Summer Heat and Shipping J House Of Beauty Whipped Body Butter
Keeping Our Whipped Body Butter to perfection At J House Of Beauty we're dedicated to keeping our products 100% natural and free of harmful synthetic chemicals. We do not formulate our light and fluffy body butter with any beeswax. As a result, our delicate natural products packaged in amber jars are sensitive to temperature changes. During very warm weather, products may soften or even melt in transit as they sit in warm mail trucks and mailboxes. We use more protective packaging in the heat of summer, so most products make their journey safely. Unfortunately, melting is a natural reaction to heat and we have no control over the conditions during transit or delivery. WHY DOES THE MELTING PROBLEM EXIST? One of our biggest challenges as we formulate our natural skin care products is controlling the effect of outside temperature. Many commercial products contain phthalates to stabilize and maintain viscosity (thickness), cocamide DEA, MEA to thicken, stabilize and emulsify, petroleum based oils and waxes to thicken and stabilize and other additives to insure that their products maintain the same consistency through all temperature variations. Our natural organic products do not contain these or any other synthetic additives. Our oil, whipped butters and scrubs high in natural oils and butters, are formulated to be a semi-soft solid at room temperature. When applied to warm skin, they instantly melt, providing an emollient, nourishing and penetrating product. WHAT TO DO ABOUT MELTING On sunny or warm days it is best to refrigerate BEFORE opening the jars. If you open items, to check if melting has occurred, they may spill out and make a mess! **The quality and healing properties of our products are not affected by melting.** Whipped Butters: Place it in the refrigerator. The melting will not affect the quality of the whipped butter as a great moisturizer, but the whipped consistency will change. It will become more like a body balm. Whipping adds tiny air bubbles (just like whipping cream) that increase the size, lightens the density and changes the texture, making the butter light and fluffy. If a whipped product melts, the air bubbles are collapsed, so the volume is decreased. so although the jar was filled to the top,if the butter melts, there will be less volume in the container. Sugar Scrubs: Place in the refrigerator. As it begins to harden up give it a stir and place it back in the refrigerator until firm. Again because it is a whipped product, the container will have less volume as the whipped butters melt. WHAT ARE WE DOING TO HELP THE PROBLEM During hot weather we do our best to protect our products from melting in transit.
We check every product before it is packed for shipping
We add a cool pack to every package going to warm weather
We wrap our delicate products in bubble wrap or other padding to add another layer of insulation. As a result, most products shipped to warm weather arrive without melting. But please understand there is no way that we can ship products and completely control the high heat temperatures of summer, trucks and mailboxes.
Gorgeous Skin. Gorgeous You.
