Mango Butter is obtained from the kernels of the mango tree. It has a high content of stearic acid which makes it similar to cocoa butter, but slightly softer. Mango Butter has good emolliency and lends protection against the sun. It is said to prevent drying of the skin and formation of wrinkles. Mango butter also reduces degeneration of skin cells and restores elasticity.
It is useful for treating burns, and stretch marks. Mango butter's hardness makes it a great butter for stick formulations such as lip balm and lotion bars. It can be used "as is" to provide relief from the dryness of eczema and psoriasis.
*Smallest size comes in biodegradable eco-packaging.
This is a beautiful stand alone butter for my dry skin and my husband is now using it for an itchy skin condition similar to excema. He is very pleased with the results. Will purchase this one again.
