This happens when the Skin Conditioning Oil is exposed to prolonged high heat during the shipping process. As a result, the natural oils quickly go rancid. When this happens, some of the fatty acids undergo a transformation and may begin to give off a foul odor.
It it has hard to predict what conditions the shipment will be exposed to on it’s way. Finding ways to reduce shipping time without increasing costs is always a priority.
In any case, the oil should not give off any intense odor. If you run into this issue, please submit an order support request.
