What are the benefits of Mango Butter
Mango butter contains natural emollient qualities that help keep the skin moisturized, therefore when applied to the scalp it restores and maintains the moisture and promotes cell regeneration. This all contributes to a healthy scalp that in turn results in healthy hair growth.  Mango butter possesses similar qualities to cocoa butter and shea butter in the way of consistency and benefits, however it contains higher levels of fatty acid making it a more intensive moisturizer.  Lack of moisture in the hair can result in weak, brittle hair and in turn leads to breakage and ultimately hair loss. Mango butter contains high levels of antioxidants and beneficial vitamins A, C, and E.
 
You can use it alone or add it to your favorite conditioner to give you extra moisture. It’s also a great additive for shampoos and hair creams.
 
It has been proven that vitamins A and C have a direct influence on hair growth making this ingredient a very important contributor to healthy hair. This natural butter also helps shield against harmful UV rays protecting both the hair and scalp from potential sun damage, making it an extremely effective sunscreen for the hair.

Great Moisturizer for Skin

Mango butter is a great option to keep dry skin moisturized. Try this recipe at home:
  • 8oz mango butter
  • 3oz fractionated coconut oil
  • 40 drops  essential oil of your choice
  • 1/4 tsp Vitamin E (pure) preservative (optional)

Instructions…

  • Heat 8oz of mango butter on very low heat, instead of melting it completely, if you can just soften enough to mix you will have less problem with grains – the same goes for shea butter.

Here is an article with ‘slow/gentle melt’ instructions to avoid grains.

It can be done on a double boiler system if you wish.......

  • When it is soft enough to manage, add 3oz of fractionated coconut oil.
  • Stir it up and put into jars. You will probably want to scoop it in with a spoon rather than pour.  It will be soft enough to be workable at this point.
Bottle it and use as desired. Depending on how much you plan to make, adjust the recipe accordingly.
 
Home Recipe Option #2:
 

YOU'LL NEED.....

1) A saucepan
2) A mixing bowl
3) Suitable jar/s or tin/s
4) Kitchen scales
5) Teaspoon and 1/4 teaspoon measures
6) Electric hand-held whisk

INGREDIENTS


55g Cocoa Butter
55g Shea Butter
55g Mango Butter
5ml (1tsp) Wheatgerm oil
15ml (3tsp) beeswax pellets
5ml (1tsp) Mango Fragrance
1/4 tsp Vitamin E (pure) preservative (optional)

HOW TO.....


Weigh the cocoa butter, shea butter, mango butter and beeswax into the saucepan and put on a gentle heat until completely melted. Continue heating gently for a few minutes (this helps minimize any grainyness in the final product). Take off the heat and pour into the mixing bowl. Add the vitamin E (optional) , stir well then leave to cool.

To speed things up you may wish to put the bowl into a fridge. Once the product has cooled to a soft semi-solid consistency, add your fragrance and take your electric whisk, whisking the oils until they take on a near mouse-like quality, which will happen when they take in enough air to solidify (you will notice the whisk slowing down as the product cools and thickens).

Spoon into suitable containers and allow to fully cool.

There! You've made Mango Body Butter. Wasn't that easy!
