Now Foods Shea Butter 3oz Supplement Facts
Organic Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter (tree nut).
This product is naturally solid and color/texture will vary depending on temperature. This product will melt when warmed above body temperature and become solid again when cool. This is natural and may affect the appearance, but will not harm the quality of the product. If solid, shea butter can be softened by placing in a pan of hot water (e.g. 100º or warmer) for 30 minutes or by microwaving in a separate microwave-safe container.
