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.
Please Note: As of July 2015, our potassium hydroxide is 90% purity.
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!

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Leigh! Our Potassium Hydroxide is 97% pure. I'm worried if you calculated your recipe based on 90% purity that it is now lye heavy. You may wish to use our lye calculator in the future which has been calibrated to work with our products specifically. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Colin! I'm so glad you love our Potassium Hydroxide! Though, you're completely right the KOH purity percent is not listed on the bottle. Our Potassium Hydroxide is 97% pure. I will email you personally to discuss this further!
