Beyond their distinct and sweet flavor, mangos can also be effective in soothing skin.
The source of mangos’ rich benefits are its seeds. Mango butter is crafted by extracting the content of the mango seed and cold-pressing it into a creamy butter.
Mango butter is a fat that originates from mango seeds — it exists in refined and unrefined forms. Mango butter is semi-solid and melts when it touches the skin.
Like shea and cocoa butter, mango butter can nourish skin and hair and support overall skin health. Some forms of mango butter are also edible.
Mango is a rich source of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Just 100 grams of mango contains most of your daily recommended dose of Vitamin C. It is also a great source of Vitamin E, Vitamin A, folates, and copper.
When applied topically, mangos possess hydrating properties. These qualities make mango a powerful food for nourishing your skin’s health.
Supports Collagen Production
Mango butter contains high concentrations of Vitamin C, which research shows stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen is a compound found in your skin and in the connective tissues that make up your tendons, ligaments, and muscles.
Collagen is the most common protein in the body, but the aging process breaks it down and makes it more difficult to produce more. Collagen helps structure your skin, fortify your bones, and support joints.
When applied topically, mango butter can form a protective layer that may help moisturize your skin. Similar to cocoa butter, mango butter is an effective moisturizer and may help soften your skin.
