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 Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of African pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra’s Egypt.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.

Love the scent!

Posted by catsociety on Dec 06, 2016

It smells sweet, gives off a really nice scent after a shower. Feels squeaky clean, not sure about it's wondrous benefits yet but I like it, it's very affordable and a great soap! I have normal-oily skin so it works well for me, if you have dry or sensitive skin, you might need to moisturize more after using this as it's slightly drying.

I love this soap! It smells like licorice mixed with coconut and I can't stop smelling it. I use this everyday and has lasted 1 month and has helped with clearing my acne. It also is very gentle on the face.
