11/01/2016

Caribbean Eco Soaps S.A.S. is a privately owned soap base & glycerin manufacturer based in Las Americas Free Trade Zone complex located in Santa Marta, Colombia. It’s the first and only Colombian manufacturer of soap base “noodles” produced from Organic & RSPO-IP palm oil. Both plants are constructed with Mazzoni LB technology.
The palm oil is produced from independent smallholders associated in 5 Coops and 3 associations located in the Magdalena department. All smallholders fully owned their land and are organized in cooperatives to guarantee a fair income; they are RSPO certified and some of them are even organic certified. More than 400 associates account for 2000 community members.
The oil is extracted and processed in RSPO SCCS and fully segregated sites; located short distance from the soap plant, this structure is vertical integrated and 100% traceable. We offer Identity Preserved soap base, or any other downgrade available: Segregation & Mass Balance.
The supply Chain is fully traceable; smallholder’s harvest the fruit bunches and conveys them to an owned and operated centralized collection facility. There is a full traceability system in place. The crude palm oil is then extracted at the extraction plant and refined at the refinery. The refined oil goes through a saponification process at soap plant. The finished products, Organic Opaque / Natural RSPO Opaque and Natural Opaque soap bases are then packed in 900kg PE big bags or in 25kg PE sacks which are then stored at our warehouse to be shipped would wide.
Agricultural Sustainability is a crucial factor in farming efficient and rational water usage program, soil preservation practises, areas of biodiversity enhancement and shelter, nutrient cycling using compost, integrated pest control management with native biological benefits are all taken into consideration.
Sustainable profit is our objective to create and increase value providing competitive returns, meeting customers’ needs, generating prosperity and contributing to overall economic development.
