Glycerin cleans and moisturizes your skin without clogging your pores, and is very gentle on the skin making it suitable even for those with very sensitive skin.  

Sodium Hydroxide – Sodium Hydroxide commonly known as Lye is required to make soap. Without it, you cannot have true soap! When soap is made by combining sodium hydroxide (lye), water and oils, a chemical reaction occurs called saponification. The result is soap with naturally retained glycerin (a by-product of the soap making process). Once the soap has gone through saponification and cured, the sodium hydroxide having done its job, is no longer is present in the soap. We choose to list Sodium Hydroxide on our soap ingredient labels to inform our customers of each and every ingredient used to make your soap.
