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.


Here is Toasted Marshmallow Cold Process Soap.  The dark brown soap contains 0% vanilla white color stabilizer.  The creamy white soap contains equal amounts of toasted marshmallow fragrance oil and vanilla white color stabilizer. Results courtesy of Stephanie Bruns; a long time soap maker.



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. 


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.

4 out of 5 stars Smell 05/28/2014
Reviewer: MWade from Central Islip, NY US
I use this for all my cold process soap, m&p soap and lotions needs. It works great for me in everything. The only thing that gets me is the strong smell of the product. I am just glad I don't smell it in the finished product. Also used in solid sugar scrub (pink sugar) with no problem. I also like that I can used it in different products.
1 out of 5 stars Ugh! 03/08/2014
Reviewer: Michelle Chester from Wichita, KS US
The only reason this has one star is because there isn't a no stars option. It changed the color of my sugar scrub cubes drastically, from a soft orange to yellow and mint green to sky blue. The consistency is off as well it is soft and they have a glycerin like coating. I have bought many other products and have been very happy but this one is a no go!
1 out of 5 stars Bought me a couple of weeks 03/05/2014
Reviewer: A viewer from Springfield, MO US
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.
3 out of 5 stars No luck 02/09/2014
Reviewer: Amanda Rigot from Onaway, MI US
I haven't had any luck with this product yet. Furthermore I haven't been able to figure out the exact formulation for mixing it with scent. Use more stabilizer up to a 1:1 for a high vanillian content. What is considered high? Using 1:1 may completely hide the fragrance. Price is a bit expensive to be running too many tests, so I think better directions from the supplier would be handy.
3 out of 5 stars Made soap very soft 01/25/2014
Reviewer: Gina from Troy, ID US
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.
