    I recently used silk peptides in the mint julep cleansing oil for the first time. Wow do those things stink. Trying to figure out if the stink I got is the normal stink or if the peptides are bad. They smelled like rotting potatoes with a touch of mushrooms. Hoped the smell would go away when I put them in my recipe but no. The cleansing oil smelled somewhat like jet fuel. It was so bad that I threw out the whole batch. Please let me know if I should order more or if this is how they smell. I want to make other products with silk peptides but if this is their normal smell forget it.

    Ummm… are you 100% those were silk peptides?

    I find silk has a somewhat sickeningly/cloyingly sweet scent but I only notice that because I am working with it. In lotions and such, I don’t have that issue. And, I’ve had silks be a buttery yellow, white and greenish (currently).

    If your silk is somewhat newish, I would strongly suggest telling your supplier what happened. If your silks aren’t somewhat newish, I’d say buy from another supplier and compare.

    I used the link provided in the recipe so I’m hoping they are. Like I said this is the first time I’ve used them. Package said silk peptides. Ordered them several weeks ago from Amazon. Again used the link in the recipe so was hoping it was a good source, but I am a bit wary of buying these supplies on Amazon.

    I know Marie provides Amazon links and some items from Amazon are decent. But there are some doozies on there!

    I bought mine from New Directions and they’re pale pale tan to white-ish color. And yes, they definitely do stink! I can’t stand the smell either! Even at a 2% level used, I find it hard to completely cover with fragrance oil, although that helps. I still find I can catch a whiff of it though. I can’t even describe the smell like Penny did because to me it just stinks and I don’t willingly subject myself to that smell unless I’m making something. Haha!
