Best Answer

A french chemist named Michel Eugene Chevreul invented soap. He made an earlier form of it out of pig fat, salt, and oil. :)

I think the Egyptians, around 2,500 wqe. You have probably gotten many answers just like this. Hope I am a little helpful!

One of the first recordings of a soap like substance was in Babylon and a text from 2200BC was found that detailed the making of soap from the same area.

The Ebers papyrus that dates from 1550BC details the use of soap in preparing wool for weaving.
