Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formula is making me sad I have been using this lotion for years. I know people have complained that it can be difficult to get out of the bottle, but I stored mine upside down and even cut open the bottles at the end to get the stuff that just wouldn't come out because the product was SO AMAZING that I didn't care...and that thickness was part of it's moisturizing magic, IMO. I just got a bottle of the new label/new product and it's TERRIBLE. So thin (OK, the thick lotion "problem" was solved I guess?), nowhere near as luxurious, just feels like I'm putting nothing on my body. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring the old formula back...I don't want to have to find a new lotion, your scents are the BEST, I love the company. Pretty please????

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 1 out of 5 by from Once a happy/repeat customer, but now... I used to love this product and purchase it faithfully. I go through two bottles a month. I love that the company is Black-owned, and I even go out of my way to purchase this product from local Black retailers. This last bottle that I bought, however, will be my last time purchasing this product. Unfortunately, with the new label came a new product. And although Nubian Heritage touts that they have just 'changed the label...not the performance', the product has definitely diminished in quality and ultimately - effectiveness. I noticed this change immediately after applying the lotion. The once thick and rich consistency has now been demoted to a watery base that does not offer the same moisturization as the original product. This is very disappointing. Not only is the change evident when applying the product, but it's also quite evident when comparing the list of ingredients from the original label to the new label (I have provided the pictures for your review). On the original label (black), the first ingredient is Shea Butter, and the product only consists of about 14 ingredients. However, on the new label (white), the first ingredient is - none other than - water, and the product consists of more than 25 ingredients! This is more than just 'a label change', it is indeed a product change. Nubian Heritage, please bring back the rich, thick, consistent product for which you have been known and loved! Until then, I will be looking for another product. :( -Disappointed Customer

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed the formula was changed & cheapened I had been using this lotion for years. I loved the rich creaminess, light scent, and that the 1st ingredients was shea butter. Sad that the formula has now changed and is lighter, watered down and way more fragrant (not in a good way). Do not recommended and will not purchase again from Nubian.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formulation has left me looking for new lotion I used to buy this lotion 3 and 4 bottles at a time. Gave it as gifts. Recommended it to everyone. Now that the formulation has changed, I can't use it at all. It has a different texture, different smell, and leaves my skin with a slight itching and burning sensation. BRING THE OLD FORMULA BACK! I would gladly pay more for the old formulation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This used to be a superior product, no more though I've been using this lotion for over 3 years consistently. It WAS my favourite until they changed the formulation. Now the entire consistency of the lotion has been compromised and it's impossible to get it out of the bottle. Also, they have added a ton of new ingredients making it less natural. I wish they cared more about making a superior quality product then making higher margins.

