I used stephenson clear melt and pour soap with green tea and lemongrass fo from new york scent. The fo doesn't contain vanillan so i was surprised when the soap changed drastically . It looks so nice and lemony in the first pic but not anymore.TY

While you don’t “need” stabilizer, I prefer a non deep brown soap and tend to use it in those that turn deep brown. Vanillin is just one of many things that can darken a soap as it oxidizes.  

pro tip: don’t ever sniff the stabilizer.  It is AWFUL and will assault your nose to the point of making your sniffer “off” for a while.
