Sodium lactate is a natural humectant, moisturiser and pH regulator. For lotions replace the liquid glycerine with sodium lactate, in cold process soap, Sodium Lactate helps to produce a harder bar of soap that lasts longer in the shower.

Usage rate in cold process soap: .5% – 4%, or 1 tsp per 500 grams of oils.
