Mango butter is traditionally used in tropical regions to moisturize and heal skin but has found its way into Western skin care treatments. This fast absorbing, non-greasy fat is lightly scented, off-white in color and a solid at room temperature. Mango butter is extracted from the pulp of the mango seed, which is rich in oleic and stearic acids and omega-9. It is similar to cocoa butter with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and antiseptic properties.

Mango butter is often used in wound care due to its ability to regenerate skin. In a study performed to test the effectiveness of mango butter on wound healing, specifically cracked skin, results demonstrated mango butter to completely repair skin and predominantly be “antiseptic, healing, soothing and cooling in most of the clinical subjects” as well as “actively replenish[ing] moisture, leaving the skin looking silky smooth and hydrated.”

Dry Skin

Mango butter increases hydration and is presumed to prevent drying of skin by reducing water loss from the epidermis. It’s used to treat dryness caused by eczema and psoriasis plus itchiness from rashes and bug bites.

Anti aging

Antioxidants destroy free radicals to maintain skin elasticity and boost natural skin regeneration. Mango butter’s fatty acids improve skin’s texture and suppleness while preventing signs of premature aging.

Sensitive Skin

From delicate baby skin to sensitive mature skin, mango butter has been found to be non-irritating, soothing and nourishing.

Believed to provide natural protection from ultraviolet (UV) radiation*, mango butter is often used in mineral sunscreens to help boost protection as well as keep skin hydrated. Mango butter is also an effective after-sun treatment to restore moisture and heal sun-damaged skin.
