The Summer Bee Meadow
Advanced Soap Calculator [v2.1]
Now at sbmcrafters.com
This calculator can be used to make Solid Soaps, Liquid Soaps or Cream Soaps and can accomodate
mixed
sodium hydroxide/potassium hydroxide (NaOH/KOH) types and water-only or water+alcohol methods
Calculations take into account the typical impurities percentage found in NaOH and KOH supplies.
Initial fluids calculations are as per "Failor" methods if no alcohol initial batch content is specified.
Specifying an alcohol content by entering an alcohol percent concentration to be used
will switch to the SBM evaporated alcohol method and fluid calculations.
Accuracy of this calculator has been verified to the SAP values as provided by our oils suppliers.
