Shea butter is a great ingredient for lip care because it is rich in vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and fatty acids. These nutrients are essential for keeping the lips healthy and soft. Shea butter is also a natural antioxidant, which means it can help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals.

Before you can whip shea to make body butters it is whipped vigorously by hand to coagulate the oils.  Much like churning cream to make butter.

Roasted Shea Butter? Seriously? How do you Roast Shea Butter?

Fact: All handmade shea butter is roasted to help release the oils. Factory made shea butter uses chemicals and toxins to release the oils.

Handmade.  Small Batch.  What do they really mean when it comes to Shea Butter?

They mean a lot, when you realize that the alternative to handmade shea butter is mechanically processed and chemically extracted!  Yuck!

Shea Butter is shea butter is shea butter, right? WRONG!

Not all shea butter is created equal.  Read and learn more about color, smell, refined/unrefined, and some information that may surprise you. 

Is your shea butter hand-made using time-tested traditional practices and techniques passed down through generations? 

Or is it made in factories with the oil extracted from the shea nut using chemicals, solvents and machinery?

Does it matter? We think so, but judge for yourself.  

Baraka carries only hand-made shea butter, lovingly produced by hard working women using proven traditional techniques and processes taught to them by their mothers and grandmother.

Watch, listen and learn how Baraka Shea Butter is made.

This video takes you through the entire process, starting in the wild shea forest and finishing with beautiful, hand-crafted shea butter.

One of the most amazing, mind-blowing parts of how shea butter is made.

Dry, mealy material goes into a grinder and comes out as an oily, viscous substance, nearly ready to release the magic of shea butter.
