NaturOli™ | NaturOli Nuts - The Most Effective Soap Nuts Available
NaturOli Nuts - Hand sorted, select quality.

Assurance of only the finest soap nuts.

As with virtually all fruits of harvests, there are very significant differences in quality. Also, as with virtually all plants grown there are different varieties of soap nuts. Some are simply better than others. So, how do you know exactly what you are buying? That is a tough one. Knowing soap nut quality with 100% certainty is almost impossible. There are no reliable rules or governing regulations. How does one even know that an apple or orange (which are in large part governed and monitored) will be sweet until one tastes it? Given the very low level of consumer awareness about soap nuts combined with its relative obscurity, it's basically a caveat emptor (buyer beware) scenario. Often distinguishing between soap nut varieties is difficult for even a trained eye.

To further complicate matters, variables such as growing conditions, weather conditions, harvesting methods and storage conditions, packaging methods, shipping conditions, etc. can all greatly impact the appearance and quality of the soap nut. Any harvested fruit is subject to all such variables. (Refer to page on Variations.) To make matters worse, the vast majority of soap nuts are sorted once, bagged and packed - for retail - overseas to save costs. Unfortunately, that results in a very minimal level of quality control. In other words, the last person that really looked at that soap nut in your hand may have been the person who actually harvested and bagged it many months ago.

In order to ensure optimal soap nut quality and proper grading, NaturOli imports only Mukorossi soap nuts in large sealed, presorted bulk packaging from exporters of only the highest reputation and integrity. The initial sort by our suppliers ensures an initial high level of quality Sapindus Mukorossi nuts leaving the port. Upon arrival at our air conditioned Olive Park facility in the dry desert of Arizona (the perfect environment), those large bulk bags of soap nuts are broken down, re-inspected for quality and hand sorted - again. This second local sorting results in a very important final quality check before being packaged for retail or wholesale.

NaturOli Nuts soap nuts are a truly 'hand sort - select' quality. Soap nuts that do not meet our criteria for this grade still contain the effective saponins. They are still of great value, therefore they are simply utilized in our various powder and liquid formulations. Hence, be assured you are always getting only the absolute finest quality soap nuts available.
