Handcrafted Kombo Butter

FROM OUR HANDS TO YOURS

Kombo butter is made from the seeds of a tropical West African tree called Pycnanthus angolensis, which is also known as the "African nutmeg". The fruits had been going to waste but now Agnes Amoah, the first farmer to sell kombo nuts to Baraka, has encouraged other women in her community to collect them too. This helps to provide a source of income and has also prevented the kombo nut trees from being cut for timber. The tall trees provide natural shade and ecosystem biodiversity for cocoa crops.

ALL NATURAL

No chemicals, additives, animal testing, or harsh industrial processing. Just pure, natural wild-crafted kombo butter.

COMMUNITY IMPACT

Every time you purchase Baraka’s kombo 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

Some of our favourite benefits of kombo butter include:

- High in myristoleic acid to help with muscle and joint pain

- Anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antiseptic properties to fight acne and heal wounds/burns

- Easily absorbed by the skin

- Antioxidant and anti-allergenic properties

- Soothes dry or irritated skin

HOW TO USE

Kombo butter is a brownish-blue color with a thick buttery texture that easily absorbs into the skin. It provides incredible benefits for dry or irritated skin, particularly when combined with other butters (e.g. palm kernel, shea, or cocoa) and carrier oils. Kombo butter can be used directly on the skin or with essential oils and other butters. It works great in balms, butters, soaps and more.

Kombo Pain Relief Balm

I used kombo butter to formulate a balm for pain and sore muscles and so far everyone I gave samples to have had relief be it arthritis or knee pain or migraines.

Highly recommended as an anti inflammatory balm.

Kombo greatness!

I love this butter! I thought my mind was playing tricks on how it actually eased my carpal tunnel pain! I use it in a specific body butter recipe as well!

AMAZING!

This butter was new to me and I was pleasantly surprised! I was told this butter had pain relieving qualities so I tried it on my very sore shoulder. I hadn't been able to sleep for more than 2 hours without waking in pain for several days. I used the Kombo butter straight on the skin and was able to sleep for 6 hours straight which felt phenomenal. When melted this glides on the skin nicely and has no greasy feel. Soaks right in. The butter had a slightly fruity smell that I enjoyed. I will definately be incorporating this butter into my formulations. Another quality product from Baraka!

Never Have I Ever

Never have I ever tried Kombo Butter and I must admit I am pleasantly impressed!!!! I made the Baraka Luxury Whip for the first time not knowing what to expect but Kombo Butter is so awesome. I expected the Whip to be very greasy but it was actually pretty lightweight, absorbs quickly and my skin felt absolutely AMAZING!! I will be incorporating Kombo Butter into my product line up now on!!!
