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!

Being new to cold process soap making, I was a little nervous about handling the lye. After a lot of reading and research on lye and the safety precautions I finally felt brave enough to get the lye!! So I got the lye and it was packaged with so much care, the lye itself is in bead form that easily pours out of the bottle. There was no mess and it dissolved into the water quite well. I will definitely get my lye from nurture soap for now on, they care enough for my safety to package the lye in a way that it won’t come open in transit. I can not give this company enough praise ... the fragrance oils, colors, clay, everything!!! Shoutout to Raven for being awesome and always packing my orders with so much care. Thank you!!!!
Easy to pour
I can pour straight from the bottle for easy measuring. No dust or clumps. I used this for CP soap. Great product!
Used this product for CP Soap and it dissolved wonderful.
So very happy you carry the bead lye it's the only kind I like to use.
