Flavoring-French Vanilla


French Vanilla Lip Balm Flavoring

Natures Garden  French Vanilla Flavoring Oil (unsweetened)-  The aroma of rich, creamy French vanilla.  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.

I used this to the specified amount and could not smell or taste anything. My husband couldn't either. I would recommend the creme brule flavor instead, it's great.

Reviewer: from Warner Robins, GA US

As I always say, when in doubt, keep it vanilla XD The person I made a lipbalm for with this loved it and keep it with her all the time. I find the flavor very light, but then again this was the first lipbalm flavor I've used and may have did it lightly.
