From their website:

Maggie’s Soap NutsTM are the only laundry soap that grows on trees!

Truly effective, 100% natural and safe for your most sensitive skin.
Soap NutsTM are the dried fruit of the Chinese Soapberry tree.

years to clean clothes, just like the plants used by Native Americans
for washing.

Simply put a few Soap Nuts into the included cotton sack and drop
it in your laundry. Your clothes come out clean, vibrant, and soft.
Replace your laboratory detergents and softeners with the soap

and your planet will thank you.

Scary thought! Are soapberry nuts "real" tree nuts that people are allergic to or are they more like coconuts that are not as clearly defined?
This could be worse than nut oils in cosmetics.

Soapnuts are indeed a fruit. They grow on trees all over southern asia and have been used for thousands of years to bath, cleanse hair and wash clothing. They will not trigger allergies to peanuts, nuts or coconuts.
