Family : Anacardiaceae
USE IN KLORANE PRODUCTS
Our mango is cultivated in India using techniques that respect the surrounding ecosystem. The quality of each fruit harvested is controlled in accordance with KLORANE Phytofiliereｮ specifications. Mangos are collected as soon as they begin to ripen, and are then pitted. Their kernels are left to dry naturally in the sun, and are then cold-pressed to extract a butter that is incorporated into KLORANE’s nourishing shampoo and hair care products with mango butter.
PLANT EXTRACT CHARACTERISTICS
The mango is the fruit of the mango tree, a sacred tree of the Anacardiaceae family native to Asia. It is traditionally used for its nourishing properties. We have chosen to cultivate the Mangifera indica L. species for its kernel’s particularly high fatty acid content, which has scientifically proven nourishing and restorative properties.
THE RANGE Mango
BOTANICAL FACT SHEET
Mango is a drupe produced by the mango tree, a tropical tree that can grow to a height of 50 feet. It has very dense, petiolate, lanceolate, elliptical leaves and yellowish-white flowers made up of 5 sepals, 5 petals and 5 stamens, or an oblique ovary with one loculus. The tree bears a large number of drupes, which can grow in many different shapes.
This tree has existed in Asia for nearly 4,000 years. The Hindus used to use it not only as a source of food, but also for medicinal purposes. Mango was notably advocated for curing dental infections. In Europe, it is rarely used for its therapeutic benefits, but it is recommended for its vitamin content.
