PROCESS AND QUALITY FACTORS IN LAUNDARY AND TOILET SOAP PRODUCTION

 

ABSTRACT

This projects is aimed at knowing the process and quality factor in Laundary and Toilet Soap Projection.  Various factors affected the quality of the soap produced.  These include the method used in production, types and nature of oils used, the percentage of the additives in the soap and the ratio at which oils are mixed to react with alkali.

The work was carried out using one type of oil, namely, palm kernel oil for production of laundary soap and a blend oil in the ration of 95:5 (PKO  to soya bean oil) for production of Toilet Soap respectively.  The oil was firstly subjected to various analytical tests.

Using both blended and unblended oil for production of Toilet and laundary soap in the ration of 2:1 of oil to alkali, soaps were produced which varied in quality as a result of either the ratio of mixing, the nature of oil or by both.  Additives like sodium silicate, green pigment, pink pigment, citrolene perfume were added to improve the soaps quality and appearance.

The omo soap samples produced; laundry and toilet soap have some distinguishable properties and these properties were found to be dependent on the different properties of the oils employed.
