Ingredients: Formulations or Recipes

  • 27 Years plus PERSONAL experience
    If you do the same thing for a living for more than 27 YEARS, what level of experience do you think will you find??
    I can tell you: a MASTERS Level.

    You might find some people on the internet selling some recipes for household ingredients/detergents, but NONE can GUARANTEE support like we can. If you invest in a NEW BUSINESS VENTURE, you would like to know that someone with 27 Years plus experience is looking after you.
    If you make a mistake on a small scale, no problem. BUT, invest R50,000 in your first real commercial batch of household/industrial detergents and it start to turn PURPLE in your driveway, what do you do?? Elmarie knows what you should do, does these other people know?
    Anyway, try not to kill someone by buying some 'crap' internet recipes from a dude in Tembisa or from a "mom with her handy recipes". We do not support or fix recipes you bought from overseas or from these shady sources. (Yes, we get these requests for help all the time, because you can't make a useless formulation work - so please beware.).

  • How will I ever know what these names mean?
    We have a chapter with all the common names for the raw materials.
    Bac 50 = Empigen BAC 50
    (= Quarternary Ammonia Comp. = Benzylkonium Chloride)

  • Sample of what something does:
    We give you a basic functions list.
    Examples:
    "Bac 50" is an Anti Bacterial Agent.

    and a few more examples...
    - "Ammonia" = Cleaning agent in Handy Andy (Please note we DO NOT sell the recipe for Handy Andy, as the words "Handy Andy" is a Trademark, but our "All Purpose Cleaner" will work 100% the same, if you know what I mean.)
    - "Coconut Diethanolamide" is a Foam Booster
    - "Empicol LX 28" - Used together with SLES gives the end product a Rich Cream Foam
    - "SLES" = Foam former and Degreaser
    (Talking about SLES: In Cape Town and Durban there is a scam going where you can buy VERY CHEAP Dishwashing Liquid. What the scamsters do is to just have Water/SLES and some Lemon Perfume with a bit of dye, and then sell this as a FULL product called Dishwashing Liquid. The actual QUALITY recipe for dishwasher liquid contains all the of the following, so decide for yourself:
    Sulphonic Acid - Sles 25% - CDE - Urea - TEA - NP 9 - Formalin - Fragrance - Water - Caustic lye - Salt (fine) - Dye
    ---> If you want to buy the real recipe/dishwashing liquid formulation, we have it. If you want to join the world of quick money or "money for nothing" or mom selling "35 of my favourite and most handy formulas", go somewhere else, we sell Commercial Household Detergent recipes only.

  • Where do I buy these raw materials/ingredients?
    We give you the contact details. We give you the raw chemical/material/ingredient names as used in South Africa, so you can buy from any chemical suplier. We do NOT supply you with our own 'made-up' chemical names, and then force you to buy the chemicals from us to make some extra money off you.

  • How to make Candles:
    Don't spend money on recipes for making candles - there is no recipe, just buy wax and a release agent from your nearest chemical supplier and google "how to make candles".

  • PH testing:
    HTH Quick Test - Buy these from any Supermarket.
    To be the same as water, the PH should be between 7.2 and 7.5.
    When the PH reach 9 or higher, the colour(dye) of your products will start to disappear after a few days. PH testing is important for consistent results.

  • Type of formula mixes:
    10% of the formulae in the book require heat as part of the process. Then we are talking about a normal gas stove or an electrical stove, water boiling or other ingredients going up to 60 degrees C. You will need a thermostat for those recipes.

  • Tanks and mixing equipment:
    Please have a look at these used chemical processing equipment for sale. Click here--> Used stainless steel tanks and mixers that can be used for mixing and storing chemicals and completed detergents..

  • Payment and E-Book - Buy process:
    1) South African, Lesotho and Namibia orders directly in SA bank.
    Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique and Swaziland please contact us first(If you make payment in South Africa via friend or family, we'll email the books directly to you).
    PayPal or Teletransfers also allowed, but we'll issue a new invoice to you as you also cover our banking costs.
    2) Send me an email, or download your invoice from the Order Here page
    3) Payment into a Standard Bank or FNB account.
    4) We email you the e-book.
    5) For your info: It is much safer to buy from a South African-based trader since virtually all local sellers accept bank transfers as a form of payment. With the latest FICA regulations, the buyer has recourse should something go wrong as the buyer has access to the sellers banking details.
    6) This is our business and we've been selling these ingredient handbooks online since 2007, so we do not send the e-book until the funds cleared into the account - sorry - no money, no household ingredients formulae book.
