Mango Butter - Ingredient Highlight
Our household uses Mango Butter for everything it is a true multipurpose product that we use every day. We use it for our toddler’s eczema, as a night time face cream, to help heal sunburns, for when our children were infants and experienced cradle cap, split and cracked feet and so many other things. My husband is a white water rafting guide and experiences serious skin chaffing like to the point on week long wilderness trips his skin smells like it’s starting to rot in the affected areas. On one trip I pulled out my mango butter and made him put it on because we were still several days from being able to get to civilization and we didn’t have anything else to try to use... he put it on a couple times a day and it was HEALED totally before we got back to civilization. Since then he always makes sure he has a jar in his bag, night stand, bathroom and pretty much throughout the house. I just counted and we have 7 jars scattered throughout our home at this moment.
