Always use clean and dry fingers when applying onto the skin. Water introduces bacteria growth. Use a fair amount at a time, as with any butter, too much will be too greasy.

Climate Shipping Note
Our butters are heat sensitive and will start to melt in temperatures above 78 degrees. When shipped during the summer or to hot climates our butters will arrive melted. If your butter arrives melted, do not open it. Place it in a cooler area or stick it in the refrigerator until it firms up. All whipped butters will decrease in volume and may appear nearly half full. During the winter, all butters will be less pliable until it reaches room temperature.
