Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Keva! Our Optiphen does have a slight scent to it. Though, in our tests and recipes this scent was unnoticeable in the final product when used at .5-1.5% as seen in the Kissably Soft Lotion Recipe. I will email you personally to disucss this further.
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Elizabeth! While this preservative may have a slight scent to it, we didn't notice any scent in our final products when it was used at .5-1.5% of the recipe, as seen in the Fresh Rain Sugar Scrub video on Soap Queen TV. Also, this preservative is formaldehyde and paraben free, but it is a synthetic product. I'll be emailing you personally to talk more!
