Yep, it’s that time of year again. While many people go without setting resolutions at the beginning of the year, I actually like having a new focus each January … even if it is thrown out the window by the time Mardi Gras rolls around. Sure, every year I resolve to lose weight, exercise more, drink less, read more …. I also try to focus on another area of my life, such as professional development, being more spiritual, etc. This year I’ve decided to focus on practices and products that are better for me AND the planet.
We are often asked if our soap contains lye. The idea of lye in a body product scares people, and we get that. But the short answer is … no. We use sodium hydroxide (also known as lye) to create our soap, but after the process of saponification, there is no lye that remains.
