Flavoring-Tropical Paradise


Natures Garden Tropical Paradise Flavoring Oil (unsweetened)-  The aroma of exotic tropical fruits including coconut, pineapple, goji berries, dragon fruit, star fruit, papaya, mango, and kumquat.  For use in lip balms, massage oils, body sprays, perfumes, bath/body products, and pet bath products.  Phthalate Free. None of our flavorings contain any gluten, formaldehyde, or formaldehyde releasing agents.

Flavoring oils are different from fragrance oils. 

Flavoring oils are regulated by the FDA because they are designed to be used for consumption or for cosmetic products that may be ingested. The ingredients contained in flavorings are considered GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA.   Flavorings developed for lip balms smell, but do not taste.  It is only when sweetener is added to the flavoring that you can taste the flavoring.  Since lip balm, lip gloss, and  lipstick are worn on the lips, flavorings are used to scent them. Our flavoring oils are created using distilled, fractionated coconut oil as their solvent. Some of the ingredients in our flavorings are natural, while other ingredients are not considered natural.  Flavorings typically do not have as strong of a scent throw as fragrances do.  Therefore, it is not advisable to use flavorings in candles, porpourri, or smelly jellies. Some people choose to use flavoring oils in their pet bath products as opposed to fragrance oils because flavoring oils are considered safe for consumption.

Fragrances are regulated by IFRA (International Fragrance Association), and typically are not safe to use in applications that are worn on your lips.  However, if a fragrance oil is listed as safe to be used on the lips under category #1 of the IFRA Compliance sheet for that particular fragrance, it can be used in lip applications. Fragrances are made using solvents which allow for better scent throw than flavorings.  Therefore, we suggest using fragrances, as opposed to flavorings, in candles, smelly jellies, potpourri, soap, and most other bath products.

If you require that your product is sweetened, add powdered stevia extract with maltodextrin.  Stevia powdered extract with maltodextrin is an all-natural sweetener that mixes nicely with lip balm base without producing the excessive gritty feeling that most sweeteners produce. Stevia is approximately 10-15 times sweeter than sugar, and a little bit of this product goes a long way. You will notice that maltodextrin is added to the stevia powdered extract.  Maltodextrin is an all-natural carbohydrate obtained from grain products, and it gives the stevia better flow/dispersion in lip balm bases; reducing the gritty feel.

Suggested usage of flavoring oil in lip balms range from .4-4% in the finished product.

Not my fave

Reviewer: A viewer from Henderson, NV US 05/08/14

I have loved almost every other flavor oil I have gotten from NG - but this one is just not my thing. Just was not fond of the flavor at all.

I made a lip scrub with this flavor for a friend, and she used it on her hands. She described it as the best coconut scent she has ever tried. Very tropical and really fresh and sweet!

Lovely mix

Reviewer: A viewer from Warner Robins, GA US 10/23/10

The flavor on this one is really good. Almost hard to believe all those tropical fruit flavors are packed into this one bit. I made a lipbalm with just this flavor and another with a bit of wintergreen and peppermint added. Both folks I made it for loved it.
