Natural Skin Care Tip: Shea Butter Spread Test

How do you know if your natural and organic skin care shea butter is authentic? You should look for a third party approval on your packaging such as the USDA Certified Organic Seal to verify authenticity. Also sending a sample of your shea butter to a lab can verify your natural skin care.

A test you can do at home is the “Butter Knife Spread Test.” At room temp, authentic unrefined certified organic Shea Butter will spread nice and smooth without crumbling to pieces. If the Shea Butter is difficult to spread, or if it is lumpy and crumbles, it may be cut with other ingredients.

On occasion, Shea Butter can appear grainy in its most natural state. But if it is authentic Shea Butter, even grainy shea will spread smooth and evenly when put to the butter knife test. Choosing natural skin care can be tricky, but with easy tests like this, you are bound to choose the best!
