"We came to us to dispel the notion that soap from boiled bones? - Smiling deputy director for commercial affairs Tatiana Poleychuk. - Indeed, so far this still goes Soviet myth. Course, this is all fantasy. Most important for the production of natural soap - a fatty materials : animal fats and vegetable oils. "Commercial (brown) soap made from technical fats, toilet - from conventional animal fats and vegetable oils. fats on GTL comes with almost all the meat-packing plants in Belarus, Gomel fat (and it is adjacent to the fat, and is recognized by the characteristic smell) in total make up a small part - a maximum of 20%, says the head of the marketing department combine Xenia Kovalev. Fat comes to the plant here in this form (samples from the laboratory GTL) last year JSC "Gomel fat factory" was 80 years old. This is the largest production in Belarus soap actually a monopolist. Therefore, the Company's products can be found, perhaps, in every store across the country. In Belarus there are still made, but there are doing very small amounts of soap. GTL competition are rather imported products, especially Turkish and Ukrainian. Supplied Gomel soap and export. Especially large volumes (and they are from year to year increase) go to Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Lithuania, Uzbekistan, Russia and even the United States. "With America have been working for a long time, - says Tatiana Poleychuk. - In the States sent teams of containers in which - different Belarusian products to the network there the Belarusian shops, including our soap. Soap is exported to 10 countries. " We leave for the production, which show the process of boiling soap, "and from". "We used to be proud of that our natural soap - only from animal fats, today is proud to say that we produce and 100% vegetable soaps, which included rape, coconut, palm kernel oil, - says head of production Helen Husak and leads us into Burtovoy department. In the 60-ton tanks today as a long time ago, in Soviet times, boiled soap. in piles charged with 30 tons of raw materials during the cooking process is a complex chemical reaction - saponification. Burt, which is brewed soap base

By the way, the smell in the shop is absolutely normal - soap

Over the shoulder because of the abundance of foam to closely monitor, or can "get away" to the outside. But there are leaks in the production was not there. "In general, it's very similar to cooking borsch, - says the head of a soap shop Alexander Kurako - there is a special spatula, which interfere with this soap-boiler" soup. "All the ingredients are served in the sequence. After cooking a shoulder is 36 hours until the glue settles soap, which, as leaven is used in the formulation of a new collar. And so almost indefinitely. Until eventually glue it sent on the soap. And earlier this glue sold to builders who added his in cement. All this - the old technology. now moves to another GTL process of making soap - direct saponification. The plant has installed a new Italian line saponification, cooling and soap chips, and now under the control of the Italians carried out commissioning. Raw material to be used is the same, Simply cut cooking time and, therefore, energy consumption. At GTL is a planned transition to the new technology of the production of soap.

The equipment of the new integrated line saponification, cooling and soap chips capacity of 3 tons per hour

The next office is located on the floor below. Soap mass enters the vacuum dryer, where, after drying becomes white. Next comes the big meat grinder, and the resulting pellets are ready to come to the shop soap. As such, the soap - the most natural. Without fragrances and dyes. Soap in green packaging is just such a "virgin" part, tell employees - ideal for allergy sufferers. soap in another department with different components (extracts, flavorings), its color and smell. Soap flakes, and then produced from her "soap bar" is cut or stamped and turned in a pipelined manner pieces of soap. Here they applied the brand logo. soap bar Warm "soap bar" bends easily in the hands of the chief of production of Helen Husak Another option for sensitive - baby soap with the addition of only natural extracts and tinctures. There is also a children's soap with the addition, though gentle, fragrance free. But most of all flavors - a cream-soap. Anyhow workers say: "We do not know in our soap anything that would be harmful." soap on the shelves of the museum, which is that there is a soap-shop - all Soviet childhood friend of "Cheburashka" and small myltsa that were in the "bed" set Belarusian trains. Now this soap is not made. From new products - soap with silver ions. "Thanks to these ions is achieved antibacterial effect, and unlike triclosan, which is usually added to these needs, the silver ions are not addictive bacteria. This soap was presented at the exhibition of innovations," - says Helen Husak. There is a soap scrub, which, by the way, used organic coffee "Jockey". interesting project GTL - liquid soap. It is designed specifically for use in the kitchen. Xenia Kovalev says it removes smells good onion, garlic and fish. Missed only at the plant the ability to provide all the kindergartens and schools liquid baby soap (it only recently the parents have to buy into the educational establishment). This soap is not produced. For the production of such products need to buy more automated production lines, said Deputy Director of Commercial Affairs GTL Tatiana Poleychuk. As for quality control, then it begins to control the input of raw materials. Soap-boiler assure that the requirements for fats, fit for the production of soap, are often an order of magnitude stiffer than the food industry. And times when Rancid fats and vegetable oils are returned to the supplier, are not uncommon. Checking if the raw materials and the content of radionuclides.But the staff of the central production laboratory note that refunds due to exceeding the permissible level of radiation on their memory was not. Chemical engineer Angelica Hetman calms reporters: "Fats and oils do not accumulate radiation - it is their property." Head Oleksandr Kurako soap shop and head of marketing Xenia Kovalev finished soap is checked for the content of fatty acids and alkalis - the laboratory is at each shop. Employees of the Gomel fat plant stress that Homel soap and today is brewed according to the strict Soviet guests (not to TU, like foreign manufacturers). And as proof of his words say that antenatal gynecologists still advise women to use baby soap Gomel. Original taken from here.
