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 Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of African pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra’s Egypt.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.

*Certified Organic Ingredient

Esperaba mucho más...

Compré este jabón porque había visto muy buenas reseñas al respecto de lo limpia que dejaba la piel, pero al menos en mi caso el resultado no ha sido así, sí que deja una sensación agradable en la piel pero no noto que limpia como dicen otras compradoras, por menos precio he probado jabones que limpian mucho más, no creo q lo vuelva a comprar.

I really wanted to like this soap, but it didn't deliver for me. After use my skin got a bit dry and flaky(very sensitive skin).
