First, Seed Legend products are completely made with foraged wild soapberries instead of farmed ones. This ensures a higher quality, larger berry that we use as the basis of our products! Each wild soapberry contains more saponin than farmed ones-- the substance in soapberries that contains the cleansing power, has antibacterial properties, and can counteract oxidative stress!
Next, these soapberries undergo our special, patented 180-day fermentation process! Naturally, soapberries contain some poisonous acids, but don’t worry-- those are all removed during the fermentation process to ensure a safe final product. Fermenting the soapberries allows us to extract all the saponin: without the fermentation, you won’t get the same benefits from soapberries!
180 days might seem like a long time, but there’s a good reason for it! This slow fermentation has a low carbon footprint, and all parts of the soapberry get used, leading to less waste and an eco-friendlier product! Finally, our fermented soapberry syrup gets turned into all our beauty and home products. None of our products contain any artificial preservatives, thanks to the 180-day fermentation!
