First up: Mango Butter!
Mango Butter is derived from the seeds of the mango tree (Mangifera indica) that originally comes from the Indian subcontinent. The mango butter we use is unscented, so it blends well with any combo of essential oils. Mango butter adds a fantastic amount of moisturization and emollient properties—and is great for your hair, so it works great for shampoo bars as well!Mango-rific Moist Mane:

The uber-famous Shea Butter is made from the fruit seeds from Butyrospermum parkii, a small tree from the Central African savannah. We only use natural, unrefined shea butter, which is super soft, and has the natural light smoky scent of the shea seed. Shea butter is silky smooth and astoundingly moisturizing, soothing, and nourishing for face, hair, and body.Super Shea Silky Smooth:
