When making lotions, allow butter to soften via room temperature. If heated, rapid cooling will help prevent grittiness.


DIRECTIONS: Slowly stir melted product into the oil portion of your formulation.  Common use levels are lip products 5-100%, cold process soap 3-6%, lotions and creams 3-5%.  Can be applied directly to the skin.

TIPS: The average melting point for the butter is 90°F.  Shea Butter will feel grainy when it is melted and rehardens.  To avoid the gritty texture, heat the shea butter to 170-185°F and keep at a steady temperature for 10-15 minutes. Rapidly cool by placing the butter in refrigerator. Butters provide moisturizing properties to products. Test your final product to insure optimal performance.

STORAGE: Store in an airtight, cool, dark location.  When stored properly, best used within 1 year from date of purchase.   

CAUTION: For external use only. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
