Kombo Butter is a brownish-blue color with a thick buttery texture that easily absorbs into the skin. It provides incredible benefits for dry or irritated skin, particularly when combined with other butters (e.g., palm kernel, shea, or cocoa) and carrier oils.
Formulators love how it blends with other butters and oils making application smooth, silky and 'grease-free'.
With its naturally high levels Myristoleic and other acids and antioxidants, it was traditionally used for its anti-inflammatory, antifungal, anti-allergenic, antiseptic, anti-oxidizing, immune-stimulant, painkilling and regenerative properties. (you can Google to see what others say about it)

THE KOMBO BUTTER STORY
Learn more about the kombo tree and fruit in this video filmed in one of the forest communities in Ghana. Find out how it is a natural shade tree in cocoa forests and how our work to restore it is helping to support ecosystem biodiversity and increased income for rural women.
HANDCRAFTED KOMBO BUTTER
FROM OUR HANDS TO YOURS
Kombo butter is made from the seeds of a tropical West African tree called Pycnanthus angolensis, which is also known as the "African nutmeg". The fruits had been going to waste but now Agnes Amoah, the first farmer to sell kombo nuts to Baraka, has encouraged other women in her community to collect them too. This helps to provide a source of income and has also prevented the kombo nut trees from being cut for timber. The tall trees provide natural shade and ecosystem biodiversity for cocoa crops.
No chemicals, additives, animal testing, or harsh industrial processing. Just pure, natural wild-crafted kombo butter.
