High Melt Shea Butter is also known as Stearin, a fat fraction of shea nut butter with a higher melting point than traditional shea nut butter(109°F) This fully refined shea butter is a harder material than our softer shea nut butter and is white in color with an odorless aroma. Stearic acid is the primary fatty acid in high melt shea nut butter, followed by oleic acid the liquid fraction. This type of Shea Butter is used throughout the cosmetic and personal care industry in the production of a wide range of topical products such as lip balms, body butter, and lotions. General formulations for cosmetic materials that may be exposed to changing or warmer temperatures utilize high-melt shea butter to help prevent any graininess or melting from occurring in the end product. This is also widely used as a cocoa butter alternative in formulations. Another great use of this higher melting point butter is to mix it with lower melting point oils to create your own custom butter.
