Shea, mango and cocoa butters are three types of plant-based, oily butters often incorporated into skincare products. Shea butter comes from the African shea tree; mango butter comes from the tropical mango fruit tree; and cocoa butter comes from the cocoa plant.
Shea, mango and cocoa butters are safe and effective for use all over your body. Although they're commonly used in body creams and lotions, they can be used elsewhere, including on your lips, according to the Northwestern Health Sciences University. When applied topically, they offer several skin-conditioning benefits.
Shea, mango and cocoa butters are "exceptionally beneficial for dry skin", according to skincare expert Paula Begoun, author of "Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me." She says the butters work as effective emollients, hydrating your skin by trapping critical moisture in your skin cells to prevent dehydration.

Vitamins and Minerals
Because they come from plant seeds, these plant butters contain inherent trace amounts of vitamins that can help nourish and condition your skin. For example, the American Shea Butter Institute reports that shea butter contains vitamins E and A. Botanical.com also reports that mango and cocoa butters hold various minerals and vitamins. The exact amount varies widely according to the health of the original plant and the way the skincare product was manufactured.
Unlike synthetic moisturizers and chemical-based emollients such as glycerin, these butters are all-natural and derived completely from plants. Some manufacturers also source their butters from certified organic farms, ideal for those who want to avoid all potential exposure to synthetic ingredients.
Plant butters help to mimic the natural oils produced by your skin, according to Begoun. Thus, your skin won't be unnecessarily irritated or aggravated by the application of shea, mango or cocoa butters, ideal for those who have sensitive skin.
