Have you ever had a bar of soap that bleached out in the sun or gradually turned dark brown? If you’re doing outdoor craft fairs this year, this is an especially pertinent topic. In this episode, I’ll show you how to use UV Inhibitor and Vanilla Color Stabilizer to prevent this from happening.
Soap Queen TV Episode 7: How to prevent morphing and fading from Soap Queen on Vimeo.
Listed below are the ingredients I used to make the soaps in this video.
For the Peach soap:
4 oz. clear soap base
3 grams UV Inhibitor
For the Vanilla Bean Soap:
4 oz. white soap base
3 ml Vanilla Color Stabilizer
3 ml Vanilla Bean fragrance oil
if I want a clear soap is UV inhibitor will “fog” and make the soap less clear?????
If you add UV inhibitor to a clear soap base, you’ll probably lose about 10% clarity.
VCS is not approved for use in lotions; it is only okay for rinse off products.
So, dooes that mean that vanilla color stabilizer won't work in lotion to keep it from turning brown?
you read my mind this is my exact problem right now!
Your videos are consistently excellent…thank you!
I have yet to find a VCS that works consistently in CP soap. If you find one, let me know =)
You are so funny! Love the outtakes!!
Thanks for this video – it explained so much!!
I have UV Inhibitor but had no idea of ratio as I bought it from a Canadian supplier.
Is there a Vanilla Stabilizer for CP as well out there?
