Whipped Body Butter
Blends of cocoa, shea and mango butters, almond, coconut and olive oils. Whipped up to lock in extra moisture to your skin
We're dedicated to keeping our products 100% natural and free of harmful synthetic chemicals. We do not use synthetic stabilizers and we do not formulate our light and fluffy body butters with any beeswax.
As a result, our delicate natural products packaged in plastic jars are sensitive to temperature changes.
During very warm weather, products may soften or even melt in transit as they sit in warm mail trucks and mailboxes.
Unfortunately, melting is a natural reaction to heat and we have no control over the conditions during transit or delivery.
In an effort to be as transparent about our ingredients and methods as well as to educate and better equip you, our wonderful customers, below are some tips and tricks to keep your Shea Butter whipped to perfection!
Whipped Butters: Place it in the refrigerator. The melting will not affect the quality of the whipped butter as a great moisturiser, but the whipped consistency will change. It will become more like a body balm.
Whipping adds tiny air bubbles (just like whipping cream) that increase the size, lightens the density and changes the texture, making the butter light and fluffy. If a whipped product melts, the air bubbles are collapsed, so the volume is decreased. So although the jar was filled to the top, if the butter melts, there will be less volume in the container. The container may actually look half full.
We have had customers scoop out the butter and whip it back up with an electric whisk beater. The butter has to be very cold for this to work.
Sugar Scrubs: Place in the refrigerator. As it begins to harden up--give it a stir and place it back in the refrigerator until firm. Again because it is a whipped product, the container will have less volume as the whipped butter melts.
