What is Cold Process Soap?


Why is this soap better than the soap you can get at the store?


What about the lye? Isn't lye dangerous?

lye is necessary in all handcrafted soaps made from scratch. If there isn't any lye, there isn't any soap. It is the reaction between the lye and the oils that produces soap. Once that reaction (called saponification) is complete, all of the lye is converted into soap; there is no lye remaining in the finished soap bar.
