If you like butters, but don’t like the greasy finish something like shea butter, you need mango butter. It’s amazing.


Strengths: It has a fantastic dry feel that helps oil based things feel less greasy.

Weaknesses: It’s one of the pricier butters.

Alternatives & Substitutions: Cupuacu butter and shea butter are similar in terms of melting point and texture, but they are much slower to absorb—especially the shea butter.

How to Work with It: It’s great in pretty much anything, though I love it in soap making, creams, moisturizers,  body butters, balms, and salves.

Air tight container. Dark location. Cool room temperature.
