“All skin types can benefit from mango seed oil, but dry skin, especially in the colder months, can greatly benefit from its moisturizing properties,” explains plastic surgeon and founder of Cortina Telehealth Dermatology Group Reid McLellan, MD.
“Mango seed oil has a very rich lipid composition (from 8.15% to 13.16%); it’s especially rich in oleic acid and stearic acid,” says Kestlein. “This gives mango seed oil occlusive and emollient properties that help maintain the skin barrier’s nutrition.”
In short, mango seed oil hydrates the skin, filling in cracks, promoting a softer complexion, and locking in that moisture. That’s why it’s such an A+ choice for dry skin types.
