Mangoes are known as ‘the king of fruit’ in South Asia, the area to which it is indigenous. They are a bountiful fruit, which are both nutrient dense and immensely flavorful. Their nutrients are not limited to their flesh; their skin, seed, and leaves are full of amazing nutrients.
Mango butter has been utilized for centuries by South Asian Women to protect and deeply moisturize their skin. It has gained attention from the skin care community, being introduced into a greater number of skin care products based on its amazing benefits.
That is why we have formulated our new Island Glow Whipped Body Butters with a key ingredient, mango butter. Mango butter is also one of the ingredients in our Aromatherapy Body Scrubs. We source the finest mango butter from the tropical island of Sri Lanka so you can enjoy their healing powers.
We have outlined some of the amazing properties of mango butter and how they can give you amazing skin.
Protects Your Skin From A Stressful Lifestyle and Early Signs of Aging
Our bodies naturally produce reactive oxygen species that are unstable and reactive. If not regulated, they can cause cellular damage including damage to skin cells.
Our cells have a natural antioxidant response to counter these naturally produced oxygen species. The one thing that can undermine this natural response mechanism is stress. As the body copes with stress, antioxidant responses are unregulated. This can result in cellular damage to the skin, leading to ageing and wrinkles.
Mango butter has a high level of natural antioxidants, which when applied topically can regulate the skin damage caused by oxidative stress. This can prevent the signs of early skin aging such as wrinkles.
Protects Your Skin From The Sun Rays and Soothe Sun Burn
Mango butter has an SPF of 4-6 and thereby contains some protection from the sun. This provides a minimum level of protection; the true benefit of mango butter is its ability to soothe sunburn due to its high level of vitamins and antioxidants.
Helps Retain Skins Natural Moisture
Mango Butter acts as an occlusive agent due to its high level of stearic acid. An occlusive agent forms a physical layer on top of your skin forming a barrier, which seals in your skin’s moisture and prevents it from escaping. This layer of protection is especially important for people who have dry skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
We at Lili Aromatherapy, have utilized mango butter as an occlusive agent not only for its protection but for its aesthetic appeal as well. Mango butter provides our Island Glow Whipped Body Butters the ability to make your skin shine and glow like a full body highlighter.
