The tablet form of the detergent powder is one of the new delivery systems of the detergent. It is the compact form of detergent powder with highly active ingredients. The tabulated form of detergent reduces volume of the powder. Due to compact format it affects the transportation and packing cost. Thus, we aimed to formulate the unique detergent powder with the chemical combinations of various surface active agents. The detergent formulation thus, contains linear alkyl Benzene Sulphonate (LABSA), alfa sulfo methyl esters, Sodium Tripolyphophate (STPP), Sodium hydroxide (NaOH), Sodium Silicate, and Sodium Sulphate, etc. In our study, the detergent powder is mixed with various disintegrating agents like Corn Starch, Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose (Sodium CMC), Silicic Acid, Sodium Carbonate and Citric Acid. Our compact detergent powder showed better detergency properties. This helps to instantly disintegrate and disperse, when contacted with water. Detergent powder composition in our currently formulated tablets caused effervescences and disintegrates within 30 seconds at room temperature in water. The tablet detergent has shown better performance than market detergents.
