Baraka Red Palm Oil
Our palm oils are made from pure, sustainably grown and community harvested palm fruits. Red palm oil is made from the fruit of the oil palm tree. The fruit is processed in a modern Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certified facility and Baraka is a Registered RSPO Supply Chain Associate. To become RSPO certified, the palm oil production must meet stringent sustainability criteria.
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.

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