PhytoVital - Mango is obtained through a gentle extraction of the fresh fruits of mangifera indica. This aromatic extract contains carbohydrates like fructose, dextrose, arabinose, mannose and different organic acids, specially fruit acids. Different kinds of oligosaccharides, amino acids and vitamins are found as well.
PhytoVital - Mango has a skin hydrating effect due to its polysaccharide/amino acid complex. Young attractive skin is characterized by elasticity and softness associated with correct skin hydration.
Non-ionic emulsifiers are recommended in formulations containing PhytoVital - Mango as they allow the finished product to be slightly acidic. For shampoos the pH can be raised by the addition of sodium hydroxide up to normal 7.0. PhytoVital - Mango is thermally stable and can be added to the water phase at 70 - 75°C prior to emulsification.
PhytoVital - Mango should be stored at roomtemperature under normal conditions. Low temperature can cause cloudiness, but this does not influence the activity and it regains its normal appearance at temperatures exceeding 15°C. PhytoVital - Mango is stable at low temperature in the original unopened container for a minimum of one year.
