how_to_make_detergent.pngBiodegradable detergent powder uses all-natural products that are mild to the skin and clothes and, in addition, are eco-friendly. In contrast, commercial detergent powder contains chemicals such as optical brighteners, dyes, and artificial fragrances that can sometimes irritate the skin.

 

[related|post]According to Leng Aveno, lecturer in soap-making at ESF Cakes and Bread House, the market demand biodegradable detergent powder is high because consumers are looking for eco-friendly alternative products that can give a comparable cleaning performance. With a capital of as little as O700, you can start your own biodegradable detergent powder business to meet this market demand.

 

You only need to purchase the following materials:

• 1 kilo sodium sulfate

• 200 g coconut powder

• 6 ml bilimbi fruit (kamias) extract

• 10 g blue speckles

• 120 ml fragrance (kalamansi scent)

• 5 g sodiumtripolyphospate (STPP)

Most of the materials needed to make biodegradable detergent powder are imported from Malaysia, China, and India. However, you can also buy them locally from soap-suppliers stores in Divisoria, Manila. Magic Ultra is available from ESF Cakes and Bread House.

 

You can produce the kamias extract by fermenting 1 kilo of the bilimbi fruit in a jar with 2 tablespoons of salt. After 24 hours, get the extract, strain it, then transfer it to another container. It will be then ready for use.
