The recent move by Betty Industrial Chemicals Ltd to pilestock Melt and Pour Soap Base is timely and a sure way of responding to market demand, a situation ignited by rising consumption of speciality soaps in the personal care industry.
On average, 5 million people in Kenya’s population of 50 use specialty soaps on any given day. And the demand curve is still shifted right, superimposed.
Again, the ever rising demand for the natural, specialty, and sometimes fancy soaps globally is due to the increasing awareness of the need to take care of skin in the face of premature aging, cancers, global warming and the ensuing environmental effects on the inhabitants.
For starters in soap industry, soap base is the soft launching pad to a fulfilling career in manufacturing, and With soap base, all you need is to reheat and add some goodies in it. This is technically known as reconstitution. However, any form of manufacturing (product making) must utilize some expertise and knowledge as to what it concerns. To some extent, the Internet is a good source of information but not every website gives the right information, and therefore, counter checking facts is recommended.
Incorporating Additives to Melt and Pour soap Base is easy but combining them needs proper understanding and articulation. For example, adding glutathione and Vitamin E- all purchased from chemists can be good but at other times it can backfire considerably more. Knowledge about oxidative degradation and peroxidation due to heat misnomer is mandatory to prevent the final product being rendered poisonous or mere placebos.
