- 65 g / 2.29 oz of body butter filled by weight (not volume) in a 125 ml glass jar.
1) Just the Goods whipped foot butter is packed by weight, not volume, so jars containing the batches that turn out more fluffy tend to look as if they are more full than jars containing batches that don’t have as much air whipped into them. There are a number of factors that determine how much air whips into a batch including: temperature when whipping starts, how long a batch rests in the freezer, how long the batch is whipped after the freezing process, or even how cold a batch was when it was packed into the jar and was sealed. These are issue that can be controlled in a mechanized/automated factory setting, but since handmade products involve human interaction, small differences from batch to batch can and do happen. The density, quantity and type of essential oils used in each recipe can also contribute differences between batches.
TL;DR: All jars do contain the same weight of product... the only difference is that some jars may contain fewer microscopic air bubbles.
2) Please note that this all natural product is made without artifical emulfisying agents to prevent it from melting during shipping in the summer. With that being said, Just the Goods has been shipping this product year 'round for the past 11 years and has observed that the shea butter and/or cocoa butter it contains is a resilient carrier oil capable of melting and solidifying multiple times without harming it's composition. As such, these products aren't considered damaged if they melt during shipping and are still perfectly good to use once they have recongealed into balm form. To do this, allow the product to rest in your fridge for approximately an hour. Yes, the texture will different because there won't be as many/any air bubbles trapped in the product from the whipping process, but the product itself is still completely fresh and will work in exactly the same way. Store remaining product in a cool, dry place to maximize longevity.
