Mango Butter – A Lightweight Moisturizer Your Skin Will Love
Similar, to its more famous cousins, shea and cocoa butter, mango butter is a real treat for your skin. If you've never used it before, now might be the right time to pay attention to this amazing natural skin enhancer. Its popularity is only growing, thanks to its lightweight, silky texture, subtle scent and superb skin care abilities.
Mango butter is derived from the seed of the mango fruit. It is chock full of nourishing fatty acids and vitamins that your skin will love. The following are only some of the many ways mango butter can help you improve the health and appearance of your skin.
Benefits of Mango Butter for Your Skin
Mango butter contains vitamins A, C and E, as well as linoleic (or omega-6) and oleic (omega-9) fatty acids. When applied to the skin, it melts easily penetrating the deeper layers of the skin. It is one of the best natural moisturizers out there, as it reinforces the skin's lipid barrier and prevents future dryness. Mango butter is so healing and nourishing, you can even use it to relieve extremely dry skin. Its anti-inflammatory properties also help soothe redness and itchiness, and ease the conditions of eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and many other skin sensitivities. Although rich and nourishing, mango butter is very lightweight and not likely to clog pores or leave a greasy residue. That is why even people with oily or acne prone skin can use this butter to moisturize their skin (although, as with all other products, it would be best to patch test it first).
Mango butter is also an amazing anti-aging agent. It contains several important antioxidants that protect the skin against free radicals (which are amongst the most common culprits behind the formation of premature aging signs). One of these antioxidants, vitamin A, also stimulates the skin renewal process by encouraging the skin to produce new, healthy skin cells faster than it normally would. Mango butter conditions the skin, improving its elasticity and making it soft, smooth and glowing. Including it into your everyday skin care routine is one of the best things you can do for your skin, and your skin will show you how beneficial this butter is by looking amazing for years to come.
