Lye - Sodium Hydroxide
Also know as Lye or Caustic Soda, Sodium Hydroxide is a necessary soap making ingredient used in the production of natural cold process and hot process bar soaps. Also widely used as a pH buffer in cosmetics. Since Sodium Hydroxide can be irritating and caustic to the skin, proper care and caution should be taken when using sodium hydroxide. ie: use in a properly ventilated area wearing gloves, eye protection, and appropriate clothing. Due to its dangerous goods classification, Sodium Hydroxide cannot be shipped via Canada Post and as such will be shipped by one of the Courier companies that we deal with.  Unfortunately we are not able to ship lye out of the country.  If you have any questions regarding shipping this product to your area please contact us at sales@voyageursoapandcandle.com and we would be happy to assist you with your inquiries.

Very good product. November 6, 2017
Reviewer: Rick Hawkes from Kamloops, BC Canada  
I started buying the 1kg containers which is super convenient, and didn't throw them out when they were empty. As the business grew it made sense to buy the 23kg option, and when it came, I transferred the lye into those 1kg containers which works really well. Of course, I needed 23 of them to contain the 23 kg of lye. Have purchased two so far this year and just about to order another one.

Lye August 31, 2017
Reviewer: Princess from Yellowknife, NT Canada  
Love how they package the Lye, having tape on the rim then packed plastic around it.

Came back to Voyageur February 12, 2016
Reviewer: Victoria Fitton from Campbell River, BC Canada  
I came back to Voyageurs lye because it is of very good quality. It goes very clear in water and you never have to use a strainer. I really like the way they pack it into containers. The last place I ordered from had it in plastic bags and containers and it was quite annoying having some of the lye outside the bag. Very messy. I stopped using it.

6.6 lb option January 18, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Manitoba, Canada  
Since I do not have a big container for the larger amount or the space as of yet. It was super convient to have it in three smaller bottles for storage.
