liquid hand soap | The best way to make Liquid Hand Soaps

People have known soap since ancient times and used it in cleaning and bathing operations, and with the development of detergent science many consumers turned to use liquid soap instead of hard soap, due to its effectiveness and ease of use and the lack of collecting dust and dirt on it.

The principle of hand washing depends on the elimination of dirt and dust and the elimination of bacteria and pathogenic bacteria, and the use of normal water alone can not eliminate pathogens, so use soap and disinfectants to remove microbes from the hands, and the use of hot water in the range of 40-50 °c is good to kill bacteria.

When using a piece of solid soap from time to time may form layers where some types of bacteria are collected, so it has been converted to the use of liquid soap to wash hands and bathe.

The most important specifications to be available in hand washing soap

1- To be soft on the skin and does not lead to sores or redness in the skin, depending on adjusting the Ph well at the value 7 and adding some emollients such as glycerin.

2- Be homogeneous and medium viscosity, where if liquid will flow on the hand and if it is very sticky (in the form of gel) it will skate About the hand.

3- To be effective in cleaning and that depends on the active raw materials used such as texapon SLES.

4- Has the ability to eliminate germs by adding some effective disinfectants against germs.

5- It must have a beautiful smell as the smell is important for marketing Product and attract customers.

Raw materials involved in the manufacture of 100kg liquid soap for hands and body:

  • Texapon 14 kg SLES 
  •  1.5 kg CDEA 
  • Glycerine 0.5 kg
  • Ethylene Glycol Distarate 700 g
  • Betaine (pb4) 5 kg
  • Preservative (Parmitol) 100 g
  • Pigment is about 2 g
  • Perfume 600 g
  • A solution of table salt is added gradually until the desired viscosity is obtained.

The method of work :

  1. We fill the mixing barrel with 80 kg filtered water.
  2. We add 14 kg of SLES , which is an active substance, and mix well until you are sure that the texapone is completely dissolved.
  3. We add 1.5 kg of CDEA , which is an active substance that is no-color, and plays a role in viscosity and emollient.
  4. We add 0.5 kg of glycerin, which is a softener on the hands.
  5. We add 5 kg of Betaine PB4, which is a foaming booster that gives abundant lather to the soap.
  6. We add 100g of parmitol, which is a preservative that increases the life of the product.
  7. We measure the pH of the mixture and set it to a value of 7.
  8. We stop mixing and leave the mixture until the next day, or at least 12 hours, until the foam subsides and we can control the viscosity according to our request.
  9. After 24 hours, add the pigment about 2 grams and the appropriate fragrance is about 700 grams.
  10. We start by adding the sodium chloride salt solution gradually until the appropriate viscosity is obtained.
