Why was Living Naturally founded?
Living Naturally is a family business in the UK. In a bid to live more simply after their children were diagnosed with eczema and autism, the founders were introduced to Soapnuts as a possible solution for eczema by a few family members, and began using them to clean everything in the house. When they saw the eczema getting better they realised how amazing these ancient soapy fruits were!
Living Naturally was soon founded and they started selling soapnuts in 2009. Since then a wide-range of award-winning vegan soapnut product lines have been developed, which are produced by this family-owned business based in the UK.
