  • Removing the smell of unrefined oils

    Posted by lavendercushionz on May 29, 2024 at 4:59 am

    Hello everyone,

    I’m currently making body scrubs for sensitive skin, using unrefined oils. Unfortunately, they do have a distinguished smell that I just cannot ignore.

    I really don’t want to add any fragrance or essential oils.

    Can you guys please recommend any ingredients that could help in covering the smell?

    Thank you in advance.

    Yes, I have faced this issue. My immediate thoughts are:

    (1) Choose unrefined oils that have smells you and your customers can live with. That’s why I did with the products I was manufacturing and exporting globally.

    (2) Any ingredients that could help in covering the smell are going to introduce their new issues. They are probably going to synthetics, which introduces a new set of issues.
