Research! Mango Butter and Date Oil

I’m researching two new oils and interested in how they will work in skincare products.

First-

Mango Butter

Mango butter is made from the kernels of the mango tree. It is similar to cocoa butter in that it has a high stearic acid content. Mango butter has good emollience and is said to prevent drying of the skin and formation of wrinkles. Mango butter also reduces degeneration of skin cells and restores elasticity. It is solid at room temperature making it good for lip balm and lotion bars. I’ve read it is good at soothing eczema and psoriasis as well.

Second-

Date Oil

Even though it’s been used for thousands of years, I’ve had a harder time finding more information on Date Oil. High in fatty acids, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, thiamine, and vitamin E, it is thought to have skin regenerating properties that naturally tighten and rejuvenate the structure.

I would love to hear from you and if you have used either of these two oils. What are you thoughts and experiences? Any suggestions on what to make?
