I am wanting to try using beeswax in a recipe, the hardness of the recipe is 33.5, and strangely to me, when I add 1.5 tsp. to a 16 oz oil recipe it comes out of soapcalc like 2 points softer. I have also ran it through exchanging equal olive oil for beeswax rather than just adding to....Olive oil is clearly much softer than an equal amount of bw, so is this just a quirk in the calculator? Does it even harden the soap at all. Am I missing something here? Please help, something that should make sense is not making the sense it should.
