When making lotions, allow butter to soften via room temperature. If heated, rapid cooling will help prevent grittiness.

TIPS: The average melting point for the butter is 90°F. Shea Butter will feel grainy when it is melted and rehardens. To avoid the gritty texture, heat the shea butter to 170-185°F and keep at a steady temperature for 10-15 minutes. Rapidly cool by placing the butter in refrigerator. Butters provide moisturizing properties to products. Test your final product to insure optimal performance.
