How To Produce Liquid Soap In Nigeria (Step By Step Guide In 2024 )

This Article On The Production Of Liquid Soap Was Last Updated: June 2024.

The production of liquid soap is becoming very popular in the country today. Many use it for domestic purposes at home to wash clothes and kitchen utensils; restaurants and eateries are not left out too. One interesting thing that makes the demand for liquid soap to be very high is the fact that it is easier and cheaper to use than every other washing substance.

A lot of people are now venturing into the business. Capital for the production of liquid soap is usually meagre and one may not require any further teaching since the internet has made everything beautiful in this generation of ours.

This article was been carefully written to guide those who may wish to produce liquid soap by themselves. Note that there might be other methods used for the production of liquid soap, but this particular one is one of the best because it is the product of so much research and expertise of the author. You may, however, stick to whatever method will best work for you in future.

You can start the business today on your own and specialize in the production and marketing of liquid soaps to make a lot of money for yourself.


Liquid Soap

The Chemicals required to produce liquid soaps are not far-fetched and are not expensive; they are readily available in our main or major markets. Just ask traders around where you can buy chemicals for liquid soap and you will be directed accordingly.

The under-listed chemicals are for the production of about 20 litres of soap. The vendors that sell the chemicals can advise you on the quantities for a smaller volume production like 15 litres or even 10 litres, or as the case may be:

  1. Nitrosol (or Antisol)…….………….1/8kg (i.e 125g).
  2. Caustic Soda…………………..………1/16kg (i.e 62.5g)
  3. Soda Ash (Sodium carbonate).1/8 Kg
  4. SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate)..1/8kg
  5. Sulphonic Acid………………..………1 ½ Ltr
  6. STPP…………………………………………1/16Kg
  7. Texapon …………………………………1/8kg
  8. Foam Booster…………………………1/6 Ltr
  9. Formalin…………………………………10Cl
  10. Colour (As desired)
  11. Glycerine (Optional)
  12. Perfume (As desired)
  13. Vitamin E (Optional)

Liquid Soap Production



Water is the main solvent needed for the process to dissolve the various ingredients. It is very essential in the production of liquid soap.



Nitrosol is a thickener that is used in liquid soap production. It is a white, powdery substance that is derived from cellulose. Nitrosol is used to thicken liquids and also to stabilize emulsions.

And while there are a variety of thickening agents on the market, one of the most popular is Nitrosol.
It is commonly used as a thickening agent in a variety of products, including the production of liquid soap, hair shampoo, etc.

How does Nitrosol work as a thickener?

Nitrosol works by increasing the viscosity of a liquid. In other words, it makes the liquid thicker. This is accomplished by the Nitrosol molecules entangling with each other, which creates a sort of “net” that traps other molecules within the liquid. This increased viscosity makes the liquid soap thicker.

Antisol can also be used if Nitrosol is not available. The only difference between the two is that while Nitrosol will dissolve immediately in water, Antisol takes a longer time to dissolve in water.

Caustic Soda:

Caustic Soda

Caustic soda is one of the most important ingredients in liquid soap production. It is a very powerful cleaning agent that can remove dirt, grease, and grime from surfaces. It is also an effective disinfectant and can kill harmful bacteria and viruses.

Caustic soda is a whitish crystalline substance that looks much like a sample of granulated sugar. It is also known as sodium hydroxide and it forms a strong base when dissolved in water. This means that it will raise the PH of the soap, making it more alkaline.

As a strong Alkali, it can be corrosive if in contact with the skin, so it must be used with care. Liquid soap production requires a careful balance of caustic soda and other ingredients to create a product that is safe and effective.

Again, it is a very essential ingredient in the soap-making process. This is because it is a stain or dirt removal agent in the liquid soap. When used properly, it produces a high-quality, liquid soap.

Soda Ash (Sodium carbonate):

Soda Ash

Soda ash is also known as sodium carbonate. It is generally found in a white powdery form, but it can also be found in a granular form with many coarse grains. It is soluble in water, and its solutions are basic in nature.

Known for its wide range of uses, especially in many industrial and consumer applications, including glassmaking, detergent manufacturing, and water treatment.

Soda ash is another key ingredient in many types of liquid soaps, including dishwashing detergent, carwash liquid soap, shampoo, and bubble baths. A mild alkali that helps to break down grease and dirt, and it also helps to regulate the pH of the soap.

