    1. Dear Itohan,

      Did you start producing after going through our post? What quantity of water do you use? This measurement is for 10ltrs. You may have to increase the quantity of your foaming agents for better result ie Sulphonic acid, Soda ash and Texapon also don’t add excess water.

    1. Thank you Elo for your comment!

      I think Nitrosol is the one that can dissolve within 24hrs? If so, no need to allow it for two days. the idea of soaking is to allow the thickner dissolve well.

I really appreciate you for this training even thou I undergo training some month ago on this and it almost the same but I think u can use spoon in making the measurement for them Cus it will b easier. Some shop selling the chemical will tell u they are selling in kg and so on. E.g ¼kg equal to 25 spoon that will make them get correct result that will make u happy.

    1. Thanks Seloba for the tip.

      Now everyone can use spoon as unit of measurement if the want.

    1. Dear Gracy

      We wouldn’t engage you in cheap publicity. Know this that your unprofessional comments would see the day light on HHP but can’t deter us. We don’t sell e-books or recipes, they are released for free. And very soon, our DIY Videos would be released to take our enormous fans by the hand on how to produce all these stuffs still free of charge. May be you can still attribute that to your Mr Strongest, #scumbag!!!

    1. Hi Lucy,

      Formalin is the preservative. You require Caustic Soda because it is one of the foaming agent.

      Please refer to the list of materials we listed.

  63. Hello sir/ma
    The measurement for the chemical used in producing liquid describe above can produce how many liters of liquid soap as given below
    “Soak 1/4kg of Antisol or PAC-R or CMC in 10 litres of water for 2-3 days. Note this must properly dissolve and look like Akamu or Starch before you begin production
    Dissolve 1/4 kg of Soda Ash in water and pour into CMC. Stir until reaction is done
    Dissolve SLS in water to give clear solutuon. Pour into CMC and stir.
    Dissolve 1/4 kg Texapon and pour into mixture above
    Pour 1 litre of sulphonic acid into CMC and stir
    Dissolve Caustic soda in water and stir properly. Pour in above mixture
    Wait for Lather to disappear, then add color and perfume to taste.”

    My question how many litres of liquid soap can this produce though i understand the materials would be measured where to get them. Thanks

  64. Hello sir/ma

    Do i necessary need glycerin for the liquid soap production?

  65. Emmanuel Florence

    I followed up d steps for lunch quid soap and it was successful at first but tried again and got something that is confusing me. after all d mix, I had a good result but two day latter d tickner separated itself from d mix and d liquid soap became like raw egg that has its York seperate from the other part. what should I do

  66. Hello everyone,from my experiences,some people are complaining that there soap use to separate after some days,this is due to d sulphuric acid u poured direct,if u observe is very hot,so my dear l advice u mix it with texapon in a separate bucket, allow to cool down for abt 10 to 20 mins before production (that is before pouring it inside ur antisol)

  67. Thanks for sharing this. very helpful

  68. Bolanle Ahmed
