As the name implies, mango butter comes from the seeds of the mango tree. Native to South Asia, mango trees are now grown in tropical locations around the world.
While the mango flesh is by far the most popular part of the fruit, the seed itself is full of health benefits. Mango seeds can be powdered, turned into butter and even have their oil extracted, depending on the processing method. When the butter is extracted, it’s heated to almost boiling until it reaches the right consistency and becomes a solid at room temperature, though it will melt on contact with your skin.
When cold-pressed from the seeds into a natural butter, mango makes a butter that is considered very similar to cocoa butter and shea butter because it tends to be moisturizing without being greasy.
