About Soap Noodles


Soap Noodles are made from vegetable oils, such as palm oil, coconut oil or olive oil, and/or animal fats (tallow). These are 'saponified', usually using sodium hydroxide, to form a salt of the fatty acids. Soap Noodles constitute the very basic form of soap.

Manufacturers are able to buy basic soap noodles, then add pigments, fragrances and other components to create their own brand of soap.

Once this has been accomplished, the soap is moulded and pressed into its final shape, stamped with the brand and packaged.

Different specifications of soap noodles are used depending on the type of soap to be manufactured e.g. toilet soap, laundry soap, translucent soaps, high-lather, medicated, etc.

The largest sources of Soap Noodles are Malaysia and Indonesia (mainly from palm oil). Other countries of origin include India, Brazil, Southern Europe, China and the Middle East.
