This Shea butter extracted from the Shea Nuts and it is unrefined and unprocessed in any way. There may be some sediments present (tiny bits of plant fibres, etc) in the butter. Although batches may vary to some extent, this product usually has a strong, pungent, and sometimes smoky aroma which is a characteristic of pure & natural Shea Butter from Ghana. You may also find various natural inconsistencies in color including darker spots and grey streaks. It is solid at room temperature and sometimes it may be hard in consistency.
When adding a butter to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm it until melted or very soft in texture, and can be incorporated into the final product. The melting point can range from 32°C to 35°C. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle in your melted butter until fully incorporated and consistently smooth. For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is one tablespoon per pound (15 ml/500 g). As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab-scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.
Shelf Life: Store in cool temperatures (below 25 °C) away from light and moisture in an air-tight container. The product will become liquid above ambient temperatures (e.g., 36 °C), but will re-solidify upon cooling without affecting functionality. This butter has a shelf-life of one year when stored properly.
