  • When Shea Butter Goes Bad

    I was doing some reading on the different types of shea butter (east vs. west) and came across a video explaining how to tell if your shea butter (SB) has gone bad. This isn't something I hear very much of, so I was very intrigued. Usually, it's the DIY SB recipes you see on youtube or how women use it in their hair.

    This vlogger had yellow SB and noticed white spots and areas in the container. It turned out to be signs of mold and decay. Ew! Also, she said that the smell changed. She also gives a few tips on how to help keep SB fresh. She has done her research, so she's not just making this video from her opinions.

    Interestingly enough, there is such an organization called the American Shea Butter Institute (located on Atlanta, GA), which she communicated with to help with her research. Didn't know it existed. I'm assuming that they are a for-profit group because they don't have a ".org" website. Their online library does have a few links that seem interesting.

        Thanks for sharing. Funny, instinct made me always keep mine in the refrigerator and I only make small batches of my shea & jojobaoil body butter.
