If you knew how to make liquid soap in Nigeria right now, you are literally sitting on a gold mine, trust me.
The world has changed a lot over the past few months, and as to the question of if everything would return back to normal, I have no answer.
But what I do realize from all of this is how much good there is to be had, if we adapt to that change, and work something out.
Yes, I’m talking about the Coronavirus; you know how it is now, with the covering of the face and washing of hands – not to forget the staying indoors too!
Admittedly, nobody expected this sort of thing, and it takes a bit of time getting used to, but I say we start thinking of ways to keep functioning.
More than that, I think that now is the time to start looking for opportunities, because the truth is this bad COVID-19 does open up some opportunities.
If you haven’t caught the ball I dropped earlier, then staying at home and washing hands part of the pandemic is a huge opportunity, but not everyone is looking.
We wash our hands with soap, which means that the more we wash our hands, the more we would need soap to be around.
Still don’t get it? Soap making is such a great demand right now, that knowing how to make it means big money for you.
Now, that’s why I’ll be giving you a guide on how to make liquid soap; it’s very easy,
without the need to worry much about starting. Within a short while (weeks literally) you’ll be on your way to a liquid soap-making franchise.
Getting Started on How to Make Liquid Soap in Nigeria
So let’s get started on how to make liquid soap in Nigeria, first of all, you would need certain items and ingredients.
These ingredients aren’t exactly hard to get, so you might be surprised that you already have some of them.
- Hand Gloves
- Measuring bowls
The chemicals are the major ingredients you would be needing and they consist of Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Nitrosol, Caustic Soda, Texapon, Sulphonic Acid, Soda Ash, and Sodium Tripolyphosphate. Perfume and Coloring can be added, but those are optional.
Making the Liquid Soap
If you’ve got the items and ingredients ready, the first chemical you would be dealing with is Caustic Soda.
Soften it up by adding water into it and leave it for at least one hour (overnight is preferable). The next chemical is the Soda Ash; soften that too with water and leave for a while (again, overnight is preferable).
Pour out some Sulphonic Acid into a bowl, and then add your Texapon. At this point, if you’re going to use perfume, you can add it. Add water to the mixture and stir well for at least ten minutes.
The next two chemicals that have to soften are Sodium Laureth Sulfate and Sodium Tripolyphosphate.
Soften them the same way you would soften the Caustic Soda, then add Nitrosol to softened Sodium Tripolyphosphate.
You would now start mixing the softened chemicals one by one, starting with the softened caustic soda, then soda ash, Sodium Laurate Sulphate, Sodium Tripolyphosphate, in that order.
When you have one giant bowl of the chemical mix, it is time to add lots of water; adding water at this point is at your own discretion, based on how liquid you want the end product to be.
I would recommend that you let the chemical mix sit for about 24 hours before putting water; it helps the overall quality of the soap when it’s finished.
