We do not restrict ingredients because of color, so some of our oils have natural tint. In addition, we do not use BHT, a common UV stabilizer, in any of our formulations. BHT is a known endocrine disrupter and is currently banned in the EU, Australia, Canada and Japan, but not in the US! As such, some of our oils might darken over time - this is totally normal and natural and will NOT affect the character or performance of the fragrance.
We DO NOT use Lilial in any of our formulations

Behavior Notes: Tested at 3%. Moderate acceleration, you really have to move fast with this one! It was solid within a few minutes, but was able to get it into the mold smoothly by stirring it in at a light trace. Didn’t discolor at all, and has a great scent retention at the rate used.
Tested by Creamy Obsession Soap. The testing recipe consisted of olive oil, coconut oil, lard, sunflower oil, castor oil, shea butter, mango butter, and cocoa butter. A 1.8:1 water to lye ratio was used, as well as a 5% superfat. All tests were conducted at room temperature, with a range of 85°F to 95°F Every small batch was brought to an emulsion, and then the fragrances were stirred in by hand and watched over a period of time while comparing to an unscented control poured from the same batch. After setting up, the bars were then CPOP’ed in their individual silicone molds in the oven at 170°F for 5 minutes to ensure a full gel. Separate popsicle sticks and pipettes were used for each individual fragrance to avoid any cross contamination.
Behavior Notes: "Instant Mashed Potatoes" - got too thick to pour within seconds, but able to smush it into the mold
Scent strength: Strong at 2.0%
