Sodium Hydroxide (Lye) - Read the tab about Lye
Because our soaps are made of 100% natural oils they need to be drained well after use and not left in a bowl of liquid!
We recommend using a soap dish if you are storing the soap in the shower or on the hand basin, preferably one with drain holes to allow the water to drain away or at least into a holder beneath which you can empty.
By ensuring the soap is not left in a pool of water, you will get a longer life out of your soap and it will not "melt" prematurely.
All proper Soaps are made using Sodium Hydroxide or Potassium Hydroxide. This saponifies during the process with the oils and water and by the time your soap is a hard bar or finished liquid soap, the Sodium or Potassium Hydroxide has evaporated from the soap and has turned into bi products including glycerine.
Another name for the combination of Sodium or Potassium Hydroxide and Water is called Lye, or you will see it as "Saponified Oils".
A soap made without lye is made with either animal products like Tallow or a combination of detergents, surfactants and emollients from laboratory produced synthetics. Technically, it does not therefore meet the definition of soap.
People are sometimes worried about Sodium and Potassium Hydroxide. In a properly made soap it is completely absent from the soap once you buy it. We are actually not required to disclose lye, or sodium hydroxide as an ingredient because it is no longer in the finished product, however Kahuku believes in full disclosure.
Sodium Hydroxide can actually be found in food, as it is used in curing processes, and also adds "crunch" to some products like Pretzels.
Kahuku Products are free from animal products, detergents, and synthetically produced ingredients.
Kahuku is committed to keeping our shipping costs as low as we can.
We are further committed to the environment, waste, and sustainability. This means we will not use courier bags, plastic wrap or cushioning, tape or any other non biodegradable product.
