Default my shea butter started to turn white!!!




i have a bunch of pure unrefined shea butter jammed into a jar that i use for mixtures and creams and for my skin....and i looked inside and its starting to look all white (the originial color is yellow)....it smells the same and shea butter is supposed to last like two years....although the spot i was keeping it in was cool, but not dark....

The funny thing is I used to have a jar of shea butter than came white. It was almost like Crisco (is Crisco still a product and is it still white? ). I wish I could find that shea butter again but Sally Beauty stopped selling it. Anyway, I think it's just fine. Perhaps it changed based on where you store it (hot vs cold place). How long have you had it?

It's normal. It's probably the crystalization from verying temperature in where you are storing it.

I just use mine by itself. Stick it in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it up and presto! I love that stuff. It's very heavy, but I'm never giving it up!

You might want to store it in your freezer until you are ready to use it, I had a gang of that stuff and that's where I stored it....
