Introduction to Soap Bar Technology – Webinar 12 June



Our latest Module glimpse into the Coschem Cosmetic Certificate Course is Soap Bars. Gillian Kühn will be here to guide us through the technology in our webinar on Wednesday 12 June.


Soaps are essential to personal and public health. While Soap Bars must have the ability to be aesthetically and olfactively pleasing, they also need to loosen and remove soil from a surface. Soap bars must also be designed to contribute to good personal hygiene and have a good ability to foam and be long lasting in their format. Formulating soap bars has a lot of complexity, so with this module we will indicate the best way to tackle the most suitable raw materials, manufacturing and processing of a soap bar, which will meet the needs of the consumer.
