Tropical Skin Care Secret: Mango Butter!

Tropical Skin Care Secret: Mango Butter!

Favored because of its tropical flavor, the mango is one of the most popular fruits. Mangos contain over 20 different vitamins, minerals and antioxidant compounds.  It is also a good source of potassium because mangos provide 156 mg of potassium per serving.  

Mango butter is cultivated from the seed kernel of the mango trees. They are naturally moisturizing and due to their high vitamin content, can promote healing. Mangos are also incredibly good for the skin, making them a key ingredient in many skin care and beauty products. 

Mango butter is a hard compound at room temperature and is best used in conjunction with other products such as shea or cocoa butter. For this reason, mango butter makes a great base for natural, DIY beauty products such as soaps, lotions, lip balms and facial masks.   

Caution: Mango fruit should be avoided by those on blood thinning medications because the high vitamin-A content could result in increased bleeding risk. There is also known cross allergic reactivity in people with latex allergies due to the content of the anacardic acid present in raw, unripe mangoes.
