How To Make Transparent Liquid Soap In Nigeria

Making transparent liquid soap in Nigeria is the easiest, cheapest, and one of the most profitable businesses in Nigeria in 2022. Personally, I love making transparent liquid soap because of one major reason, it makes me stands out among my competitor.

Way back in 2020 when I started producing my liquid soaps, I had up to three competitors in my area; two known competitors and a well-renowned brand. But when I sent out my product for souvenirs people are wowed too see something very appealing other than the typical liquid soap they buy.

Not only did my customers love it but I also feel good receiving their compliments. Soon I became the talk of the town as every now compares mine with the renowned brand, most especially when the quality is not that different but the price is very clear.

Enough of the long talk, it’s now about you. Let’s talk about how we can also make you the talk of the town or in your family if you’re not planning to start a business. If you are ready let’s jump right into the preparation. But before then I want you to clear your head of all formulas you’ve learned in the past as they may be contradicting what you are about to learn. Some of these are made by bloggers who have never touched a single chemical before.

And two best ways to fail as a learner are not being able to follow simple instructions and following wrong instructions. You should know that we also are in the liquid soap business just like you want to do, therefore we will only give you what works. So pay attention and read!

Conclusion: Transparent Liquid Soap Production

This transparent liquid multi-purpose soap can be used for both dishes and laundry, and not many individuals produce it this way. But since it’s appealing and easier to market than the non-transparent liquid soap, it also contains fewer ingredients, which means less technical know-how and speedier manufacture.

It does not contain corrosive chemicals like caustic soda or sulphonic acid, making its production and uses less harmful. Nor does it contain formalin, a cancer-causing preservative used for corpses. Even though the cost price is close, fewer ingredients may translate to a lower cost of production
