We are Melvin and Jasper and we manufacture washing detergents and all-purpose cleaning products from Nepalese fruit shells! These amazing shells grow in abundance on the Sapindus trees in the Himalayas and love doing your laundry. They contain a natural form of soap, which is released when the shell comes in contact with water.
Together we can wash the world a cleaner and better place! By paying the farmer in Nepal a fair price, we actively promote equality and provide them with an liveable income. Sounds good, right? Furthermore, our champs in the Netherlands working in a social work place play an essential role in the production process of the Seepjes. Due to the fact that we only use the best natural ingre-dients, we promote nature conservation and minimize environmen-tal impact.
One thing is certain: the more people that use Seepje, the greater the impact we can have on people’s lives and the environment! We would like to introduce you to our nine Seepjes.
Amazing Nepalese shells
The shells of the Sapindus fruit contain saponine: a natural form of soap which is released when the shell comes into contact with water. So, can one wash solely with shells?! Of course… By putting 4 shells in the cotton laundry bag and adding them to the drum your clothes will be washed soft and spotless. If you wish, you can add ten drops of organic essential oil to the softener dispenser.
We have three versions of Seepje supershells, each containing 150 grams of shells, sufficient for at least 30 natural washes. Each package also includes a cotton laundry bag and a flyer with our mission and a further explanation on how to use Seepje. Unlike Seepje Neutral, Seepje ‘Summer vacation scent’ and Seepje ‘Morning in the woods scent’ also include a small glass bottle with 10 ml of organic and plant based essential oil.
Liquid laundry detergent
At our own facility we produce a liquid extract from the Sapindus shells. This extract is the base ingredient (80%) for all our liquid laundry deter-gents. We have added additional natural ingredients, such as essential oils and citric acid, in order to improve the detergency, to differ between a white and colour wash and to add a delightful aroma!
Our assortment consists of four liquid laundry detergents, two for colored launry and two for whites. Divided by two amazing scents, Seepje ‘Freshly squeezed spring scent’ and Seepje ‘Free and happy scent’. Each liquid Seepje contains 1,15 l of detergent, which is enough for 23 natural washes. By the way… Our bottles are recycled from old English milk bottles.
Seepje all-purpose cleaners consist for 90% of shell extract. They are perfect for cleaning all your surfaces, such as floors, window frames, mirrors and even the doors of you walk-in closet! As of now, you can also polish the world a cleaner and better place.
We have two different all-purpose cleaners: Seepje ‘Minty fresh scent’ and Seepje ‘Sunny day scent’. Each bottle is filled with 1,15 l of all-purpose cleaner, enough for 19 rounds of cleaning!
We would love to introduce more people to our Seepje products.
Looking forward to see you at BIOFACH, if you have any questions or remarks please don't hesitate to contact us.
All the best,
Melvin en Jasper
