Mangifera indica (Mango) Seed Butter
Exactly what is Mango Butter?
Mango Butter is native to tropical regions and is now grown in both hemispheres. The parent species, Mangifera indica, is believed to have been cultivated for about 6,000 years.
Mango butter is extracted from the seed kernels of the lush and juicy tropical mango fruit. The seeds render a firm butter suitable for cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. It is non-greasy, absorbs easily into the skin, and provides a natural protective layer against UV radiation. It has emollient properties and high oxidative ability.
What are the skin benefits?
Mango butter has been traditionally used in the rainforests and tropics for its skin softening, soothing, moisturizing, and protective properties.
It has a high content of stearic acid which makes it similar to cocoa butter. Mango butter has good emolliency and lends protection against UV radiation. It is said to prevent drying of the skin and formation of wrinkles. Mango butter also reduces degeneration of skin cells and restores elasticity.
