Soap Noodles and Raw Materials
|Coconut Fatty Acid Distillate (CFAD)||$0.00||
CFAD is in liquid form, derived as by-product from the process of refining coconut oil. Fatty acids is purified by distillation. This results in a color and odor improvement of the fatty acid distillate and a dark still bottom cut.
Fatty acids are aliphatic monocarboxylic acids derived from, or contained in esterified form in, an animal or vegetable fat, oil, or wax. By extension, the term is sometimes used to embrace all acyclic aliphatic carboxylic acids. This would include acetic acid, which is not usually considered a fatty acid because it is so short that the triglyceride triacetin made from it is substantially miscible with water and is thus not a lipid.
|Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulphonic Acid (LABSA)||$0.00||
Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulphonic Acid (LABSA) is main raw material used in synthetic detergent industries to produce household laundry detergents, washing and detergent powder, detergent cakes, liquid soap etc.
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.
Industrially, tallow is not strictly defined as beef or mutton fat. In this context, tallow is animal fat that conforms to certain technical criteria, including its melting point, which is also known as titre. It is common for commercial tallow to contain fat derived from other animals, such as lard from pigs, or even from plant sources.
