Native to Western Africa, Mango butter is a fatty butter substance with a yellowish tint. It has been used for centuries due to the high vitamin content (Vitamins E and A) as well as high antioxidant activity. Mango butter lacks the aroma that lingers on other butters, making it a great skin treatment for those sensitive to odour. Also, it’s silky smooth consistency will leave your face feeling clean and natural, free of a greasy after coat.
How to use this item:
1. Use as a moisturiser
Used either solid or melted, rub a generous amount of mango butter onto the face and rub thoroughly until fully absorbed.
2. Use as a hair conditioner

3. Creating customisable creams, lotions