This chemical is used in liquid soap production as a pH adjuster. It helps to bring the pH of the liquid soap to a neutral level, which is important for both the soap’s efficacy and the users’ safety.

It is very important to have it in your liquid soap so as to make it less likely to irritate the skin.

SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate):


The Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) looks like rice grains and it’s whitish in colour too.

SLS is a synthetic detergent and surfactant. It is a widely used ingredient in many cleaning and hygiene products. It is the main active foaming agent in many products such as shampoos, body washes, laundry detergents, carpet cleaners, bubble baths, etc.

In Liquid Soap and dishwashing liquids production, it is used as a foaming agent and an emulsifier, helping to keep oils and dirt suspended in the soap solution until they are rinsed away. SLS is the principal ingredient responsible for the liquid soap’s foamy lather.

It is also used in other cosmetic and cleansing products such as shaving cream and toothpaste.

If you’ve ever used any liquid soap or any of the products mentioned above, chances are it contains Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS).  



Texapon also known as SLES (sodium lauryl ether sulfate) is a pasty and jellylike substance; a surfactant and emulsifier used in many cleaning and beauty products.

SLES is an inexpensive and effective way to cleanse and foam up products. It is also used as an emulsifier in cosmetics and as a detergent in shampoos and other hair care products.

As a surfactant, it helps to reduce the surface tension of water, making it more effective at cleaning surfaces. And as an emulsifier, it helps to keep oil and water from separating.

In the soap-making industry, Texpon helps to create a smooth, creamy consistency in liquid soaps that is perfect for both personal and commercial use as an effective cleansing agent that can remove dirt, oil, and other debris from surfaces.

Texapon also helps in improving the shelf life of liquid soaps, making them last longer without separating or deteriorating.

Many liquid soap producers don’t use Texapon and SLS together in the same production; reason because both perform almost the same function relating to foaming. So, they go with just one.

It is important to know that, both of these ingredients (Texapon and SLS) serve a specific purpose in the liquid soap production process and can have a big impact on the final product.

Texapon Vs SLS

While Texapon is a surfactant, which means it helps to reduce the surface tension of the water, thus, allowing the soap to easily penetrate the surfaces and get rid of dirt and oil. SLS, on the other hand, is the main foaming agent which is what gives liquid soap its characteristic lather. When combined with Texapon, it can create a very rich, creamy lather that is perfect for cleaning and cleansing.

While both of these ingredients are important for liquid soap production, they can also be used in the making of other products like shampoos, body washes, bubble baths, etc.

Sulphonic Acid:

Sulphonic Acid For Liquid Soap Production

This is a dark-looking liquid substance. Please the word spells S-U-L-P-H-O-N-I-C and not S-U-L-P-H-U-R-I-C. The latter is a very strong acid and can be very corrosive. Please beware!

Sulphonic acid is a type of organic compound that is typically used as a surfactant. It is also used in a variety of other industrial and consumer products, such as detergents, shampoos, hair dyes, and textile processing aids.

When used as a surfactant, sulphonic acid helps to lower the surface tension of water which allows it to disperse more easily and penetrate surfaces more effectively.

In liquid soap production, sulphonic helps to create a variety of different textures and consistencies. For example, it can be used to create a foamy, bubbly soap or a thick, creamy liquid soap.

Sulphonic acid is one of the key ingredients in liquid soap production. Apart from it being a powerful surfactant that helps to break down oils and dirt, and allows the soap to suspend these particles in water so that they can be rinsed away, it also provides antiseptic properties to the soap, which can help protect against bacteria and other germs or contaminants. These antiseptic properties, make it ideal for its use in soaps and shampoos.

STPP (Sodium Tripolyphosphate):

STPP For Liquid Soap Production

Sodium Tripolyphosphate (STPP) is a sodium salt of triphosphoric acid. It is another common ingredient in the production of liquid soap. Appears like a white granular powder or substance and looks very much like the common table salt. It is soluble in water. 

In many liquid soaps, STPP is primarily used as a strong cleaning agent and helps to improve the cleaning properties of the liquid soap. STPP helps the SLS to work to its full potential. It also helps to thicken the soap.

STPP is commonly used as a detergent builder or water softener. It is used in a variety of industries, including detergent manufacturing, textile processing, and also in some consumer products, such as dishwashing detergents and laundry detergents.

