I made emulsified whipped body butter. I usually add fragrance oil and after one day I have this weird smell in my body butter. It does not smell rotten but it smells like chemicals and nothing like the fragrance oil. What can I do to fix this ?
A refined and deodorized Shea Butter should have no smell to it at all...it's the purpose behind paying more for it. If it has a smell, you may want to check that you are purchasing what you think you are purchasing and not a 'natural' Shea Butter. Then there is your Mango Butter...I've only purchased the 'natural', but there is also a refined/deodorized version too.I used shea butter, mango butter, jojoba oil, propanediol 1,3, Fragrance oil, vitamin e, emulsifying wax, water....
The body butter smells so much like shea even if I used the refined one. Its been weeks and nothing
I have tried it with a different FO but the smell mixes with the smells of refined shea
I asked but didn't get a response, so I'm guessing not?This is basically a lotion -- Fats + water + emulsifier = lotion.
I don't see a preservative listed in the OPs ingredients. I hope the OP just forgot to mention it, but if there really is no preservative, one other possibility for the odor is microbial growth.
