Should I calculate it as regular palm oil, or as Crisco with palm oil? The two yield different results from Soap Calc.

Just to confirm what Obsidian said... Spectrum Palm Shortening is just palm fruit oil. On SoapCalc, there is not a brand specific shortening option, but you can use the Palm Oil option from the dropdown list for the Spectrum Palm Shortening.

Thank you - I bought some & it makes terrific soap. But from now on (after I use up the can) I will be going palm free.

They got to me.
