Sodium Hydroxide for Soapmaking

Item #36240240
3 reviews
In Stock
Today's Price: $34.95
Quantity: 
Want to make bars of soap?  You always start with lye (sodium hydroxide).  The lye is blended with a fat such as coconut oil or palm oil.  (Use coconut oil if lots of lather is desired.) A chemical reaction called saponification occurs, which produces glycerin and soap.  As a result (even though ALL soap is made with lye), there is no lye remaining in a properly made bar of soap. 

Includes 10 lb of lye (makes approx. 100 lb of soap) 

Note: Due to postal regulations, this item must ship UPS ground. It cannot be shipped to Alaska, Hawaii or another country. It can never be shipped air

CAUTION: Sodium hydroxide (lye) is very dangerous prior to saponification.  When making soap, wear eye protection and cover your skin.

SODIUM HYDROXIDE FOR SOAPMAKING DESCRIPTION
Lye is made from ashes of hardwood trees and water.  Therefore, lye is an all-natural product.  The benefit of making your own soap is that you can stick with natural ingredients and still have effective soap with all the suds you want!
