A non-greasy and fast-absorbing lotion rich in unrefined African Shea Butter, clinically proven to retain moisture and improve skin elasticity.
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Heritage: Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of African pharmacology, dates back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra's Egypt. Frankincense, known for its toning and anti-aging properties, also has aroma therapeutic benefits promoting mental strength, clarity and balance. Myrrh can be dated back to an Ebers papyrus (circa 1580 BC) recipe for a facial mask.
Use: Daily use will result in firmer, healthier skin.

I have been using this for awhile and my husband and I both like its moisturizing ability and the fragrance very much. He had a itchy spot on his back and it's gone. We will continue to use this product. Thank you.
I have eczema on my legs, and its been healing pretty well. I've been applying this gorgeous and with a scent to die for lotion on my legs. The scars are fading though i suppose it will take some time for it to fully fade. I've been applying it to the other parts of my body and its really good that it absorbs well and my skin seems so much more moisturized and firm. It really works and i really love the texture of it, the smell might not be for everyone, but for me who really hates the smell of perfume, i find it nice.^^

The smell is fantastic and the moisturizing is wonderful. I love all Nubian Heritage products that I've tried, but this is my favorite.
Très bon lait pour le corps

Mais je ne mets que 4 étoiles car l'odeur est quand même très présente même si elle n'est pas désagréable. Elle reste toute la journée. Sinon très efficace sur la peau sèche en hiver. Je pense tester d'autres laits de cette marque et peut-être qu'un autre parfum me correspondra plus.
LOVE IT !
