    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!

      Works great

      Not clumpy and does the trick! Good quality.

      Works great

      I prefer the beads over the flakes. With free shipping, this is also the least expensive lye I've found.

      Madeline Valdes (Port Saint Lucie, US)
      Great product

      Love the way it flows out of the bottle. Sometimes pouring it from my container to the water it would cling a little but not always, overall good product and price, will buy again.

      Will buy again

      This was the first time I have used this type. Prior I had used the flakes and these rapidly dissolved without much stirring.
