I’m Mike, founder of Dr Shea by day, an entrepreneur by night, that’s when I get my best ideas. I live in London, a former music artist of the No1 recording band, So Solid Crew. (The good old days.) Qualified personal trainer NVQ Level 3.
After suffering years of facial scarring from ingrown hairs, I had a lack of confidence due to my appearance.
Using Shea Butter and black soap has improved my condition so much that I rarely get ingrown hairs now.
Dr Shea Started Trading Officially In 2017.
We have been buying and trying out different shea butters at least 5 years prior.
I became more conscious of what I was putting on and in my body once I had learned the causes and effects of unnatural products. I didn’t turn Vegan or Vegetarian, I just made subtle changes and started there.
I and my friend use to get raw shea from a shop in Brixton market. “The Indian man that sells all the hair & skin care products and is in every local urban demographic area”.
My mother-in-law used to bring us raw Shea from Ghana too. That’s when I was able to experiment with fragrances and textures.
It was amazing. When my children came to stay I showed them what I had been working on.
Together, that day, we made Dr Shea Tea Tree. Shea Butter bought us family memories I will never forget and will cherish forever…
From there, I went on to visit Ghana, what an experience. From the food and learning how to make black soap, to the President’s hotel, just wow…
I met No1 Rapper Sarkodie, and he believed in me and posted my products on his 3 million followers’ Instagram page. Since then we have become a No 1 preference amongst users.
