Humble Beginnings

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 fair trade ingredients. Today Nubian Heritage offers 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 ingredients and still invests in community commerce.



For centuries, African Black Soap has been used in Africa to cleanse and care for the skin. Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of Africa pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra's Egypt.
