    This is a great idea, but what about the usage of mango butter maybe? It has fantastic properties for the skin, not to mention that it's a natural SPF 20.

    Good knowledge, thank you for sharing! There's no instructions anywhere in there. Where to find? How best to apply? How much? You get my point.
