An Honorable Brand, Nubian Heritage
The story of how Nubian Heritage developed into a popular skin care line available in Ulta stores and Ulta.com is a fascinating one! The team who started the company started out as street vendors in Harlem. Being passionate and close to their community, their desire was to bring the healing traditions of African Black Soap to those within the community. This was back in 1991 and the team has been at it ever since. Only they have significantly expanded their line to offer products with different ingredients and healing properties. Today, African Black Soap remains within the collection but there are also many other bath, hair, and skin care products within each line that are available at Ulta. It’s quite a success story!
Nubian Heritage combines traditional healing practices, cultural wisdom, and indigenous ingredients to formulate modern natural solutions that are in high demand today. Their products are very reasonably priced and have received consistently great reviews from users. Nubian Heritage sources and understands ingredients from all over the world including Black Seed Oil, Buriti Oil, Haitian Vetiver, Neem Oil, Avocado Butter, and so much more! The organization is committed to reducing poverty in areas that they source ingredients for their products. They invest in women’s cooperatives in Ghana and purchase their products. Nubian Heritage also helps them develop self-sustaining businesses. Its companies like this who are committed and care about people around the world that I want to support and buy products from.
Nubian Heritage Products
Nubian Heritage has a wide array of products ranging from skin care, bath products, and hair care. Each of the beautiful Nubian Heritage formulas target different skin and hair needs. The different lines have a variety of products available to choose from. When Nubian Heritage approached me and offered me to try and share my opinion on their products with you, I had a very difficult time selecting the products I wanted to try. Honestly, everything was intriguing and the scents of the products are beautiful! I finally decided on the African Black Soap because it represented the beginnings of Nubian Heritage, and it helps solve a skin problem that I have living in Phoenix.
Nubian Heritage products do not contain sulfates, parabens, phthalates, paraffin, gluten, propylene glycol, DEA, silicones, mineral oil, petroleum, triclosan, synthetic fragrance or artificial colors. The brand is also cruelty-free. Natural and organic ingredients are used in the Nubian Heritage products.
My Pick: African Black Soap Products
The African Black Soap is gentle on the skin and removes bacteria, excess oil, and does not dry or irritate skin. It is formulated with aloe vera, oats, and vitamin E to help soothe acne-prone skin. The African Black Soap is made with palm ash, tamarind extract, and plantain peel. These ingredients have been used in Africa for centuries to help control skin blemishes. The aloe vera and oats are soothing to the skin and the oats offer a mild exfoliating effect.
This product line was of particular interest to me because, living in Arizona, it’s hard to control acne due to the heat which causes sweating just about everywhere on your body! It’s easy to develop breakouts on your back, underarms, and well…. even your behind! As the weather warms up, I’m always looking for ways to avoid acne on my body, as is my husband. I decided to try the African Black Bar Soap for my face and the Black African Body Wash for my body. This product line is suitable for all skin types, including oily and sensitive skin.
Can I just say the product smells absolutely incredible! I honestly don’t know how to describe it but it’s a beautiful scent and considering there are no artificial fragrances added to the product, the scent comes from the natural ingredients. It’s mildly sweet yet subtle and soft. It’s definitely suitable for both men and women and it’s incredibly refreshing. I truly love the way this product smells.
The bar soap provides a nice lather and rinses off easily leaving skin feeling clean and soft. There is no dryness, residue, or irritation that is caused from using the soap. The body wash is an absolute delight. It contains Dead Sea Salt and jojoba beads to gently exfoliate the skin and the aloe vera and oats in the formula help soothe skin. The African Black Soap products have a high concentration of shea butter, which leaves skin moisturized and soft. The shea butter is sourced from a cooperative in Ghana so you can really feel good and responsible when using these products.
