Why are there little white beads or specks in some products?
The whitish beads are concentrated beads of nourishing plant butters which solidify into little butter bits as they cool.
Natural unrefined and unprocessed butters, like our Virgin Shea and Cocoa, will occasionally separate in some products with changes in temperature.
Although we see the little beads most often in the Summer months, changes in temperature as the products make their journey can happen any time of year. The concentrated beads of butter will melt as you massage the product into your skin.
Our goal is to create the best natural, wholesome, nourishing skincare possible, so we formulate our products without synthetic stabilizers, emulsifiers, or waxes. Most companies do not use unrefined or virgin botanical butters because they are so difficult to work with, but we know that unrefined butters are much more nourishing!
