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 Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of African pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra’s Egypt.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

Helps with acne

Posted by 5734180437817933058 on Oct 23, 2016

I love this soap! It has really helped to clear up my skin. It does dry my skin out a little bit but since I have oily skin I find it really pleasant.

Not Good Not Awfully Bad

Posted by LiGeorgi on Oct 23, 2016

I don't understand why this soap is so popular. Very average product. It overdrys my skin. It does not reduce acne or spots. Smells good, cleans good. That's all. It suits for body, not for face
