What's in The Shea Butter Balm?

There's zero cyclohexasiloxane, alcohols, caustic soda and we don't add water.

When to use it?

Storage

Shea Butter melts at around 30°c. That's a great thing because it basically melts at your body temperature, as you rub it in. In warmer weather, it's probably best not to leave tins in your car or in direct sunlight as our all natural product can melt. If it does, leave it in a cool spot to solidify. The molecular structure of The Shea Butter Balm will not change - still soothing, still moisturising. In cold weather, you'll find the product can be harder to the touch - just rub it in! You can squeeze it between your fingertips to soften it prior to application if you wish.

Disclaimers

There have to be some! The Shea Butter Balm is for topical use only. In the extremely unlikely event of irritation, discontinue use and seek medical advice. (also, contact us at contact@thesheacompany.com.au please).

We recommend you use the product within 12 months of opening the tin.
