Is the soap safe to eat?

Yes! It’s non-toxic soap. I’m not sure about this particular bottle, but I know some we’ve used in the past were coconut-based. The chimpanzees do eat things I wouldn’t consider food – like crayons and paint, so we make sure we only give them non-toxic versions of those things and only give them in small quantities – a couple of drops per bucket or bowl of water in the case of the soap.
