Body Balm Product FAQs
Vital Leaf is committed to sourcing the most pure, nutrient-rich ingredients to use in our line. The natural plant butters that make up the base of our Body Balms nourish the skin with high amounts of Vitamin A and E, as well as essential fatty acids that contribute to skin health.
Shea Butter is a special powerhouse ingredient for hydrating and soothing the skin, but it has a tendency to become grainy or uneven in natural skincare formulations. This does not mean that the product has spoiled or gone bad! Shea Butter becomes grainy after it has gone through an increase in temperature and then cooled down too slowly, allowing the formation of tiny grains or crystals of fatty acids to form in the product. The grains will melt when warmed through contact with your skin, but the change in texture might not be as enjoyable.
Fortunately, there’s an easy fix!
1) Fill a pot with a few inches of water and heat to about 150 degrees (about the temperature that tiny bubbles begin to form on the bottom of the pan). Turn off the heat.
2) Ensure that your Body Balm is tightly sealed and place it in the pot of water so that the water reaches just under where the cap meets the jar mouth. (It is important to prevent water from getting into the jar, as that can cause spoilage.)
3) Leave the Body Balm in the pot of water for about 15 minutes, or until the water is lukewarm to the touch.
4) Remove the jar, dry, and place directly into the refrigerator to cool completely. After a few hours, you should be left with a smooth, buttery body balm.
Vital Leaf’s Body Balms are formulated as soft, luxurious, creamy topicals and they will soften or melt if exposed to warm temperatures. This can be especially true during the summer months. If your Body Balm has melted during shipment, it will not impact the overall efficacy of the product itself. Just place the melted Body Balm into the refrigerator to cool and it will return to the original texture in about 4-6 hours.
