As is the case many products, ComStar was approached by a major hardware chain to create the world’s best lye-based product to be used as a drain opener and soap making ingredient. The chemists went to work and soon had an “a-ha” moment.

ComStar brainiacs figured a properly configured bead would be the silver (or white) bullet for clogged drains. Flakes were soon produced to provide a user-friendly base for making handcrafted soap.
