Vanilla Oleoresin 10 fold has a quintessential vanilla scent that is a 100% pure and natural. It has a dark brown hue and fluid liquid viscosity. It is wonderful to use alone or incorporate into beauty products. Extracted from the Vanilla planifolia species.
Native to Central America and Mexico, Vanilla is a perennial climbing vine that can grow up to 25 meters (82 feet) tall. When cultivated its deep trumpet-shaped flowers must be hand-pollinated; in nature, hummingbirds do the work. The green capsules or fruit are picked, and the immature vanilla pod or bean is fermented and dried to turn it into a fragrant brown vanilla bean. Our oleoresin is the superior bourbon variety; that it is 10 fold relates to its concentration. One of the most popular flavors in the world, it is used in cuisine, cosmetics, and perfumery. However, the constituent vanillin makes it difficult to use in soapmaking and candles. Because of reduced availability due to regional conflicts, the price of Vanilla oleoresin has risen to the point of most absolutes. Nonetheless, the true oleoresin is recognized as being well worth the price.
Note: Vanilla 10 Fold is immiscible in water and oil; soluble in ethanol only, it will leave a sediment. This product contains vanillin, an organic aldehyde which will affect the color in soaps and body-care products. Not suitable for candle use. Avoid very high concentrations in skin-care products.
