My shea butter melted! What do I do?
Remember that shea butter has a high melting point. When kept at room temperature, the butter will melt on skin contact. So, if it is kept in a room that is too warm, it will melt. During the summer months, try to keep your shea as cool as possible. If your shea melts, it's not a bad thing, just let it refirm and it's good to go!
Is your shea butter certified organic?
We import tens of thousands of gourds directly from West Africa. It is brought here on a container and takes its time through US Customs. Sampling each one of these gourds of shea would have an astronomical cost and each one is made differently. Certifying shea butter is only keeping this product to American standards of certification. This shea butter is 100% pure and organic and we stand behind it. If you deal with shea, you will know that the colors will vary even if you only request off-white. No two gourds are alike, other companies boast about their shea, but they usually have melted or done something to it to provide consistent shea. Yellow shea butter is the only consistent shea because it is sometimes machine pressed, which will produce a yellow color. We can only promise you that you are receiving 100% pure raw shea, and our customers will agree!
