Chunks in Nipple Balm?

Just bought some EMAB nipple balm and there are white chunks in it. The website says they are just Shea butter and should melt with my body heat, but it takes forever and it HURTS running it on my nipples! Is this normal for this product? Can I remelt it to reincorporate the shea butter? It works great, but ouch!

Re: Chunks in Nipple Balm?

I had one tub like that. I never did anything to it--I just smeared some on my nipples and let it melt however it was going to. I didn't wait for it to melt and then rub or anything.

Mine was a really soft cream with the white blobs in it, so it didn't hurt to put it on. Is yours not a very soft consistency overall?

Strange. I have no chunks here. It's just creamy. It sounds like its old or got too hot. Can you contact the seller.

Mines the same way but I bought mine from a mama on here. She got it too close to a candle and it melted the side a little bit and I never thought much about the little balls but it could be because it got too hot? Doesn't bother me because the overall consistency is still very soft as PP stated.
