Do you sell lye soap?
Well, yes, technically, all our soaps are lye soaps. Read on:
Sodium hydroxide, or household lye, is a crucial part of cold-process soapmaking, which is used to convert the base oils into real soap. Glycerin, which is a by-product of soapmaking, is formed through the natural process of saponification. Glycerin contains humectant properties, which means that it helps with pulling moisture from the air, in turn promoting softer and moisturized skin. When the soap is fully cured, the lye has been completely transformed, and there is no longer any remaining in the finished product. Our soaps are superfatted with 5% or more extra moisturizing, conditioning oils and are allowed at least 4 weeks to give you a mild bar that will be gentle on your skin.
Will the soap melt if stored in high temperatures?
No, the soap is stable and will not melt; however, if left exposed to the sunlight for an extended time, the scent may dissipate, at least on the surface. Once in use, the soap will usually release its scent. The solid balms and lip butters should be stored at room temperature; as they are beeswax products, they will get soft if warmed, and temperature fluctuations can sometimes cause the shea butter in the balm to become grainy.
