We formulate our balms with pure, raw, natural ingredients. We do not include any synthetic stabilizers in this product. This balm is delicate and natural and susceptible to melting in transit on very hot days. We do our best to mitigate this problem of Summer Shipping by packing all our orders in boxes packed with insulation. We also package our balms in glass-lined jars with twist lids to help prevent leakage if melting occurs. Rest assured that melting for short periods won't damage or affect the shelf life of your product.
