Columbus Foods has this: Soybean Shortening - 100% Pure - No Additives
Have any of you used it and if so, do you know where there is a soap calculator that has it in the data base?
Like many other people, I made my first batch of soap using Crisco. It was nice soap! I had added castor oil @ 5% and it really produced to a nice, hard, white bar of soap with a nice lather. But, no one wants to know there is Crisco in their soap (except me and I don't care). I liked the soap and was wondering if I could duplicate it with this Soybean Shortening, but the soapcalc.net calculator doesn't include this one and I am not going to go poking my uneducated curiosity into places it should not go, ya know? I get into enough mischief as is without messing with things that I know nothing about. My son and his family (9 kids) liked the Crisco based soap, but they also didn't like the idea of that being the base. HELP???
