Shea butter contains various fatty acids which each have a specific temperature range where they melt and solidify. When the butter is melted and heat is unevenly distributed some fatty acids may solidify quicker than others, resulting in a grainy texture. Sometimes these grains take days, weeks or even months to appear. There is nothing wrong with the butter if it is grainy, but most prefer a smooth, buttery texture.

To prevent graininess and grain formation you will need to make sure that heat is evenly distributed during the cool down process. This is best achieved by constantly stirring the melted butter during cool down. Unfortunately simply pouring melted shea butter into jars and leaving to cool at room temperature without evenly distributing the heat will likely result in grains. So rather gently stir your melted butter while it cools for best results.

Incorrect packaging

It was disappointing to find the product not in the container it's advertised in but nonetheless can't fault the shea butter as it's moisturizing and doesn't clog my pores
