I recently purchased some more hydrolyzed silk powder and noticed it has a very noticeable stale smelling odor that unfortunately is noticeable in the end product (at least by me). Has anyone else experienced this? I have heard that liquid silk can smell fishy but I've never noticed a strong odor from the powdered form. Just wondering if this is normal or if I got a bad batch. I used it in a lotion that is fragranced and I can definitely smell a musty, stale odor on my skin after applying the lotion.
Thanks in advance for any feedback or advice!
