heritage

Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of African pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra’s Egypt. Shea Butter is rich in essential fatty acids, which moisturize and soften skin. Frankincense, known for it’s toning and anti-aging properties, also has aromatherapy benefits. Myrrh can be dated back to an Ebers papyrus (circa 1580) recipe for a facial mask.

Raw Shea Butter Body Lotion is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The BEST, most effective lotion I've ever used I absolutely love this lotion - it is all about the shea butter. I have extremely dry skin and this lotion is the only one that really seems to work. And a bonus is that it smells wonderful. My only complaint is the bottle is not good for application. I would recommend they switch to using a tub (like they have for the 100% raw shea butter). This would make application and usage much more friendly with less waste. I often use a knife to cut open the bottle when it gets low - and I get another 20% of lotion out of the bottle this way. But it is not an ideal solution. Please Nubian - switch to a tub version!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best I have extremely dry skin and this lotion is by far the best product I've found for it. Yes, it's very thick and viscous, but that's what makes it so moisturizing. To get it out of the bottle, I fold a washcloth and place it on the countertop, and then I remove the lid and hit the top of the bottle a couple of times on the washcloth (like a ketchup bottle) and then you can squeeze it onto your hand easily. It's really not a big deal and so well worth this creamy, rich lotion. It also absorbs quickly into the skin and smells amazing. I hope NH never changes the formula of this lotion because I've not found anything else that works as good!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Changed Formulation - Lower Quality The company changed the formulation of this product. It is no longer as high quality. No longer has Shea Butter as the #1 ingredient, Aloe Juice is now the most abundant ingredient, now full of chemicals, fillers, and thickeners instead of naturally thick with simple ingredients. The list of ingredients listed above it no longer accurate. Aloe Juice, Caprylic/Capric triglyceride, Stearate this and Stearate that now dominates the ingredients. In the Q/A section below they address some people with questions about this change by claiming its just a label change and choose their words carefully to say the "effectiveness and benefit" are the same, implying its the same formula, implying its the same product with just a new label but its not. It still has shea butter, and the other featured ingredients, they just take second fiddle to junk. Its gone full corporate chemical lotion. Too bad, was good while it lasted, onto the next brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The body lotion is truly a wonderful product. I have done extensive research on body lotions. Nubian Heritage Body Lotion is the only lotion I have found that I can feel completely comfortable in using on my skin. Natural ingredients that are not going to harm my health. I love Raw Shear Butter in their line of body lotions the best. As other reviewers have said, it is hard to get it out of the bottle. But it's worth it. I gently pound the capped bottle (cap side down) on a padded surface and then put the lotion in a jar. Easy. I also love Nubian Heritage's Community Commerce and their Homecoming Farm. It's nice to purchase a product where the makers are passionate and caring about helping their customers as well as supporting their supply chain.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This lotion has some poor ingredients. I was looking forward to trying your Raw Shea Butter Body Lotion until I noticed the Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower (and) Lonicera Japonica (Japanese Honeysuckle) Flower Extract in the ingredients.These are proven parabens. The African Black Soap Lotion is good. However, I've noticed the ingredient changes on the new label.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is a great lotion, deserves 5 stars, but.... It's impossible to get it out of the bottle. It's too thick for a bottle!!!
Date published: 2016-07-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent lotion, not consumer friendly dispensing The lotion is excellent. Have used various ones, prefer this but the issue is packaging/dispensing which represents the 4 stars as opposed to 5, did consider 3 stars. It is most difficult to get out of the contain! Soft tube or wide mouth jar would be much easier. It shouldn't need to be cut open to apply or waste approximately a cup of lotion otherwise. Lotion is a luxury and shouldn't be a frustration with dispensing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hydrating and pleasant scent! It is very difficult to get the lotion out of the bottle. I think it is a design issue. Otherwise, I love how it feels and smells!

Is the raw shea butter lotion the original? I have bought some that had chemicals in it and smelled bad

Asked by: kijack309
Hi Kijack309, Thank you for reaching out to us. We do apologize for your inconvenience. What has changed is our label… not the performance or benefit of the products themselves. We are in the process of updating our labels to be INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) compliant which changes the ingredient list to items that may sound scary. In order to be considered for third party certifications and programs, for example being able to label our soaps Rainforest Alliance certified or RSPO certified, we have to comply with INCI. A byproduct of this change is the elimination of the origin and common names of our ingredients. A few examples, where we used to be able to label Tea Tree Oil as Tea Tree oil, we now list Melaleuca Alternifolia Leaf Oil. In the case of Sweet Birch Oil, INCI compliance requires Sweet Birch Oil be listed as Methyl Salicylate. Also, 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.

Why is Natures Way in Stratford and Amazon selling a different looking lotion? Did Nubian Heritage change the picture of the labeling or formula for the raw Shea butter with soy milk, frankincense and myrrh? The ingredients are changed and different.

Why have you changed and ADDED so many more ingredients? Shea was first ingred (reason for purchase) and now it is fourth in line. Why tamper with perfection. I am truly disappointed!!! Please respond with reason.

I purchased a Bottle in Dec., at an Open-Air Market, but before ordering I decided to read the Reviews. Is it true, as one Customer wrote, that you have changed the Ingredients of this product?
