Fragrances oil with vanilla can turn your soap brown! We test each fragrance and make notes of how it acts in soap. There are also pictures that show the final color of the fragrance after four weeks. If no picture is present, be sure to read the testing notes under the testing notes & info tab on each product listing. Knowing how each oil may act will allow for a much better and more prepared soap making experience! If the fragrance contains vanilla, it will also likely affect your colors, making them muted or brown.
Some fragrances can also accelerate. This means it makes your soap trace faster. We have also noted if a scent accelerates. They can still be used in soap but be prepared to move quickly! To see our fragrance oils that do not accelerate or discolor, look at our Perfect Performance Fragrance Oils.
