"I just used this CP vanilla stabilizer in a basic batch of CP fragranced with peppermint cream FO. I premixed the stabilizer with the FO and let it sit 2 minutes before adding it to my soap batter. The whole batch immediately turned orange and accelerated. Is it normal for the batter to turn bright orange? I went ahead and poured the batter into the mold but it is very orange. Did I do something wrong? Thanks! "

"I used this in my bath truffles & it caused a strange reaction, immediately causing my mix to double in volume and filling my workstation with a very strong chemical smell. There was too much liquid compared to what I normally use so it set off my mix. I'm afraid to try it again after the chemical reaction. Is there a trick to using this in citric/bicarbonate mixes without activating? If I cut down on FO the product won't have as good scent throw. Thank you"

"I used this vanilla stabilizer with the snickerdoodle fragrance because I needed a white layer in my CP soap. I mixed white titanium powder with small amount of oil to the "white" batter. It stabilized for the most part but the white layer looks odd. It's hard to describe. Almost looks as if that layer separated or riced although it didn't look that way when I poured it. Did I do something wrong? Any ideas on how to keep this from happening? Thanks."

"Worked well for me"
COMMENTS:  Mostly when working with fragrances that have a high vanilla/vanillin content, I will just incorporate darker colors into the design. But sometimes you may have a specific design in mind that goes hand in hand with a certain fragrance that just happens to contain vanilla, and for those times, this product has proved to be a real lifesaver. Recently, I used it with fragrances containing 3%-4% vanilla, and the soap turned out great! Nice product.

"Worked like a CHARM!"
COMMENTS:  I did thorough research before choosing this stabilizer. The idea of spending all the time, money, products, patience, skill, etc involved in making a large batch of bright, colorful soap, only to have it turn a dingy shade later, was just a horrible thought! I chose this stabilizer because of its reviews, and everyone was right! My Key Lime Pie soaps are a lovely shade, even with their high vanillin content!

"not sure about this!"
COMMENTS:  I used this with another WSP fragrance yesterday. The stabilizer did not mix with the FO, I could see 2 distinct layers after mixing and allowing to sit for a few minutes. I also have pockets of oozing FO or VS in my soap. Everything went wrong in this soap and I should have known when the 2 did not mix to not use it. My VS is a month old and I used a 1:2 VS to FO ratio. Not sure I'd use again.

"Excellent results"
COMMENTS:  I am back to re-order this AGAIN (about my 3rd or 4th time??). It really works. I've read various comments in soap groups that "vanilla stabilizers are a waste of money and don't work...embrace the brown." Not the case with this one. I don't use many FOs with a lot of vanillin, but especially in fall scents the warm notes are really popular. This product maintains lighter soap colors even after several months (if I even have soap left that long).

"Stinky but works! "
COMMENTS:  Every time I open the cap to weigh this out I forget about those fumes! Definitely wise to use in a well ventilated area, but it works & the odor doesn't transfer to your FO. First use, I was a tad nervous... Used it with a FO containing .80% vanilla & was worried I didn't mix it well enough. I used a ratio of 1 part VCS to 2 parts FO, and even though I stirred well & added slowly, I could still see some oil separation. Nonetheless, I mixed it as well as I possibly could, waited 2 mins before adding to my soap batter and hoped for the best! Well, it worked great! Not only is my soap beautifully fragrant & colorful, but it ISN'T tan or brown, which is exactly what I hoped for! I'm very happy WSP carries this & will absolutely continue to order as needed!

"Works beautifully "
COMMENTS:  I used this with a pumpkin scent that had 11% vanilla. I followed the directions exactly and it worked flawlessly. No discoloration at all and I was able to make a beautiful soap with fall colors and a delicious fall scent. Well worth it!!

"BATH BOMBS"
COMMENTS:  Ive never used a VS before I usually just work my colors around the design knowing it will darken. This time however, I was making a white bomb and needed it to stay that way so I used this as recommended. It was perfect!! Sold out of my bombs. Will definitely be making more...

"I was hesitant to buy this"
COMMENTS:  After a handful of soaps turning brown I broke down and bought it. I am so glad I did. I had quit using anything with vanillin in it ( I had a lot of scents just sitting in the shelf because of it) so I thought I might as well give it a try. What a difference! I haven't had any color morphing since I started using this product. It is definitely a staple in my soaping inventory from now on.

"Works well"
COMMENTS:  I'm new to the product, so far I find it works. It's strong odor when I open it, but it subsides and works. Sometimes not right away. For example, soaps I made 4 days ago were supposed to be blue, but until last night they were green, today they are blue. So again , i am new to this product. The Fragrance still comes through after a few days to a week, depending on the type.

"works very well"
COMMENTS:  my soap did not discolor at all when I added the stabilizer. I used the ratio recommended for the amount of vanillin in the fragrance oil. But if added to early to the fragrance it thickens and separates from the fragrance.

"Not for me!"
COMMENTS:  I bought 2 bottles of this product because I was making a Taiwan swirl design in the of my soaps. After I mixed it with the fragrance oil, I immediately smelled a difference. I was hoping maybe it would change back once it was mixed in the batter or after a full cure. But no, it stayed a candy smell. I made this particular soap for my husband and it smelled like candy now. I was using Almond Biscotti fragrance oil which contained a little vanillin. And then the soap started turning brown within 3 weeks while it was still curing. So, I decided to never use it again. Once was enough. I gave it away to someone who seems to have success in using vanilla stabilizers.

"expiration date is key"
COMMENTS:  I have had varied success with this product, but that was before I noticed I let my 1 pound bottle expire. I recommend buying in small increments to maintain potency. Storing in the fridge may help, haven't tried that yet; it may be more of an issue of evaporation of key ingredients, though, rather than temperature that is causing this product struggling to last even a year in a cabinet.

COMMENTS:  I actually use this in bath bombs that have fragrance with vanilla in it. It prevents color changes and doesn't affect the reaction of the bath bombs. I am very happy with it. Will buy again.

"Always keep this on hand"
COMMENTS:  I keep all 3 of the color stabilizers on hand (CP, MP, Lotion). Sometimes I don't mind if the soap discolors & will just work with that color. But when I want to prevent the discoloration, I always use the Crafters Choice stabilizers. I've yet to have a soap discolor on me when I have used this product. A must have for CP soaps. I do wish it was not so costly. But WSP's price is the same or even lower than many other places.

COMMENTS:  So far so good! The only time I would not use a stabilizer is if I didn't care that my soap turns brown. But this is great for helping to maintain original colors of the soap.

"Worked exactally as I had hoped"
COMMENTS:  I used this according to the label instructions in cold process soaps with scents that I had previously had problems discoloring due to vanilla content. The colors remained true. One bit of advice- this only prevents color change due to vanilla- not any other ingredients. One scent with a high vanilla content mixed with the CP vanilla stabilizer turned a lovely but unexpected shade of butter yellow.

"Used with FO at 13% vanilla"
COMMENTS:  Used at a 1:1 ratio. Results were good. The stabilizer did not eliminate all of the discolor, but did result in a slightly yellow/cream color when used with titanium dioxide. Overall I am happy with the results.
