Mango peel shrinks as wrinkles after overripening, which physical appearance looks very similar to wrinkled skin of older people. The study includes comparison between UMP (unwrinkled mango peel) and WMP (wrinkled mango peel). FTIR analysis showed higher absorption peak bands for WMP compared to UMP. In DSC experimentation, WMP showed more endothermic nature than UMP. In CHNS elemental analysis, Sulphur was found to be significantly higher in WMP, approximately thrice of UMP. These might also be the possible reasons for the cause of the wrinkled human skin, as the basic compositional elements remain same for mango as well as human.
