Because Gesonde’s products are all-natural, they are sensitive to changes in temperature. Our butters are not formulated using any synthetic stabilizers or with preservatives, therefore some melting or softening of the product may occur during transit in very warm weather. Unfortunately, this is a naturally occurring reaction to heat and we have no control over conditions during transit, delivery, or how long your product sits in warm mailboxes or at your door. Fortunately, the quality and healing properties of our products are not affected by melting. If melting does occur, return the product back to solid by stirring and placing in the refrigerator. Remove and enjoy!
TIP: YOU MAY ALSO USE PRODUCT IN A MELTED STATE.
Gesonde does not use water in our products, therefore we are able to keep our products free from synthetic preservatives. Our antioxidant-rich butters are formulated to combat the oxidation and rancidity process that naturally occurs with butters and oils. We also purchase our raw materials from reputable companies that turn their products over frequently and do not have them sitting on a shelf for extended periods of time.
Proper storage of your product will also help to extend the shelf life your product. Repeated exposure to light, air, and contamination from repeatedly scooping the product with your fingers will eventually cause natural ingredients to break down. The best environment to store your product is in a dark, non-humid, cool room.
Our goal is to deliver a product that is fresh and a fresh product that is natural!! Therefore, we make our products on demand as needed to provide the freshest product possible. It is recommended that you use your product(s) within 6 months.
We use both fragrance and essential oils to scent our products (except for Cocoa Shea, which is naturally scented). Unless specified, avoid using product on face if this, among other areas of the body, is a delicate and sensitive area for you. If unsure, we recommend performing a patch test first.
Shea and mango butters are comprised of many different fatty acids, each having their own unique melting point AND their own unique temperature at which it solidifies again. When these butters melt and then cool too slowly, the fats that are molecularly similar are attracted to each other and MAY cause little fat grains in the product. The quality of your butter has not been compromised!! The grains will melt upon contact with your skin. HOW TO RESOLVE THE ISSUE: melt your product, stir and place in freezer for about 30 minutes, remove from freezer and enjoy! TIP: YOU MAY ALSO USE PRODUCT IN A MELTED STATE.
