My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

I've wondered for a long time about something.

Ivory Soap is 99.44% pure.

So what is the other 0.56% made of?

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

Well, off the top of my head*...

Ivory Soap is:
12.8% Lauric Acid,
7.5% Myristic Acid,
0.6% Myristoleic Acid,
21.8% Palmitic Acid,
3.7% Palmitoleic Acid,
13.6% Stearic Acid,
31.6% Oleic Acid,
3.1% Linoleic Acid, and
5.2% Other (including C6-C10).

All these acids are as their sodium salts. The numbers are probably plus or minus 3% and vary with the species of animal rendered for tallow, and the time of year that either the tallow, or coconut oil was obtained. The mixture is optimized for cleaning. The coconut oil (cocoate) has C12-C14 sodium salts that give a good lather, but are not very good for cleaning. The tallowate is not good for lather, but is very good for soil removal. The acids are shown in their cis form. There can be some isomerization to trans, during processing. The ivory soap bar may also contain some glycerin, sodium chloride, and water.


* Off the top of my head = I searched the web, obviously

It's one part in 200, so I wouldn't sweat it. It could be cockroach gonads and it probably wouldn't make a difference.
