Close-up lenses are in diopters as eye glasses are. Here is an explanation I came across sometime back:
In order to evaluate the impact of a close up lens, you do the following.

with a close up lens attachged, you effectively change the focal length of your prime lens (i.e. you shorten it.

the effective focal length of the combination is

New focal length = (FL_old x FL_close_up) / (FL_old + FL_close_up)

FL_Close_up = 1 / diopter

Maximum Working distance becomes the focal length of the close up lens, since a 1 diopter lens has a focal length of 1000 mm (1 meter) the maximum working distance with a 1 dipoter lens is 1 meter.

so if you consider a 28 mm lens with a +1 diopter close up lens, at 1 meter distance you will have a magnification ration of 28/1000 or 1:40, but the same close up lens on a 100MM lens, at 1 meter gives you 1:10.

If you add a 5 diopter close up, your maximum focus distance with your 28mm lens will be 200mm therefore the magnification ratio will be 28/200 or about 1:7, but on the 100MM lens a +5 diopter at maximum distance will give you 1:2. (this is getting close to the 1:1 you want, and youo now are working at 1 meter. you will have some ability to come inside this distance as a function of how close you rlens focuses.

To get to 1:1 on your 28mm you would need about a 35 diopter close up lens. (they simply don't exist.)

Minimum working distance is lens dependant upon the minimum focusing distance of the lens you have.
