Heat and shea butter
I like shea butter but unfortunately when it gets hot in shipping it seems to get gritty.
I'm a big fan of making my own lotions (it definitely helps that I work here) and you can't beat the price on this for 100% shea butter. Shea butter is quite thick and can harden like coconut oil but warming it with your hands or with your other lotion recipe ingredients will soften it right up.
The NOW Shea butter picture online says
100% pure. After receiving the product the label says 100% Natural shea butter instead of 100% pure. Is this product 100% pure shea butter or does it contain natural ingridents.
This one of the only 100% shea nut butters on the market and the only one with a reasonable price. It's fabulous. To make it more smooth (pure shea nut butter is hard and gritty), warm it to melt and drop just a drop or two of lanolin and mix wel, then let it cool. When it does harden back it will scoop like soft butter and spread on your skin smooth as silk. Add a drop or two of essential oil too if you want a scent. Best stuff for skin ever. No contest.
