The success in soap manufacturing business is highly dependent upon accessibility of adequate and timely supply of raw materials. No one understands this better than Cosmetics and Detergents Kenya Limited, who, for the last 6 years have been in the forefront in the campaign for industrialization and training advocacy for better manufacturing practices.
As an institution with firm grip on tenets of institutional promotion and self industrialization, we have perfected the art of service delivery in the area of Manufacturing machinery, equipment and raw materials.
We have so far invested immensely in stocking basic raw materials in soap production and every month, we move tons of these materials to medium scale manufacturing companies, especially those whom we have sold machinery to.
Cost of producing a soap bar
With the current market prices of bar soap raw materials, an 800g bar soap will cost Ksh 50 ($ 0.5) to produce. This cost includes polythene wrap packaging. The soap quality is medium in the category of the brands that retail Ksh 110-125/- per 800g bar. It is noteworthy, however, that to realize this input value, the soap maker must purchase raw ingredients in bulk. For small scale producers, the price tag above is slightly higher (about 60 shillings per 800g bar). Nevertheless, a bigginer making soap at the said cost of 60 Bob can still make impressive profits of his soaps given that the sale price surpasses the 30% profit markup. Professional Training is strongly advised for the soap maker to be able to handle and utilize the raw materials properly in order realize the set production pricings
