Sodium Hydroxide (Lye)

Size: 2 lb
Sale price$14.99



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 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!

  7. You understand that lye can cause bodily harm.
  8. You have read the SDS and understand safe handling, disposal, and use of lye.
