Heat Stability of lipbalm

I am making a natural lipbalm with shea butter, kokum butter, candellila wax and safflower oil.
I have found with heating that it must be held at a high temperature for a certain amount of time so that the balm does not become grainy.
however over time it sets perfectly and is fine if it isnt left in the heat.
If left in the heat can see that one of the butters precipitates out into fine particles causing a mottling effect?

How can i increase the stability and stop this from happening over time? Do i just decrease the butters content?
