Ethiopian Experience in the use of Distilled Palm Fatty Acid and Distilled Palm Kernel Fatty Acid from Malaysia as Raw Materials for Soap Making


This article records some of our experiences during the total substitution of distilled tallow fatty acid (DTFA) and coconut oil fatty acid, as raw materials for laundry and toilet soap, with distilled palm fatty acid (DPFA) and distilled palm kernel fatty acid (DPKFA) from Malaysia. This substitution was tried out because of rises in the prices of DTFA and coconut oil fatty acid, and in order to have alternatives whenever there are unprecedented price rises in future.
