Ingredient Concerns Score
POTASSIUM HYDROXIDEUse restrictions, Occupational hazards, Organ system toxicity (non-reproductive), Irritation (skin, eyes, or lungs) The product manufacturer has listed potassium hydroxide on the product label or has informed Skin Deep's research team that it is used to make the product. In a properly manufactured soap, this common raw ingredient completely reacts with oils; none remains in the product. Therefore, the hazards associated with potassium hydroxide are not considered relevant for this product.

About the Skin Deep® ratings

EWG provides information on personal care product ingredients from the published scientific literature, to supplement incomplete data available from companies and the government. The ratings below indicate the relative level of concern posed by exposure to the ingredients in this product - not the product itself - compared to other product formulations. The ratings reflect potential health hazards but do not account for the level of exposure or individual susceptibility, factors which determine actual health risks, if any.
