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.
