    @Abdullah I guess may giving (better texture / reducing cost/more emollient product/reducing bubbles...) 
  • Isn't there any better option for reducing cost?

  • Any examples?

    It does not make sense, maybe it is soap ( hydrogenated fat with NAOH),  usually a syndet bar contains around 15% soap like a Dove bar.

    In ingredients list it doesn't have NAOH. 

    pH is also 5-6.5

    Doea 15% soap at pH ≤7 make any sense?

    Search Dove, on this website you will see that it contains 15% soap it was confirmed by a chemist that worked at Unilever.
    Soap is a fatty acid salt, sodium cocoate, sodium palmpate... NAOH will not be included in the ingredient list. It would not be the first time a company is not listing ingredients correctly.

    It comes in the form of Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil from the supplier. They are not converting it to a saponified soap.

    The product brings a "soft" feel, emolliency, and lubricity to the syndet bar.

    We used this in a reformulation of a major brand syndet as it was in the legacy formulation.

    Does it matter what Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil we use or anyone will have the same effect?

    Is soft feel & lubricity the only effect of Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil or it has any effect on foam, viscosity and detergency too?
