I picked up some imitation vanilla powder/vanillan at a cake supply store for my baking. Can I use this in bath/body/m&p soap?

I dont think so, it contains alchohol.
But someone else may know better than me.

I'll have to look again when I get home, but I thought it only had three ingredients. Corn syrup, vanillan and something else. Don't think it was alcohol... but I could be wrong.

Yep, I was wrong. I found the ingredients online and it contains Ethyl Vanillin. I'll keep it for my baking.

I thought ethyl/alcohol was drying... and I don't have honey powder (yet!). I did mix it with my milk bath mix, but haven't tried it yet. If it is drying, I'll just toss it and wait till I get the real stuff.

If there is alcohol in your powder, it's going to be such a microscopic amount it won't be drying IMHO.
