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: African Black Soap, made from palm ash, tamarind extract and plantain peel has been used in Africa for centuries to treat eczema, blemishes, oily skin, psoriasis, 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 Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of African pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra’s Egypt.

Nubian Heritage’s authentic African Black Soap combines Shea Butter’s healing and hydrating properties with the ancient medicinal properties of palm ash, plantain peel and tamarind to balance and resolve problem skin. Our deep cleansing formula aids exfoliation revealing radiant, fresh, even and healthy- looking skin.

Other Ingredients

100% vegetable soap: African black soap base, coconut oil* and/or palm oil, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter)*, avena sativa (oat) kernel meal, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, plantain extract, tocopherol (vitamin E), vegetable glycerin, mineral pigment or vegetable color, natural fragrance and/or essential oil.

Changed my life

Posted by 5556659630750807186 on Sep 25, 2016

I have used EVERYTHING. Including accutane, birth controls, prescription topicals, antibiotics, natural remedies, dead sea products.... Everything. Nothing worked, and nothing ever came close to what this product did for my skin. I physically cannot get pimples anymore, except for when I don't use this wash. If I go one night without using it, like my skin naturally does it breaks out the next morning. Because of this product my skin is now crystal clear, less shiny, less dry spots, and glowy. It is perfect now. I love this stuff, I seriously don't know how I went so long without it. (Tip; before bed, apply to your face and use a wash cloth to exfoliate and remove makeup, wash off, then wash face again and leave on for an extra 20 seconds. Works wonders)

Absolutely enjoying this!

Posted by ChristiC on Sep 25, 2016

I use this soap bar to cleanse my face twice everyday and I love it! I have an acne-prone , oily skin type, and have seen great results with this paired up with a simple skincare routine (products all purchased on iHerb). This soap has a great list of natural ingredients and really helps with calming cystic acne and breakouts. Very gentle and not drying, leaves the skin feeling soft and you get a good amount of product for the price! I have repurchased 4 times! Can't wait to try the papaya and coconut soap from Nubian heritage next!
