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!

This is one the the best lye I have use. The beads are so small and easy to work with. Given the size of the beads they dissolve so easily when mixed which causes a better bar of soap
No issues with this product love the smaller beads over the flakes.
NaOH tiny beads
I have been using the NaOH flakes but found this to be easier to work with - though a bit of static will cause the beads to fly out. I will try wiping the container with a drier sheet prior to use. I wish this came in a larger container (2 lbs).
Great lye but...
I really like this lye! But there wasn’t 16oz in the bottle my Recipe called for 14.97 and I only had 14.65 in the container so I had to open another one to finish my recipe. I will be purchasing the 50lb as soon as it’s available.
Oh no! This shouldn't happen at all! I'll be writing you personally to rectify the issue. I apologize for this, Courtney!
I love the containers it came in. And was simple to use
