Potassium Hydroxide: Used for making Liquid Soap,  each container has 2 pounds by weight. Potassium Hydroxide, also known as potash, lye, or KOH, is the chemical that induces saponification with fats and oils to create that magnificant thing called liquid soap! Please be sure to educate yourself on the safety precautions and proper handling of Lye before using this ingredient.

Making Liquid soap is a little different than making bar soap. Check out our Online E-book 'Liquid Soapmaking' for everything you need to know to make liquid soap successfully. 

Storage: Potassium Hydroxide is extremely hygroscopic (attracts moisture) so be sure to always keep it in a sealed container in a cool dry place. If left out, it can attract enough moisture from the air to turn completely liquid!

NOTE: When you order this item you must agree to the Hazardous Materials Waiver. This item may only be shipped via FedEx Ground to the continental (48) United States.

Safety and Handling: Visit this post on the Soap Queen Blog for information on how to safely use Potassium Hydroxide.

Lye description
The Lye description should contain the exact concentration of KOH in the container. It should also link to safety and mixing instructions.
