Can you point me to the info where you found this?I think I agree with the above, but my only concern is that EDTA is a nondegradable ingredient and will remain as is in nature by the end of its mission in soap.
I'm considering adding EDTA to my soap, since I'm moving from commercial to possibly 100% use of organic lard/tallow only. Commercial lard has BHT and sometimes citric acid, the organic (Fannie and Flo: my heroes!) has no additives.
I'm wondering how well organic lard soap will fare; does organic fat mean fewer contaminant that will contribute to dos? Or, do the additives in commercial lard prevent dos in soap, not just the fat?
Unfortunately it will be another 18 months or so before I can begin to answer that question while I observe rate of dos in curing soaps.