Foaming Booster:

Foaming booster

This also comes in liquid form and has transparent look. As the name implies, it makes the liquid soap foam very well.

Foaming boosters are ingredients added to liquid soaps to increase their foaming and cleansing ability. When added to soap, they also help to lower the surface tension of the water, which allows for more bubbles to be formed.

Foaming boosters are often used in conjunction with other foaming agents such as surfactants (like SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) or Texapon)


This is a preservative agent. It should be used if the liquid soap is to be stored for a long time like six months or more, especially if one is producing for commercial purposes. Please you can do without this chemical. “It is very harmful if abused, it can cause CANCER according to some schools of thought and research.”

Formalin is a liquid compound that is used as a preservative in many industries, including liquid soap production. It is a colourless, odourless gas that is dissolved in water to form a clear solution.

It is an effective preservative that helps to control the growth of bacteria and fungi and prevents the spoilage of products.

There have been some controversies concerning the use of Formalin in the production of liquid soap, some consumers are concerned about its potential health risks. (Formaldehyde, a gas that is released from formalin, has been classified as a human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

There is no evidence that formalin exposure from personal care products, such as liquid soap, poses a health risk. However, it is important to carry out your own due research to determine if you must use it at all.

There are still other choices like essential oils and citric acid. The use of preservatives in Liquid Soap Production is not mandatory!


Green Colorant For Liquid Soap Production

Choosing the right colour for your product is an important aspect of liquid soap production, especially for those going for commercial production. There are a few things to consider when selecting a colour for your liquid soap production, ensure you are going for water-soluble colours. Also, note that the chosen colour will have an impact on the final product.

There is a wide range of colours available, and it can be tricky to decide which one is right for your soap. The colour of your liquid soap can affect the overall look and feel of your product. If you want to have a natural-looking soap, you might want to choose a light colour. For more vibrant-looking soap, you may choose a brighter colour.

Colours for liquid soap production normally comes as a powder and should be diluted with water before adding to the soap mixture. The colour adds beauty to the finished product. Most liquid soap producers go with green colour.


Glycerine in beaker for Liquid Soap Production

Glycerine is a clear odourless liquid derived from plant oil (or synthetically produced) and used in a variety of products, including cosmetics, food, and pharmaceuticals.

While glycerine is derived from plant oils, it can also be synthetically produced. However, vegetable glycerine is the preferred type to use in liquid soaps or liquid soap production, as it is more natural and eco-friendly.

PLEASE READ:  Aftershave Production

Vegetable glycerine has a number of benefits. It is a natural humectant, meaning it helps to keep things moist. It is also an emollient, meaning it can help to soften and smooth the skin. In addition, vegetable glycerine is a good source of antioxidants and can help to protect the skin from damage.

While glycerine is not required in liquid soap recipes, it can be a nice addition if you’re looking for a more moisturizing soap. So if you’re interested in making your own soap at home, you may consider adding a little quantity of vegetable glycerine to it. This will help your skin to remain hydrated and soft after using the soap.


Perfume in beaker For Liquid Soap Production

Perfume is important in liquid soap production because it can cover up the unpleasant smell of the soap base.

Carefully selected perfume will give your product a pleasant smell, especially to customers or other users of the product. Most people prefer lemon, pineapple, ambi pur. lavender or strawberry fragrance in their production.

So if you’re looking to add a touch of luxury to your liquid soap products, consider adding perfume. Perfume can help to give your soaps a beautiful scent, and can also be used to create unique, signature scents for your brand.

When adding perfume to liquid soap during production, it’s important to start with a very small amount and then increase gradually to the desired level of fragrance. This is because it can be very easy to overpower the soap with too much perfume.

Start by adding just a few drops of perfume oil to the soap base, and then increase the amount until you’ve reached the desired scent level.

Vitamin E:

Vitamin E Oil in a conical flask for production of hair shampoo

Vitamin E oil is a natural oil that is extracted from the seeds of the vitamin E plant. This oil is then refined and used in a variety of products, including cosmetics, skincare products, and even some food items.

This yellowish-brown liquid is insoluble in water, and it is known for its ability to nourish and moisturize the skin. It is a popular ingredient in many anti-ageing products, shampoos, and other personal care products.

