Where can I purchase faso soap?

I am hoping that this product "faso soap" is soon to be made available in Malawi.

I am an American with a humanitarian project we need such a essential, affordable soap. We have already this season alone lost so many to malaria.

Please contact me with news in regards to where I can purchase or even make it. Can someone give me a contact number or email?

Thank you

Diana

I have not been able to find any field tests or scientific backing as to the efficacy of the Faso Soap.

Kindly please go to www.malariaprotection.com where all data and field tests on NOPIKEX® can be found, which started production in Colombia in 1989. Rodrigo Salazar-Botero +++

In the early 1980’s Mr. Thomas Edward Simmons formulated his Soap Insect Repellent ( Mosbar ) which was subsequently patented in Colombia, Canada, the United States, United Kingdom, Venezuela, Panama, and many other counties. In 1985 SALDER S.A.S, Colombia, bought Mr. Simmons’ Patents and technical instructions, thereby, the advent of Nopikex Soap Insect Repellent which is marketed by one of the largest pharmaceuticals in the world, BAYER. However, the highlight of our association was that Mr. Simmons accepted to become our Technical Director, an association that lasted for many years until his death.

In the posts it is mentioned several times the lack of data on soap repellents, therefore, please allow us to provide the data we available.

I would like to mention that in the late nineties Mr. Simmons modified his original formulation by increasing the main active component to 22%, 23.8%, 34.5% and for children 10%.

Hi Diana,

The good news is that Faso Soap crowdfunding campaign raised enough funds to work towards production; the bad news is the soap is not yet commercialized, as the crowdfunding ended on May 2016.

The start-up is based in Ouagadougu, Burkina, and can be contacted at fasosoap [at] gmail [dot] com

If soap availability or affordability is a problem in the community you are working with, using ashes is a viable alternative for hand washing and was discussed in this thread.

Reducing mosquito breeding sites by improving surface drainage and waste disposal practices (e.g. from uncontrolled dumping to the use of a waste pit) is also important, especially if impregnated mosquito nets and repellents are not available or too expensive.
