YWe strive to create quality, handmade products using a careful selection of butters and oils.
Our Whipped Shea butter uses a combination of Shea Butter and Coconut Oil. Shea butter has a melting point of 95 degrees Fahrenheit and Coconut Oil's melting point is 76 degrees Fahrenheit. Our WHIPPED SHEA BUTTER MELTS EASILY AT 80 degree weather ! Melted butter will appear less in the jar as the air bubbles collapse from the whipped form to a solid.

It is best to store our Whipped Shea Butter products in cooler room temperatures from 68-76 degrees Fahrenheit.
During the spring and summer seasons especially we take general precautions when shipping Whipped Shea Butter. We ship the Whipped and Raw Shea Butter and Shea Sugar scrubs frozen with Dry Ice and use temperature control pouches to maintain the temperature.
We highly recommend ordering our whipped products to be delivered to an address where items will NOT be left in the heat for long periods of time. I.E. a Post Office Box or request your package be held for pickup instead of delivery (contact your local post office)
We CANNOT accept returns and we DO NOT apply refunds for products left outside to melt. WE RECOMMEND ORDERING OUR JOJOBA BODY OILS AS AN ALTERNATIVE IF YOU RESIDE IN A WARMER CLIMATE. Shea butter can still be used in it’s melted state, or rewhipping the product is possible to “fluff” it back up!
This should not at all discourage customers from ordering our super moisturizing butters! 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 (gently stir cream first) or just storing them in a cool, dark place.
We recommend utilizing USPS 2-3 Day Priority Mail to ensure speedy delivery. We encourage all orders containing Whipped Shea Butter based products, Raw Shea Butter, and Shea Scrub to ADD "Confirmation Signature" as it allows you or a member of your household to sign for your package so your package never sits in your mailbox. The current USPS Confirmation Signature online rate is $2.80.
An alternative to adding "Confirmation Signature" is to contact your local post office and request your package to be held for pickup!
After placing your order, please check your emails for your order confirmation as well as tracking information and delivery status. If you decide not to add the Confirmation Signature option to your package, we encourage you NOT to leave any of your Bombd Aesthetics products sitting outside in the heat..
