The Manufacture of Shampoo

Soapless shampoo or synthetic detergents are usually made from one of three things...

1. Triethanolamine Lauryl Sulphate
2. Sodium Lauryl Sulphate
3. Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate

...together with light oils and perfume.

A soapless shampoo or detergent is produced by boiling oils and fats with sodium or potassium hydroxide, this makes a hard soluble soap and glycerine as a by-product.

A solvent detergent is made from petrol or Carbon Tetrachloride.

A dry powder detergent is made from simply talc and chalk.
