Mango Butter (Mangifera Indica)

By Ann C Wooledge
on September 01, 2009

Mango butter is solid and from the seed kernel of mango fruit. The Mango tree is a tropical evergreen tree from India and Malaysia. From its seed a firm “butter” is rendered, suitable for soaps, cosmetics, toiletries and pharmaceuticals. Often when suppliers incorrectly heat or store mango butter it forms little fat granules or crystals that make it feel lumpy. To correct this simply heat it in a double broiler to 170-185 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes. Mango butter exhibits excellent moisturizing for lotions and good lubricity on skin. It melts at skin temperatures making it ideal for sticks, balms and suppositories. It also counters the drying effects of bar soaps and cleansers.
