Thanks curlyhairmichuk!! I ended up buying some from the site you posted. Couldn't find it anywhere else! Now how do I use it!! Its in a powder form. Has anyone ever used powder extracts! Should I try adding it to my infusions?

Thanks!!

I found some info on newdirectionaromatics website. They have forum, which has lots of info, but I haven't had a chance to check it all out yet. They also have the msds for each extract. The one for mango said its soluble in water. I'm going to add it to my herbal tea infusion, once it has warmed. I read that if the water is to hot the powder gets lumpy. I'll report back what happens!! Thanks a bunch!

That's weird, because I get the following message if I click on the link or if I type in the website..

Bumping this very old thread. I was searching one thing, got distracted by another and have gone off on a wild tangent and now it's almost 5.30am.

Anyway, on an unrelated search, I noted someone was trying to copy KCKT and make their own, but was struggling with the first ingredient - mango fruit extract. I don't believe that this refers to the liquid extract you can get for weight-loss, but the powder as above. I wondered if it's even available in large quantities of liquid?? If not, does this mean in KCKT the first ingredient is a bit deceptive in that it's really mainly water with a small amount of the powder dissolved in it?
What are the benefits of the powder/extract? Similar to mango butter? But mango butter is from the seed and extract from the fruit, no? I wonder how much they use in the KCKT... Hmmm! I know the powder 'extract' is used in Indian/Asian cooking (amchoor) so should be easy to find; does anyone have any experience using it for hair/skin?

Google searches just bombard me with weight-loss items; NC search brings up everything with 'mango' and 'extract' (loads!) not 'mango extract' as one phrase.

Why is it called an 'extract' when nothing is extracted?

I now want a curry.
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

mango butter is different from mango extract.

mango butter is the fatty substance extracted from the mango seed (kernel). It is a butter similar to shea. Mango oil, is the liquid part of mango butter.

mango extract is not the butter. I think it is extracted from the flesh of the mango. I had no idea about anything related to weight-loss regarding mango extract.

yes, you can get mango extract in liquid and powder form.

note that cosmetic manufacturers have access to LOADS of ingredients that you cannot access from smaller suppliers.
I found mango extract at a store, but I can't find mango butter. Know any stored that have it?
I don't know of any stores but you can get it online at camdengrey.
