Mango Butter

Mango Butter is a soft, solid, tropical butter with a slight sweet scent. It's extracted from the fruit kernels of the mango tree, which is a tropical evergreen. Mango Butter has a similar composition to that of Shea and Cocoa. It melts upon contact with skin and disperses smoothly, providing a protective, emollient layer.

Mango Butter has been traditionally used in the rainforests and tropics for its skin softening, soothing, moisturizing and protective properties and to restore flexibility and reduce degeneration of skin cells. It also has a protective effect against UV radiation. It can be used as is to provide relief from the dryness of eczema and psoriasis. Dermatologists often recommend Mango Butter for treatment of wrinkles, as most people who use it will notice decreased signs of aging and the disappearance of lines and wrinkles with 4 to 6 weeks of daily use.

Grey Hair

Grey hair can appear at any age. It's not always a sign of aging, it's caused by a reduction of pigment (grey hair) or a complete loss of pigment (white hair), and the reason for it is not fully understood. Grey hair can appear yellow or greenish on many people. As we get older our hair begins to produce less melanin, the same melanin that gives our skin its color.

To counteract the yellow color and leave your hair looking good and shiny, use a grey shampoo and conditioner that has a violet base color instead of a everyday shampoo. They are made specifically for grey hair.

Kokum Butter

Kokum Butter is rich in essential fatty acids, which aid in cell oxygenation and make nutrients more readily available for use by skin tissues. Kokum Butter contains antioxidant vitamin E and helps to regenerate tired and worn skin cells, supports skin elasticity and general flexibility of the skin wall.

Kokum Butter comes from the fruits of the Garcinia Indica Tree in India. The fruit kernels produced by this tree yields an emollient white butter. Kokum Butter is often used as a substitute for Cocoa Butter due to its uniform triglyceride composition. It melts when it comes into contact with the skin. It’s commonly used in lotions, creams and body butters, as well as soaps, cosmetics and toiletries.

Coconut Tucuma Butter Pre Poo

A week ago I did a post on Tucuma Butter and decided to experiment. Here's a Coconut Tucuma Butter Pre-poo that I created.I applied this mixture to my hair and let it sit for an hour (I have thick corse hair). Not only did I love how my natural curls popped but I really enjoyed the softness and moisture that the mixture bought to my hair.
I'll test it a few more times before putting it in the product line.
