Verse Mango (Mangifera indica)
Mangos are a great source of vitamins and nutrients - in fact, it's one of the most nutritious foods in the world! Their juice is highly antioxidant, antibacterial and rich in exfoliating enzymes that cleanse and give gloss to the skin and hair.
The thick, green and shiny leaves of the very large mango tree are beloved for the shadow they provide wherever they grow. The fruits are celebrated in many Indian legends where they often relate to beautiful women, appealing fragrances, abundance, and luxurious meals. Whereas mangos seem exotic in countries like the UK, they are actually more widely cultivated and consumed across the world than apples!
Ripe mangos are very sweet and have a unique, aromatic taste. Much like pineapples (with bromelain) and papayas (with papain), mangos and kiwis contain an enzyme called actinidin that dissolves and removes dead skin cells. A powerful exfoliation that leaves the scalp and hair cleansed and shiny.
