Mango Butter Recipe EBOOK

Beauty is not only about how you look on the outside, believe it or not, it runs skin deep! On a normal day, we use ten different products on our skin to look gorgeous. But we don’t realize, we are eating ten different chemicals in different forms. These chemicals can be harsh on our skin as many of us are completely unaware of the ingredients used in creating these cosmetics. But thank god! Today there are products available in the market that are organic and without any side effects.

One of the most common ingredients that are used in creation of skin care products today is Mango Butter.

Mango butter is a certified organic product used for treating skin. Oil pressed and refined from the seed of Mango, this expensive butter is an extraordinary quality base component for body care products and soap making techniques. The composition of Mango butter is similar to Cocoa and Shea Butter; however the fatty acid contents are different. If you smell the butter, you would experience a sweet aroma with gooey texture.

The butter has a rich creamy color. As natural in its form, it has smoothening and regenerating properties. Mango butter acts like a lubricant on the skin, a great source of essential fatty acids and has useful moisturizing properties that work marvelously on your skin. In order to increase the shelf life, store it in dark cool place.

Being hard in consistency, it often gets difficult to apply stand alone. However, once warmed and runny, it will dissolve uniformly onto the skin. Hence, to make it more pliable, it is mixed with other ingredients. Mango butter is one of the most sensual substances that you will ever come across and it also makes your skin look young and healthy.

But how are body butters different from lotions? This brings us to the next section.

 

BODY BUTTER AS AN INGREDIENT

 

We have heard so much about body butters and how they nourish our skin. Some women use them as their daily dose of nourishment, while many do not even try them; because they are higher on the price as compared to the body lotions that are available in the market and also because they are not familiar with the uses and benefits it can offer to your skin. If you have been using the lotions all your life and never tried using body butters, definitely you are missing something. Let us understand how these body butters are different from the lotions.

Body Butter Vs Body Lotion

In a survey, a few ladies were asked if they prefer to use body butter rather than using their regular body lotion, one thought was common amongst most of the women, “How are they different?” The answer lies in the composition and ingredients.

Body lotions are thin and flowy in texture. This is because; most of them have almost 75% of water and 25% of moisturizing agent and ingredients. However, our skin knows the difference. Body lotions wear of quickly, making our skin dry and dull.

Whereas, body butters are created with ingredients like oils and butter primarily. Since they remain on our skin for some time, they tend to penetrate in our skin making it nourished and conditioned. Ultimately the skin looks smooth and soft. Using them in your daily routine will make a difference.

Including in your Daily Regimen

 You must have had mango in your meals and you already know how luscious and refreshing it is. But have you ever tried mango butter?

No doubt, you must have used Shea or Cocoa butter at some point in your life to get rid of stretch marks or get relieved from dry skin. Both are popular in the skin care world. But there is a new entrant in the world of natural skin care, it’s the Mango butter. So what is Mango butter?

Mango butter is made from the seed kernel of Mango fruit. Like any other natural fruit, the seed has many rocking benefits. You can powder them or extract the oil or butter. It completely depends on how it’s processed. Usually, Mango butter is formed by cold pressing the seed in similar fashion to that of Shea or Cocoa butter. It is the pulp where all the magic is stored. It is due to the cold pressing procedure, butter does not have mango scent to it. So you do not have to be worried of smelling like a mango the whole day. It is fairly odorless. Also, the texture of the butter is not too greasy and helps in moisturizing your skin.

Other than the beauty benefits, this amazing ingredient is used in cooking as well, which would be discussed later in the book.

Are you a victim of sun damage, especially even after applying many sunscreen lotions available in the market today? This is a common occurrence and cause of concern – particularly for women living in warm areas. It makes most of us feel miserable when we have to hide the tan behind layers of foundations. However, incorporating it in your daily routine can help you overcome this problem. Mango butter skin care products are all about making your skin radiant and healthy.

BENEFIT # 3

Another common problem that most of us face is stretch marks that occur post pregnancy or when you lose weight. Daily application of mango butter cream on the stretch marks can gradually reduce the ugly patches.

BENEFIT # 4

Mango butter is not only healthy for skin but highly beneficial on hair treatments as well. Dry scalp or hair loss is a problem that is widespread. Due to good quantities of Vitamin A and C in the butter, it potentially helps in hair growth. Other than this, it helps in protecting your scalp from the effects of dangerous UV rays.
