How to Make Soap WhiteHow to Make Soap White

Homemade soap making is the perfect way to show off your creativity. While appearance isn’t everything in a bar of soap, it certainly is important. Sometimes the discoloration of your soap bar just doesn’t match the aroma and there may seem like there is nothing you can do to stop it. Or, you may just be trying to get your soap to be pure white, as no discoloration doesn’t mean that you will get a pure white bar of soap. In fact, uncolored and unscented cold process soap is naturally an off white hue. But, there are a few additives that you could use in certain situations to attempt to achieve the perfect white color for your soap bars. All you need to do is learn how to make soap white and we at Natures Garden would like to help you at as much as we possibly can!

How to Make Soap White Soap Making Options

We have three simple options for our lovely soap-makers that desire a whiter bar of soap. While there is no way to prevent discoloration in all cases, there are some options that you have for your soapmaking. First, we have the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. This is a product that will actually prevent discoloration from fragrance. However, this ingredient is really only good for preventing fragrances with a vanillin content from discoloring. So, this additive will not always work to completely banish discoloration and may not work at all on some fragrances. Next, we have two types of titanium dioxide. While these ingredients are designed to change the appearance of the natural color of soaps. However, these additives will not prevent any fragrance discoloration. This ingredient is simply for turning the off white bars into a pure white hue.

One easy method that you can use to whiten your cold process soaps is to add in our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer! While this ingredient can’t completely whiten all kinds of discoloration, this product can strongly reduce certain types of discoloration. So, it is important to know exactly when to add this product. This ingredient will reduce the discoloration that is caused by vanillin. Also, this product will slow down this ingredient’s ability to oxidize, which would cause browning in the soap. If the fragrance oil contains vanillin or components that will oxidize, then adding this ingredient will absolutely be helpful!

How to Make Soap White Why Use Vanilla White Color Stabilizer

As a soap maker, it is important to know how to deal with discoloration. While many great aromas that don’t cause any discoloration, there are some fragrance oils with wonderful scents that just don’t perform exactly how you want. It can be heartbreaking to discover a gorgeous scent that just discolors too much. What is worse is when the discoloration doesn’t pair well with the aroma. This always happens with scents that have heavy vanilla notes. These fragrance oils often end up extremely dark, but smelling like a pure white vanilla dream! However, you can prevent it with Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. So, don’t give up on your favorite vanilla soap scents just yet.

How to Make Soap White Vanilla Fragrance OilsHow to Make Soap White Vanilla Fragrance Oils

While there are definitely some types of discoloration that Vanilla White Color Stabilizer can’t help with, this product is perfect for reducing discoloration from vanillin. This ingredient is what creates the vanilla aroma that we all know and love! This means that this color stabilizing agent is perfect for vanilla fragrances, and any fragrance that has a vanillin content. So, darker shades of soaps that are caused by vanilla fragrance oils can be tackled by this product. Although it is possible for a fragrance oil to have other discoloring agents, the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer is great for whitening discoloration due to vanillin. So, you should add this ingredient when the vanillin content is above 1% to prevent discoloration.

How to Make Soap White Oxidation Impact on ColorHow to Make Soap White Oxidation Impact on Color

Over time, certain ingredients in the fragrance oil may begin to oxidize. While this is just a natural reaction some ingredients, like vanillin, have with the air, this could lead to a change in the color of your homemade soaps. Oxidation has the potential to cause a darker color for your soap, so you could potentially have discoloration after the soap has been created. Although Vanilla White Color Stabilizer can’t completely prevent this reaction from occurring, it is perfect if you would like to slow down this natural process. Thus, you can delay this discoloration and, if you use your bars quick enough, may never even have to see it!

