Virgin Coconut Oil: Traditional

45 reviews

Baraka’s traditional coconut oil is hand grown and harvested by small-holder farms in Ghana. The coconuts are transported to a food-grade facility where they are traditionally processed using techniques passed down through generations. This traditional method heightens the flavour, creating a sweet, toasted coconutty oil that many prefer for products, cooking, and eating.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Pure 100% natural, virgin, unrefined Baraka Virgin Coconut Oil, hand-made by women and families. No chemicals. No additives. Just pure fairly traded, naturally organic Baraka Coconut Oil.

Cold-pressed is processed entirely without heat and has less taste and odor than traditional.

Amounts under 10 litres are supplied in pouches and the 10 and 20 litre amounts are shipped in lined and sealed buckets.

Hand Harvested Coconut Oils

FROM OUR HANDS TO YOURS

Baraka’s coconut oils support small-holder farmers in Ghana’s Western Region. For most women and families this is the mainstay of their economy. Baraka and its local partners encourage and support multi-cropping, especially the growing of vegetables and food crops for household nutrition and sustenance.

ALL NATURAL

No chemicals, additives, animal testing, or harsh industrial processing. Just pure, natural, virgin coconut oil.

COMMUNITY IMPACT

Every time you purchase Baraka’s coconut oils 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 traditional coconut oil has lots of great benefits:

- Reduces dryness and seals moisture into the skin.

- High in lauric acid which adds a smooth texture to product formulations and also boosts collagen production to maintain the skin’s elasticity. 

- Rich in antioxidants, like vitamin E, to protect the skin and reduce signs of ageing.

- Has anti-inflammatory properties to soothe irritated skin.

- Delicious natural coconutty scent.

HOW TO USE

With lots of great benefits, coconut oil is a popular ingredient in product formulations. It is an excellent addition to body butters and lotions, thanks to its hydrating properties, but also works to cleanse and nourish the skin in soaps.
