Does Shea Butter come in a liquid form?

No. By definition butter is a solid.

Source: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary




Butter But"ter (b[u^]t"t[-e]r), n. [OE. botere, butter, AS. butere, fr. L. butyrum, Gr. boy`tyron; either fr. boy`s ox, cow + tyro`s cheese; or, perhaps, of Scythian origin. Cf. Cow .]


1. An oily, unctuous substance obtained from cream or milk by churning.


2. Any substance resembling butter in degree of consistence, or other qualities, especially, in old chemistry, the chlorides, as butter of antimony, sesquichloride of antimony; also, certain concrete fat oils remaining nearly solid at ordinary temperatures, as butter of cacao, vegetable butter, shea butter.


We have seen products in stores claiming to be Liquid Shea Butter. The saturated fatty acid content of an oil vs the unsaturated fatty acid content of an oil is the determining factor in whether an oil is liquid or solid at room temperature. The saturated fatty acid content of Shea Butter makes it a solid at "room temperature". Shea Butter will liquefy at about 32 degrees centigrade or about 90 degrees fahrenheit.


If the saturated fatty acid content were to be chemically altered, i.e. the saturated fatty acid was lowered chemically thereby increasing the ratio of unsaturated fatty acid in Shea Butter the result would be fractionated Shea Butter mixed with chemical residue used to change the original ratio.
