pomace vs non-pomace olive oil
Trying to find out if I can use pomace olive oil for soap making. I've read two different aspects.
1 -- USE pomace olive oil as it's lower saponification factor means more oil for the skin
2 -- DONT USE pomace olive oil as it's lower saponification factor means it will not neutralize all of the lye (sodium hydroxide).
Pomace is way cheaper, but I'm afraid to use.
Can anyone clear this up for me? And IF I CAN use pomace, do I need to use a diff amount than my regular Non-pomace olive oil?
Currently I use 12 oz Lye, 26 oz water, 16 oz each of palm and coconut, 55 oz of Olive. If I have to change the amt of olive oil, can you use the above to tell me what the amount of pomace olive oil is that I should use?
