Mango Butter is rich in antioxidants, and can therefore soften, smooth and moisturize rough dry skin, also due to its emollient properties.
It is reported to be useful for treating burns, stretch marks, scar reduction, wound healing and skin regeneration such as the smoothing of wrinkles, and the treatment of sunburns.
Mango Oil is very high in natural vitamin C, which encourages the production of collagen, which helps give skin its shape and strength. Good collagen gives a firmer appearance to the skin, and reduces sagging skin.
Mango Oil can be used for both external skin applications, and internally, by pouring it over your food. It is sometimes use in the chocolate industry to supplement cocoa butter, due to its similar fatty acid profile and texture.
Many have reported Mango Oil beneficial in controlling dandruff, and stopping hair loss, when massaged into the scalp.

Moisturizing essential fatty acids, such as oleic acid, and stearic acid, help add moisture to the skin’s layers, repair damaged cells, and improve elasticity. Mango Oil is also the ultimate lip balm.
Mango Oil, hardens a little, in cold weather, like Coconut Oil, but easily melts once it touches the body, so you can use it as a body moisturizer all year round. Gently warm the bottle, so that it becomes an oil.
