Mango oil is a Seed Oil extracted from the stone of the mango, the fruit of the Mangifera indica tree. The oil is semi-solid at room temperatures but melts on contact with warm skin, making it extensively appealing for baby creams, suncare balms, hair products, and other moisturizing products. Considered to be India’s 'King of Fruits' the Mangifera indica botanical – better known as the Mango Tree – yields a fruit containing the seed that is the source of the emollient known as Mango Butter which can be used as an alternative to shea or cocoa butter. In the ancient medicinal system of Ayurveda, the Mangifera indica herb has been used for over 4000 years with the belief that it had the ability to strengthen the heart, improve brain activity, and increase the body’s immunity. The natural fat derived from the fruit’s seeds is what is referred to as the butter, which shares the same reputation as its fruit source.
