in Formulating

This is a first! In all the formulas I have found I have not seen "specific gravity 1.5" listed next to each of the lyes! I did Google it but didn't find anything that I understood. Does anyone know what this means? Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!

x/4 ~ 47.3/100 = 1.892 (1.9) with 2.1 H2O and

x/20 ~ 49.8/100 = 9.96 (10) with 10.04 (10) H2O

making the formula:

Stearic Acid 50%

Coconut Acids 12%

KOH 10%

NaOH 1.9%

H2O 26.1%

-----------------------

100%

Is this correct? Looks like it to me!The H2O percentage is a little high but it doesn't have glycerin in it and I could add 5%-10% which would put the H2O in the right range also the lyes are in about a 5/1 ratio which is similar to other formulas...

Thanks again!
