Origin: Our Shea Butter is made from the seeds of plants grown in Ghana and has undergone extensive testing to ensure its high quality.
Care Instructions: Not recommended for ingestion
Improper heating of shea butter can cause the butter to crystallize as it cools which can cause lip balms, body butters and other formulations to turn gritty upon sitting. In order to avoid this, shea butter must be melted and heated to about 80 degrees C and kept at that temperature for at least 20 minutes. This will allow the butter to melt completely so that crystals will not form once cooled.