Vitamin E oil is often used as an additive in liquid soap production. Its main function is to act as an emollient, or moisturizing agent, and to protect the skin from damage, wrinkles, etc. Liquid soaps made with vitamin E oil are often more expensive than those made without it, but many people believe that the benefits of using a vitamin E-enriched liquid soap are worth the extra cost.


  1. A big mixing bowl
  2. Containers
  3. Wooden spoon or stick for stirring (or a hand mixer for chemicals if you can afford one)
  4. A pair of Scissors
  5. Spoon
  6. Hand glove
  7. Nose mask
  8. Rubber gloves
  9. Measurement bowl or container or beaker


One really needs a great deal of patience during stirring to make sure any chemical added in any stage dissolves properly before adding the next one

For smaller volume production, eg 8litres or 10litres, follow the same process but work on your ratios. The vendors selling these chemicals usually sell them already measured according to the volume of liquid soap to be produced. (If you can, still get your measurement devices for perfection.)

Just tell them how much volume you want to produce and they will give you the number of chemicals you require. It is advisable to start with a small volume and grow bigger later. Measure out about 20 litres of water; then follow the under-listed steps:


  1. Dissolve the Caustic Soda before the production process with 1 litre of water, possibly, allowing for 24 hours or overnight. You can still dissolve a few hours before the main production, the best result is however achieved if the time is longer. Please keep all chemicals out of reach of children. Caustic soda is corrosive to the skin.
  2. Dissolve the Soda Ash as above (i.e with 1 litre of water and keep overnight for proper dissolution)
  3. Dissolve the Nitrosol with 10 litres of water or lesser, in a bigger mixing bowl just before production. In case you want to opt for Antisol in preference to Nitrosol, dissolve it in the same amount of water and let it stay for at least 24-48 hours before production. Note: this should be properly dissolved and will look like a ‘starchy solution’ at the end.
  4. Dissolve the SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate) in 1 litre of water to produce a clear solution before production; keep it aside. This should be done at least one hour before production. If you want it to dissolve well, dissolve in water and leave it overnight.
  5. Dissolve the STPP (Sodium Tripolyphosphate) in 1 litre of water before production and keep it aside too. (Some people don’t use STPP for whatever reasons best known to them)
  6. Mix the Texapon and Sulphonic Acid together. Mix very well and dissolve further with 2 litres of water. Stirring should be done gently until the mixture is well dissolved and homogenous. Note that this particular step is an exothermic process; meaning that heat will be generated if you do it well.
  7. Dissolve the powdered colour with a small quantity of water and keep it aside.
  8. Mixing Phase…
  9. Gently pour the dissolved mixture of Sulphonic Acid and Texapon into the mixing bowl containing dissolved Nitrosol(or Antisol}. Stir very well and gently until the mixture becomes homogenous. You need patience here.
  10. Add the dissolved Caustic Soda into the mixing bowl above and stir very well.
  11. Add the dissolved Soda Ash next and stir very well until even.
  12. Next, add the STPP and stir properly
  13. Add the Dissolved SLS and stir more.
  14. Add Foam Booster to make it foam very well.
  15. Add your Formalin and keep stirring
  16. Vitamin E and Glycerine can be added at this point. Don’t forget to stir and stir.
  17. Finally, allow the lather formed to settle and disappear, then add the dissolved colour and perfume, and stir properly.
  18. Now add the remaining water. Do this gradually, a small quantity at a time, stir each time and pay close watch on the thickness until the desired is attained.


Following this order is very important; otherwise, you may end up producing something you may not like. Some people also believe that the SLS and Texapon should not be used together (that it is either you use Texapon alone or SLS alone, but not the two). As I mentioned earlier, there are diverse methods of production and one should stick to whichever works for him or her. For me, I use the two.

  1. Please if I’m doing the instant own do I still need to soak like the SLS and other chemicals over nights?

      1. Follow that steps above and add quarter to Nitrosol and Sulphonic acid in addition to what you have up there and use green colour of course. Good luck.

    1. Morning, my name is Anne from South Africa, I came across this conversation and i found it very interesting. May you please send the updated format or measurements that you said you were going to send after correcting some measurements please. I’m also interested in making the dishwashing products but i prefer to do it right. Thanks again.

    1. I guess too much exposure to sunlight. I have not really experienced that, but I have seen so many, especially those ones being sold.

