In 1977, a handmade soap manufacturer named Robert Taylor invented a product similar to hand sanitizer, that is, put the hand sanitizer in a beautiful disposable container and add a pressing pump to it. After being put on the market, it was welcomed.

At the end of 1979, Taylor designed a smaller bottle and lower price for this product named "soft soap", and sold it as a daily necessity in grocery stores and pharmacies. In addition, he insisted that it be put together with the bar soap, so that customers understand that it can replace the unsightly traditional soap bar.

Hand sanitizers, shower gels, and soaps are all alkaline substances.
