What Is Mango Butter?
Mango butter comes from the seeds of the mango tree. Native to South Asia, mango trees are now grown in various tropical locations around the world.
Though we enjoy the flesh of a mango as a healthy treat, the seed also offers of health benefits. Mango seeds can be powdered, turned into butter and even have their oil extracted, depending on the processing method. The main chemical constituents of Mango Butter are: Oleic Acid, Stearic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Linoleic Acid, Arachidic Acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E.
Mango butter has a consistency similar to shea butter. However, Mango butter tends to be lighter and creamier than shea butter. Like Shea Butter, Mango butter contains a high level of antioxidants, fatty acids but Mango butter offers more oleic acid and less stearic acid.

Its high vitamin content protects skin against harsh environmental stressors and damage caused by overexposure to harmful UV radiation.
