Community Harvested Palm Oils

FROM OUR HANDS TO YOURS

Baraka’s palm oils support small-holder farmers in remote communities whose farms have been developed on degraded forest lands or reclaimed mining areas. This creates lots of positive impacts for the farmers and environment. For most women and families this is the mainstay of their economy.

ALL NATURAL

No chemicals, additives, animal testing, or harsh industrial processing. Just pure, natural palm oils.

COMMUNITY IMPACT

Every time you purchase Baraka’s palm 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. Baraka has helped to set up a project to convert degraded forest lands to small-holder palm operations and provided training, support and resources to help local families take them over.

BENEFITS

Our red palm oil has lots of great benefits:

- Highly nourishing for the skin and hair.

- Rich in antioxidants, like vitamin E and carotenoids, to reduce signs of ageing.

- High in beta-carotene which not only gives the oil its signature red color but can help protect the skin too.

- Contains high levels of oleic acid to deeply penetrate and repair the skin.

HOW TO USE

Red palm oil works well in both skin and hair care formulations. The red coloring of the oil can add a lovely natural color to your products, depending on how much you use. You can also use the oil directly on the skin or hair, just be aware that it can leave some color behind.
