Do you want to be able to formulate Soap Recipes wherever you are and not go running to your computer every time you need to make a change?
• Create bar or liquid soap recipes
• Change ingredients on the fly
• Calculate in ounces or grams
• Adjust recipe size
• Email your recipes - email them to yourself to make a backup/saved copy just in case something happens to your phone!
• Add a photo to a batch of a recipe
• Notes can be added to any recipe
• Make changes to saved recipes
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.

What's New in Version 2.1.1
Improvements to user actions: fixes to functionality when editing list of recipes and deleting individual recipes. Fixes to iPad functionality when adding and deleting ingredients to recipes. New batches now only allowed when there are one or more oils in a recipe. Batches not allowed to change total yield to zero. Other stabilizing database fixes.
Nice and simple!
I use this app to save and resize recipes. It works great! Wish there was a way to choose whether you want grams or ounces for each recipe rather than going to settings and choosing for the whole app. Also wish the lye concentration percentage was adjustable. (Maybe there is and I just don't know about it). Anyway, I brambleberry should promote their link on the app! They deserve it!
The best soap making app!
I don't mind the blog or the links to the Bramble Berry store at all - it's my choice to click or not to click. I do miss the feature that used to be on this app that would tell you the total ounces of all the oils, water, and lye, etc. I know I can add all this up but it was really nice when it would automatically report it.
Overall a great app!
Works well for for remembering if you did ________ when you made the ________ recipe. Can't wait to see what features will be added to the next version.
