Science and Technology, Used Cooking Oil, Soap


Cooking oil is one of the nine staple ingredients consumed by the people of Indonesia. According to experts, the dangers of consuming cooking oil by using it more than twice can cause various diseases. Therefore, it is important to make efforts to utilize waste cooking oil so that it has economic value. One of the innovations of using used cooking oil is to process it into hand soap and dish soap. During the Covid-19 pandemic, maintaining sanitary hygiene is a mandatory thing that must be done to break the chain of the spread of Covid-19, such as washing hands and ensuring that cutlery is clean from germs. According to research from Safitri, et al the content of used cooking oil still contains components of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids such as oleic acid and linoleic acid. Oleic acid works to soften and smooth the skin. In addition, oleic acid and linoleic acid function to restore skin barrier function. Therefore, the use of used cooking oil waste as hand soap and dishwashing products is an alternative solution to maintain Sanitary Hygiene. The use of used cooking oil can be combined with aloe vera leaf skin as an additional ingredient in soap making. According to Untari Eka Kartika, and Robiyanto (2018) Aloe vera leaf skin can minimize irritation to the skin due to the continuous use of hand soap and dish soap. This study aims to determine the potential of utilizing cooking oil waste as antiseptic soap and aloe vera leaf skin waste as an anti-allergic agent to reduce skin irritation due to the continuous use of soap during the pandemic.
