Moreover, the fact that various types of soap products, namely bar soap, liquid soap, detergents, ayurvedic soap, soap flakes & powders, paper soap, etc. have a different manufacturing processes and distinct packaging needs, these requirements increase supply chain complexities for soap manufacturers.
