Mango butter



Mango butter (Mangifera Indica Seed Butter) is obtained from the seeds of the tropical mango tree. The mango tree belongs to the sumac family (Anacardiaceae) and is often cultivated because it provides fruit and oil and is also used as a medicinal plant. The mango tree, which can grow to heights of over 35 meters, has been cultivated in India for around 4,000 years and is now, among other things, also native to Thailand, Pakistan and Brazil. The seed, which looks like a large, flattened bean and is located within the core of the fruit, contains around 9-13% fat. This fat is finally extracted from the seeds by cold pressing to produce mango butter.



Mango butter is often used in cosmetics due to its moisturizing properties Use. The most important ingredients in mango butter are oleic acid, linoleic acid, palmitic acid and stearic acid. It is said to have anti-inflammatory, moisture-preserving and protective properties. Vitamin E, which is also contained in mango butter, supports the regeneration of skin cells, as its tocopherols and physterols contribute to the renewal of the epidermis. Due to these properties, mango butter is particularly suitable for sensitive, easily irritable, dry skin and skin prone to neurodermatitis, but also for relieving inflammatory processes. Of course, mango butter and its natural healing power cannot be missing from our wound balm.
