Given that liquid soap is a product used in almost every household in the industrialized world, it’s no surprise that the global soap and detergent industry amounted to $97.26 billion in 2016. If you intend to carve away some of the industrial soap making market share, though, it’s essential that you follow a perfect liquid soap making procedure with the right ingredients, and make use of high-quality soap making products to assist you in all of the steps in making liquid soap.
At Arrow Engineering Mixing Products, we are proud to partner with manufacturers in the liquid soap industry to supply them with the mixers and mixer accessories that they need to produce a top-quality product.
The Liquid Soap Making Procedure & Ingredients
For centuries, the kettle method was the standard liquid soap making procedure. The procedure involved mixing soap one kettle at a time, however, it took up to eleven days to produce a batch and the final product varied from batch to batch. In 1940, though, engineers developed a new method for manufacturing liquid soap called the continuous process which is still used by most soap manufacturers today.
In the continuous process method, liquid soap is mixed and produced continuously rather than being mixed one batch at a time. Natural fat is separated in fatty acids and glycerin (which is a by-product of the process albeit a valuable one since the glycerin can be used to produce lotions, medications, nitroglycerin, and more). The fatty acids are then mixed with alkali and other ingredients such as fragrances and stabilizers to form the final product.
How Arrow Engineering Mixing Products Can Help in the Liquid Soap Making Procedure
Mixing fatty acids with the other ingredients necessary to make soap requires you to make use of a high-quality mixer. This is especially true in the continuous process of making liquid soap since your mixer will likely be running non-stop for extended periods of time. Using a mixer so frequently means that you will need to employ a durable and reliable mixer that has a long life-cycle and can stand up to the rigors of constant use.
