How to Find and Buy Soap, organic surface-active agents, others on Wigmore Wholesale

 

Soap is an essential raw material in the manufacture of cleaners and personal care products, as well as industrial cleaning products. This white solid comes from animal fat, oil or tallow boiled with lye. It is not the same thing as detergent, which is a chemically engineered surface-active agent (or surfactant) that works by suspending oils in water and not allowing them to combine with other oils on surfaces. Soap and detergents are two very different things. Soap is an excellent and natural surface-active agent for cleaning because it has a hydrophilic end (a water-loving “tail”) and a hydrophobic end (a fat-loving “head”). When you put soap in water, the hydrophobic part hooks on to grease or oil while the hydrophilic part remains in solution with the water. This means that when you have fats floating on top of soapy water, they will repel each other because their tails hate each other’s company but they can’t get away from each other because their heads are stuck together.