    1. Not really, the chemical reaction is better when well dissolved. SLS has large particles like grains or rice. It requires a great deal of patience to dissolve properly. It won’t be like that forever, it will still dissolve in the liquid soap.

  2. goodmorning. gone through thids page for the first time. the production process is explicit. i made 10litres of soap and used all the chemicals listed here. sold some. but my customers complained it not foaming well. but when i took a little qty and diluted with small qty of water and use, it foamed well. what could be the likely reason. 2ndly the feel of the soap was too slippery when poured on the hand.

    1. Hello, was Foaming Boaster used in the production? You may also increase the quantity of Taxapon a little next time. Your second question…Soap is supposed to be a little slippery, if too slippery may be as a result of more than enough quantity of caustic soda. Always ensure you have good measurement containers or equipment. Don’t always rely on measurements from chemical sellers.

    1. When mixing Chemicals try to stir very well next time…this is what brings about homogeneous mixture.

  3. Nice, I m producing for d first time.u Dd nit attend any seminar , but read an handout and a demonstration on Facebook. The soda ash Dd nit dissolve inmeediately , u had to leave fir d nxt day. Ti my surprise I t had solidified in d water . I had to turn it into d solution till anoda day. Though d product later turn out fine. Wat could be d cause?
    Another thing is dat I found plenty lumps on top of d solution I had to sieve bfr anything ,wat could be caus e too, thanks Rachael

    1. When dissolving chemicals, ensure they are well dissolved(Most times by stirring). Mixing requires great deal of patience too. I believe you will improve as you go on with more production. Goodluck.

  4. I gave learnt a lot in this page. God will be bless you guys.I would like to know how i can make bleach from hydrogen peroxide. Since its colour safe for fabrics. What are the materials/chemicals i need and their right measurements and how to mix them.

    1. We shall find time to post the article…Do check back time to time. Better still contact us directly and get the FREE PDF

          1. Hi,
            Divide into three parts. 1 part for the Nitrosol, 2nd Part for other chemicals, last part to control the thickness. I hope this helps.
            Kindly join our WhatsApp group on 07069140167.

  5. Hi gudday, pls u said the above process is for 10litres, but my total calculation from ur process ab, I feel it more dan 10litres. Nitrosol alone is dissolved in 10ltr, not to talk of caustic soda n ash. My question is after summing all these together, are we going to get 10litre of liquid soap or 17+ of liquid soap

      1. Morning ma/sir. Thanks for explainatory guide. Pls how can i retify my liquid soap thst is abit harsh on the skin and did not foam well

        1. If you have the right quantity of Soda Ash, it will prevent the harshness on the skin. Most time people fail to use the right quantity or measurement; if this is true, you will end up with funny results after the soap is done. Always buy your chemicals from vendors who are old in the business and who knows how to measure. If you follow this article well, your soap must foam well.

    1. Hello Amaka, the chemical vendors will further guide you on volume and proportion. Just tell them what you intend to produce.

  6. It’s like I made mistake I soaked d SLS and another chemical overnight instead of the nitosol what should I do please.

  7. Its Funny…Please always ensure chemicals are labelled well by the vendors selling them. You might not achieve the desired result.

  8. Good day, thanks for the explanation. I want to ask if I can use sodium sulfate as one of the chemicals of liquid soap. Also, on the measurement of caustic soda, what measurement can one use for 40litres.

  9. Good day,thanks for this. Please is it advisable to use sodium sulfate as one of the chemicals of liquid soap.

  10. Good afternoon.This have helped me alot. Thank you so much.
    The last liquid soap I produced wasn’t clear (transparent)it was cloudy ☁. Please what could be the cause.I prefer it when it is clear. The soda ash I used didn’t dissolved even though I soaked it for more than 24hrs. I don’t know of if that was the cause. Please help.

    1. God bless you sir… thanks for the article. I noticed that after producing my liquid soap is usually very thick but after some time it becomes light,what can be the cause..

  11. First of all, I want to thank you for taking your time to write and post this information. Thank you!

    I am here to ask if it is compulsory, according to the law, to register my products (liquid soap and shampoo) with NAFDAC before marketing them?

    1. It may be advisable to do so, especially if you wanna go into large scale. Please this is your discretion. Thanks

    1. Chemicals can be got from any central market near you. Just ask the market people where you can buy chemicals. Please do not suck chemicals!

