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 long 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 with Palm Ash, Tamarind Extract and Plantain Peel has been used in Africa for centuries to minimize the appearance of skin blemishes 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 Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of African pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra’s Egypt.

Iherb, please keep this in stock! It was on backorder for me, took a few weeks to come in, but it was worth it. Cleared by skin up (from stubborn breakouts) in just about a day. Leaves my skin feeling smooth, and the sultry fragrance lasts on my skin but is not overwhelming. It is not irritating to my facial skin, even if I scrub it thoroughly. Never have I been this impressed with a soap. A little bit can go a long way. The 'scrub' beads seem to be for decor more than exfoliation though, so don't count on it for that, though the texture feels nice.
This product is NOTHING like the African Black Soap bar that it originates from. Unlike the seemingly similar African Black Soap bar, this body wash smells like a mixture of baby powder and play-dough. You have been warned. Also, for those with sensitive skin, this product is a no-go because for some stupid reason they added salycilic ACID which only makes my skin red and irritated. I was so disgusted by this body wash that i threw it in the garbage can immediately. what a waste of ten dollars. Nubian Heritage, you're doing it wrong!

I love this product. It's gentle to the skin, and has cleared up my body acne and nourished my acne scars. My skin is sensitive to everything, but not this product. Most people complain about the scent. At first, it was a bit strong, but it brings me aromatic benefits now and calms me down. I will say though that it the pores on my face. I do the oil cleansing method, so I wouldn't suggest using this on your face if you do too.

This is the first black soap product i have ever tried and i am not sure what is the original black soap like... there are a few reviews here that commented on the scent of the product being bad and unbearable but i think otherwise. I like how there's a mild lingering vanilla musk kind of scent after shower. So if you dont like the smell of vanilla and musk... then this is not the product for you. Not so sure yet about it's antiseptic properties as i just started using. It lathers well and does not dry skin out.
