C12-C13 Alkyl Lactate … always a chemical scent?
Playing with a new ingredient….and applied C12-C13 Alkyl Lactate neat to my skin. Noticed it had a chemically scent…not overwhelming…but certainly couldn’t overlook it. In fact….24 hours later, the chemical scent was still recognizable on that tested area of skin (underarm).
I got this sample from the Thai place, so I do not know the source (mfg) company. But my question is…will all suppliers of C12-C13 Alkyl Lactate likely have this chemical smell….or did I just end up with a sample from the one company…that has odor?
I tossed it into a scented formula….and don’t believe it is detectable…but used a stronger fragrance type…and am wondering…if it would bleed through….with more subtle fragrances.
