Philosophie Superfood Coconut Butters

The Philosophie Coconut Butters are full of love and superfoods! 

Before you open the bottle:

  • Put the entire bottle in warm water for 3 minutes 

  • Then open it and mix up the butter inside! (this instruction is on the back of the bottle too!)

Coconut butter consistency varies depending on the temperature at which it is stored. To soften coconut butter that has hardened in cooler temperatures, simply place the jar in a container of warm water for several minutes or microwave on low for a few seconds at a time to achieve a smooth, creamy consistency. And guess what? No refrigeration necessary!
