Danger! Phenonip!

!! Strongy caution !! All ingredients of this product causing danger to the health of its users. Causing skin irritations, hormone imbalances, damage to immune system!!


Yes, this does have an odor. I used this on a thick lotion I make and I have 1 customer that says it smells like "product". I researched a little more and found that using Liquid Germall Plus has no odor. BUT, I did notice my lotion starting to get a little pink/red. I added the extra left-over lotion to a metal tin and in about 1 month or so I saw it getting a little red. Then the fragrance starts to dissipate and the lotion starts to smell like the metal tin. Do you think I need to add more Liquid Germal Plus?

I use Phenonip in my Scent Ole' Lotions, Body Butters, Scrubs, etc... and never have had a problem except, when adding EO's/FO's with vanilla, then after one year the products with a lot of vanilla start to yellow. Phenonip is great.


I am new to lotionmaking so I thought it best to buy a kit to try first. My kit contained Phenonip, and it worked great for me. It was a little thick rather like glycerin. Works great!

Not what I was expecting.....

I recently started making and selling my own bath and body products and realized I needed a preservative for certain items. I make products that are infused with organic tea for slight scents and didn't want bacteria growing.sadly I cannot use my preservative because it overtakes the tea smell of everything I put it in. Its very overpowering and not what I was expecting.

Hi Larissa! I'm sorry this preservative wasn't what you were expecting. We love the Phenonip, though it is a full-strength, full-spectrum preservative and does have a subtle smell. For use in bath and body products that use all oils, you would only need the lowest recommended amount (0.5%), so using a bit less may help cut down on the smell. Customer service has emailed you directly to help troubleshoot. :)
