All Baraka orders are now shipped carbon free, and benefit rural women in Ghana and Kenya
Every Baraka Shipment to our customers is now shipped carbon neutral, with the support going towards a project in Kenya, providing hard-working rural women with stoves that reduce cooking time, conserve fuel, combat climate change and deforestation and reduce the fuel cost for the women.
This only happened because of the support and encouragement of our customers.
We are often asked, Why is African Black Soap called Black Soap? The most common answer is that it is because of the dark colour given from the ash of locally harvested plants and peels that are used to create natural sodium hydroxide, which breaks the molecules of the oils and butters apart and bonds with them to create a new compound called Soap!
The hard-working women of Konjiehi are getting a new enterprise center and the community is getting a new well thanks to Baraka's customers and their purchases of Baraka butters and oils. Every purchase makes a difference
Red Palm Oilis great in body butters and skin and hair formulations, bringing many benefits and so easy to work with.
