Nubian Heritage is the brainchild of two New York street vendors. In 1992, fresh out of college 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 it 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 Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of African pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra’s Egypt.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 patterns symbolizes purity and commemorates the strong community identity that textiles have in Africa with each community having their own unique designs.
