Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Adriana! I'm so sorry you had this experience with the Optiphen ND. I went out to the warehouse to smell it because I wanted to know exactly what you were talking about. While there is a slight scent it was not overpowering and did not smell what I would imagine acid to smell like. The scent was faint and would easily be able to be masked by your fragrance. I will email you personally to resolve this issue.
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!
