Google+ FOOD FOR BEAUTY: Mango Butter | Organics by MelVee

Feb 11, 2013


Mango Butter is made from the seeds of the Mango fruit also known as Mangifera Indica. The seeds of the mango fruit are cold-pressed to produce the butter. People in the rainforest and tropics have been using mango butter for hair and skin care for hundreds of years. It contains important antioxidants and is rich in vitamins, including vitamins A and E. The composition of mango butter resembles that of Shea and Cocoa butter but the fatty acid content is a bit different.

Mango Butter has natural emollient properties, it has been traditionally used for its skin softening, soothing, moisturizing and protective properties to restore flexibility and reduce degeneration of skin cells. It has a protective effect against UV radiation. Dermatologists often recommend Mango Butter for the treatment of wrinkles, as most people who use it will notice decreased signs of aging and the disappearance of lines and wrinkles within 4 to 6 weeks of daily use. Below are some of the other benefits:-

  • Heals skin rash
  • Heals skin peeling, after tanning
  • Clears blemishes and wrinkles
  • Relieves itching skin
  • Shaving cream for a smooth shave
  • Treats small skin wounds and skin cracks
  • Moisturizes and smoothes tough or rough skin
  • Fights frost bite
  • Prevents stretch marks during pregnancy
  • Relieves insect bites
  • Heals muscle fatigue, aches and tension
  • Treats eczema and dermatitis
  • Keeps hair moisturized 
Although raw mango butter is not readily available in Nigeria, there are products that have this butter as part of the main ingredient e.g Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Moisturizer or  Life-Flo Pure Mango Butter which you can easily get in shops around.

Until next post...remain beautiful,
