Benefits of Mango: Mango butter is a soft butter extracted from kernels of the mango. The mango originates from southern Asia and can be found in warmer tropical climates such as Burma and India. Indigenous people of the rainforest have been reaping the hair and skin care benefits of this magnificent fruit for many centuries.
Mango butter contains natural emollient qualities that help keep the skin moisturised, therefore when applied to the scalp it restores and maintains the moisture and promotes cell regeneration. This all contributes to a healthy scalp that in turn results in healthy hair growth. Mango butter possesses similar qualities to cocoa butter and shea butter in the way of benefits, however it contains higher levels of fatty acid making it a more intensive moisturiser. Lack of moisture in the hair can result in weak, brittle hair and in turn leads to breakage and ultimately hair loss.
Mango butter contains high levels of antioxidants and beneficial vitamins A, C, and E. Just 1 cup of mango can provide you with 80% of your daily vitamin C intake and 25% of vitamin A. It has been proven that vitamins A and C have a direct influence on hair growth making this ingredient a very important contributor to healthy hair. This natural butter also helps shield against harmful UV rays protecting both the hair and scalp from potential sun damage, making it an extremely effective sunscreen for the hair.
Mango butter is a great way to maintain moisture in the hair and keeping it well nourished, as well as providing it with the beneficial vitamins and nutrients it needs to look and feel healthy.
