The Manufacture of Soap and Cleaning Products, Wax and Polishes


In South Africa the manufacture of soap and cleaning products, wax and polishes is a multi-billion rand industry that is dominated by large multinational Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) players. There are currently around 250 players that operate in South Africa’s formal sector which employs approximately 16,000 people, but no statistics are available for companies active in the informal sector.


Environmental Concerns


During the past decade, the manufacture of soap and cleaning products has been the subject of intense scrutiny. One of the primary concerns is that most cleaning agents contain chemicals that are potentially harmful to the environment. Environmentalists warn that hazardous chemicals found in a wide range of cleaning products generally seep into the groundwater when they are flushed down drains, contaminating the soil and ultimately, the food chain. In response numerous ‘green’ product ranges have been developed and progress has been made in the drive to make the industry cleaner, greener and more sustainable. The proposed Chemicals Management Bill and the Hazardous Substances Amendment Bill are expected to have an impact on the sector once they are passed into law.
