I have seen you make this statement a few times. I think you are misunderstanding the meaning of the term 'cleansing' in Soapcalc. All soap has the ability to clean, even with a cleansing value of 0. Cleansing in Soapcalc can be equated to how stripping of the natural oils on the skin a soap is. A lower cleansing number = a more gentle soap. Also, the conditioning value for beef tallow is 40 and for sheep tallow is 31. So IMO beef tallow is a better choice.I used sheep for the tallow and it has higher cleansing and conditioning than beef according to soapcalc.
