The Benefit of Healthy Skin

We’ve mastered natural ingredients from around the world, such as Black Seed Oil, Buriti Oil, Haitian Vetiver, Tamanu Oil, Mango Butter, Raw Shea Butter, Frankincense, Papaya Extract, Myrrh, Neem Oil, Lemongrass, Chai Tea, Avocado Butter, Tea Tree Oil and many more.

Every day, we provide our community with education and discovery opportunities while also providing modern interpretations of time-tested and traditional wellness solutions. Our products are carefully formulated using raw materials in culturally authentic ways to harness the maximum benefits of the ingredients.

The skin is our largest organ and studies show approximately 60% of what we put on our skin gets absorbed. By properly caring for the skin, and maintaining homeostasis, we impact the health, texture, strength and beauty of the skin. Our products provide skin care for all types of skin. For example, we recommend our Infused Butters for rough dry areas like heels, knees, elbows and hands especially during the winter. Sensitive skin will benefit from our Massage Oil and our Body Lotion in our Goat’s Milk & Chai Collection formulated for delicate and sensitive skin. If problem skin is a concern, our African Black Soap Collection is recommended.

Because we love our skin and yours and want the very best for it, we pride ourselves on creating safe, non-irritating and gentle products to cleanse, treat and moisturize. Since our beginning as street vendors in Harlem we've been guided by our customers' demands for wellness products incorporating their own healing practices. Nubian Heritage ingredients and inspiration come from around the globe. We listen to our community and research rare ingredients, and blend them into our products in culturally authentic ways, to preserve their efficacy and rich heritage. The ingredients are used as they've been for centuries for maximum benefits, and re-mixed into modern wellness solutions for skin and hair.


What's not in our product is just as important as what is. For over 23 years, we've been proud to manufacture products without potentially harmful synthetic ingredients that may have an impact on our health and our environment. Nubian Heritage products do not contain Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates, Paraffin, Gluten, Propylene Glycol, DEA, Silicones, Mineral Oil, Petroleum, Triclosan, Synthetic Fragrance or Artificial Color. The brand is cruelty-free and doesn't test on animals.
