hi, i've gone through what is it 63 pages in this soap forum. I don't seem to see the answer to my question, and I have used search nothing really comes up. I would like ot know if having Lye in the soap is good or bad before I go about buying some shaving soap. I have seen some threads that say their soap is lye free, and some others say you can't make soap without lye so its always in there. And what i've read about lye is prettttyyyy scary.. unless I'm wrong so i'm asking is lye good or bad?
