Soapnut republic kim fionna

I'm so excited you are here.

Hello! My name is Fionna and I am with Kim, co-founder of Soapnut Republic.
Soapnut Republic was founded by New Zealander & Australian couple, Bobby Mitchell and Kim Gilliland. The couple has lived in Shanghai, China for 15+ years and have 3 beautiful daughters, 7 yrs, 5 yrs, 2 yrs old.

At Soapnut Republic, we believe that natural cleaning should be first and foremost safe for you and your family. As a 2 year old, Bobby accidentally drank bleach and was hospitalised. He fortunately lived to tell the tale. To prevent this tragic incident from happening to his children and to other families, he decided to use his chemical engineering background to formulate a safer cleaning alternative. And, that was how Soapnut Republic was born.

Soap that grows on trees

Soapnut berries powers all our cleaning products. These are berries that grows on trees, in fact, they are cousins with the lychee fruit. When the berries are dried, their skin naturally produces soap (or saponin) when mixed with water.

Cleaning that is safe on your skin and non-drying, so you can skip the moisturiser

Soapnut berries have been used traditionally in India as a shampoo, as it is gentle on the scalp and helps prevent dandruff. Soapnuts have also been used in Chinese medicine as a treatment for dry skin and eczema. This is the same ingredient used in Soapnut Republic so it’s safe on your skin, non-drying, and you probably can skip the moisturiser.

Smells great & naturally anti-bacterial with essential oils

We all cringe at the over-powering smell of chlorine bleach or artificial fragrances in chemical cleaners. With Soapnut Republic, we have essential oils in our products to make cleaning products that smells great, so you can enjoy uplifting essential oils as you clean. Tea tree essential oil is used as a natural anti-bacterial ingredient to remove bacterial and germs on your hands and cleaned surfaces.
