Why do your soaps contain sodium hydroxide? That's lye! I use lye to remedy my clogged drains!  Sodium hydroxide (and in liquid soap, potassium hydroxide) is an essential ingredient in soap-making. As long as humans have been producing soap, the process has involved mixing an alkali/base (lye) with fat. The chemical reaction is called saponification and results in saponified fats, more commonly known as "soap" and no lye remains in the final product.
