Lye based Soap

Post: # 596Post Nova »

A lot of soap makers avoid some of the chemicals that goes to make the soap. There are some who make use of the herbal extracts but that is all that can be used. So the lye based soap is something a lot of people want to use as it is popular for the soap. But it is not good for the skin health.

If you have been developing the soap, do you use lye?

Using lye is one of the reasons why I hesitated dabbling in making my own soaps. I had to search & found this for a Lye Safety Guide: https://www.soapqueen.com/bath-and-body ... ety-guide/
I still don't feel comfortable. There are ways to make soap without lye but I don't know how good they would be.

I think a lot of soaps also make use of chemicals so you can avoid that. I think the soap and the powder which make use of the essential oils can be safe too. I mostly try to find such type of the process.
