Soaps are part of our daily used products. Bathing, washing, cleaning, home care, etc. It is a basically a need and serves as a true lifestyle product.
Its uses are numerous. Due to soap's contribution to increased hygiene and wellness, it has become a perfect gift for oneself or dear ones.
Soap making and trade is an export opportunity waiting to be explored. The soap industry has maintained a leading position in the global market in terms of manufacturing and consumption.
Soaps, whichever kind it is, can be exported to other African countries where they are badly needed with huge profit guaranteed.
International markets offer for exporters of soap
The European market for soap grows daily. Europe’s soap imports are expected to continue increasing, with a stable share sourced from developing countries. As Europe’s main importers of soap, Germany, France and the United Kingdom are interesting focus markets. Its strong presence of developing countries makes the United Kingdom especially promising.
Others are Netherlands, Belgium, Italy. African countries too are large importers of soap from Nigeria.
Soap to be exported has to comply with the International Cosmetics Regulation. This is to ensure the safety of cosmetic products in the market.
Although, you may not be responsible for attractive consumer packaging, as importers in many cases will design products themselves to reflect their brand identity, yet, areas such as handling, packaging and labelling are very crucial in soap export in order to avoid rejection of goods which may in turn result in huge loss.
