Soap is the traditional washing compound made from the saponification of oil fats and caustic alkali. Commercially, the fat is sourced from tallow, lard, palm oil, palm kernel oil, coconut oil, marine oil, etc. Although at present, palm oil and palm kernel oil for the local soap making in Nigeria are readily available, nearly all the alkali for soap making is imported.

Soaps are cleaning products that have become an essential part in our daily lives. Cleaning products play an essential role by safely and effectively removing dirts, germs and other contaminants, and thus promote a hygienic lifestyle. There are therefore, indispensable items as a daily requirement in homes, offices, schools, hospitals, restaurants etc

The product is in great demands in Nigeria. Considering the estimated national population of 165 million and per capita consumption of 30 tablets, the national demand for soap is estimated at 4,950 million tablets per annum.

The industry has developed both in the small scale and organized sector. Laundry soap production is usually done by small scale industries and 90% of the production of laundry soap is in the small-scale sector. Toilet soap is however dominated by the multinational units.
