Ancient Sunrise® Seed Butters contain no preservatives or synthetic ingredients. They are solid at room temperature, and melt at body temperature. They contain no synthetic ingredients added for convenience. Put your jar of butter in the microwave for 30 - 60 seconds, and squeeze out a drop or two of warm liquid butter and enjoy rubbing the soothing oil into your skin or hair. If you enjoy bath oil, drop the bottle of butter into your warm bath water. It will become liquid in a few minutes, then you can squeeze it out and rub it into your skin.
