Red Palm Body Butter

Red Palm Body Butter

Baraka Red Palm Body Butter is made from  Baraka Red Palm Oil,  Shea Butter,  Cocoa Butter and  Kombo Butter with hand-extracted BC Cedar Oil added.

Baraka Red Palm Oil comes from Palm Fruit, hand-grown on small-holder farms in rural Ghana. It is minimally processed, which reduces oxidation and aids absorption into the skin.

Red Palm Oil is great in body butters and skin and hair formulations, bringing many benefits and so easy to work with.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

Each unit contains 60ml of hand crafted body butter.

HOW TO USE

Red Palm Oil is great in body butters and skin and hair formulations, bringing many benefits and so easy to work with.

It is high in antioxidants, which many claim mitigates the effect of aging on the skin. It contains concentrated levels of Vitamin E, and all the benefits that it brings to skin and hair.

Red Palm Oil contains carotenoids, the same pigments that sweet potatoes and carrots contain. These help protect your skin from harmful UV rays.


CAUTIONS WHEN USING RED PALM OIL

While Red Palm Oil has many amazing properties that will make your hair and skin happy, it may make you sad if you don’t take care of the colour. It can stain sheets and clothes (fortunately it absorbs quickly and the very things that give it the colour (carotenoids) are powerful protection against UV Rays). If you have light hair you should test it in a small area and avoid leaving it on your hair for an extended period.
