Here at Raw Sugar, we love mangoes! We love them in our Cold Pressed juices, eat them on their own, and especially as part of our skincare regimen! You may already be familiar with the amount of health benefits associated with consuming this tropical fruit, but did you know that its benefits extend beyond consumption and into the beauty field?
Here is why we LOVE featuring this fruit as our hero ingredient throughout our product line.
1. Hydrates Skin
Mangoes are full of Antioxidants which are an amazing property in keeping the skin nourished. Potassium and Vitamin E work alongside each other to keep cells hydrated to moisturize the skin.
2. Improves Skin Tone
As well as working to hydrate the skin, Antioxidants also work to improve skin tone. Specifically by working together to soothe and smooth blemishes and patchy areas. Who doesn’t want an even complexion?!
3. Healthy Skin
From Vitamins to Minerals to Antioxidants, mangoes contain an amazing array of beneficial elements for our skin. When applied topically to the skin, as part of your skincare regimen, they all work together for healthier, brighter and softer feeling skin!

4. Prevents Acne Breakouts
Looking for a natural way to fight spots and oily skin? Mango extract may be just the answer. Containing Vitamin C, which works to reduce inflammation caused by acne, and Magnesium, which helps to reduce oily skin, mangoes are packed with cleansing astringent properties. This is a must-have active ingredient to add to your daily skincare regimen!
5. Boosts the Immune System
Applied topically to the skin, mangoes also help to support a healthy immune system. It does this by penetrating the skin and working directly on problem spots. Lather it up, and also eat it, to double the health benefits!
6. Soothes Skin
Mangiferin is a powerful Antioxidant that is found in the seed, skin, and kernel of a mango. The Antioxidant works to help ease inflammation produced by skin conditions like acne or rosacea. At Raw Sugar, our ColdPressed Technology® ensures that we extract the goodness from the WHOLE fruit, not just certain parts of it. This guarantees you are left with all the beneficial properties…rather than just some.
7. Promotes Collagen Production
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies and it works to promote skin elasticity, along with other functions. The Vitamin A found in mangoes can work to diminish fine lines by stimulating Collagen production. The perfect anti-wrinkle buster!
8. Brightens Skin
A very rich source of Vitamin A, mangoes release this vitamin into your skin which works to remove dark spots, and leaves your skin with a healthy glow.
9. Reduces Sun Damage
Although the mango’s sun protection properties do not equate to sunscreen, the heavy presence of Vitamin C works to reduces the damage induced by the sun’s UV rays. This works by protecting your skin against free radicals. Get #Rawlovin this summer!
10. Softens Skin
Our creamy and deeply hydrating Body Butter lets the mango’s Antioxidants shine! Working to deeply moisturize the skin while boosting skin cell repair, there’s a reason mango is our hero ingredient in our Raw Coconut + Mango formulation!
