Soap is the result of a chemical reaction between oils, water and sodium hydroxide, commonly called lye.  The process is called saponifaction.  When saponifacation is complete there is no sodium hydroxide left in the soap.  The soap is perfectly safe to use.   ALL soaps, whether produced in someone's kitchen or in a big factory, are made with lye.
 
Most of my herbal soaps are castile soaps. Castile soap contains 50% or more olive oil.  Since 100% olive oil soaps can have a "slimy" feel, these Castiles are produced with 56% olive oil, the rest being palm and coconut oils.  They are very mild soaps and are gentle enough for a newborn baby.
 
These soaps are scented only with essential oils and some contain natural botanicals.  With time the botanicals will turn dark, but this does not affect the quality of the soap in any way.
