Mango butter provides a vast amount of natural benefits to the health of skin and hair. It has a similar composition to Shea and cocoa butters, so its benefits are similar as well. However, its abundant moisturizing properties also make it an excellent option for many other body care products.
As a moisturizer, mango butter softens and soothes skin and relieves itchiness. As a component of anti-aging products, mango butter is often recommended by dermatologists because it helps restore flexibility to the skin while reducing cell degeneration and fighting off fine lines and wrinkles. It can also combat against stretch marks and so is often used by women during their pregnancies. Other treatment purposes include relieving frostbite, insect bites and muscle tension; healing skin rashes and allergies such as poison ivy and poison oak; and clearing acne blemishes.
