CHEMISTRY

Saponification is a process that produces soap, usually from fats and lye. In technical terms, saponification involves base (usually caustic soda, NaOH) hydrolysis of triglycerides, which are esters of fatty acids, to form the sodium salt of a carboxylate. In addition to soap, such traditional saponification processes produces glycerine.
