      Important points to remember

      • When you are using Sodium Hydroxide for Cold Process soap making, remember to always add the Sodium Hydroxide to the water and never the other way round.  It is often mentioned to not use hard water for Cold Process soap making and so why not consider using Distilled Water which is readily available in DIY shops or Car Spares Shops.
      • We recommend that you take appropriate safety precautions (including rubber gloves and safety goggles) when using this product as it can cause chemical burns.  It should not be used with children.  Please don't let this scare you - just treat the product with the necessary amount of common sense.  
      • We are not selling this as a food product, only as an ingredient for soap making
