Early Australian settlers had to rely on home-made soap, but of course these old products would not compare with the . highly refined and medicated soaps of to-day, the result of scientific research, and progressive commercial enterprise. One of the Commonwealth's largest soap-making industries was . begun' in 1855 in a room 12 feet square. To-day the firm's fac tories throughout the States 'cover a total area of 120 acres. Basically, soap is a compound of fatty acids as in tallow (animal fat) and.; alkalies like 'caustic soda made from common salt. Oils such 'as- coconut, cotton-seed, palm or whale oil are added.
