🥭 Mango seed butter is high oleic acid, omegas 9 essential fatty acids that soothe and restore, dry, flakey, and irritated skin. These nutrients help to condition the skin, without it feeling greasy.
🥭 Mango seed butter is an occlusive, meaning it forms a protective barrier on the skin locking in hydration, preventing the skin from drying out.
🥭 Mango seed butter is packed full of antioxidants which help to protect the skin from radical damage. Free radicals are molecules that become unstable when exposed to oxidative stressors such as pollution, UV rays and cigarette smoke. They can cause premature ageing, however, the ageing effects can be neutralised by applying antioxidant-rich skincare.
