Saponin Pea Soap

Stage of Idea conceptual stage

Explain your idea in details:

Countries are in desperate need of sanitation. Especially right now in the midst of covid-19. Therefore I came up with an idea for sanitation Saponin Pea Soap. My innovation was a plant that my ancestors used called changpo or calamus to wash their hair. I dug into it and figured out that saponin could be used as an alternative for soap which was the reason why they used the plant in such a way. I researched other plants with saponin and found out that peas, leek, onion, sugar beet also had it. However I chose peas as the main material for this soap, as peas are easy to grow and are grown in different places. Thus material for saponin pea soap will be unchallenging to gain. Moreover saponin is predominantly located in the hulls of the peas. Therefore the peas seeds could be eaten as food and the hulls could be used as soap. By creating saponin soap everyone could not only gain soap but also reduce air pollution and food or money. Moreover, according to the Guardians pea pods are mostly not used as a result The pea peel wastes, which represent approximately 30 to 40 percent of the total pea weight, are available in bulk at zero cost. In other words by making Saponin Pea Soap we are using parts that are usually used as waste thus reducing food waste.

The finances will be given by NGOs who thrive for better sanitation for all and want to help the economy of countries in need of help as the idea can help the economy by giving wages and generating jobs for those in the country.
