Toilet Soap Manufacturing Process

Both continuous and batch processes produce soap in liquid form, called neat soap, and a valuable by-product, glycerine.

The next processing step after saponification or neutralization is drying. Vacuum spray drying is used to convert the neat soap into dry soap pellets. The moisture content of the pellets will vary depending on the desired properties of the soap bar.

In the final processing step, the dry soap pellets pass through a bar soap finishing line. The first unit in the line is a mixer, called an amalgamator, in which the soap pellets are blended together with fragrance, colorants and all other ingredients. The mixture is then homogenized and refined through rolling mills and refining plodders to achieve thorough blending and a uniform texture. Finally, the mixture is continuously extruded from the plodder, cut into bar-size units and stamped into its final shape in a soap press.
