Our delicate natural body butter, packaged in eco-friendly metal tins are sensitive to temperature changes. It may soften or even melt in transit as they sit in warm courier trucks or mail boxes during shipping. Since melting is a natural reaction to heat and we have no control over the conditions during transit or delivery, please understand that we cannot be responsible for melted products.
What to do when it has melted:
On sunny or warm days it is best to refrigerate BEFORE opening the jars or tins. If you open items, please check if melting has occurred, they may spill out and make a mess!
The melting will not affect the quality of the whipped butter as a great moisturiser, but the whipped consistency will change. It will become more like a body balm and the container may actually look half full.
