When you crack open a jar of Jason’s Shea Nut Butter, you are greeted with a texture and an aroma you would not expect.
The texture of the butter is hard and granular and the smell is of coconuts.
You quickly wonder how Jason’s can sell 1.75oz for $8.00 a jar when the stuff is so hard to get out of the jar!
The Shea Nut Butter scent is strong and it might bother your nose and eyes a bit if you aren’t careful.
One trick when using this sort of Shea Nut Butter is to get it in a liquid state from a granular state and the fastest way to get the Shea Nut Butter into a liquid state is to pick out some of the granular paste, put it in the palm of your hand and rub your other palm into it with great friction.
The end result will be liquid Shea Nut Butter!
Then rub in that greasy mess until it soaks into your hands. I found it can take up to ten minutes for the Shea Nut Butter to blend into your hands — but the greasy feel stays with you — the strong, lingering, scent also may be too much for use in a public place where others with allergies might convene.
Shea Nut Butter is a fascinating product and I am delighted I was able to give it a test and a try. I will, however, be moving back to my favorite Aveeno Hand Cream because it has no scent and it instantly moisturizes as it greaselessly fades into your thirsty hands.
