How To Use Mango Butter for Skincare

Mango is a favourite tropical fruit among many, and is well-loved across Australia. But did you know you can also extract a very useful body butter from the fruit? Reap the skin benefits of our mango butter. 

The “King of Fruits”, mango, can be the source of a wonderful body butter. Mango butter is carefully refined and then deodorised. It is non-greasy and lightweight with a subtle scent and smooth texture. Mango butter is semi-solid in form when stored in cool temperatures but it quickly melts when it comes in contact with the skin. It glides on skin smoothly and disperses evenly as it absorbs well into the skin and hair with ease. Mango butter definitely works well in lotions, body butters, balms, soaps, shaving creams, and hair care formulations.

This can be done by using mango butter as an emulsifier with other essential oils (see ‘Ingredients That Blend Well With Mango Butter’ below) or by adding mango to a face mask. You can apply it directly to your skin the same way you would apply cocoa butter or shea butter.

Keep in mind that mango butter is for topical use only. It should never be ingested orally or applied close to your eyes. 

However, there are a range of benefits to using mango butter.


Mangos have now become a popular and essential ingredient in facial, bodycare and hair products. Aside from its ability to easily melt on skin contact without leaving a greasy residue, mango butter has a wide-range of benefits—making it a fantastic all-purpose butter. Here are some advantages of using this butter:

Safe to use on the skin

Mango butter is great for all skin textures. It can be used for dry, sensitive skin due to its gentle quality and deep moisturising properties. It is non-comedogenic, which means it doesn’t clog pores or aggravate acne-prone and oily skin.

Combats signs of ageing

Mango butter contains essential fatty acids and antioxidants that helps prevent the signs of age lines by nourishing the skin while also promoting elasticity thereby making it an excellent choice for mature skin as well.

Hydrates your hair and scalp

Mango butter also helps retain moisture in natural hair that is prone to drying out. When used in hair, it acts as a scalp conditioner and a sealant to lock in moisture throughout your strands.

Helps treat sunburn

You will be amazed once you know that this butter is an excellent natural moisturiser and calming agent, perfect for treating sunburns. Mango butter can help ease pain, reduce inflammation, and promote recovery. Try gently patting a small amount of butter on the affected region to reduce the severity of sunburn.

Body Butter

To use as body butter, melt it gently, mix with essential oils for fragrance, and then cool to solidify. This luxurious blend can be applied directly to the skin, especially after a shower or after exfoliation.

DIY Soap with Mango Butter

Adding mango butter to DIY soap recipes enhances the soap's aroma and feel. Melt mango butter with your base oils, keeping its proportion around 5-15% of the total oils for a balanced texture. This addition imparts a creamy lather, leaving the skin feeling soft and smelling great!

Addition to Shaving Creams

Incorporating mango butter into shaving cream recipes can significantly enhance the smell and feel of your cream. Melt mango butter and blend it with oils like coconut or jojoba. You can even add aloe vera gel for that extra touch of luxury. This combination yields a cream with a smooth texture that is not harsh on your skin during shaving.

To prolong its shelf life, keep in cool (ideally below 25 degrees celsius) storage away from light and moisture in an unopened container.

Mango butter is a hard butter that does not apply well as a "stand-alone" application; however, once liquefied, warmed, or in contact with the skin, it will disperse thoroughly. To make it more pliable, it's best used in cosmetic formulations or mixed with other ingredients like carrier and essential oils.

Mango Butter FAQs

What Makes Mango Butter So Good? 

Mango offers a fantastic base for body butter. This butter is meticulously refined and deodorised. It gives you a body butter with a light consistency and a faint fruity fragrance. At cooler temperatures, it remains semi-solid, yet effortlessly melts upon skin contact, ensuring a smooth application and uniform distribution. This texture makes mango butter a versatile ingredient in both skincare and hair care products.

Why Is Mango Butter Better Than Shea Butter?

While mango butter isn’t inherently greasy, it is lighter in weight and has a smoother consistency than shea butter due to it containing higher levels of fatty acids.

For your DIY creations, you can always combine mango butter and shea butter and get the benefits of both. 

Is Mango Butter Better than Cocoa Butter?

Both butters are beneficial to the skin and hair, but there are differences between the two. 

Cocoa butter is traditionally heavier in texture and reduces the appearance of dryness. Mango butter, which is more lightweight, can help improve the appearance of oily skin without making it look greasy. Whether mango butter is better than cocoa butter depends on your specific needs and preferences, as both have unique benefits for skin and hair care. 

Mango butter also has a milder scent than cocoa butter, making it ideal for people who prefer a lighter addition to their moisturisers. Its semi-solid state at cooler temperatures allows it to melt upon contact with skin, facilitating easy application.

Cocoa butter, on the other hand, is richer and has a strong, chocolatey scent. Your choice might depend on the specific effect you're looking for: lighter, quick absorption with mango butter, or a richer appearance with cocoa butter. It's also worth considering your own personal preferences regarding texture and aroma.

How to Make Mango Butter?

Mango butter is made by extracting the kernel of the mango fruit and then cold-pressing it to produce a soft, creamy butter. 

To make it at home, you would need to collect mango seeds, clean and dry them, extract the kernel, and then blend it into a smooth paste. This paste can then be processed or used as is, depending on what qualities you want from it, such as odour or viscosity. 

Where Does Mango Butter Come From?

Mango butter comes from the seed kernel of the mango fruit. Once the fruit is consumed or processed for other uses, the seeds are collected. 

These seeds contain the kernel from which the butter is extracted, usually through cold pressing or refining processes, resulting in a semi-solid, creamy butter that retains many of the mango's beneficial properties.

    Excellent Mango Butter

    Published by Lynnette on 29th Oct 2019

    After reading the reviews on N Essentials for how wonderful a moisturiser Mango Butter is I decided to try adding it to my home made body products. I was so impressed with how well my skin is able to absorb the butter, and how nourished my skin felt after use, I made it the main ingredient in my day face cream and an important addition to my night cream. The butter melts at very low temperature and blends well with my other ingredients. The quality of the products from N Essentials far exceeds anywhere else I've purchased from.

    Mango Butter is a luscious, quick absorbing, non greasy alternative to Shea butter. Light weight and luxurious feeling, it works really well in homemade creams, balms and body butters. Makes a terrific moisturizer when used as is.
