Tips to Tweak the Recipe
You can substitute the Mango Butter with Kokum Butter or Cupacu Butter, they’re anti-aging too and extremely nourishing.
You can use Olive Oil, Sweet Almond Oil or even Coconut Oil instead of Avocado Oil, though I find Avocado best for aging skin.
You can whip the ingredients if you prefer a whipped consistency, instead of a creamy consistency.
You can add a few drops of essential oil for fragrance and added benefits. Frankincense, Lavender, Chamomile, Rose, Geranium and Ylang Ylang are good options.
