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 own products, still uses fair trade and organic ingredients and still invests in community commerce.


For centuries, African Black Soap, made with Palm Ash, Tamarind Extract and Plantain Peel has been used in Africa to cleanse and care for the skin. Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of African pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra’s Egypt. Complementing the ingredients’ detoxifying properties, our package pattern symbolizes purity and commemorates the strong community identity textiles have in Africa with each community having their own unique designs.

Recommended for Dry Skin

Posted by 5513585673262784451 on Apr 30, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I have a very dry skin especially on my legs. Tried several other lotions but they even made my skin drier until I found this product. This lotion makes my skin supple, my dry patches have gone. But the only problem is, the lotion is very thick (more like whip cream texture. Not runny as any other lotion) You need to have strong arms to squeeze the product from the bottle. If they change the packaging (maybe they should put it in jar) I'll definitely give this product 5 stars!

Thanks for your feedback!

Smooth and easy to absorb

I love this label of products but I don't recognise the smell anymore. Something is different. The texture of the lotion is not so thick as it was before, wich is good but I miss the wonderful smell.

Thanks for your feedback!

It smells great but very difficult to put it out of the bottle. It's like butter

Thanks for your feedback!

They altered the ingredients and the packaging.

Just received the new packaging. This used to be my holy grail and the only lotion I've been using for over a year. They removed the salicylic acid from the ingredients list which helped me so much to keep my body skin clear, smooth ingrown hairs and keep my back and chest acne at bay. I'm really disappointed.

Thanks for your feedback!

Great for desert dwellers

Excellent moisturizer. Very thick but absorbs easily. Scent is not overpowering. The only problem is the difficulty in getting product out of the bottle. Too thick to squeeze out so I finally squeezed it without the cap into a flat round jar. Fix the packaging please! But do not thin out the product.
