    Hi ladies I need your advice, In Canada it is difficult to find a beef tallow in stores, I found one,
    I know Carolyn is using beef tallow from store, Maybe Deanna can check it up too.
    Ingredients; Beef tallow , BHA, BHT, Citric Acid, and Dimethylpolysiloxane (antifoaming agent) is that one good for soap?
    Is it the one you ladies use for soap. I do not feel like rendering my tallow anymore........ ?
    I do not know what to do, which does not happen to me very often :)
    BHA, BHT, CA they preserve it, but this antifoaming agent , will it work in soap? May it interact with lye?

    The shortening from Walmart has a similar ingredient list, including the anti-foaming agent, and it works great in soap.

    That would be the same ingredient list as the tallow shortening I use
