Raw Shea Butter Soap With Soy Milk & Oils of Frankincense & Myrrh
Heritage: Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of African pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra's Egypt. Shea Butter is enriched with essential fatty acids which moisturize and soften skin. Frankincense, known for its toning and anti-aging properties, also has aromatherapeutic benefits. Myrrh can be dated back to an Ebers papyrus (circa 1580 BC) recipe for a facial mask.
Our traditional Raw Shea Butter Soap is rich in essential vitamins and nourishing ingredients, including Vitamin E, soy milk and cocoa butter, infused with a special essential oil blend of Frankincense, Myrrh, Cardamom, Ginger and Black Pepper, which promotes an aromatic experience.
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.
100% Vegetable Soap: raw butyrospermum parkii (shea butter)*, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter*, coconut oil*, and/or palm oil, soy milk, tocopherol (vitamin E), extracts of frankincense and myrrh, vegetable glycerin, essential oil blend, mineral pigment or vegetable color

This is a lovely scented soap and is very long lasting too. I have been using it everyday now for many weeks. One easy little trick to keep the soap lasting even longer is to push the underside of a plastic milk bottle lid into the underside of the soap. This keeps the soap off the counter top and lets it dry underneath.
We tried this soap because of our cold CT winters and our aging (!!) dry skin, and there are just so many things to like about it. First, it completely changed our skin (and it's not like we had been using Dial or some other harsh commercial soap.) The smell is incredible, almost makes our whole bathroom smell good (it's a small bathroom). Didn't like Nubian's black one nearly as much - this one is the best - and iherb's price is also the best.
Love this Soap!

I've only been using it a week and I can feel a remarkable difference! I have skin as dry as a dessert --- itchy, sore, uncomfortable. It's beginning to mellow a lot! I'm encouraged!

Not overpowering, wonderful and natural. Leaves skin softer, and I love that it has all natural ingredients.

The Company has changed the package design as well as the INGREDIENTS of this soap, making it less pure and simple like it used to. New ingredients for everyone's reference:- Sodium Palmate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Water, Glycerin (Vegetable), Fragrance (Essential Oil Blend), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Sodium Gluconate, Palm Acid, Sodium Chloride, Palm Kernal Acid, Soy Milk, Iron Oxides (CI 77492), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77499), Boswellia Carterii Resin Extract, Commiphora Myrrha Extract, Honey Extract. Not gonna give high ratings whether or not it has the same benefits / extra goodies, since customers are not being notified on the changes, which in turns defied our right to know.
