Vanilla White- Color Stabilizer


Vanilla White Color Stabilizer


Vanilla White Color Stabilizer is a patent pending fragrance technology designed to be added to aqueous bases that have color stability problems resulting from vanillin and other aromatic ingredients which tend to oxidize and cause browning.  For the first time, water based formulas can be stabilized by including a small amount of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Phthalate-Free.


Applications of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer:  Liquid soap bases, bar soap bases, glycerin soap bases, cold process soap, hot process soap, shampoos, conditioners, fabric softeners, detergents, air fresheners, and lotions; essentially any product that is not anhydrous.


Physical Form: Water white liquid with slight haze.


Odor: Vanillic character.  Although this product is completely safe, it has a very strong odor out of the bottle.  You will not notice this odor in finished products.


Recommended use level: Added to the base at 0.3% by weight (this is the recommended usage rate of the manufacturer).  We have found that you may need to use more in your formulations; 2 parts fragrance oil to 1 part vanilla white color stabilizer.  In the event that a fragrance contains very high levels of vanillin, we suggest using a ratio of 1 part fragrance oil to 1 part vanilla white color stabilizer.   It is suggested that you add the vanilla white color stabilizer to the actual fragrance oil, then add that mixture to your formulation. 


Precautions: Store in a dry cool location.  Do not combine with strong acids, nitrates or oxidizing agents.


Natures Garden does not sell the same vanilla stabilizer that is found at other companies.  Vanilla white was formulated by an actual chemist/perfumist, who has a patent pending on this product.  Since Natures Garden has not tested this product in every vanilla-containing fragrance on the market, we do not claim that it will work with all fragrance oils.  Testing will need to be done by the customer with all fragrances they choose. 


Gallons of this product are sold by volume, not weight.  However, a gallon of this product contains approximately 10 pounds.


Not for use in candle making.  Our fragrance oils already contain anti-oxidative agents that prevent discoloration in candle making applications.


Natures Garden is not responsible for the results of any finished products.

Bought me a couple of weeks

Reviewer: A viewer from Springfield, MO US 03/05/14

I'm disappointed and this is too expensive to have it not work. I had lovely off white soap for about 2 weeks, then it all turned dark vanilla brown. Interestingly, when I cut a bar of it after 6 weeks cure, it is white inside.

color disappeared

Reviewer: A viewer from Lance Creek, WY US 11/02/13

I used this color stabilizer only once, but my experience was that it made the colorant I added to the soap disappear. I just used a small amount of soap batter and colored it orange with a lab color (for a swirl), and it looked fine when I first poured it, but the color has completely disappeared now. It did keep the rest of the soap from browning, but I am very disappointed in the color loss and am hesitant to use it again.

Made my hot process soaps stink

Reviewer: A viewer from Philadelphia, PA US 10/14/12

I made a large 100oz batch of hot process soap. I had a problem with my previous batch browning from angels whispering and blackened amethyst fragrance oil blend so I decided to add this to keep my marble cream and green color in my soaps. Well initially they smelled great then later today after letting it sit a lil longer to cut it reek half fragrance and half vanilla white stabilizer which smells awfully offensive and very strong to the point my eyes watered smelling it not knowing how bad it smelled. I don't know what to do. I feel terrible for I sold half my batch and may lose customers to the offensive smell now showing through. Wondering if it has anything to do with the lactic acid I added to get a harder bar or not. I may have to toss the rest of this batch.

Vanilla Stabilizer

Reviewer: A viewer from Golden, CO 07/14/15

I would not give this any stars at all! This vanilla stabilizer made my soap TOO SOFT. I am so disappointed. I will not take a chance of ruining more soap by using it.I wasted 2 lbs of MP plus the money for 16 ounces of the vanilla stabilizer. :(

Worked great

Reviewer: A viewer from Fernley, NV US 06/26/13

first time I used a vanilla stabilizer. Worked better then expected. It is a bit pricey though, bigger jugs or lowering the price a little bit would be desirable.

Made soap very soft

Reviewer: A viewer from Troy, ID US 01/25/14

I used this with the cotton candy fragrance oil at a 1:1 ratio. I had to leave the soap in the mold for 5 days before it was hard enough to cut it. After 2 days, I had to hot process the soap because the bars didn't stand up under their own weight. Not sure if I used too much stablizer or what, but 2 4lb batches made a day apart came out with the same results. Next time I will try to lower the ratio and see if that helps.

Works great

Reviewer: A viewer from MA US 01/07/13

Used with vanilla FO and vanilla sandalwood. Both remained creamy colored instead of discoloring. Great product.

Have not had good results with this

Reviewer: A viewer from Wyoming, MI US 03/02/11

I've used this in 3 soaps made with high vanillan content FO's, each from different companies. All three developed brown speckles almost right away, the cherry vanilla from another company went completely dark, the clementine cupcake from someone else got the speckles and has darkened slightly, and the Caribbean from NG got dark around the edges and dark speckles, but no other noticible darkening. Don't know if it's worth the extra expense.

Very disappointed

Reviewer: A viewer from MI 07/08/15

Used in a 1:1 ratio as directed. Soaps are extremely soft one isn't setting up. Hoping I don't have to throw them both out.

Great Product but need bigger bottles

Reviewer: A viewer from Oxnard, CA US 12/03/12

I have used this product and love it! The only thing I would change is: It needs to be sold in a larger container...1 gallon....or discount on 5's just costing me too much for 16 oz. bottle.
