INS

THIS IS A VALUE USED TO DETERMINE THE AMOUNT OF IODINE TO THE SAPONIFICATION (SAP) VALUES OF A SOAP. THE SAP VALUE OF AN OIL INDICATES THE AMOUNT OF LYE REQUIRED TO TURN IT TO GLYCERIN. THEREFORE, THE INS VALUE IS LOOKING AT A CALCULATION OF THE OILS BEING USED + THE AMOUNT OF LYE TO TURN THESE OILS TO GLYCERIN AGAINST THE RATIO OF IODINE IN THE SOAP.
