What do you mean your soaps are unscented? What do they smell like?
I refer to my soaps as unscented because I do not include any additional essential or fragrance oils. For the most part my soaps smell like soap. Some of the soaps with fragrant inclusions like coffee or teas may have a faint scent when in use, but they all rinse clean without a trace of scent on your skin.
Why is there lye in your soaps? Isn't it a hazardous material?
Well, yes, but hear me out. All soap is made with lye. There are no exceptions to this rule. Lye or sodium hydroxide is most commonly known as a drain cleaner, but also plays a role in the soap making process. A lye solution and oils are combined and a chemical reaction takes place called saponification. The lye and the oils undergo a chemical change and form a salt that we commonly know as soap. Don't worry, a properly made soap does not contain any lye in the finished product.
