Lye Bar Soap A pure soap with no added detergents to irritate skin. Eases discomfort of Eczema, Psoriasis, and dry, itchy skin.

In the past, folks made two kinds of lye soap at home: mild lye soap (like Grandma's) for bathing, and a stronger version for laundry. The stronger version is where all the lye soap jokes originated.

Five reasons to use only pure lye soap for face and bath Soft, supple skin - improves complexion, helps reduce wrinkles Itchy skin of psoriasis, eczema, or dermatitis Summer heat rash or winter dry itchy skin Creamy lather really feels good on skin Economical - lasts about a month

Lye is used in the making of all soaps. During the process of changing the oils into soap, called saponification, all of the lye is used up in the finished product. It is during the saponification process that natural glycerin is created. While most commercial soap manufacturers remove much of the glycerin from their products, Grandma's Lye soap retains all of the natural glycerin. That is why Grandma's soap is pure soap and very good for your skin.

Cheaper soap is not better soap. Commercial soap manufacturers have found ways to reduce the cost of soap by adding sulfate detergents and other additives. While detergents are great cleaners, they remove the natural oils from the skin and may cause your skin to be dry and itchy.

People who have used lye soap for years say the uses for lye soap include placing a little lather on mild sunburn to pull the heat out, placing a bar of lye soap at the foot of the bed under the sheets where the legs rest to relieve leg cramps, and placing some lather on mosquito or chigger bites to relieve the discomfort. In addition, lye soap can be used to clean and soften leather tennis shoes by simply lathering up a cloth, rubbing on the shoes and wiping off with a damp cloth. For light laundry stains and ring-around-the-collar wet stain, rub lye soap on, then launder.
