Separates and tastes bitter

I made several batches yesterday and added this product at the recommended 1-3% when combined with another Flavor Oil. Unfortunatley, it had separeted and left a pool of oil on many of the balm. I had tossed them now, as I was not sure if they were safe to still use. It is not an easy product to handle. Furthermore, I would like to know what the INCI for this is. Flavor Oil? Aroma?

The Lip Smacking Sweet Flavor Oil should not separate though it can help to suspend it in your lip balm at cooler temperatures so it does not settle out of the balm. You would list it on your label as just flavor or flavoring oil.

crystallization and separation

I purchased two bottles of this product. After each use, the flavor oil crystallizes and separates after a couple of days. I tried different temperatures and amounts. I still got the same reaction. I contacted the company for product ingredients to see what may be causing the crystallization and I was told that since the product is considered a fragrance, they do not have an ingredient list for this product. I stopped using the lip smacking product and my lip balm and lip gloss no longer crystallizes. The lip smacking oil may not be completely oil soluble.

The Lip Smacking Sweet Flavor Oil is a lip safe fragrance so it does fall under those Trade Secret Laws making its ingredients proprietary. If you're looking for a more natural sweetener many people use Stevia.

LOVE - Added great flavor

I love making lip balms for personal use as well as to sell in my shop and I recently purchased and added this to my balms. It added a wonderful flavor of just the right amount of sweetness to my chocolate mint flavored balms. Everyone who has bought these balms from me with the sweet lip flavor loves the taste! Thanks BB!!

Changed my mind...

UPDATE: Regarding previous negative review: I think what I was detecting was the Vanilla Flavor Oil (from BB) which I apparently hate (instead of this). So... fast forward, I am finding the Stevia I usually use is crystalizing out of my chapstick after a few months. I decided to give this stuff another chance (& since I purchased so much of it) and I actually really like it! I think this is going to be my go to sweetener from now on. Changed to 5 stars. OLD REVIEW: I think this stuff smells/tastes horrible. I rarely leave negative reviews but to me this sweetener smells/tastes... perfume-y. It is totally unusable to me. I am going to stick with Stevia for sweetening my lip balms.

Hi Michelle! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this flavor. We love the Lip Smacking Sweet Flavor Oil and find it perfect for adding a hint of sweetness to our balms. It sounds like the Stevia, White (bleached) would work better for you! While the Stevia is plant based, the flavor oils are synthetic fragrance oils that are lip safe so they would definitely taste different on the lips. Find out more about our flavor oils in this Sunday Night Spotlight on them.

CP soap

This doesn't make my soap taste very sweet at the recommended percentage. How much per pound to get my soap to taste better?
