PLEASE NOTE: WE NO LONGER SHIP LYE BY COURIER. HOWEVER CUSTOMERS ARE WELCOME TO COLLECT FROM OUR SHOWROOM. WE APOLOGISE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.

Lye is a crucial part of hot and cold process soap making. When combined with a fat and water, the magic of saponification occurs and soap is created. Using the correct type and amount of lye is correct.
To work out how much to use in our recipe use our free online Soap Calculator.

Sodium hydroxide or Caustic soda is used to convert fats and oils to soap. Sodium hydroxide is traditionally used to make harder soaps that dissolve less easily than those made using Potassium hydroxide. Despite both being called 'Lye' Sodium Hydroxide and Potassium Hydroxide are not interchangable in soap recipes.
