I was wondering if mangoes contain glycolic acid? I've read somewher that mangoes are used as an ingredient for skin peeling, so I want to know what type of acids does a mango contain.

Mangoes may contain small amounts of glycolic acid but the main natural sources are sugar cane, sugar beet and some fruits - particularly pineapple, cantaloupe and unripe grapes: It is not easy to find a list of the acids contained in mango. Here is a nutritional analysis: This section of Wikipedia may be helpful, too:
