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Heritage: Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of African pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra's Egypt.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.
Overwhelming smell & drying

It blows my mind why this soap has such a high rate. The smell is so overwhelming that it makes me nauseous, and I don't like the smell. The whole bathroom even smells. It is just as strong as a chemical toilet cleaner. I decided to wash only my hands with it and it turned out to be so drying that I don't use it anymore. ( I live in a hot & dry climate here) What I did like was that it is pretty hard, so it keeps its shape and goes a long way. I preferred One with Nature soap (millet & shea butter). The scent is mild and the soap is soft. What I didn't like was that it is so soft that it 'melts" quickly. It tried soap, but now I go back to baking soda and liquid cleansers/ oil to clean my skin.

I'm using it for two weeks and it's perfect. My skin feels clean and fresh after use. The scent is very nice. It doesn't cause breakout's on my skin.

I haven't open the package yet but it smells very good! Also, I have a positive experience from other soaps this company selling like ' Nubian Heritage, African Black Soap Bar' which I ordered with this one, is an excellent soap bar.
Not your ordinary soap, better

This soap lathers really well and smells amazing. So amazing that I wish I could duplicate the smell for other products. I don't smell the fragrance on my skin once I'm dry, but it is pleasant aromatherapy while bathing. Skin doesn't feel as dried out as when I use other soaps. Nice size bar too. Tip: Dry the soap bar off after each use to extend the life of the soap.