  12. Please can we mix the sulphoric acid,texapon and sls without water. Thanks for write up. So nice

    1. Just follow the instructions and you will be just fine. The word is ” Sulphonic” and not “Sulphoric”. Note that the latter is a very strong and corrosive acid. Please beware!

  13. Dear,
    You know STPP is banned by US & (EUROP) Government & you use two different foam booster like Taxapon & Foam Booster (SLES/AOS) is also foam booster.
    You can’t use Formalin 2-3 grams per kg.

    You take water Qty = 20-Ltrs. but other ingredients weight you can’t measure in above calculation.

    M. Azhar Javed.

  14. The information is wonderful but I have issue of my liquid wash looking cloudy green each time I make it. What is the cause

    1. Please I tried making liquid soap today and my challenge is that there are so many lumps inside it, I stirred properly..what could be the cause and is there any solution for it??
      Cos I want to sell this.

  15. Hi,thank you for the guide,please I bought my chemicals today n asked for guide from d owner at the chemical store
    Ingredients used: nitrosol,caustic soda, texapon,sulphonic acid, STTP,soda ash,SLS,colour n fragnance
    Procedure: I was told to mix nitrosol in 5litres of water,2spoon of caustic soda in 2litres of water,texapon n symphonic acid in another bowl mixed together, STTP n soda ash mixed with 7litres of water,SLS with hot water for 20 min,color with little water…after this I mix everything together then add my colour n fragnance at d end,but I discovered it has lumps in it n r yet to dissolve… What could be the cause
    Note: 1. it foams well but watery
    2.I used 25litres for all.both mixing n at the end cs I told the seller I want production of 25litres. Thank you as I await your response urgently

  16. Hi there, my name is tofik from Ethiopia, I am new comer to liquid soap production business, I tried different recipes and I bought different chemicals, one is CDE or coconut oil,but I changed the recipe because my customers didn’t like it, now I am using mainly LAPSA for my soap production, my question is can i use LAPSA with CDE if i can how? If it’s impossible to how i use CDE for liquid soap production??

  17. Thanks for the article… detailed and explicit. Where can I buy glycerine and vitamin e. And what’s the quantity to be used in 10ltrs production

  18. Thanks the write up is well explicit. I made 25l quantity, at the end I realised starchy like solid below the mixture and a feeling of corrosion on my skin. Pls what can I do to correct these.

    1. Stir well next time, and also ensure you use the right quantity of caustic soda. Most people always have issue with measurement…trust me I have experienced that before. Another issue I once had was buying fake chemicals. These things happen.

  19. Thank you, I’m glad I read through. It was helpful. Can I use only soda ash, with out using both caustic soda + soda ash?

    1. Thanks. For perfect result, follow the guide. The Chemical vendors can also help you with guides.

  20. Welldone dear,ds is absolutely very educative n more illustrating. More more grease to ur elbow and may Almighty God bless and expand ur knowledge. I ? U great ??????ian.

  21. Good evening please, i did my liquid soap today kept it for sometimes but the foam is not going off just confused should i still leave it open over night.
    Also while doing it the chemicals where actually touching my hands because i didn’t wear any hand glove hope for this first time it will not cause cancer.

    1. Did u used the right chemicals? Also make sure the Texapon and Foaming agent are in adequate proportion.
      Don’t worry it wont give you cancer lol. After all, you will still use it to do some washing

  22. bin looking out for this knowledge,en am glad i found t for the first time…am gonna try it out soon,en i hope it turns out pretty well.thnx for the effort guys.

    1. They are usually very very cheap; depending on your location though.
      Cannot be more than N2000 for a 15 to 20 Litres volume.

  23. Thank you so much
    Please if I may ask,
    I produce the liquid soap and its very ok but later i notice that the soap is watery. Though I use salt to thicken it

    Please what could be the reason
    Thank you

  24. I need formulation, How to make transparent solid jelly (gel) detergent. Can you help with Cold Process Formulation?
    Caustic Soda%
    Cocoamide DEA%
    Corn starch %

    Thanks for your help.

  25. Good evening sir/ma
    Thanks for this wonderful lecture you made soap making so easy anbelieve mine will come out well.
    Please can one use an electric blending stick/mixer to mix the chemical during production

  26. Please sir/ma. Please can you share procedure for making car wash liquid soap. This particular procedure is well detailed thank you for sharing.

