After working for 10 years as a biochemist, conservationist Monique Kofksy left her job to spend an entire year iterating and crafting 3 different bar soaps. This bar was one of them.

So say goodbye to harsh ingredients, and artificial chemicals, you don't need them anymore. Now you can use this as your daily facial cleanser to promote skin health, improve acne, and clean pores right in front of your eyes.

Let's give bars a comeback, and support sustainable manufacturing while we do it. Not only does Butter + Lye do everything they can to reduce their carbon footprint and manufacturing waste, but they use their profits to plant trees and donate to homeless shelters.

4 oz bar, which is larger than most.

100% Natural | Fragrance Free | Cruelty Free | Vegan

About The Brand

Not only does Butter + Lye do everything they can to reduce their carbon footprint and manufacturing waste, but they use their profits to plant trees and donate to homeless shelters.

The Environmental Problem

Home care products like facial cleanser require 29 billion plastic bottles annually. These bottles either still exist on the earth somewhere, or have been burned.

Some reasons we love bar soaps so much is that:

Most liquid soaps are 75-85% water with just a bit of concentrate. This means that when we’re purchasing hair wash, we're practically just buying water, all wrapped up in heavy plastic and transported hundreds of miles.
On average, the production of liquid soap requires 5x times more energy for raw material, has a 10x bigger carbon footprint, and uses almost 20x more energy for packaging production than traditional bar soaps.

liquid soap contributes to much more ecotoxicity, ozone depletion, and eutrophication potential than bar soaps.

Our bar soaps aren't petroleum-based, which is common for liquid soaps.

Most liquid soaps contain palm-oil. Palm oil is one of the major drivers of deforestation, destroying some of the worlds most diverse forests, and destroying the habitat of several already endangered species.

Good, but..

It’s definitely a good soap and gets the job done. I only use it on my body, as I’m very peculiar about facial skin care products. I like it, but I feel that it leaves my skin a bit dry after a shower. Or maybe not after, but right after I wash it off during the shower? I guess I’m just not particularly fond of being squeaky clean, even with how oily my skin can be. Apart from that, the smell is a bit unpleasant. I always use unscented products, and I’m glad that this one doesn’t have any added fragrances (I think), but it just isn’t the most pleasant smell. Luckily it doesn’t make me smell bad in any way. It is soap, after all.

Holy Crap!!

This works so well! I have never had my skin be so clean that it literally squeaks! It's amazing!


My only regret about this miracle soap is that I wish I had known about it sooner. I have been overpaying for name brand cleansers for far too long. This heaven-in-a-bar instantly softened my skin and I’m already noticing my pores clearing up and shrinking, and the oil control is *chef’s kiss*.

Will never buy any other bar again!

I am so glad I stumbled on this brand. I’ve never owned a single soap that has made my skin feel as soft as butter and lye. I’m not exaggerating when I say I won’t be ordering a bar of soap from anywhere else ever again.


Oily skin and acne prevention have been a main concern of mine since I was a teenager. I’ve always used acne face wash products, but over the years, they’ve gotten too harsh. This charcoal bar is the perfect solution! I use it daily and it visibly keeps my oil and acne under control without the extra dry feeling. My skin feels smooth and soft after each use. I love this bar and highly recommend!