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intoxicating! The fragrance of this body lotion is heavenly! The thick, rich lotion and hydrating shea butter are wonderful at relieving my extremely dry skin, and it leaves me smelling wonderful. I love that the ingredients are all natural so there is nothing here to irritate my sensitive skin that is prone to rashes. Although the lotion is quite thick, it goes on easily and absorbs quickly. I've tried nearly every lotion over the years, and while they make all sorts of claims that don't materialize, this is one that works to keep your skin soft. It's definitely my new favorite. In addition, the customer service I received from the website was excellent: fast shipping, careful packaging, and a discount that really helped seal the deal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Iffy I came across this lotion on clearance at target and absolutely fall in love with it! When I went to purchase more it was discontinued from the store so here I am looking to purchase more but after reading all the upsetting reviews I’m iffy??? My bottle was a white label and it was amazing but other reviews are saying otherwise... it’s very disappointing when you find something that works and a company starts diluting the product for profit.. So based on the labeling being the same as I purchased I’m going to try it again and hope this isn’t the case.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So Disappointed I loved this lotion and have been using it for a few years. I just ordered some new bottles of the lotion and body wash and am so disappointed. They changed the formula. Please bring back your original formula. I'm going to have to change products for now as it's not near the quality that it was.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formula is garbage New formula seems to not even have shea butter and is very watery. Stings the skin when you apply it and very disappointed to see it changed. We had used regularly the soap, body lotion and body wash in our household. Our 3.5 year old son now screams when we apply this to his skin which was a good solution for his eczema when it used to work great. Very disappointed to have ordered another 3 bottles recently - I came to the website looking for a recall notice it is that bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Raw Shea Butter Lotion Review Although I mainly use oils for moisturizing, when I need something lighter- this lotion is the only thing I use! Smell is fantastic and I love its absorption. One thing I am sad about is that I just picked up a new bottle with a new label design and I hate it. I think you ruined a good thing- if I had never bought this before and was going off label alone, I probably would miss out on this incredible product because of its new, cheesy label. DONT CHANGE YOUR LABEL DESIGN.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best thing ever to touch my skin!!! I have been using this product now for 3 years, I love how it keeps my skin moisturized and soft. Every one asks what is the fragrance I'm wearing smells unique and beautiful! I used to recommend it to everyone when it was sold at Wal-Mart, but it is no longer sold anywhere in a local store. so it's not appealing to suggest for people who are not internet savvy. I ask for this as a gift for every occasion from my children.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Use to be Memorable and Perfection! 10 Years from from a former very loyal customer! This skin lotion was the best! Now what is left, is just a lost memory of what use to be a great lotion! changed from a hand full of ingredients to a long, very long list. the first ingredient which was raw shea now has been replaced for water. Question, which trust me, is not rhetoric, Do you think that we loyal customers would not notice?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft skin & wonderful fragrance all day long At first I was put off by how thick the lotion is (think cookie dough), but I came up with a perfect solution: I squeeze out a large gob of the lotion into a glass jar, add some drops of jojoba oil, and mix it up until it's a consistency that's easy to use. My skin is comfortable all day, and how I love that gentle fragrance!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this product but dispensing is an issue Rick and creamy. Helps to keep my dry skin moisturized. I get so many compliments when I layer it with my fragrance. However, the lotion is very difficult to get out of the bottle even when half full. Im hoping the company will change the container. DO NOT CHANGE THE FORMULA

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond excellent! This lotion has been my best friend!

I would recommend this brand to anyone!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Patchouli and Buriti Hand Cream This used to be the most amazing smelling lotion I have ever tried, but you guys changed something and it just smells like chemicals with some scent thrown in there now. I'm so sad about this, because it was my absolute favorite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Moisturizing This lotion is thick and wonderfully moisturizing. Unfortunately, it is next to impossible to get it out of the bottle. While the scent is nice, it is a bit overwhelming. The only reason I would not recommend it is the bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Divine I love this stuff. So rich and creamy and it smells divine. My only complaint is that is is so rich and thick that I find it hard to get out of the squeeze bottle after I use the first third. Worth the trouble, though...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please don't change a thing I love everything about this lotion! Skin still feel smooth the next day too. Some have said it's hard to get out of the bottle, but just take the lid off and squeeze it out. Very easy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not much Fragrance..Lotion is good What happened to the scent? It's very faint. Was once one of my main reasons for purchasing. Will probably not purchase again since there are other lotions out there just as good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE Randomly stumbled across this wonderful lotion at Target! & I’m so happy I gave it a try, it’s not greasy and it smells great. Most importantly it moisturizes very well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great if you can get out of bottle This is a great lotion but the packaging is totally inappropriate for the lotion. It will not come out of the bottle because it is so thick. VERY frustrating

Rated 3 out of 5 by from PUT THIS IN A TUBE! I love the fragrance and hydration, but the bottle sucks! I see others have the same complaint. Get a clue and put this in a tube like the hand cream!

Can I use this on my face? I can't find any information about whether Nubian Heritage lotions are comedogenic..

Asked by: czer
I have been a customer for 9 years. I use it on my face and have never had a problem with my skin breaking out. In fact, I actually have co-workers and strangers in the store tell me how great my skin looks. I don't use any other type of make-up. I do however really miss the old formula. I was coming to the site to complain but, now see others have already complained.

Is the soy milk in the shea butter lotion organic?

Asked by: Maamiajoakum
Doesn't matter, it's bad either way. 95% of all soy produced comes from Monsanto engineered seeds and will have residue of Round-up and glyphosate. Do you want that on your body?

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.

Asked by: Becca
A couple of years ago I tried to buy a lotion online that you can normally only buy in an authorized salon. It showed up on Amazon. I was perplexed why could they sell it directly to the public but no one else but a salon could? So I called the actual company directly and asked them the lady said that the product sold on amazon must be a knock-off because they only would it via salons. From then in I’ve been skeptical of buying products via amazon because I’m never sure if they are the original or a knock-off ☹️

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 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.
