Mango Butter – Saturday Surprise Special
When I opened up the Mango Butter and the fresh scent wafted out, I knew I had to try a body butter with it. I liked the White Refined Shea/Monoi de Tahiti Body Butter Recipe that I made a few weeks ago so well that I decided to tweak that recipe.
I’m glad I did, it’s my new favourite (until the next time I decide to start playing).
So it seemed the obvious thing to introduce Mango Butter as the Saturday Surprise Special this week.
You can get the recipe here – Quick and Easy Mango Body Butter Recipe.
You can also read about how I did a ‘slow melt’ to keep the grains out of the finished body butter.
Here’s a little about it.
ABOUT MANGO BUTTER
Color- Slightly Off White
Scent- Fresh – blends well with citrus. Note: this is not a fruity traditional mango scent. Mango butter is taken from the kernel of the Mango seed. Most if not all mango scented items are fragrance oils.
Saponification Value- 189
Melting point- 101-102 degrees
Mango Butter is said to be helpful in regenerative activity and to restore flexibility and reduce degeneration of skin cells. It’s a favourite of dermatologists for treatment of wrinkles – it’s said that a noticeable difference in 4 – 6 weeks of daily use.
A few other things you can use mango butter for are minor wounds and rough dry skin (it helps to keep the skin supple and provides a protective barrier – this also helps to prevent scarring), stretch marks, excema and psoriasis.
I like it because it feels amazingly silky and smooth, soaks in very well and it’s almost like a clear canvass – it can be tweaked in many different ways by adding essential oils, carrier oils or clays etc.
