100% Organic Raw Shea Butter, in its purest form, is infused with Frankincense and Myrrh Extract to create this ultra-moisturizing and luxurious blend. Our Shea Butter helps to nourish and rejuvenate skin, while helping to minimize the appearance of skin imperfections in this total body balm.
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, uses fair trade and organic ingredients and still invests in community commerce.
Butyrospermum parkii (shea butter)*, extract of frankincense and myrrh, tocopherol (vitamin E), essential oil blend

I have, used this product for about five years. I loved the scent and that it went on smoothly if one warmed it in their hand. It has been my sunscreen and every other kind of lotion I used to use. In the last year the quality has gone in the toilet. The scent is almost negligible, the consistency has changed, the product has lost its pale amber color, when one rubs on it had granules in it that don't dissolve. I have gone to other retail outlets to no avail, their product has the same issues. My sis-n-law lives elsewhere and she is having the same issues, as is my neighbor. I have written to the company and have not received any explanation of why the product is like it is now. My vote currently is DON'T BUY IT. The price has risen steadily and the quality has dropped with these price hikes. Someone is asleep and the helm.
Think this is the most extrodinary perfume. Lingers on the skin and is simply heavenly i think, Product you can tell is truly natural you have to be prepared to dig small amounts out of jar and warm between your hands to rub over your body. But worth every bit of effort. I love the product and will buy more. Does leave my skin feeling soft. Will buy again and more of this brand. Melbourne, Australia
First time experience, definitely will re-order very soon.

This is a first time experience on "RAW SHEA BUTTER infused with FRANKINCENSE & MYRRH". According on packing said "Hydrating, Revitalizing & Smoothing" once received can't wait to open & try it on my knee & elbow. First feeling on this product, it was solid and hard but very light. As I never use Raw Shea butter before then I've think of the way how to use coconut oil. I dig out some Raw Shea butter from container and rub it on my hand until melted (only take 1-2 seconds) then apply on my knee and elbow. It was absorbed very fast (especially I am a dry & allergy skin issue). No sticky sense after use. I will re-order very soon.

I read a lot of mixed reviews over this product but decided to give it a try. I'm afraid some reviews put it right - it's not a good product. First of all, I got mine in two layers - upper white and greasy and lover yellowish and greasy. I believe it's due to wrong storing that it got spoiled in some way. Secondly, the smell is a bit off as well as if the fat got rancid. Finally, it doesn't do my skin better but my bed clothes dirty in greasy stains. I will not buy again.

not bad moisturizer but it caused a mess when I apply it. I don't know if there is a certain way to apply it. I like the smell.
