Applause to another pop up event over the weekend at Yogafest W.E.
Was very happy to meet all of you and to share about Soapnut berries. All you fitness aficionados really had the stamina to power through the whole day. Hope all the Multi-Purpose Cleaners that you had gotten with the Get, Set, Goal Bundle would come in super useful for cleaning your yoga mats.
We are happy to be serving up our natural and safe cleaning products alongside other natural and eco-friendly brands at the Merry Conscious Christmas Market by The Green Collective SG.
We will be selling the usual range of Personal Care and Home Cleaning products. In addition, we will be making our first REFILL debut.
Natural home care brand Soapnut Republic won two prestigious consumer-choice awards at Eco Design Fair 2018 in Shanghai on October 21.
Soapnut Republic's founders, Australian Kim Gilliland and New Zealander Bobby Mitchell, were presented with the top prize for the event: The Shining Star Award for Most Outstanding Eco Impact.
They also received the Eco Product Trailblazer Award for Best Eco Product / Innovation.
“We are thrilled and extremely proud to have been recognised by our industry peers and consumers as a company leading the field in the development of innovative natural products,” Kim said.
Soapnut Republic products are powered by 100% natural soapnut berry extract, blended with the finest selection of essential oils, and plant and mineral ingredients from around the world.
“We're all about making products that are as safe, natural and effective as possible using the highest quality ingredients,” Kim explained.
“We have three young children, and we make every product with the safety of our own family in mind.”
Soapnut berry extract is 100% natural, non-toxic, biodegradable, allergen free, and extremely gentle on skin, fabrics and household surfaces. Its powerful cleaning properties enable outstanding results that other products can only achieve using toxic chemicals.
5 Tips to Wash and Clean Your Activewear for your Healthy Lifestyle
Here we offer five tips to keep your activewear looking and smelling great, and keeping up with your performance.
We all love wearing luxurious silks and other cool fabrics due to hot weather in Singapore and South East Asia, but washing silk clothing has always involved more than just the washing machine (!!).
Not knowing how to wash silk can result in far too many trips to the dry cleaners. This can be costly, but it is also important to be aware that traditional dry cleaners use Perchloroethylene (also known as PERC) which is recognised globally as toxic to human health and the environment.
Handwashing is by far the safest method for cleaning silk and most delicate fabrics. Here’s how to do it the non-toxic way with Soapnut Republic Wool, Cashmere and Silk Shampoo.
Start by performing a water test on an inconspicuous area of your silk. Take a white cloth and wet the area. Gently press the area with the wet towel to see if any colour runs from the silk.
If the colour-fastness test was successful, the next step is to treat stains with Soapnut Republic Natural Stain Remover.
Then pour 50ml of Soapnut Republic Delicates Shampoo into a basin of cold water, and agitate the water with your hands to mix in the detergent.
Submerge the fabric and give the garment a gentle stir before leaving it to soak for no more than five minutes.
Drain the water from the bowl, replace with clean water and rinse.
Once you have rinsed the silk, remove the silk from the bowl and lay flat on a towel. Roll the silk in the towel and gently press on the towel to absorb the water from the silk. Lay the silk out on a fresh towel and leave to dry flat.
If you choose to wash silk in a washing machine, make sure you do so on the “Delicates” setting. Also, place the item in a mesh washing bag to avoid snags and tears.
Finally, when cleaning silk, always handle the material with care and avoid applying too much pressure as this can damage the silk.
Soapnut Republic Wool, Cashmere and Silk Shampoo is naturally gentle and softening on fabric. Our unique blend of pure soapnut extract combined with plant and mineral ingredients is perfect for cleaning and protecting silk, cashmere, wool and other delicate fabrics. Subtly fragranced with lemongrass and Australian Tea Tree essential oils, our non-toxic formula will help to prolong the life of your most delicate items.
