Handcrafted Shea Butter

FROM OUR HANDS TO YOURS

Handcrafted by women in Ghana using age-old techniques passed down through generations. Centuries of practice has taught them how to extract every bit of goodness from the shea nut, and that quality is now passed on in every package of shea butter and all the products made from it.

ALL NATURAL

No chemicals, additives, animal testing, or harsh industrial processing. Just pure, natural unrefined shea butter.

COMMUNITY IMPACT

Every time you purchase Baraka’s shea butter you have a direct impact on the women, families, and communities in northern Ghana. Not only does your order provide the dignity of income to hardworking women but helps support educational and economic projects in the community.

BENEFITS

Our shea butter has lots of great benefits:

FAIR TRADE

All Baraka Shea Butter is community certified fair trade. We pride ourselves on the fair treatment of the women and producers. You can learn more about our agreement here.

CONNECTION TO COMMUNITY

Every purchase has a direct impact on hardworking women and families in northern Ghana. We believe in creating value chains that make a difference, from the women who make Baraka Shea Butter all the way through to the consumers who use products made from it.

RAW AND UNREFINED

Handcrafted using traditional techniques so you know you’re only getting natural shea butter with no added chemicals. Unrefined shea butter also retains all its amazing skin benefits (over 75% of bioactive ingredients like vitamin A & E can be lost in the refining process).

MOISTURIZING

Shea butter is very nourishing and also acts as an emollient to help protect the skin by sealing in moisture.

SOOTHING

This rich butter can help to calm skin irritations such as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.

PROMOTES HEALTHY SKIN

High in vitamins and fatty acids, shea butter can encourage new cell generation and boost collagen production. This could help to minimize the appearance of scars, fine lines and stretch marks with regular use.

HOW TO USE

Shea butter can be used raw and applied directly to the skin for intense hydration. It is also a great butter to use in product formulations for creams, lotions, soaps, salves, shampoos, and more.

    Amazing!

    Baraka Shea butter is the best. I’ve been using unrefined Shea butter in my products for 17 years and usually order from a large reputable supplier in Ontario. This time I decided to try Baraka Shea butter and I almost cried when I got my hands in it! It’s creamy, has a gorgeous light yellow colour & isn’t gritty or grainy. I absolutely freaked out when my order arrived! I’m glad I ordered 18kg because I’m going to use it! Thank you for providing such a beautiful product & for helping women.

    I love Baraka shea butter and share that on the Saponification Nation facebook page every chance I get. It's nice that Bramble Berry carries it too now.

    Best Shea Butter!!!

    You can’t go wrong with Bataks Shea Butter. I am in love since I ordered the first time. The smell and softness of this butter is unbelievable amazing. I use it mainly for my soaps and it’s amazing. Shipping is fast and packing is top notch. Communication is also best. Wayne is quick in answering questions and is always there if you need more information. Thanks to all the women who do an outstanding job and making this happen.

    Excellent quality!

    I am using this in my bath and body products. I should have ordered a larger size as this Shea butter is as good as it gets. The smell and consistency are excellent. Highly recommend! Thank you to all who are involved in producing this, your hard work is appreciated.

    Love it!

    I make my own body butter and this is definitely one of the best shea butter I’ve bought. Will happily purchase more in the future. I love seeing who is behind the company and being able to read where the product is sourced. I bought the organic shea butter :)

    I LOVE THIS SHEA BUTTER!!!

    This is quite possibly the best shea butter I've tried to date. The rich creamy consistency is the best ever. I absolutely love how well it works in my all-natural soap and skincare products. I keep coming back here, lol. I pray that they can keep the 55lb product in stock. It seems to be sold out pretty often. It appears I'm not the only one that loves it! :-)

    Best Shea Butter ever

    I will only ever buy Shea from here. It’s real it’s not the processed hard “fake stuff” all the good stuff has not been stripped away. It smells wonderful, super soft. My soaps feel amazing because of it. I also get to help the village that make it so that’s an amazing bonus for me. Love it love it love it!
