Sodium Hydroxide (Lye)


Add to Wishlist


Sodium hydroxide (lye) is an essential component of making soap. Our sodium hydroxide is food grade and in bead form. We chose beads because we find them easier to work with than flakes. They also dissolve more easily and flow out of the container with ease. If static is an issue, wipe your measuring container with a dryer sheet before filling with lye. Our lye is sourced in the USA and is 99.2% pure! See attached CoA for testing results.

You can't make soap without lye! In its pure form lye is caustic. Once added to oils and water, the process of saponification occurs and no lye is left in the final product (soap) if used correctly.

This listing is for one pound (16 ounces) of lye. Lye can only be shipped ground and for this reason, we ship lye to 48 contiguous states and Canada only!If you order this item and you are not in the contiguous 48 states or Canada, we will NOT send it with your order!

  1. You will be using this product to make soap only.
  2. You will keep the product from children and pets.
  3. You will not resell this product (lye).

  5. You assume all responsibility for safe use and proper storage.
  6. You understand lye is poisonous and can cause death if ingested.
  7. You understand that lye can cause bodily harm.
  8. You have read the SDS and understand safe handling, disposal, and use of lye.

Good Quality

I had ordered this lye once before to try out and loved it! Which is why I bought multiples this last order, so glad I did, since it's out of stock now! Like others have said, no clumps and no static (I believe this is due to not only the quality of the lye, but the quality of the bottles/containers they use... Seriously!) I've bought lye from another supplier and have had clumps and static issues, I think the bottles/containers make a big difference! I agree with another review that the quality is definitely worth the extra few dollars. I wish they offered it in bigger (bulk) sizes! ;)


This lye is the best, no clumps and works well in cp soaps.


Great quality of lye. The size of the lye grains makes it easy to dissolve in water. You could shop around and find lye for a lower price, but the quality of Nurtures lye is amazing. Totally worth the extra few dollars.


Awesome products. Very happy with the sodium hydroxide purchased. No static.

It's lye!

My first time using this lye, it performed exactly the way it should. I use a lot of lye and I usually purchase it locally to help the local hardware store, but Nurture Soap's free shipping over a certain dollar amount, plus the generous discount during July are too good to pass up, I'll buy more the next time I order here.
