How To Make Herbal Soap

herbal_soapWith the popularity of herbal soap now a days, at least you know that you will have a chance to succeed in this business because first of all it is consumable, second, many people are now becoming beauty conscious as well as health conscious. There are dozens or if not hundreds of types of herbal soap in the market like for example the papaya soap, kalamansi soap, mangosteen soap, lemon grass and other herbal soap that I already forgot to mention.Since the procedure I got for making the herbal soap is very flexible, I mean you can make virtually any kind of herbal soap you can imagine, with a little creativity and ingenuity, you can make a unique or specialized herbal soap.

You need to research the your local library or the internet and find medicinal plants and it’s curative properties and incorporate it into the herbal soap by making herbal extracts which you will use on making the herbal soap. For example, you can create something like a mosquito repellent herbal soap which can last for many hours. So again, without much ado, let me introduce to you the procedure on making the herbal soap.

Materials/Ingredients you will need:

Refined coconut oil 4.5 kg
Caustic soda 3.25 kg
EDTA 70 g
Citric acid 70 g
CDEA 50 g
Light mineral oil 70 g
Sodium chloride 5 g

2. Additives

  18. Hai Mr.Manuel, Evening. I am Ram from Malaysia.It was very kind of you to share your knowledge.I intend to go into fruit soap production on a medium scale approx.20 metric ton.Whats your advice?Can I have a mix of coconut oil and refine palm oil to reduce cost? Regards, Ram

    by Ram on Aug 15, 2011 at 9:00 pm

  19. @ram I’m not sure because some people complain when they use coconut oil but you can experiment on a very small scale and see if the result is satisfactory.
