geometrical condition of the instrument is diffuse/o-geometry (d/o) or o-
geometry/diffuse (o/d). The light source of the instrument is a D65 light source. The
reading accuracy of the instrument requires one digit after the decimal point. The
stability of the instrument indicates, after start-up and preheating, the reading drift is
no greater than 0.5 every 30min. The accuracy of the instrument shall meet the
requirements of Level-2 or above in the grading standards of the whiteness meter
verification procedure.

compression mold to prepare for measurement.
When the monitoring transparency is abnormal in winter, the soap sample may be
placed to return to room temperature (≥18 °C) for 24h or placed in a 25°C thermostat
for 2h for testing and determination.

Start-up, preheat, and adjust the instrument according to the instruction manual of the
instrument. Determine and record the values of R0 and R∞ of each test soap tablet.
NOTE: If the instrument is equipped with microcomputer or printer, then the values of R0, R∞
and T may be printed directly.

The transparence T (%) of the transparent soap shall be calculated as per the Formula
Appendix B
Determination of Dry Sodium Soap – Simplified Method
B.1 Scope
This method is only applicable to soap-based soaps using fats and oils as raw
materials. It is not applicable to compound soaps added other surfactants or functional
B.2 Principle
The soap is acidified to produce fatty acids. The fatty acids are insoluble in water and
separated from other inorganic additives in the soap. After measuring the mass of fatty
acids and the relative molecular mass of fatty acids, calculate the dry soap content
(content of fatty acid sodium).
The determination results of this method include fats in the soap, average relative
molecular mass, unsaponifiable matters, unsaponifiable fats, and other organics that
are insoluble in water.
B.3 Reagents
B.3.1 95% ethanol (GB/T 679), use alkali to neutralize until the indicator solution of
phenolphthalein is neutral.
B.3.2 Sulfuric acid (GB/T 625), (1+1) aqueous solution.
B.3.3 Methyl orange indicator solution, 1g/L.
B.3.4 Phenolphthalein (GB/T 10729) indicator solution, 10g/L.
B.3.5 Sodium hydroxide (GB/T 629), c(NaOH) = 0.5 mol/L standard titration solution;
prepared according to 4.1 in QB/T 2739-2005.
B.3.6 Beeswax (SB/T 10190).
B.3.7 Semi-refined paraffin (GB/T 254), No.60.
B.3.8 Wax block: Take distilled water, semi-refined paraffin wax (B.3.7), and beeswax
(B.3.6) in an aluminum pot in accordance with a mass ratio of about 10: 4: 1; put them
on an electric furnace to heat; slightly boil. After wax blocks are melted and mixed,
pour them into a porcelain dish to make cakes; cool them; take out the wax blocks and
dry them; divide the blocks to make each block about 7g in size.
x – total fatty acid content, in %;
m0 – mass of the test portion, in g;
m1 – mass of the wax block, in g;
m2 – mass of the mixed wax block, in g;
A – corrected value (generally no greater than 0.5%).
NOTE 1: The heating and decomposition time of soap when placing on the water bath should
not be too long. The test shall be completed within 2h.
NOTE 2: For some soaps added with inorganic substances, about 2g of sodium fluoride may
be added during the test to ensure the strong surface of the mixed wax cake.
NOTE 3: This method is not applicable to soaps containing less than 5% fatty acids.
B.5.2 Determination of average relative molecular mass
Take about 20g of the test portion (5.1) in a 250mL beaker; then add about 200mL of
hot distilled water and dissolve it in a water bath (B.4.8).
After dissolving, add excessive sulfuric acid (B.3.2) to acidify; indicate by methyl
orange indicator solution (B.3.3); stir evenly; take off the beaker from the water bath
after the fatty acid is clarified; cool off; after the fatty acid solidifies, discard the acidic
aqueous solution under the fatty acid.
Add hot distilled water to the beaker containing the fatty acid to dissolve and cool the
fatty acid. After the fatty acid solidifies, discard the acidic aqueous solution under the
fatty acid.
Repeat the above operation until the aqueous solution under the fatty acid is neutral
(yellow) against the methyl orange indicator solution.
Pour the washed fatty acid into a 50mL small beaker containing a filter paper; then put
it in (103±2) °C oven (B.4.7) to filter and dehydrate for about 30min; take it out and let
it cool for a while; weight it before solidifying.
Accurately take about 1g (accurate to 0.001g) of the prepared fatty acid in a 250mL
Erlenmeyer flask; add 70mL of neutral ethanol (B.3.1); heat to dissolve; add 2 drops
of phenolphthalein indicator solution (B.3.4); use sodium hydroxide standard titration
solution (B.3.5) to titrate until the solution is light pink (without fading in 30s); then
record the reading V.
The average relative molecular mass of fatty acids (Y) is expressed in grams per mole
(g/mol) and calculated according to Formula (B.2).
