Recipes With Mango Butter

If you’ve ever eaten a mango, you’re probably familiar with the fruit’s delicious flavor and sweet tropical scent. But did you know that the big, woody seed you toss from this fruity snack contains a bunch of benefits?

Mango butter is rich in vitamins A, C and E, fatty acids and antioxidants, making it extremely nourishing to hair and skin. It is surprisingly rich yet simultaneously light and non-greasy. It’s great for all skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone types, and provides long-lasting moisture you’ll quickly become addicted to.
