Before Sheabutter Cottage, I hadn’t heard nor tried any unrefined oils.

Ms Akua’s website allows you to experiment with skincare products in their natural state. I love and use most of her oils.

Advantages: I add shea oil, to the shea butter mixture before whipping, it adds a nice shine, and texture to it. Plus, it's also great for your cuticles.

I used a lot of castor oils from different brands but I have never experienced quick and great results like I did with Shebutter Cottage’s castor oil!

I have been using this oil for a month and I can see a huge difference with my hair but especially with my edges. I have been massaging my edges for a month now and the results are REAL! Thank you Sheabutter Cottage for organic and amazing quality products! This oil was a part of my very first order but I will undoubtedly become a loyal customer!

I don't think I could exaggerate how good this is.
I have okay skin, but I am prone to break outs.

In the six months of using this daily my skin has definitely improved. I get maybe 1 spot at a time instead of everywhere, my skin looks clearer and in better condition, and I no longer have dry patches.

Thoroughly recommend!!

You guys need this butter in arsenal of hair care it has a film coating that acts a protective coating, its very light and soft and melts in your hand but it does the job.

Very good. Very happy with this purchase! Wish there was a bigger size! Had an acne breakout and used this and ALL the spots reduced/ were gone the NEXT DAY!!! amazing stuff!

Advantages: Use in combination with the Shea butter for a luxurious bathing experience. Highly recommended

Disadvantages: Can be drying.
Leaves marks in the bath. Will need to clean surfaces it comes in contact with frequently
But that's the same for all black soaps

It is a very creamy texture...a little goes a long way.

Saw instant results on my visible stretch marks within 1 week because I use it 2x daily.

My skin feels very nourished. My stretch marks look more faded. I am happy for that.
Would definitely buy again or gift to a friend.

I bought the unrefined Shea butter and African mesh sponge to see how I got on and it’s been life changing.

The Shea butter is beautiful and I felt very proud of my whipping skills ☺️ (did a bit of research) My skin has never looked or felt better. It is so wonderful to know I am putting something so pure on my skin and seeing how it nourishes it so wonderfully.

I then read somewhere about putting it on your hair and my hair has just loved it and soaked it up without looking greasy and it is not heavy at all - it’s also made it so much easier to blow dry and it’s softer than ever.

I then ordered two more refill packs of shea butter and have whipped them with an essential oil blend called woman’s balance and will be giving it to various friends as little gift jars because sometimes woman need to look after each other even in a small way. I want to share the Shea butter joy!

Advantages: What great products, fantastic service, speedy delivery and all round experience. Thank you

I bought the unrefined Shea butter and African mesh sponge to see how I got on and it’s been life changing.

The mesh sponge has allowed me to properly exfoliate without pulling an arm/neck muscle trying to reach my middle back and is so easy to wash and dry it’s an absolute pleasure.

I purchase from Shea Butter Cottage often and one of my favorite products by far is the Serwaa Clay Shampoo; it is clarifying, volumizing and strengthens my hair.

I recommend this product to all of my family and friends and truly understand why Shea Butter Cottage has won so many awards.

I will forever be a loyal customer!
Nathalie about  PAPAYA SOAP : PAWPAW SOAP:
Sep 12, 2020
Verified buyer.
I’ve only just started using this soap for TWO days, and I had to come on here to review it because it’s THAT good! After two usages, the blemishes and dark spots around my mouth which I’ve had for a long time (I think it could’ve been perioral dermatitis) are disappearing in front of my very eyes! And if any spots do appear, they don’t last more than a day. I use argan oil to moisturise my face after using the papaya soap, and my skin is left feeling so soft and rejuvenated and I wake up with moisturised and soft skin in the morning.
Truly can’t recommend it enough, thank you so much Akua and your lovely team back in Ghana for making such wonderful products!

Such a lovely soap, it smells so wonderful and orangey and feels so soft on the skin! It’s not drying and works great with the mesh sponge which is sold on here too!

This product has changed my skin and hair care routine - I now use nothing else on my hair and skin apart from cleansing. I will undoubtedly use this for the rest of my life (seriously).
My mum, sister & dad now use the shea butter too since they noticed such a glow, radiance and healthy look to my skin since using it. It is very good value & I whip it myself from the raw form its sold in (you can also buy it whipped on this website).

SheaButter Cottage is a wonderful brand that I admire for its ethical values, wholesomeness, and sustainability. I think its especially great that they work directly with the women in Ghana who make the shea butter and emphasise the importance on their website of paying them fairly.

I could honestly go on forever about this product.... I cant stop telling people about it.

Advantages: natural, in my opinion- it is the only moisturising agent I need for my skin and hair.
Acts as a moisturiser, oil, balm, serum, mask.
When used sparingly & left to sink it it works AMAZINGLY under makeup - creates such a soft silky base.

Disadvantages: Absolutely nothing

I have taken this as tea for the last two weeks and my night sleep has been undisturbed.

Advantages: Some say it opens the bowels and makes one frequent the toilet. I am yet to experience that.
I use a full tea spoon for my tea which I really enjoy.

Disadvantages: Just the dark colour

So my natural hair was so dry, even after a wash it felt like plastic.
Any products I used on it just sat on the hair. So I was looking for a product to help deep condition my hair, make it soft and to be able to absorb the other products I use.
Hmmm, I'm glad to have come across the cocoa+marula bar. It has helped condition my plastic hair so well. I mean any leave in conditioners and other products I use after treatment with the bar has been absorbed into my hair. The products are not sitting on my hair just getting wasted.
My hair is loving the treatment, it's feeling healthier, bouncier and my coils are so well defined now. I'm just loving my natural hair now. So thank you for this product, definitely worth the money and I must say cost the same as getting a treatment from my hairdresser but perhaps this has better benefits. I've done 2 treatments so far and the results are fantastic.
Definitely buying more and I'm looking forward to trying the Serwaa Clay and other products.

This is a beautiful hair oil!!

I have used it on my scalp, in my LCO method and mixed in with my deep conditioners for myself and my mum (who also loves it).
It leaves both my scalp and hair very moisturised.

Wholeheartedly would recommend to anyone thinking of buying the hair oil.
