What is Mango Butter?

Mango butter is a natural fat extracted from the seeds of the mango fruit (Mangifera indica). Mango butter is known for its rich emollient properties and is widely used in skincare and cosmetic products.

Mango butter is usually solid at room temperature but melts upon contact with the skin. It has a pale to light yellow color and a mild, pleasant aroma reminiscent of mangoes.

The composition of mango butter includes a combination of fatty acids, such as oleic acid, stearic acid, and linoleic acid. These fatty acids contribute to its moisturizing, softening, and soothing effects on the skin.

In skincare, mango butter is used in various products such as lotions, creams, balms, and soaps. It provides deep hydration to the skin, helping to alleviate dryness and maintain its natural moisture balance. Mango butter is particularly beneficial for sensitive or irritated skin, as it can help soothe and nourish. Green Iguana Bath uses Mango Butter in body butters, and (coming soon!) in liquid lotions.

Mango butter is also used in hair care products due to its conditioning properties. It helps to

soften and moisturize the hair, improving its texture and manageability. Additionally, mango butter can contribute to reducing frizz and promoting a healthy shine.

One of the advantages of mango butter is its relatively light texture, which makes it suitable for a wide range of skincare and cosmetic formulations without leaving a heavy or greasy feel on the skin.

Due to its nourishing and moisturizing qualities, mango butter is also used in natural lip balms, body butters, and salves. It can be a great addition to products intended for dry or chapped areas of the body, such as elbows, knees, and heels. has small batch bulk-priced mango butter for sale, here for personal use or in your bath and body business.

As with any new skincare or cosmetic ingredient, it's always a good idea to perform a patch test before using mango butter on larger areas of the skin, especially if you have sensitive skin or known allergies.
