I have always added a bit of heavy cream to my soap. Now I am wondering how much it adds to my superfat. Mt last batch was 40 oz. of oil and 2 oz. of heavy cream with a superfat of 5 %. Does anyone know how much this would increase my superfat? Or how I might figure it out?

Yes I did. It answered all my questions. I will continue what is was doing. Don't think I was overdoing the superfat.

Made this Honey Oatmeal Cream. Turned out rather nice. Unfortunately DW thinks it smell like baby spit up. I think it has a nice butterscotch note.
