Find out how much of this scent to use
Vanilla Color Stabilizer: For melt and pour soap only, this product will keep your soap a nice white or ivory color. Use it with any brown coloring fragrance and you will be thrilled by the results! For best results use at a 1:1 ratio (this means equal parts Vanilla Color Stabilizer to Fragrance Oil). This additive keeps the soap from browning while allowing the original scent (whatever you're trying to use - Vanilla, Chocolate, Butterscotch etc...) to shine through.
As of 2012, this additive should no longer have a strong smell out of the bottle and still works just as well as before.
NOTE: This product works marginally well in CP soap for 4 to 9 months before the fragrance eventually goes brown and is not intended for use with lotions or other toiletry products.
This fragrance is phthalate free.

I don't understand why it states in the description for melt and pour only?? I use this in my hot process soap, cold process soap, and my bubble bath bars, and bath fizzies so I can use vanilla based fragrance oils and it works beautifully! I tried not using it and all turned brown...have to have this on hand at all times. and the fact that it's odorless is a huge BONUS!! Brambleberry this makes me very happy :)
Is there a chemical reason I shouldn't use this in CP? I bought this a long time ago but recently used it in a couple of different CP batches. Colorwise, it does what it is billed to do. Stop discoloration. The soap is a bit "softer" when I add this ingredient but not really worthy of mention. Is there a chemical reason that I shouldn't use Vanilla Stabilizer in CP?
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Wendy! We do not recommend using the Vanilla Color Stabilizer in cold process soap because it does not work well in CP. It will work marginally well for 4 to 9 months but will eventually fully discolor.
I absolutely love this Vanilla Stabilizer...id just like to know...does it need to be refrigerated? Or is a cool dark room (my studio) a good spot? Thanks so much :)
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Elise! I'm so glad you love our Vanilla Color Stabilizer! This product does not need to be refrigerated but storing in a cool, dark place is recommended.
This really does work to keep white soap white. I would definitely recommend it to others.
I had an order for a French Vanilla and pure Vanilla rose soaps (no coloring, goats milk). I hadn't heard about Vanilla Stabilizer yet. I made the soaps, OMG I panicked. I didn't know what to do. I called a baker friend of mine and she said to try Clear Vanilla Food Extract. I was desparate and ran to the store, got the bottle ($12). Made the soap, it lost most of its fragrance. I called a soaper I meant at a farmers stand. She said, come over and get my Vanilla Stabilizer and start over. I ran to her house. This stuff is amazing! The French Vanilla turned creamy (like the French Vanilla ice cream), the Vanilla stayed white, relief! I will keep this in stock. I was recently told my Gardenia fragrance oil turned brown over time. I will try this in that to see if it stays white (finger's crossed). Use as suggested, 1:1 ratio of fragrance/stablizer.
