Why Mango Butter is pretty spesh..

I try very hard to select different oils and butters for JOURNEY products.  Each oil and butter are selected because they bring different qualities to the party! This really is the best part of the business for me. 
Mango butter is in our Emulsified Sugar Scrubs and these are my reasons why.. 
Why did I choose Mango Butter? 

Because it's awesome!! It's chock full of moisturizing, essential fatty acids. It’s rich in oleic acid, a mono-unsaturated omega-9 acid; and stearic acid, a saturated fatty acid. These are ingredients that the skin readily recognizes, takes up, and uses to help add moisture, while it tightens and firms. True multi-tasking. 

Here are some of the other ways mango benefits skin:

  • Mango butter plumps the skin: yup! Plump skin will reduce the signs of aging, and because it’s rich in vitamin C, mango butter can help encourage a more plump and tighter look. It also promotes a firmer appearance on skin.  Whoo hoo! Firm, tight, plump and radiant skin? What more could you ask for? 
  • Mango butter contains vitamin A: Vitamin A is one of the natural ingredients that encourages a revitalized, glowing look. Since mango butter is a natural source of vitamin A, it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and increasing skin’s overall youthful look.
  • Say goodbye to dry skin: Dry patches, flakiness, and even sensitive skin can benefit from daily application of mango butter, which goes to work deeply moisturizing.
  • Mango butter reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: Mango butter provides a more lasting type of moisturisation, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles down the line.
  • Protects from environmental stressors: This is a great perk with mango butter—when you apply it to your skin you carry around an extra bit of protection. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t wear sun protection, though!
  • Soothes: Mango butter helps soothe skin.
