Virgin Coconut Oil
Baraka’s traditional coconut oil is hand grown and harvested by small-holder farms in Ghana. The coconuts are transported to a food-grade facility where they are traditionally processed using techniques passed down through generations.
This traditional method heightens the flavour, creating a sweet, toasted coconutty oil that many prefer for products, cooking, and eating.
This product can also be purchased in our Baraka Recipe Kits !
How to Use
With lots of great benefits, coconut oil is a popular ingredient in product formulations. It is an excellent addition to body butters and lotions, thanks to its hydrating properties, but also works to cleanse and nourish the skin in soaps.
