Are you trying to report an issue with the oils not adding correctly? They look like they've added up correctly on our end, so I'm not sure of the problem. Can you explain?

Yes for example in the oil section one recipe in grams it says 50 almond oil, 10.1 beeswax, 25 caster oil, 64.9 cocoa butter, 75 coconut oil, and 275 olive oil equals 949.27... Im not the best with math sometimes but thats wrong. in % its 10+2.02+5+12.98+15+55=100. ill try and attach photos of a before and after recipe and theres post on the board complaining about things not being right.

Hi everyone ......So I'm busy concocting Hybrid soap recipes at the mo, but I've never tried making a batch before. What's the best way to go about it please. TIA x

Hi!
I would suggest to keep it simple. The simpler and the fewer ingredients the quicker you can determine what might be the cause of any problems you have. Once you get a couple of great batches under your belt go ahead and add all the fun options! The things like color, fragrance or natural EO scents, and interesting oils and butters of all sorts.
Best wishes and enjoy your journey!
Please let me know how many grams of Sodium lactate to be added to a batch of 1 kg oil

If you click on the little i beside sodium lactate when formulating your recipe it comes up with a recommended amount in pounds per oil. There is 2.2 pounds per kilo so I usually double based on the amount of oil I am using. for example, if it recommends using 1 tablespoon per pound of oil I use 2 tablespoons for 1kg of oil. Hope that makes sense.
I just started Soaping 1 year ago. I enjoy it. I'm still not sure how to add extra ingredients. i follow my dads recipes. not sure if i can come up with one on my own

In general, add extra ingredients at a rate of 1 tsp per pound. (just don't add too many extras)
