    Product description

    Sodium hydroxide (lye) is an essential component of making soap. Our sodium hydroxide is 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!

    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.


      Lye is hazardous. By purchasing this product you agree to the following:

      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).
      4. You are at least 18 years of age.
      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.

      Shipping Restrictions

      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!

      D.L. (Portage, US)
      Easy to Use

      I personally like the beads better than the flakes with using goat milk because the flakes take so much longer to dissolve, and it can be difficult to tell if they are fully dissolved or not.

      Donetta Watson, WillowMtSoaps (Clarksburg, US)

      I absolutely love this company. It is so much faster than the competitors and the products are great quality and I especially love all the fragrance oils for my cold process soaps, and micas!

      Great product

      I really liked the sodium hydroxide (lye) I’d purchased. It was 100% lye so I didn’t have to worry about any impurities. Dissolved well in liquid and my soaps turned out beautifully.

      T.B. (Eugene, US)
      High Quality

      One of my go-to lyes for soap-making. I love that this lye does not have much static so you don't have to worry about the lye jumping around when pouring.

      I love that it is in bead form. I like them much better than the flakes I’ve used from other suppliers in the past.
