Not to worry, sodium hydroxide is neutralized during the saponification process. The soaps cannot possibly be made without the use of sodium hydroxide. Any and all soaps, at one time or another, had some sort of lye in it. We scent our soaps with only essential oils, unless fragrance oils are noted or specially ordered. Always use caution whenever using any products with essential oils. Also, make sure you are aware of essential oils and how they may affect your body or medical issues. This is especially important for pregnant women, nursing mothers, and small children. The amount, or strength, of the essential oils varies by recipe or by the essential oil itself. In addition, we strive to create natural product by using natural herbs such as colorants. Some colorants will wash with the same color as the bar of soap (i.e. brown soaps with give your bath water a brown tint). Not to worry, this is normal. From time to time, we will top some of our soaps with natural floral or herbal ingredients, like lavender buds, which usually washes off during the first wash.
