Mango butter comes from mango fruit, more precisely from seed kernel of the fruit.
As with most natural fruits, the seed has just as many benefits as the flesh.
The mango seed can be formed into a powder, oil, or butter, depending on how it’s processed. Typically, mango butter is cold-pressed from the seeds, and it’s moisturizing without being greasy which is similar to cocoa and shea butters.
Mango butter is firm, rich, white or creamy colour and has fresh, subtle scent.
One point to note about mango butter is this butter is very safe for babies and children and beneficial for skin of pregnant women.
