Our Community Trade mango seed oil is sustainably sourced from Manorama Industries in Chattisgarh, India. We began working with the local women’s cooperatives there in 2017. They hand-collect the mangos from the forest floor, hand-peel the flesh and crack the seeds. They then send them to a production facility to extract their nourishing oil. Manorama Industries give the cooperatives training on harvesting methods, helping protect India’s mango trees while providing a sustainable source of income. During harvesting season, these women carry an incredible 10-20kg of fruit every day.
Mango seed oil is loved for its high antioxidant content, as well as Vitamin A and E, which help to care for skin.

Mango is the national fruit of India. Its rich seed oil is also one of India’s biggest success stories, as it’s extracted from the kernel, which would otherwise be wasted. Every part of the fruit is used, leading to its nickname: ‘Gold on the streets of India.’
