Lately, I've been ordering FOs from WSP. I try to get mostly no vanillin, unless I plan on beige, tan or brown soap.
At what percentage does the discoloration start? If it has 1 or 2%, would TD be able to counteract the vanilla?
My new soapy plans should have a white base, and some of the scents I think I have to use have some vanilla in them.
I've read the reviews here and on the WSP site, but a lot of them don't have what I'm looking for?
Thanks for any input!

Right here, silly!
If it helps, one of my favorite FOs from them is their Sugared Spruce FO, which has a vanillin content of 1.5%. I am able to get a stark white color with it in my finished soap when I use 1 tsp. TD ppo. For what it's worth, my usage rate of the Sugared Spruce is .75 oz. ppo (very strong, long-lasting FO).

When I don't use TD, it turns a light tan color.
