It is vitally important that you use only quality Sodium Hydroxide (Lye) when making soap. Essential Depot’s Sodium Hydroxide (Lye) is manufactured in the U.S.A. by a very large reputable chemical company. The manufacturer’s specification is 96% minimum Sodium Hydroxide strength. The typical Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) strength received from the manufacturer by Essential Depot is between 98% and 99%. Sodium Hydroxide from China or Mexico can vary by greater percentages.
Essential Depot has filled over 100,000 orders from soap makers with its high-quality U.S.A. made Food Grade Sodium Hydroxide (Lye). This has enabled Essential Depot to offer the better quality product at a lower price than its competitors.
