Emulsifying Wax Stearic Acid lye calculation

by Vahe

Can I use Emulsifying Wax and Stearic Acid in soap as a base oil and how much lye should I add?


Answer:

Stearic acid is listed on SoapCalc so you can just add it to your list of base ingredients.

Emulsifying wax is a combination of ingredients. I have no idea if it will even produce soap when combined with lye let alone how much you would need. I think you will be stepping into the realm of research and experimentation if you want to add this to your soaps.

Good luck,
Cathy
