Ligne St. Barth Enriched Mango Butter Cream
With the same nimbleness and accuracy of the hummingbird, LIGNE ST BARTH uses the nectar from tropical plants to create the Enriched Mango Butter Cream, suitable for all skin types, particularly mature skin.
Exceptionally rich, it also works wonders as an eye contour cream and a base beneath foundation. With a fruity fragrance of mango and papaya, punctuated with jasmine petals mingling around a middle note of rose, Enriched Mango Butter Cream nourishes and protects, while preventing the accentuation of wrinkles. Used every day, it significantly improves skin hydration, leaving your face clear, fresh and radiant.
The mango tree (Mangifera indica L.) is an evergreen native to India and Burma. It is widely cultivated in the Caribbean for its fleshy fruit that is rich in vitamin C and has a sweet, aromatic flavour. The mango was introduced into the West Indies in the 18th century to provide food for the colonists and slaves, and is now grown in many private gardens. Mangos are one of the most commonly eaten fruits in the Caribbean islands.
The very juicy flesh surrounds a flat, smooth stone, in the middle of which is a large almond that contains a creamy, yellowy fat known as mango butter. This precious oily substance, obtained by cold-pressing the stone, boasts emollient virtues. Extremely rich in fatty acids (including isostearic and oleic acids), and containing unsaponifiables (phytosterols, oleic alcohol, squalene and polyphenols), it creates an excellent protective barrier for the skin and helps regenerate the epidermis.
Details about the main characteristics and traditional uses have been provided as information here above.
N.B.: Enriched Mango Butter Cream is created using an expert technique by the LIGNE ST BARTH laboratory. The physical and chemical process reproduces the membrane structure of the skin’s natural barrier. This type of emulsion intrinsically encourages the absorption of the benefits of the ingredients and is better tolerated, particularly by dehydrated and fragile skin. The shea butter, plant-derived squalane and avocado oil included in the formula reinforce the nourishing, moisturizing and protective properties of the mango butter. Shea is also reputed to be regenerative and softening, while calendula extract is soothing and vitamin E helps prevent ageing. The coconut oil prevents dehydration, while nourishing and softening the epidermis.
ENRICHED MANGO BUTTER CREAM – PAMPERING TIPS
Revive a dull complexion and outshine the sun
Enriched Mango Butter Cream should be applied morning and evening to cleansed skin. Rub over the neck and face, working from the centre out, remembering to include behind your ears. Due to being a supple and versatile cream, it can be used as a base before applying make-up and as an eye contour cream, applied with your fingertips using gentle pats, working from the inside to the outside of the eye. Thanks to its specific lipid structure (see the N.B.), Enriched Mango Butter Cream improves the skin’s natural barrier. Elaborated for mature, dehydrated and delicate skin, its luxurious consistency and composition enriched with natural oils, such as coconut oil, significantly reinforces skin hydration, restoring its elasticity and tone. Day after day, Enriched Mango Butter Cream leaves skin bright, pure, fresh and radiant, and helps keep wrinkles at bay.
