Mango Butter is expeller pressed from the kernels of the mango fruit. Mango is rich in unsaponifiables, making it highly emollient, while its especially high content of oleic and stearic acids make it comparable to Cocoa Butter in humectant (moisture sealing) properties.
However, unlike Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter
is soft and pliable with a melt point of 86°F-98°F, making it very easy to work with. Mango Butter's emollient and humectant properties may help keep your skin well hydrated, staving the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Like Shea Butter, Mango Butter may confer mild protection from sun damage. Mango Butter's
soothing moisturizing properties make it perfect for crèmes, lotions and body scrubs.
