Mango Butter, Mangifera indica, a gentle butter obtained from the fruit kernels of the Mango tree, is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids necessary to restore skin tone, elasticity, and flexibility.
It is a great moisturizer for all skin types, but especially mature, dry, or sun-damaged skin. The rich, nourishing nature of this emollient butter can even help benefit those suffering from dry irritated conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. Its gentle quality makes it an ideal ingredient for those with sensitive skin.
Mango Butter has a remarkable texture that is light and non-greasy but also creamy and highly moisturizing. When applied topically, mango butter can form a protective layer that may help moisturize skin. This smooth butter glides on easily and absorbs into the skin and hair with ease. Mango Butter is non-comedogenic which means that it will not clog pores or aggravate acne-prone skin.
In hair care, mango butter replaces moisture which protects hair from drying, thereby controlling frizz. As it seals in moisture it helps reduce breakage and hair loss by strengthening hair follicles, encouraging the growth of stronger, healthier hair. Mango butter promotes softness and elasticity, boosts volume, and adds shine which helps hair look and feel soft and lustrous.
