The mango seed can be formed into a powder, oil, or butter, depending on how it's processed. Mango butter is obtained from the kernels of the mango tree, and the butter is cold-pressed from the seeds. It possesses a high content of stearic acid which makes it similar to cocoa butter.
Mango butter has good emolliency and lends protection against the sun. It is said to prevent drying of the skin and formation of wrinkles. A wonderful perk is that it has a light aroma and moisturizes without being greasy.