  27. Sir/ma. Please can you share procedure for making car wash liquid soap. This particular procedure is well detailed thank you for sharing.

  28. Thank you so much! I followed your instructions to the latter and my soap turned out perfectly even beyond my expectations.

  29. Thanks for the teaching
    I concern about the Ph of the soap. How do I check this and what is the good Ph for liquid soap. Waiting

  30. Thanks for the explanation,please my local instructor added only 2 teaspoon of coautic soda to make the saop, what would be the effect on the soap if it not up to normal amounts required.

  31. Thanks for the teaching. Please, how do I correct a liquid soap that is corrosive on the skin after production?

    1. Soda Ash helps for that…You wont feel such corrosive action if you had used the right quantity

  32. Please I am interested in making the liquid soap , how can and where can I get the chemicals mention to make the soap.Thanks, hope to here from you soon.

  33. Thank you for this article but please can you write on production of laundry liquid soap(the ones used in washing clothes) and bathing liquid soaps . Thanks in anticipation.

  34. Please ma/sir… I did mine and its not thick at all… Can I add nitrosol to it again to make it thick

    1. Next time use the right quantity of Nitrosol… also ensure u add water gradually to make up for the volume during general mixing

  35. But wants to ask:how profitable is this business if one actually wants to venture into it? Eg if I spent 2000 to produce 15litres of liquid soap .

  36. Wow… This is highly educative… Many thanks. But I would love to know what chemical or ingredient that would give my liquid soap a transparent/glassy appearance just as the likes of morning fresh and the likes.

  37. During my last production, I mix my Nitrosol solution more and extended the stiring time which makes it to get thick while stiring. But at the end, I experienced BALLS in the soap that I had to sieve it twice before it can be removed. Please enlighten me.

    1. The final solution, if you had stirred very well, you will definitely get a homogeneous mixture

  38. Welldone sir, please I noticed dt after making my soap, the soap foamed very well but d clothes i used it to wash are not very neat as expected

    1. Funny! Could it be the clothes were very dirty too? Because if it foams well, then it should clean well too

  39. Thanks for your help.sirni made my and it was very thick at first but after leaving it to settle down it became light.what cause it.

  40. I have been enlightened by your post. Can I mix nitrosol and leave it overnight? Can I pour more water after the foam has disappeared to get the desired thickness?

    1. Please I dont stay in Lagos, so have no idea. But these things are readily available even in streets. Just ask one or two persons.Thanks

  41. Thanks a lot for this. Hope to try it soon and get the measurements correctly cause I guess that’s the main thing.Please, can I get the PDF

  42. What a wonderful write up on soap making, I really enjoy it and put it into practice but my question is this: what’s make the liquid soap to settle after living it for a while. Thanks, as I look forward to your response.

  43. This is a well done job from you guys. I just read through your materials and I really really commend your nice jobs. Please send to me a pdf copy of the procedure. Thank you

  44. Thank you 1001 enterprise for the free training.
    Any suggestions on how to recover soap that was made without sodium hydroxide?
    Maybe prepare a small quantity using your method, then pour in the old that didn’t contain sodium hydroxide.
    Thank you.

  49. Thank you so much for sharing . I ask , why do you dissolve some ingredient in the water and then leave them over night ? if we don’t want to leave the them over night, what happen ?.

    1. It is still ok if you don’t dissolve overnight.
      The essence of that is to be sure they dissolve well for proper reactions to take place. I hope this is helpful

  50. Where in Port-harcourt can one get good and quality chemicals? Am along Old Aba Road. Thanks

    1. Chat me up on 07069140167…Let me share contacts of those in PH that have done liquid soap production. Perhaps they can be of help

  51. After production of liquid soap and you find out that it’s too thick, is it still good add little water to make it lighter

  52. I came across this guide a short while back, while looking for a step by step tutorial on liquid soap making as someone had taught me before.
    Just finished my production and noticed that there are lumps which I believe came from the Nitrosol. How do I get rid of the lumps please?

  53. Good evening, thanks for your article. I read it and follow the prescription at the end I got a good liquid soap just like morning fresh. Thanks so much.

    1. Dissolve a little extra Nitrosol separately, add to the main bowl of the liquid soap thereafter. Remember to stirr well
