Captex SBE/ButterEZ (INCI Caprylic/capric/stearic triglycerides) is as a way of reducing grains in our butters. It's simple to use it in this capacity, and once mixed up, you can use it as you would any butter.
UNREFINED SHEA BUTTER WITH CAPTEX SBE/BUTTER EZ
80% shea butter
20% Captex SBE/ButterEZ
Weigh all ingredients in a heaproof container and put into a double boiler to melt. Remember to get the temperature above 70˚C so all the fatty acids melt. Remove from the heat and place in the freezer for about 20 minutes or so, depending upon how much you've melted. Remove from the freezer and put into a product or storage container until you want to use it. Enjoy.
Yep, it really is that easy. And it's something you can do with any butter that is annoying you with grains.
