5 fun facts about soap:

1. Soap making was known as early as 2800 B.C. because there is evidence of a soap-like material found in clay cylinders during the excavation of ancient Babylon.

2. The most expensive soap in world, a single bar of Qatar soap produced by a family-run business in Lebanon infused with gold and diamond powder, costs $2,800.

3. The revenue from a soap and cleaning manufacturing industry in the United States was about $50.75 billion in 2010. Scrub a dub dub!

4. In 1806, William Colgate’s company became the first major soap manufacturing company in the United States.

5. Soap makers today use fat that has been processed into fatty acids as a major ingredient in many soaps. Yum?
