Default ROE- Used Twice in Soap Making?

For those of you who use ROE, do you use it in both your shelved oils and your soap? Or skip it in soap if it's already in some of the primary oils?

Default Just once

I add ROE to my liquid oils as soon as I open them ~.05%, and that's it.

If you use ROE in all of your fats before storage, then don't add ROE to your soap. If you use ROE in some of the fats and not in others, you can add the "missing" ROE when you make soap. But don't double dose.

ROE is an antioxidant at the correct dosage, but if you use too much of any antioxidant, it can actually promote oxidation. So the right amount is the right amount and too much can be trouble.
