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.

So far I’m living this — simple ingredients and doesn’t leave the face feeling oily or dry!

Krisna Dooley
Feels Great & Works Better

I bought this for my oldest son who has struggled with acne most of his life. When I spoke to him about it later he said it was working well, and when I saw him I could see a dramatic improvement in his complexion. Subsequently I bought one for my husband and I, and another for our daughter. I struggle with dry skin, especially on my face, and I like that my face feels clean and smooth after using it instead of dried out as other face washes did.


Came just as described! I still need to try it for myself, but I love how the bar has simple and natural ingredients!

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.


don't let the smell fool you, it may not smell like raspberry sunshine but it got rid of the dead skin I had on my face. I use to use a foam cleanser + exfoliating sponge in order to get rid of it, but, withing hours my skin would be twice as dry despite having put on lotion. this soap got rid of the dead skin PERMANENTLY. I used it once and the dead skin hasn't come back ever since. very good purchase :)
