    i have a bunch of pure unrefined shea butter jammed into a jar that i use for mixtures and creams and for my skin....and i looked inside and its starting to look all white (the originial color is yellow)....it smells the same and shea butter is supposed to last like two years....although the spot i was keeping it in was cool, but not dark....

    any ideas as to whats goin on??

    The funny thing is I used to have a jar of shea butter than came white. It was almost like Crisco (is Crisco still a product and is it still white? :look: ). I wish I could find that shea butter again but Sally Beauty stopped selling it. Anyway, I think it's just fine. :) Perhaps it changed based on where you store it (hot vs cold place). How long have you had it?

    Back home at last. Pounding the pavement in a few
    It's normal. It's probably the crystalization from verying temperature in where you are storing it.

    I just use mine by itself. Stick it in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it up and presto! I love that stuff. It's very heavy, but I'm never giving it up! :)

    You might want to store it in your freezer until you are ready to use it, I had a gang of that stuff and that's where I stored it....
