Mango butter is a fat derived from the mango seed. This butter is an excellent skin moisturizer, which helps dry, itchy skin conditions (think eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis). Mango butter has a long-lasting emollience; this emollient property nourishes skin and boosts elasticity, thus promoting smoother and firmer skin. It is non-comedogenic (so it will not clog your pores).
Mango butter is also great for the hair! It seals in moisture and strengthens hair follicles, thus reducing breakage and hair loss. These actions encourage the growth of stronger, healthier hair.
