Scientific Name: {Mangifera indica}
Common Name: {Mango Fruit Extract}

Besides being a delicious summer fruit, mango is packed full of nutrients that our bodies and skin desperate need. It is rich in vitamin C, fiber, natural acids, and moisturizers. Mango is often regarded as “king of the fruit,” as its antioxidant and nutrient content make it one of the most powerful health-boosting fruits available. And unlike other foods that are good for us but do not taste exquisite, mango has a sweet, mild flavor that most people love. Even if you are not a fan of mango as a fruit, you will love its skin benefits!

Mango is extremely high in antioxidants, especially vitamin C, one of the most powerful and most important natural antioxidants. When our skin is exposed to too much sun or environmental pollutants, free radicals begin to develop. These free radicals are rogue cells that travel through our skin, harming every cell they come into contact with.

Vitamin C combats free radicals, neutralizing them so that they can be expelled from the skin.

Mango is an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent, making it great for women who have acne-prone, sensitive skin. Not only does it help to unclog clogged pores, but it can also prevent the formation of further pimples by eliminating the bacteria that often cause pimples. Mango’s antibacterial properties help reduce pimples' occurrence, while the anti-inflammatory properties work to reduce redness in the skin.

If you have sensitive skin, you know that it is very easy for your skin to become red and irritated. Sometimes, just switching to a new product or changing the way you wash your face will stress out your skin. A product that contains mango can help you stop this redness in its tracks and give your complexion time to adjust to a new product or routine. Consistent use of mango can help the skin become more resilient and less likely to irritate.

With its citric, malic, and tartaric acids, Mango helps to maintain proper chemistry in the skin. When skin is unbalanced, it becomes difficult to manage, easily irritated, and uneven in texture and complexion. However, Mango helps to reverse this process, helping the skin appear more even and return to normalcy.
