Heat Caution, Summer Care and Shelf Life
Kyra's Shea Medleys uses a variety of butters and oils, especially shea butter and coconut oil, to make our organic products. Shea butter and coconut oil are two of our ten fundamental ingredients that are more prone to melting during the hotter seasons of the year. Shea butter melts at 95 degrees Fahrenheit and coconut oil at 76 degrees Fahrenheit. It is best to store our products in cooler room temperatures from 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit.
During the spring and summer seasons especially, we highly recommend ordering our whipped products to be delivered to an address where items will NOT sit in the heat for long periods of time. We do CANNOT accept returns and we DO NOT apply refunds for products left outside to melt.
However, you should not be discouraged. A great characteristic of natural butters and oils are that they retain their qualities in both liquid and solid forms. They can easily be transformed back to a more solid form by refrigeration (may gently stir first) or just storing them in a cool, dark place.
