Exfoliate an cleanse dull dry skin with our whipped and creamy body scrub formulated to be cleansing, moisturizing and gentle to the skin. Prices vary with size.
BodyLove by Tal is dedicated to keeping our products 100% natural and free of harmful synthetic chemicals. Because we do not use synthetic stabilizers or formulate our light and fluffy body butters and scrubs with any wax, they 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.
Majority of these products make their journey without melting.
Unfortunately, melting is a natural reaction to heat and we have no control over the conditions during transit or delivery.
In an effort to educate and better serve our amazing customers, we've included some tips to keep your Shea Butter and Scrub whipped to perfection!
WHY DOES THE MELTING PROBLEM EXIST?
One of my biggest challenges as a formulator of natural skincare products is controlling the effect of the 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 ensure that their products maintain the same consistency and temperature stable. Our natural organic products do not contain these stabilizers or any other synthetic additives.
Our Whipped Butters and Scrubs are formulated to be a semi-soft solid at room temperature.
WHAT TO DO ABOUT MELTING
Once your product is shipped, you will receive a shipping confirmation with a tracking number. Please keep track of your estimated delivery.
On sunny or warm days it is best to refrigerate BEFORE opening the jars. If you open items, 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 moisturiser, 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. The container may actually look half full.
We have had customers scoop out the butter and whip it back up with an electric whisk beater. The butter has to be cold for this to work.
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 butter melts.
WHAT WE ARE 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 wrap our delicate products in bubble wrap or another padding to add another layer of insulation.
As a result, most products shipped in 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.
Until next time...Love the
