiluted all-purpose cleaner, then wipe the surface clean with a moist cloth.

Our mission is simple…

A cleaner and brighter world for all! We believe that everyone can benefit from our products. You, us, the retailers, the Nepalese farmers and our workers in sheltered employment. Together, we can make washing and cleaning fun again!

Meanwhile, at our Headquarters in The Hague…

Seepje currently has a team of five working non-stop to develop the best products for you! It all started in March 2013, when Melvin and Jasper watched a documentary on how the Nepalese produced natural soap from fruit shells…
