Amen! I have come across some ostensibly generous YouTuber videos that give away recipes. However, when you run the recipe through SoapCalc to check, the properties don't make sense. They may be way too harsh desspite the YouTuber's advertising that their soap is for skin that won't tolerate that recipe they gave. You wonder, 'do these 'generous' people intentionally omit details to deter others ... and encourage sales (because they had special abilities with the 'difficult' recipe)?!'
This reminds me of how my teacher taught my class of complete beginners with only the absolutely most expensive and inaccessible base fats. I know for a fact that the cost immediately turned off many people.
Getting back to giving away recipes; I get the same ugly vibes as with large corporations. I respect YouTubers who either truly give or politely decline for reasons that refer to their business.
