Steps on producing soaps – The Basics

Making soap isn't complex.

It becomes part of you if you do it again and again. It’s an interesting mix of ingredients; oils, fragrances, colours, shapes, sizes and textures.

Depending on the kind of soap you want to produce, you can add herbs,perfumes and other substances to achieve the right blend for your desire.

In the world of soap making, the soap produced can vary based on the composition . Soap recipes can be changed to get a unique selling brand for your soaps.

Soap production is a science which involves some basic chemistry,it's not difficult, don’t be afraid . Soap is made by adding fats and oils with a chemical compound Sodium Hydroxide.In simple terms it is the product of the mixture of fats and soda.

Common household oils have been used in soap making, they act as a base ingredient in soap making technique. Each oil derives it's unique identity from it's source and because of it's uniqueness produces unique soaps if different oils are used to make soaps. For example, coconut oil, produces soap that lathers ( foams ) well. Soaps derived from Olives are known to produce good moisturizing soaps.


Now that we've identified oils are base to use in soap making, let's not forget about Caustic soda ( a source of Sodium Hydroxide ). It looks like camphor with a slippery feeling,it is a substance that easily dissolves in water. It is sold freely. It is known in the local market as kaffra.It leaves a moist feeling upon touch with the hands. However, I must warn you that this chemical is very corrosive. Do not touch it,ensure you wear gloves while handling it , it could cause serious burns !

Besides Fats and Oils, Caustic soda,the other basic requirements for making soaps is water. The other ingredients called additives are only necessary because of the kinds of soap you want to produce.

To make soaps you need just oils,soda and water.


First put on a goggles in form of a face mask because the mixture of Caustic soda and water releases heat and some gases you need to keep your face from in order to avoid breathing these gases.

To make soap, due to the high corrosive ability of Caustic soda, you need a metallic drum and a stirrer to keep your hands far from the mixture. The mixture of the Caustic Soda,Water and Oil is poured into the drum and stirred continuously until a smooth blend is produced, it should be noted that this mixture produces heat and gases,in the end it leaves a hot viscous liquid. After stirring ,the mixture is poured into soap moulds and allowed to cool ( soap moulds are metallic or wooden shapes for the soaps ).

The soaps are trimmed with knife to ensure their edges are smooth, wrapped into their packaging and can be sold to the market.

Practice makes perfect with soap making so after the basic production of soap described above, try again with different kinds of oils, add scents and perfumes to get different soap formulation and the world will beg for your soaps.
