A blend of rich, tropical ingredients high in vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, Coconut Oil and Papaya Extract nourish the skin, as Papaya’s enzymatic action gently exfoliates. Organic Shea Butter and Coconut Oil rehydrate the skin leaving it moisturized and renewed.
The coconut tree has been a vital source of food and nourishment for millions of tropical communities in South America, Assia, the Caribbean and Africa. Its oil is a valued natural skin cleanser and moisturizer. Papaya is revered in Mexico and South America for its skin rejuvenating properties. Acknoledging the ingredients’ renewing properties, our package symbolizes the sun and is typical of prints and textiles from the Caribbean which feature elaborate geometric designs made in a a reverse applique process.
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.

I've been using this soap for 2-1/2 weeks now and have had visible improvement in the clarity and texture of my skin. My enlarged pores are less noticeable and my skin just has a healthier brighter look. Anyway, I hate to sound like a lame commercial but it's definitely good soap.
Mild and smells good

Great to wash hands and body and I also do use it like shaving foam. Better than almost all shaving foams what you can find in supermarket!

I received what seems to be a new version of this soap. Ingredient list has been changed. However, the website hasn't been updated to reflect this change. Had I known, I wouldn't have made the order...
Fantastic soap! Rich lather and clean rinsing.

The only issue that I have with this product is that they use Palm Oil in the production. The use of palm oil in products is contributing to the destruction of the jungle worldwide. I won't be able to buy it again until they stop using palm.
Doesn't smell like coconut and very rough surface
