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.

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.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Whitehorse, YT Canada  
Pick up a 5 gallon bucket with lid and transfer your lye into it. Keeps well.

Works great but be careful with 50lb bag July 13, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from BC  
I purchased the 50lb option after getting sick of buying the 6.6lb option and getting so many small jars. The 50lb lye comes in a big plastic bag and you must be careful to not let moisture get in otherwise its useless which is what happened to me when I stopped soaping for a month or so and then went to make soap yesterday and my soap turned out soft because i realized my lye was clumpy...now I have to throw out this 30-40lb bag of lye...what a huge waste of money.
