No. Lye is needed to make any form of handcrafted soap. The important thing to remember is that no lye remains in the final bar of soap. Just a pure, clean and long lasting bar of soap.
It depends entirely on you as the bath lover or shower taker. Handmade soap will last anywhere from several weeks to several months. The bar will lasts longer if not set directly in a shower stream or on a soap dish with the ability to dry between uses. Cure time makes a big difference. Longer cure time means longer lasting bar.

NO PALM OIL
The palm oil industry plays a large role in human induced climate change as palm oil plantations have cleared some of the worlds most precious, carbon capturing forests. Scientists predict that the fragile orangutan population could become extinct within our lifetime if we continue to destroy their home and natural habitats for palm oil plantations.
