Mango butter is what its name precisely suggests - it is a fat derived from mango seeds. It is also known as mango kernel butter. It is usually semi-solid in form when stored in cool temperatures but usually melts when it meets the skin. It possesses excellent moisturizing properties that contribute to nourishing your skin and keeping it healthy.
Common Uses: Mango butter is packed with antioxidants and works as an emollient to soften the skin. This makes it a great ingredient for the skin. Mango Butter is ideal in formulations for lotions, body butters, balms, soaps, shaving creams, hair care products and lip balms. According to some studies, mango butter contains antioxidants like vitamin C that fight free radicals in your skin.

Mango butter is high in unsaponifiable and can develop crystal-like granules of fat due to storage temperature.
- In a double boiler, heat mango butter to 170-185▪F.
- Maintain this temperature for 15-20 minutes to ensure all fat crystals are completely melted.
- After 15-20 minutes allow rapid cooling.
For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon per pound (15 g / 500 g). As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab-scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.
Store in cool temperatures (below 25 °C) away from light and moisture in an air-tight container. The product will become liquid above ambient temperatures (e.g., 36 °C), but will re-solidify upon cooling without affecting functionality. This butter has a shelf-life of one year when stored properly.
