The Benefits of Mango Butter for Your Hair and Scalp

Mango butter is a natural, plant-based butter derived from the mango fruit. It's packed with a variety of nutrients, such as vitamins A and E, fatty acids, and antioxidants, that help nourish and protect your scalp and hair.

This natural butter can help promote healthy hair growth, reduce scalp itchiness, and minimize the appearance of dandruff. It can also help repair split ends, add shine, and prevent hair breakage. With its wide array of benefits, it’s no wonder that mango butter is becoming increasingly popular for use in hair and scalp care.

What is mango butter?

Mango butter is an emollient, or moisturizing, ingredient that is often used in cosmetics and skin care products. The butter itself is extracted from the seed kernel or kernel of the mango tree fruit, which is native to India and Southeast Asia. Mango butter is a rich source of fatty acids, including stearic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid, and linoleic acid. It is also a good source of vitamins A, B, and E. These vitamins help boost skin hydration, promote collagen production and prevent oxidative damage, which can contribute to skin aging.

Mango butter can also be helpful for those with dry or flaky scalps, and itchy or dandruff-prone scalps, thanks to its high content of fatty acids. It can also help seal in moisture to prevent dryness and flakiness, which may help prevent dandruff from coming back.

Nutrients in mango butter

Mango butter is rich in vitamins A and E. While both vitamins are antioxidants, vitamin A helps fight against skin damage and promotes healthy skin and hair growth. On the other hand, vitamin E aids in protecting skin against free radical damage and can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Mango butter is also high in fatty acids, which help hydrate and nourish the skin, as well as seal in moisture. Two types of fatty acids in mango butter are stearic acid and oleic acid. Stearic acid, which is commonly found in many hair products, can help combat dry, itchy scalps. It can also reduce the risk of dandruff, since it can help seal in moisture and prevent dryness, which can contribute to dandruff.
