Production of Shower Soap

The main function of shower soap is to clean the body by removing dirt caused by pollution as well as dead skin cells. It must also be able to reduce the excess of oil and sweat. 
In addition, in terms of the product characteristics, it must have an optimum viscosity, not irritate the skin, generate a type of foam that is easy to rinse, and have a pH close to 5.5, which is the skins natural pH.

Production of shower soap

The typical generic composition is:

- Surfactants
- Demineralized water
- Sodium chloride (thickener)
- Special additives as well as perfume, colouring agents and preservatives.
The components and their respective proportions may vary depending on the manufacturer.

The production process starts by introducing the surfactants and the demineralized water into the blender, and heating if necessary. Agitation should be carried out for as long as necessary, with the inline mixer running. Sodium chloride is then added to control viscosity. Cooling of the product is initiated, if necessary, while the additives are prepared in the auxiliary skid. Once a homogeneous mixture is achieved, the corresponding additives are added while slow agitation is maintained. Finally, the aroma is added.
