Sodium Hydroxide, also called lye or caustic soda, is a staple ingredient in the soap making process, afterall, you cannot make true soap without lye.  You cannot achieve liquid soap with this product, you need Potassium Hydroxide instead.

This lye does not meet the food codex! Meaning, it is NOT supposed to be used for German Pretzels or Lutefisk, or Olives or any other food means. I personally have no idea what the difference in food grade versus regular lye is, but I was told this is not the stuff needed for these purposes and we do not sell our products for food means.
