What Is Mangifera Indica Extract?

Mango extract is derived from Mangifera indica, or mangoes.[1] Mango trees are native in tropical parts of Asia and the plant has been cultivated for thousands of years in most tropical countries.[2]

What Does Mangifera Indica Extract Do in Our products?

Mango fruit extract is a skin-conditioning agent.[3] We use the ingredient in our bubble bath. However, mango extract can also be found in sunscreen, shampoo, moisturizer, exfoliant, lip balm, and many other products.[4]

Why Puracy Uses Mangifera Indica Extract

Mangifera indica has been an herb in Ayurvedic and indigenous medical systems for thousands of years.[7] The Cosmetics Ingredients Review has deemed that mango seed oil is safe in current practices of use and concentration.[8] Whole Foods has deemed mango fruit extract acceptable in its body care and cleaning product quality standards.[9,10]

How Mangifera Indica Extract Is Made

Mango extract is made by first drying the seeds and/or fruit. The result is then powdered. Ethanol is added, and the mix is then separated or evaporated, leaving the extract behind.[5,6]
