Our handcrafted Shea Crème is labeled by volume and not weight. A 4 fl oz or 8 fl oz jar will not weigh 4 ounces or 8 ounces. This is why the jar is labeled with the “fl” fluid in front of the ounce marking. We also have the equivalent ml designation printed on the jars, 118 ml and 236 ml, as the appropriate measurement of volume.
When we make the Shea Crème, the ingredients are combined and heated into a liquid form. The Shea Crème is packaged into the jar as a liquid and the jar fill line indicates either 4 fl oz or 8 fl oz.
We understand this can be confusing and hope this clears up any questions. This light and fluffy product is measured in volume not weight.