How to Make Soap White Impact on ScentHow to Make Soap White Impact on Scent

Since you are attempting to save this fragrance oil for your soap making, you don’t want anything impacting the scent. Luckily, vanilla white color stabilizer can reduce discoloration without negatively impacting the fragrance oil that you enjoy. Although the aroma of this product is strong out of the bottle, the scent is completely unnoticeable in the finished soaps. So, you won’t smell a thing in your soaps! This means you can have the appearance in your soap that you want without sacrificing the integrity of this fragrance oil’s scent.

Now, you know exactly how Vanilla White Color Stabilizer will work in your soap! All you have left to do is to learn how you can incorporate the color stabilizer into your soap making. While it is not super difficult, you need to know what you are doing to make sure that the ingredient is actually incorporated. So, make sure to add this ingredient to aqueous bases as it is designed to stabilize water based formulas. This is because the vanilla white stabilizer can’t be added to the oils until the saponification process.

If you’d like to see exactly how this whitener product works, then check out our amazing Peppermint Fluff Soap Recipe! This is a quality soap recipe that required the base of the soap bar to be pure white hue. Otherwise, the design on our soap wouldn’t look like a peppermint! So, the soap had to be red and pure white. However, this soap uses a fragrance with a vanillin content. In fact, the Peppermint Fluff Fragrance Oil includes a 6% vanillin content. So, we needed something to help with the inevitable discoloration. Otherwise, we would have ended up with a brown and red bar of soap that really wouldn’t look like a peppermint at all. Instead, we used this ingredient and created the soap you see to the left!

How to Make Soap White Titanium Dioxide Water SolubleHow to Make Soap White Titanium Dioxide Water Soluble

Also, you have another perfect option for making homemade white soaps. You can use Titanium Dioxide to create a whiter bar of cp soap. While this ingredient won’t reduce discoloration that is caused by some fragrance oils, it is perfect for whitening. If you have a bar with light or no discoloration, then you can add this powdered colorant to create a whiter bar. Instead of the typical off white soap color, the Titanium Dioxide will create a more pure white color in your bars. Thus, you can have decorative soaps with a pure white hue. Also, you will be able to still use your personal cold process soaping recipe.

How to Make Soap White Amount to AddHow to Make Soap White Amount to Add

First, it is very important for you to know how much titanium dioxide that you can add to your homemade soaps. While this whitening powder is perfect for soap making, you don’t want to add too much of this product to your soap. However, not adding enough of this product could leave you with a bar that isn’t as white as you would like your soaps to be. So, we would suggest for you to include no more than a single teaspoon per pound of soap colored. All you need to do is add the right amount of this whitening product to your soaps!

How to Make Soap White Using the Water Soluble Titanium DioxideHow to Make Soap White Using the Water Soluble Titanium Dioxide

Next, you need to learn how this ingredient needs to be used. Since this ingredient is water based, it needs to be added to the lye water solution. This means that you will have to add this white pigment to your whole soap bar. So, the water soluble version of Titanium Dioxide is perfect for coloring an entire bar of cold process soap. Then, you can combine your water and oils perfectly to create a whiter bar of soap. Although you can separate some of this white soap to color with soap dyes, the titanium dioxide won’t impact the color.

How to Make Soap White Titanium Dioxide Oil DispersibleHow to Make Soap White Titanium Dioxide Oil Dispersible

Alternatively, you can use a different type of Titanium Dioxide to create your soaps. This ingredient is perfect for whitening smaller portions of your cold process soap. This version of Titanium Dioxide will perform similarly to the water soluble version. Thus, both act as a whitening pigment for the uncolored portions of the soap. Again, this ingredient won’t fix any discoloration caused by fragrance oils. This is because this additive is designed to alter the color of natural soaps to a more pure white. The only difference between the Oil Dispersible Titanium Dioxide and the Water Soluble Titanium Dioxide is how it is incorporated into the soap.

