I was a little nervous making my first order from Akoma, as I was submitting a large order and taking a chance that the quality would be good. Submitted my order online on Monday, two weeks before Xmas ie a super-busy time. My package arrived Thursday, which is pretty good and the delivery had to be signed for, which is reassuring. I was super excited to open the package; containing several bottles of oil and a pillow pack of shea butter. The products were sealed into a sturdy plastic bag... (read more)

Užsisakiau iš šios firmos prekes pirmą kartą ir likau nemaloniai nustebinta - pašto perlaidos negavau ir jos nebūčiau gavusi, nes pavardė iškraipyta, paštininkės pagal pavardę tokio žmogaus neranda. Ėjau ne sykį į paštą, klausiau, šiaip ne taip rado. Apgailėtina, kad darbuotojai nesugeba be klaidų parašyti / nukopijuoti pavardės. Apie prekes net nerašysiu, kadangi suma nedidelė - išmečiau net nebandžius. Rizikinga kažką ant savęs tepti, neaišku iš kur ten... (read more)

After doing lots of research for organic shea butter and finding a source for real black soap, I decided to trust Akoma and started ording product in Oct 2011. I have placed additional orders and was well on my way to being a regular customer. BUT this recent incident has left me very, very disappointed. I placed an order 4/9/2012, never received the order, or any notification about my order. When I finally emailed about it, I was told it was canceled. I asked why and was told there are...

I am quite impressed with the speed of the delivery of my order. I am very excited to use my shea butter in my 1st mix. I was expecting a few packages but as soon as I smelled the aroma of the butters I knew immediately what was in the envelope. Thank you again for your quality items & I'll definitely be telling my friends about you. I love how reasonable the prices including shipping are, keep up the great work. (read more)

I used to buy a lot of natural oils and butters from Akoma skincare. Their prices were fantastic and I thought the integrity of the reviews on the website could be counted on. I stopped ordering from them when they started increasing their prices, increases of more than 50% on certain items. As a result of that I have started purchasing all oils and butters from a different online store in the UK which has excellent prices, customer service, and excellent quality products. In addition I... (read more)

Someone from a hair blog mentioned Akoma and out of curiosity, I went to the website and was amazed by the different types of natural products they had, and cheaper compared to another site I had wanted to order from. I am glad I decided to purchase from Akoma. The service is efficient, and the quality of the shea butter and black soap is excellent. I will continue to order from them from now on, as I am now moving towards natural products. Good after service too. Quite impressive. (read more)

I was introduced to Akoma by a friend and am eternally grateful to her for the recommendation. Having recently discovered the benefits of natural products for afro hair I have found the breadth of butters and oils offered by Akoma to be a lifesaver.

I entered 'African Black Soap' in a well-known search engine and "wall-ah" - there was Akoma and the rest, as they say is history! I use their Detox Soap and my skin is so clear.

I was somewhat suspicious of all the rave reviews here on review centre, suspecting that these reviews must have been written by Akoma employees (some companies do practice this devious method). I thought to myself "Surely, no company can be this good?!", so after overcoming my doubt, i placed an order for the African Black Soap. Considering it only cost a few quid and the fact that i can pay with PayPal, i wasn't that bothered should anything go wrong. I placed the order on Monday, got an... (read more)

Placed an order for Akoma's African Black Soap on Sunday and received my order on Wednesday. I received two e-mails during the process of my order; one to verify their receipt of my payment, and another the notify me once they had actually dispatched the soap. The item was sent in a padded jiffy envelope which is ideal and should be standard for items of this nature. The soap itself comes wrapped in a brown sheet inside an Akoma branded box.

Ordered Akoma Fair Trade Unrefined Shea Butter, cocoa butter, and coconut oil on Thursday evening, got everything on Saturday morning! Very happy. I didn't even mind that they had sent the cocoa butter in a plastic pack rather than a jar, which I had ordered. Coconut oil smells yummy and absorbs instantly, leaving skin super-soft. Shea butter doesn't smell quite as good, but easily absorbed and applied. Cocoa butter leaves skin nice and moisturised but you have to let it warm in your hands... (read more)
