Mango Butter originates from the Mango Tree ‘Mangifera Indica’ native to South Asia. The tree is self-fertile, meaning it will produce fruit without cross-pollination. It produces fruit ranging from 140 grams to 2 kilograms in weight. The ripe fruit varies from yellow orange to red and give off a distinctive resinous, sweet smell.
HOW IT’S MADE?
Mango Butter is typically extracted by an Expeller also known as Cold Pressing method. It firstly starts off when freshly ripened mango’s are harvested from the tress. The oil bearing seeds of the fruit are then extracted and placed into a hydraulic press. Undergoing high pressure and friction, the oils are released from the seeds which seep through openings at the bottom of the pressing barrel. The resultant butter is light in colour with a faint scent that retains all of its nutritive value.
WHY DO WE USE IT?
Mango Butter contains Vitamin A, high amounts of vitamin E, C, D, and group B vitamins and in addition with unsaturated Omega-6 fatty acid, Oleic Acid, Stearic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Arachidic Acid and natural antioxidants. Due to its natural emollient it is often used to soften, smooth and moisturize dry skin. Along with softening and soothing properties, it cleanses the skin’s surface of impurities and unblocks pores. The anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory properties of Mango Butter make it an effective soothing agent for skin affected by dryness, eczema, and dermatitis. By restoring and maintaining moisture levels and by boosting cell regeneration, Mango Butter leaves skin looking plump, rejuvenated appearance.
