Sodium hydroxide (also known as Lye and Caustic Soda) is a highly caustic base that can burn the skin, but can also be safe when handled properly. It's advised to take extra precautions when handling lye. Please rest assured that the soaps have no caustic properties after chemically reacting with the oils in the correct quantities 🙂

We recommend that you wear safety equipment such as an eye-shield, socks, long sleeves and an apron while dealing with lye to ensure that your eyes/skin is well protected.
