|Vanilla stabilizers….. do they work?
The answer is yes, sort of. Vanilla stabilizers do not fully stop all browning of a soap. While they make slow the progression (long enough for your customer to take home the soap) they will not stop all browning. Check out this soap.
This soap was made on March 19th. I will show you the progression on this soap for then next several weeks. Is a vanilla stabilizer perfect? Not at all! Will it prevent browning? Nope. It will just slow the browning. Is it worth the extra money? In our opinion – no.
Browning of a soap isn’t bad. The scent is richer and more rounded than a scent that doesn’t turn brown. Is the browning desirable in all products? Not at all. But we feel it is best to choose a fragrance based on how it reacts with the product in the first few days, and long term. We don’t expect Sweet Almond Oil to be the “everything” oil. We blend to get the best from all the oils available. The same should hold true for scenting.
So, now you know why you won’t find one of these so called “stabilizers” in the MMS product catalog. If it worked without any browning, we would consider it. But, this isn’t good enough in our opinion.
