Sodium Hydroxide is an inorganic compound that appears as a white crystalline solid at room temperature. It is also known as “caustic” due to its strong basic nature and liberates a substantial amount of heat if mixed with water or neutralized with an acid. Its solution is highly corrosive to metals and can cause severe irritation to skin tissues, eyes, and mucous membrane upon exposure. The caustic effect of sodium hydroxide enables the making of soaps through saponification of the fatty acids or oils. Our Sodium Hydroxide Beads, Soap Grade can be used in hot or cold processes of soap making.
