• Does soap contain Sodium Hydroxide (caustic soda or lye)?

    In simple terms, making soap involves neutralising oil (in our case Coconut oil & Olive oil), which is acidic, with an alkali such as Sodium Hydroxide.  At the end of the soap making process, all the lye has been consumed and only soap and glycerine remain.  If made correctly, no lye remains in the soap.
