Optiphen Vs Optiphen ND
Out of optiphen and optiphen ND, which is better for Lotions, and which is better for scrubs?

Reply from Bramble Berry
Hi Adonech! The Optiphen and Optiphen ND both are great for lotions and scrubs. Which one you use is dependent on if your product is water based or oil based. The Optiphen ND is meant to be used in water-based products, while the Optiphen is meant for oil-based products. I will email you personally to discuss this further!
