The information on this site is meant to supplement, not replace, proper training in working safely with Sodium Hydroxide (Lye) and cosmetic chemicals. Before practicing the skills described in any of the recipes, ensure that you have educated yourself on the proper safety procedures including treatment of any injuries caused by lye exposure.
A couple of good resources for learning about lye safety are:
- cdc.gov – Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards – Sodium Hydroxide
- sciencelab.com – Material Safety Data Sheet – Sodium Hydroxide
Cosmetic chemicals such as preservatives, cosmeceuticals, and fragrances carry their own risks and should be handled with care and treated as if they were a poison. This means that they should not be applied to skin in an undiluted state, they should be stored safely and properly and disposed of properly. Take care to protect your skin and eyes when using them.
With all chemicals, take extreme care to keep children and pets away while you are using them, and make sure you store them in a place inaccessible to them.
