Baraka Palm Kernel Oil
Our palm oils are made from pure, sustainably grown and community harvested palm fruits. Palm kernel oil is cold pressed from the kernels of the oil palm’s fruit. 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
Palm oil is used in lots of different product formulations. Rich in antioxidants, it helps to nourish and protect the skin. We like using it in soaps, lotions, hair care and more. It is also high in myristic acid, an anti-inflammatory and cooling agent that makes it an excellent carrier for muscle, tendon, and ligament injury blends.

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 palm kernel oil has lots of benefits:

- Rich in antioxidants, like vitamin E, to protect the skin and reduce sign of ageing.
- High in myristic acid which is an anti-inflammatory and cooling agent.
- Softens skin and hair.
