    I use the water based,which I buy in bulk at about £40/25litres,not too bad,but what’s in it ,smells like a household detergent,which I’m sure can be purchased for peanuts if you knew the alternative product,any ideas anybody?

    Fish oil or vegetable oil a lot used to use.

    anti-spatter should only be there to protect jigs. More chance of getting porosity and other issues with it.

    I successfully made an anti spatter using water (90%), Glycerine (9%) and washing up liquid (1%).

    Yes, plant or animal based. Glycerine is another one of those chemicals when plants and animals can make the precursor more easily than we can synthesise.

    Boots value cough medicine is about the cheapest way to buy glycerol / glycerine in smaller quantities.
