eBotaniq™ Vanilla Colour Stabiliser [VCS] is formulated to prevent lye based soap formulations, containing Vanilla [vanillin] from turning brown. It will not prevent colour changes due to ingredients other than vanilla/vanillin.
Whilst Vanilla discolouration can be a surprise to new [and old] soapers, if you do not want the soap turning various shades of brown over a short time, use our Vanilla Colour Stabiliser. This VCS will help to reduce those fragrance oils containing vanilla (vanillin) from turning Melt and Pour , Cold Process (CP), Hot Process (HP) Soap Base going various shades of brown.
We suggest that you read the notes on each fragrance to check if it actually contains Vanilla and in what quantity (if at all possible). It may not say it specifically contains vanilla, but our expercience has shown that most food fragrances do.
It is recomended that the Vanilla Colour Stabiliser is added to either a glass or plastic mixing container, add 1 part stabiliser to 2 parts fragrance. For fragrances with over 10% vanilla, use 1:1 ratio. Ensure that the fragrance and eBotaniq™ Vanilla Colour Stabiliser are mixed well and allow the mix to sit at rest for 2 minutes before dosing into the soap. Do not store the mixed products, make up as needed just before the fragrance addition.