How to Make Soap White Using the Oil Dispersible Titanium DioxideHow to Make Soap White Using the Oil Dispersible Titanium Dioxide

Now, all you need is to learn how to use this product in your soap making process! Since this ingredient is oil based, you need to add titanium dioxide to the oil portion of your soaps. So, you’ll need to take a bit of your cosmetic oils and mix your powdered pigment together. Then, you will need to mix up your soap batch. Afterwards, separate out the portion of soap that you’d like to be whitened. Then, mix together the separated portion and the titanium dioxide to create the perfect white color for your soap design.

Finally, take a peek at how we like to use titanium dioxide in our very own soap making recipes. The Sweet Orange Chili Pepper Cold Process Soap Recipe is one example where adding this ingredient is perfect for creating perfect designs. This soap recipe incorporates a perfect in-the-pot swirl with vibrant red, pure white, and gorgeous orange colors. Note that the white portion of this swirl is even whiter than the normal hue of cold process soap. Luckily, this fragrance oil causes no discoloration in homemade soap! This means that adding titanium dioxide is a perfect option for creating a pure white section in your soap.

Beverly Hills Glam FragranceBeverly Hills Glam Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Beverly Hills Glam Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden definitely brings the glam of Beverly Hills to you!  But, what makes Beverly Hills so glamorous with such humble beginnings?  In 1900, Burton Green, Oilman and real estate, along with several other partners, purchased the land for the Amalgamated Oil Company.  In 1906, after drilling many unsuccessful wells, they decided to revamp as Rodeo Land and Water Company.  The land was renamed  Beverly Hills by Green and his wife after Beverly Farms, Massachusetts.  Green reached out to the landscape architect Wilbur D. Cook who had been influenced by landscape designer, Frederick Law Olmstead who is known for creating the wide curving streets that hugged the vast hills.  Rodeo, Canon, Crescent, Carmelita, Elevado and Lomitas which were constructed in 1907 were the City’s first streets.  Cook was also the creator of what would later be known as the emerald necklace of his garden city, which included a three-block greensward called Santa Monica Park.  Five years later in 1912, the Beverly Hills Hotel was constructed.  The hotel became the center of community life, serving as theater, meeting place and church.  In 1914, the City was incorporated and hence, Beverly Hills was born.  The rich, elegant lifestyle that it created attracted stars such as Douglas Fairbanks and his wife, Mary Pickford who led the wave of movie stars here when they built their mansion, Pickfair, in 1919.  Other stars include Gloria SwansonWill Rogers, Charlie Chaplin, John Barrymore, Buster Keaton and Rudolph Valentino, just to name a few, who also built stylish mansions.

Black Linen and Amber Fragrance OilBlack Linen and Amber Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Black Linen and Amber Fragrance Oil is not only a Natures Garden original fragrance, but it is also A Best Seller!  Truth be told this fragrance has me intrigued.  The words “black linen” alone sort of make me blush!  As a quilter, I mainly stick to cotton and flannel fabrics.  With a little research, I discovered that linen is very labor-intensive to manufacture.  It’s fibers are very absorbent and garments made of linen are appreciated for their extraordinary coolness and freshness in hot weather.  A wide variety of products are made with linen such as aprons, napkins, towels, table clothes, runners, chair covers, bed linen, and men’s and women’s wear.  “Linens” also refers to lightweight undergarments such as chemises, shirts, and lingerie – note that the root word, linen!  Most of us associate the color black with formality, death, and maybe even evil.  But, what if we flipped the coin and looked at the color black for the other things that it has been known to represent such as strength, power, authority and the unknown; we can add excitement to our lives.  Let’s face it, there’s a hidden mystery to the color black.  Black linen combined with amber has limitless possibilities for creating the desired ambiance; embrace the unknown!

What Does Black Linen and Amber Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a very unique, very sexy scent!  Black linen and amber is a unisex (meaning it is designed to be suitable to both sexes) fragrance that begins with top notes of fresh cotton and crisp ozonic (aquatic scent) notes; followed by middle notes of white blossoms;  well rounded with base notes of cashmere, amber, musk, and patchouli.
