The Bramble Berry Soapmaking Calculator will accurately calculate saponification (SAP) values for over 90 oils with superfatting ranges up to 20%. It does all the hard work allowing you to
formulate based on what you have on hand or if you just want to try a new oil. You can create liquid soap or bar soap recipes with this app. It will give results for NaOH (bar) or KOH (liquid) depending on what you are making.
The calculator also figures out an estimated amount of liquids (which can be water, tea, milk, etc.) for your recipe. This app comes pre-loaded with some of our favorite, tried and true recipes formulated by Anne-Marie Faiola (aka the Soap Queen with over 20 years of CP soapmaking experience). You can edit those recipes or make your own from scratch. Recipes can be saved and emailed. Recipe resizer works for all recipes; just switch from ingredients to batches, start a new batch, then resize each batch to any size ounces or kilos.
Once you have a recipe developed, you can easily make it larger or smaller to fit your specific mold by switching over to "Batches" mode and starting a new batch, then resizing your recipe.
The calculator figures in grams as well as ounces. Just change the unit of measurement to 'metric' in the Settings if you prefer to work in grams. Change the settings by opening your iPhone/iPad settings, then scroll down until you see the Soap app. Click on it, then you'll see the settings screen that lets you set your units.
