Good morning loves! We’re going to be talking about #MangoButter for #ProductMonday today.
Mango Butter is obtained from the seed of the mango fruit and is rich in fatty acids, including both oleic and stearic as well as omega-9. Mango Butter does not smell like mangos since it is not derived from the fruit pulp, but from the seed.
It has a slightly sweet and fatty aroma in its natural form, which is reduced when the butter is refined. It is a semi/hard butter, off-white in color and very similar to cocoa butter. It will usually liquefy upon contact with the skin and subsequently be easily absorbed, leaving a silky satiny smooth and greaseless protective layer. It has a shelf life of up to 24 months if stored in a cool, dry, dark place.
💫Benefits of Mango Butter for Skin
✨Dry Skin – Use for ashy skin, chapping, chafing, rashes, skin cracks, and tough or rough skin (especially feet and elbows)
✨Reducing Fine Lines – Apply to aging and/ or sun damaged skin.
S✨kin Irritation – For use on irritated, itchy skin.
✨Sun Damage – Can be applied after sun damage/ sunburn to soothe skin.
✨Sensitive Skin – For infants or people with sensitive skin, mango butter is a natural alternative for skin care.
✨Massage – Mango butter melts right into the skin and is excellent for massage.
💫Benefits of Mango Butter on Hair:
All butters that can be used for hair have more or less the same benefits. They;
✨Nourish hair and the scalp with vitamins and minerals thereby helping to keep both healthier for longer. This nourishing feature makes oils and butters great for treating dry, damaged and frizzy hair in hot oil treatments and for massaging the scalp.
✨Have moisture sealing properties thereby keeping hair softer for longer. However, all liquid oils (except coconut oil, which is actually solid anyway, and jojoba, which is actually a wax and not an oil) can seal hair better than butters because they have a higher proportion of polyunsaturated fats – the type that cannot penetrate the hair cuticle.
✨Penetrate the hair cuticle to fortify hair from the inside; they do this better than oils because they have a higher amount of saturated fats and monounsaturated fats.
✨Help to boost hair’s shine but not as well as liquid oils.
Mango butter contains tannins, this gives a drier feel compared to other butters. It may be better for people with oilier hair types. That said, tannins give mango butter more anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
Have a lovely week ahead 🙂
