Cold Process Saponification Table


Can I make soap without Lye?

The simple answer is, no. However, you can make soap with handling lye in its raw form, by using Melt & Pour soap bases. Melt & Pour soap bases are pre-made bulks of soap, that have already been through the saponification process (the process of mixing raw materials with Lye). Lye is in the Melt & Pour bases, but you will not need to worry, as it’s not in its raw form.

Soap in its simplest form is an alkali mixed with fats. When you are making Cold Process soap, you cause a process called saponification, which is what creates the soap. Without Lye in your ingredients, you have the raw, fatty materials & water sat in your bowl, as they can’t saponify (mix together) without Lye.

Can I make soap with organic ingredients?

Using organic products is just one of the many perks of making soap at home. If you are using the Melt & Pour soap bases, you can choose the Melt & Pour Organic soap base which contains organic vegetable oils, & is free from foam boosters, preservatives, alcohol & harmful products to dry out your skin. If you are using the Cold Process method, you can choose to use organic coconut oil & organic olive oil as your primary ingredients. You can also use natural essential oils, as opposed to synthetic fragrance oils.
