@hannie

Could I please ask that you take a look at the recipe below and tell me if its okay? Just playing around for home usage but the quality has been suspect so I'm not using the potions I made!

To make 5 litres of general purpose liquid soap
[list]
[li]CMC - 50g/10TSP mixed into ~2litres of water
Soda Soln. - 50g of Caustic soda + 50g of Soda Ash mixed into ~2.5litres of water. I'll say here that I personally though this would be too caustic so I reduced the quantity of both the soda ash and caustic soda by about 80%.
I then mixed the soda solution with about half a liter of sulphonic acid.
This was then mixed with the CMC solution.[/li]
[li][/li]
[/list]
Does this sound right or can you correct me if wrong? Thanks!
(On my first attempt, I also added Texapon; didnt significantly improve the viscosity like I thought it would though!)
 
Re: Soap-making Business In Nigeria by hannie: 10:30pm On May 10, 2011
^ why not use Natrosol?

Natrosol is better than CMC.

Natrosol makes ur liquid soap more glassier, washes ur items more squeak clean than CMC would, one other thing, in less than an hour u are done producing liquid soap if u use Natrosol.

I wait for u to prove me wrong!
Re: Soap-making Business In Nigeria by battleaxe: 7:45am On May 12, 2011
@hannie
I actually use Natrosol though substantially more expensive. I still had the colloids forming but will work on it.
With the exception of your comment on the Natrosol/CMC, is the recipe/formula okay?
Please critic! Thanks.
Re: Soap-making Business In Nigeria by hannie: 10:26pm On May 12, 2011
@Battleaxe

I produce on a commercial level now, I started though from recipes of 40litres of water to certain measures of other chemicals, however from what I see u wrote there are a few things missing to enable u have a standard liquid soap.

STPP

Lauryl Sulfate (used with Texapon and Sulphonic u should have a glassy output)

Formalin (depending on time of usage)

this info I dey give u, u suppose pay money o!

these recipes are awful, the amount of soda ash or whatever u use is based on the other ingredients, you cannot just reduce b y percentages. And why are u still using soda ash if you use any laureth sulphates? Why use Natrosol, when u can use guar gum and emulsifying wax and get better consistent results?

Researc your recipe, it has too many ingredients that raise the PH level of the product and make it unsuitable for daily use which affects you profitability.
Re: Soap-making Business In Nigeria by Onye Babe(f): 11:32am On Jun 24, 2011
Also Formalin in harmful to people's health and as u use it in manufacturing ur health in affected by regular exposure. In most countries formalin in banned in soap.

what has Soda Ash got to do with Laurel Sulfate? shocked

and what has my recipe containing Guar gum and emulsifying wax got to do with Natrosol? are u kidding me? shocked

I produce liquid soap that ARGUABLY cant be bettered by anybody nor factory so I dont understand why u feel Guar gum and emulsifying wax will give more consistent results, as far as I know we are not talking of HOME-MADE LIQUID SOAP here grin

Home made liquid soap is too complicated for you so dont worry about that.

How can u justify using Natrosol in your product? all it does is thicken the product and it is an irritant , I am suggesting a better thickener. I formulate cosmetics including shampoo so I know. your formula is outdated, stop believing your own marketing spin.

a formular that is outdated and yet producing results is better than a formular that NO ONE HERE WOULD WANT TO USE . . .

ur formulating cosmetics doesnt mean others dont, u love to denigrate others forgetting that not only one way leads to Hell grin

Quite immature, I only commented because I was shocked that you use formalin and Natrosol, which we dont use where i work because of the negative side effects and long term health problems. Dont really like slag matches so forget I even mentioned anything.

The fact that u dont use it where u work doesnt mean u should condemn other people's recipes especially when u cant exactly disprove their functionalities . . .

u said Formalin is not good, yet u must love Caustic Soda . . .INTERESTING!

Which Chemical is not dangerous or have its own harmful effects? why is it that precautionary measures are advised?

u really must be an upstart grin
Re: Soap-making Business In Nigeria by Onye Babe(f): 6:51am On Jul 01, 2011
Caustic soda does not cause cancer, Formalin does.
Re: Soap-making Business In Nigeria by hannie: 11:29am On Jul 01, 2011
^ is it only CANCER that represents 'danger' or anything 'harmful'?

even the toothpaste you use has a chemical component whose unmitigated exposure could cause Cancer . . .

when it comes to production, Ubong Edem is the king. Some people even call him the young investor. For over 4 years now, i've been practicing the act of producing soap of different kinds, hair cream, detergent, industrial liquid soap, cold wash, paint products, etc, It was from last 6 months that people started gathering around me, begging me that they can pay any amount to learn from me. I am now happy that i was able to deliver from there till now. I didn't just show them how, i also thought them how those things can be produced in the most-economical ways which is the reason why i studied chemical Engineering at University.

Re: Soap-making Business In Nigeria by Prince Ufe: 6:38am On Oct 05, 2011
the reason why a lot of people get burnt by acid here and there is that some people claim to know when they don't. The truth is that you don't need to pass through the tens of trial and error experiments that some people(including me) have already done in the past, instead, let experts anywhere (including me) to take you to the final formulations that they have. Perhaps, you have the short-cut to success.

@onye baby please send me the most current recipe for soap making safe for people because i want to make money and not harm people inthe process. The best way is once you discover any thing you are using is harmful look for a safe alternative. The alternative may be expensive but human health is priceless.
Re: Soap-making Business In Nigeria by Prince Ufe: 5:04am On Oct 25, 2011
People call me the ''Young Investor'', you can just call me Ubong.
Fellow Nigerians, i am not hear to sell anyone, but i want to say that we should only give out want is the best, not just calling ourselves Prof. I still want to say that the only short-cut to success is by learning from an expert. Don't deceive yourself to think that all the information you'll get on google can be anough, buy books, make people tutor you and see results. I'm not talking about myself, just get experts! The truth is that the future belongs to producers!

Hi guys sorry I stop checking my mail for a while so I didnt see some of the replies on here. I want to post a recipe, that is based on ingredients that can be found in Nigeria. I dont know where you can get them but I suppose you can find them somehow. Try looking for the representatives of croda chemicals, I know of Orkila is a rep in Lagos. Check to see the surfactants and ingredients they have: SLES, Cocamidopropyl betaine, sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, Guar gum, fragrance oil (whatever scent you want) and preservatives (find out the exact one as it would affect the formulation)

I got the contact info above from their website, so I doubt the tel would work. Let me know if can get hold of the ingredients above then we can start from there.
Re: Soap-making Business In Nigeria by Prince Ufe: 5:12am On Nov 07, 2011
using formaline or even formaldehyde to produce soap is suicide. Apart from the bad odour that the soap will be producing, can you tell the reaction between Formaline and caustic soda? Men, the only short cut to success is to learn from experts. Stop deceiving yourself. There are some information that you can't just get on google or forum, but, you can buy books from experts to read. The greatest proof that something can be done is that another person has done it.-Bertrand Russel
