GOOD FOR YOU, GOOD FOR THE WOMEN WHO MAKE IT, GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.

ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

Baraka Shea Butter believes that we are in a climate crisis and work to be effective stewards of the environment. We try to organize our work, our activities and our lifestyles to tread as softly as we can on our planet.

Taking care of the planet is important to us. We don’t do this out of a sense of obligation, or because we are forced. We do it because we believe it is smart business in so many ways.


  • WASTE NOT

    We take great care and strategically plan to ensure that nothing is wasted when making Baraka Shea Butter. The hardworking women who make the shea butter carefully work with any remaining residue and material so it can be reused for other purposes.

  • SHEA NUTS SHELLS FOR FUEL

    Preparing shea nuts (seeds) for making shea butter includes removing the husks. These husks are not just discarded but are reused as fuel for cooking, and even for making the next batch of handcrafted shea butter.

  • SHEA TREE REGENERATION

    Shea trees grow wild and regenerate naturally but they take several years before they start fruiting and producing the delicious fruit and the seed that makes our shea butter. So how do we help them? Baraka’s research estimates that at least 85% of the shea seeds that fall from the trees are left unpicked and are available to germinate.

  • SHEA TREE CONSERVATION

    Baraka and its founders have been actively involved in the conservation of Ghana’s fragile savannah for years. Lack of economic options often forces families to cut down shea trees and make charcoal for cooking (shea is known to produce the best hardwoods). Baraka is involved in education and awareness campaigns and, more importantly, every kilogram of pure, handmade Baraka Shea Butter purchased puts money into the hands of hardworking women and families and incentivizes them to preserve the shea trees.
