I am experimenting with wax in my cp soap because I have decided to try and stop using palm (RSPO) and want to retain longevity/hardness and I like the texture wax creates. I have used beeswax which I love and soy wax,( also nice) but I wondered if anyone had used coconut wax, it isn’t in any soap calcs and I’d like to experiment with it, how can I find out the SAP value?
thanks!

I think it’s a type of hydrogenated coconut oil, like the 92Degree coconut oil, but melts at a higher temperature. That’s just a guess, but if it is, and it’s fully hydrogenated instead of partially hydrogenated, the SAP would be the same.
