What is BUTTer?
Originally designed as an all-natural, less expensive alternative to the ointments you find on a typical grocery store shelf, our formula is cloth diaper friendly. CJ's Shea Butter Balm provides deep healing moisturizing relief. Our BUTTer is soothing for baby and also aids in the easy, smooth clean-up of dirty diapers.

I just received my CJ's Original BUTTer®. It seems kind of separated and grainy, unlike others I've received. What's wrong and can I fix it?
There is nothing wrong with your BUTTer. Since we don’t add any kind of stabilizer to our formulation and all the products are all natural, BUTTer will sometimes need a little more TLC than we are accustomed to in commercial products or those with all the ingredients you can’t pronounce! Shea butter will sometimes become grainy due to the heat during transit in the summer or because of temperature fluctuations. It’s not a problem, unless you don’t like it. If you’d prefer your BUTTer to be creamy, just remove the cap and microwave it for about 45-60 seconds (standing up in a microwave-safe cup if it’s a tube). Then replace the cap and shake the bottle well or stir well if it’s a jar or tub. Place it in the freezer to re-harden and it should be smooth and creamy again. Melting the BUTTer melts the crystals in the shea butter and cooling it quickly in the freezer keeps the crystals from reforming.
My scented BUTTer doesn't have much of a smell. What should I do?
Try warming it up for about 45-60 seconds in the microwave and give it a stir. That will bring the scent back out. It probably just settled. Then freeze it so it will not get grainy. When it thaws it will be creamy and yummy smelling.
Is CJ's BUTTer completely cloth diaper safe? Even when used with synthetic fibers? Do I need to use a liner?
Yes!! CJ’s BUTTer is completely cloth diaper safe. No liner needed. It will not cause repelling OR staining and washes out easily with hot water and detergent/soap. There is only a very small amount of lanolin in the formula and it melts away easily in the wash.
My child (or dog) just ate some CJ's BUTTer. Should I be concerned?
CJ’s BUTTer® is edible (although I don’t think it tastes particularly delicious) and is made with food grade ingredients. If a large amount is ingested, you may notice a slight laxative effect when it reaches the large intestine, but unless your child (or dog) is allergic to one of the ingredients, you shouldn't notice any adverse reactions. If you’re still concerned, please call poison control. (This is what we were told when we called.)
Can I use CJ's BUTTer as a nipple cream while breastfeeding?
Yes. CJ’s BUTTer is edible.
