Long before the Spanish conquest of the Caribbean islands, the Caribbean Plate cradled a vibrant culture that mirrored the tropical spirit of their homeland. Known as the Tainos, these people’s spirituality centred on elements of the earth; they worshipped the moon, still waters, crops and fertility. Such was their fervour towards their land, that the heavens granted them a magical gift in return for their devotion: a divine mango whose every part would bless the Tainos tribe. The pulp supplied the Tainos with sweet nourishment, but it was the kernel that became the heart of the Tainos’ culture. The kernel extracts provided the tribe with a sacred butter that shone on the skin and served as a sublime emollient against the harsh, drying sun. The butter was applied as a face film by day and as a face pack by night, working in perfect harmony with the sun and the moon. The tribe came to worship the butter as a holy antidote that worked to protect their skin from elemental forces. In time, the Caribbean mango butter became deep-seated in the Tainos’ legacy, one that is still remembered and celebrated.
