DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
Yes, Kirk's also has lye. All true soap has lye. The only thing that will suds & doesn't contain lye is a synthetic detergent. The old term "lye soap" confuses people, because all soap contains lye. The term lye soap usually referred to soap made with lard. I don't know why they didn't just call it lard soap! It isn't as bad as it sounds though. The lye is no longer active. It reacts with the fats & oils to form soap. Ingredient lists will sometimes list sodium tallowate (lye/beef tallow combo). Sometimes you'll see sodium cocoate, that is coconut oil/lye soap. Usually any word that has -ate at the end is the oil mixed with lye. On the Dr B label they call it "saponified organic coconut oil. Saponification is the process that turns lye/oils to soap. That is probably too much info!
