Hi,
Can someone please tell me the SAP value of glycerine (Palm free)?

I have Kevin Dunn's book and have searched the Internet but I still can't understand how to work this out.

I asked the same question way back when.
:):):)
Thanks Susie.

I am trying to put Glycerine into Soapmaker 3 and it won't accept it under base oils without a SAP value. Does someone know where I am supposed to put it if not under base oils? Or do you just put a random SAP value?

I will eventually make liquid soap when I buy some KOH so I the glycerine has to go under base oils doesn't it?

Maybe I should put this under the heading of Soapmaker 3.

I wouldn't include it in the oils. From my point of view, glycerin is an additive in a shave soap, cream soap, etc. In a liquid soap, it is a water alternative -- you are using the glycerin as a partial or full replacement for water.
