The Mango & Pumpkin Seed Twisting Butter is a rich, creamy blend of nourishing mango butter, coconut oil, pumpkin seed oil, and kukui nut oil (the official tree of Hawaii!). This decadent butter works best for softening, nourishing, sealing, and creating/holding twist outs and braid outs. This product uses only natural and quality ingredients.
Mango butter has natural emollient properties and regenerative activity and has traditionally been used in the rainforest and tropics for its softening, soothing, moisturizing, and protective properties. It has a composition similar to Shea and Cocoa butter and is an excellent source of essential fatty acids. Mango butter has a mild, slightly sweet scent and easily blends with other ingredients. It’s great for nourishing the hair shaft and conditioning dry, brittle hair.
Coconut oil is rich in carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals and has been used for the hair for thousands of years. Certain components in it keep the hair strong, nourished and protected from the effects of premature aging, like baldness and excessive hair loss. It helps to reduce protein loss in both damaged as well as undamaged hair. It’s rich in lauric acid (a saturated fat particularly found in coconut oil), has a high affinity for hair protein, and easily penetrates inside the hair shaft, which is due to its low molecular weight. Coconut oil also has high moisture retaining capacity, it does not let moisture escape, thus keeping hair moist and soft, which prevents breakage of hair. Finally, the various fatty acids present in coconut oil serve as very good anti-dandruff agents.
Pumpkin Seed oil is high in nutrient content and is an excellent source of essential fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins, and sterols. It contains Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, as well as vitamins A and C, zinc, and other trace minerals and vitamins.
Kukui Nut oil comes from the official state tree of Hawaii, also known as the candlenut tree. It has been used by natives for hundreds of years for the oil’s high penetrability and soothing properties. Kukui nut oil contains high levels of the essential fatty acids linoleic and alpha-linolenic, and it is readily absorbed into the skin and hair shaft.
