Hi, love using soap making friend, but it's been bugging me - what units are the fatty acid profiles measued in? are they percentages? None of the recipes i have done have added up to 100 - they all add up to between 95-97. If they are percentages, what is that last 3-5%? unsaponifiables, other less common fatty acids?

thanks
Ellie

There are other acids like capric - there's a whole ton of them - in tiny amounts varying in each oil
