Comments: My customers are complaining about the spray function not working. I love the durability of the bottle, but the spray is not working. I do not want to look bad on a professional level so I will not be using this product again. I will order the snap cap next time.
FNWL Response: Tricia, I personally use our bottles with white sprayer tops all the time using a 2% maximum ratio of essential oils (this is the ratio that is generally considered safe for the skin), and the sprayers work fine for me. For room sprays, I increase the concentration, but generally don't exceed 4%. I've heard of this situation happening with products that contain a strong concentration of essential oils, especially in water-based formulations that do not include an emulsifier. Thick essential oils may also be a factor. When using too high a concentration of EO, the essential oil rises to the top of the formulation in the bottle and can interfere with the sprayer mechanism.
"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
