Buy some scale capable of measuring in grams. All soap formulas are by weight and weight alone. Four ounces of coconut oil by volume is completely different than four ounces by weight when compared to each other. The weight amount will have more than four ounces of volume.

Please, please do not use volume measurements as your soap will not come out the way is supposed to be.

Oh I wasn't measuring volume in the measuring cups, just using them for holding the things I'm weighing. I'm using a jewelry scale I had for other purposes, but I got my eye on one with a larger display and higher maximum weight.
