Okay I just tested the soapies again. I am finding no difference other than the palm shortening does not seem to trace quite as fast as the regular palm oil. They are lasting the same, I wash with each at the same time and actually set them on a damp sponge, wanted to see how fast they melt. I am still using the first two which I started testing on 7/21. There is no sign of color change, no hint of dos. Price for me is Cibaria Palm $1.19 per lb plus gas for will call. Smart & Final Palm shortening is $.66 per lb and a 7 min drive. This is certainly a no brainer. Unfortunately I know not all of you have access to S&F and that is a bummer. I wonder if it is the same as Soapers Choice Homogenized
Oh nice! I can't wait to hear (and see) how it goes. The SAP value for regular palm on SoapCalc is 0.142 and you said the palm shortening is 0.138. Did you use a different oil with the 0.138 value to calculate or did you just enter it as regular palm oil?
The sap for Crisco new /palm sap is 0.138 which is what I use for my palm shortening. Your soaps should still be fine with a good cure. If they do not zap they are fineIf this is the wrong way of doing it, then I just made a huge error with two batches curing on my shelf. I read on some soaping article you inputted it as palm oil as long as it was not hydrogenated. Now I'm concerned I have received bad information.
