As the weather warms up, it's important to take precautions to minimize the chances of your butter melting during transit. While we can't control the weather, we can certainly do our best to prevent melting. However, we cannot guarantee that your butter won't melt during shipping. Please be aware that this is a possibility that you should keep in mind.

To reduce the risk of melting, we strongly advise promptly removing your package from mailboxes, front porches, or any other areas of direct sunlight upon delivery. In the event that your butter does melt during transit, there's no need to worry. Simply allow it to naturally solidify at room temperature and continue using it as usual.

It's important to note that due to the whipped nature of our body butter if it does melt, it may appear "half full" as the air pockets no longer exist in its liquid state.

To further minimize the risk of melting, we recommend keeping the butter away from windows and direct sunlight once you've received it.

Remember, we're doing everything we can to ensure your package arrives in optimal condition, but melting can still occur.


Avoiding melting for future orders


To avoid melted butter when receiving a package, especially during hot weather, there are a few steps you can take:

  1. Opt for expedited shipping: Choose a shipping method that ensures faster delivery times, reducing the chances of your package being exposed to extreme temperatures for a prolonged period.

  2. Track your package: Keep an eye on the tracking information provided by the shipping company. This will give you an estimate of when your package will arrive so that you can be prepared to retrieve it promptly.

  3. Provide delivery instructions: If possible, specify delivery instructions for the carrier. For instance, you can request the package to be left in a shaded area or at a specific location where it won't be exposed to direct sunlight.

  4. Use a secure delivery location: If you have concerns about leaving the package outside your residence, consider providing an alternative delivery address. You could use your workplace or a neighbor's house where someone can accept the package on your behalf.

  5. Plan your schedule: If you know the estimated delivery time, make sure you or someone you trust will be available to retrieve the package as soon as it arrives. This will minimize the time the package spends outside in potentially hot conditions.

  6. Consider package insurance: If the contents of your package are particularly sensitive to heat, you may want to consider purchasing shipping insurance. This way, if the contents are damaged due to extreme temperatures during transit, you can be compensated.

Remember, these steps can help reduce the risk of melted butter, but they may not guarantee complete prevention. It's important to be proactive and take precautions to protect temperature-sensitive items during transit, especially in hot weather.
