  • Soap is a surfactant used in conjunction with water for washing and cleaning that historically comes in solid bars but also in the form of a thick liquid, especially from soap dispensers in public washrooms.
  • Soaps are useful for cleaning because soap molecules attach readily to both nonpolar molecules (such as grease or oil) and polar molecules (such as water). Although grease will normally adhere to skin or clothing, the soap molecules can attach to it as a "handle" and make it easier to rinse away. Applied to a soiled surface, soapy water effectively holds particles in suspension so the whole of it can be rinsed off with clean water.
  • Handmade soap differs from industrial soap in that, usually, an excess of fat is used to consume the alkali (superfatting), and in that the glycerin is not removed. Superfatted soap, soap which contains excess fat, is more skin-friendly than industrial soap; though, if not properly formulated, it can leave users with a "greasy" feel to their skinn water.
  • Soap is produced industrially in four basic steps : Saponification, Glycerine removal, Soap purification, Finishing.
  • Soap has been manufactured by means of the reaction between an alkali, nowadays caustic soda, and animal fats or vegetable oils such as tallow, coconut or palm kernel oil. This process is known as saponification, and in a modern soap-making plant it is carried out by mixing together the oils and alkali, and then heating them under pressure to around 130?C.
  • The basic ingredient of soap is fat. Any good animal fat and some vegetable fats may be used. Fats most commonly used include low grade fat from recently killed animals, bacon fryings, and roast drippings.
  • The soap industry includes companies primarily engaged in making soap, synthetic organic detergents, inorganic alkaline detergents, and crude and refined glycerin from vegetable and animal fats.
  • The soap market is divided into true soaps (a combination of fat and a caustic material) and non-soapy detergents (largely petroleum by-products). 
  • The market for soap products is largely mature in developed markets and displays stagnant growth. The growth potential in developing countries is huge, but there are many obstacles to expansion.
  • The world market for soaps and detergents was worth US$ 88 billion in 2000 Asia, Western Europe and North America account for about 87% of total industrial soap consumption . 
  • The increasing trend toward added-value products has also boosted market value. To counter the growing threat from supermarket and chemists' own labels which have become increasingly sophisticated, leading manufacturers have stepped up their new product development programs with brand extensions and re-launches of core brands, focusing on added value and convenience - for example, liquid handwash soaps with antibacterial, moisturising and deodorising properties are offered in easy dispensing bottles.
  • In the toilet soap market, new product innovations such as liquid soaps, soap-free synthetic detergents and no-wash soaps have taken an increasing share of the market from traditional soap bars.
