Humble Beginnings

Nubian Heritage is the brainchild of two New York street vendors. In 1992, fresh out of college and without jobs, Rich and Nyema embarked on a mission to produce luxurious natural products from traditional African recipes with organic and fair trade ingredients. Today Nubian Heritage offers hundreds of culturally authentic natural products inspired by global ancient healing philosophies. Although Nubian Heritage products are no longer made in bath tubs, little else has changed; the company still makes its products itself, still uses fair trade and organic ingredients and still invests in community commerce.

Heritage: African Black Soap, made from palm ash, tamarind extract and plantain peel has been used in Africa for centuries to treat eczema, blemishes, oily skin, psoriasis, and other skin ailments. Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of African pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra’s Egypt.

Nubian Heritage’s authentic African Black Soap combines Shea Butter’s healing and hydrating properties with the ancient medicinal properties of palm ash, plantain peel and tamarind to balance and resolve problem skin. Our deep cleansing formula aids exfoliation revealing radiant, fresh, even and healthy- looking skin.

Other Ingredients

100% vegetable soap: African black soap base, coconut oil* and/or palm oil, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter)*, avena sativa (oat) kernel meal, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, plantain extract, tocopherol (vitamin E), vegetable glycerin, mineral pigment or vegetable color, natural fragrance and/or essential oil.

Nice soap

Only downside is it is slightly drying, so ensure using a moisturiser after application

Great for acne and oily skin

Posted by 4875917162967200369 on Jan 20, 2017

This really helped me! I have acne scars and oily skin on my back and this got me rid of it. Nevertheless, if you have very dry skin is might be little too harsh. I tried to wash my face with this, but it caused serious dryness. So this is not for you if you have dry or normal skin.

On the fence...

Posted by 4692147384274872464 on Jan 19, 2017

I don't really know what to say about this soap. I read a lot of reviews that it was helpful for acne, and I can't say that I agree. I will give it more time, but while skin feels clean, it's very drying and I have seen no improvement on acne. I'll give it another 2 weeks or so, but will probably not order again.
