Vanilla In Products

Jul 6th 2017

Vanilla. How we love thee. How beautiful of a plant you are and truly rare indeed. Those of you whom are not artisans of bath and body products may not know the following:

Vanilla [which is in so many fragrances-even ones you wouldn't think it would be in to round it out] tends to discolor bath products to a brown. Now, this can happen almost immediately, hours or even weeks later. Some companies like to use vanilla stabilizer to try and counteract the inevitable: discoloration. Here at C'est Beau we do not. We don't add any chemical stabilizers to try and overrule chemistry. If there is vanilla in our product we will mention it in our product listing. Along with a tiny disclaimer about discoloration since we wager not everyone will read this. It does not affect efficacy of our products just mainly a purely aesthetic anomaly. 

Vanilla is scrumptious. It is warm and luxurious. If you see brown spots or a brown bar of soap...bet your buns it has vanilla in it. Knowledge is power. We hope that this insight has helped you learn something new. Please never hesitate to contact us with any inquiries!
