Soapcalc is an awesome resource for soap making. But how should you use Soapcalc to formulate shaving soap? What do the numbers and factors displayed mean? How do you calculate lye ratios with Soapcalc?
This is part of the process, though. It’s easier to establish a foundation and manipulate one or two things at a time in subsequent batches. When something goes wrong, this limits the number of possible culprits.
Now that we’ve got a solid foundation, it’s time to get a little more creative!

If you’re new to soap making, it’s still a good idea to start with a base recipe to work from. That way, you can make small adjustments and observe their results.
