Nubian Heritage - Bar Soap Raw Shea Butter - 5 oz. - Soy Milk & Oils of Frankincense & Myrrh
Nubian Heritage Raw Shea Butter Bar Soap is a traditional African recipe with soy milk, frankincense and myrrh. Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of African pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea butter caravans of Cleopatra's Egypt. Frankincense, known for its toning and anti-aging properties also has aroma-therapeutic benefits promoting mental strength, clarity and balance. Myrrh, as a superior cosmetic ingredient in ancient remedies, can be dated to a Ebers papyrus (circa 1580 BC) recipe for a facial mask.
Nubian Heritage's traditional Raw Shea Butter soap is rich in essential vitamins and nourishing ingredients, including Vitamins E, Soy Milk, and Cocoa Butter, infused with a special essential oil blend of Frankincense, Myrrh, Cardamom, Ginger and Black Pepper, which add skin-healing properties and an aromatic experience.
Nubian Heritage's Humble Beginnings
In 1992, fresh out of college without jobs, Rich and Nyema embarked on a personal mission to produce high quality bath and body products utilizing all-natural ingredients and ancient healing philosophies from around the globe. Nubian Heritage is the brainchild of these lifelong friends, turned New York Street Vendors, who simply grew frustrated with the inferior quality, high chemical content, poor selection and exorbitant prices of skin care products. Today Nubian Heritage has hundreds of all-natural and organic products and although they are no longer made in bath tubs or kitchen sinks, little else has changed. They are still obsessed with Fair Trade ingredients, Ancient Healing Philosophies, Community Commerce and Culturally Authentic Products.
From selling on a sidewalk in Harlem, Richelieu Dennis and Nyema Tubman transformed drops of scented oil into sundial creations, a business conglomerate that today includes 4 retail stores and a state of the art 50,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility. Locally, the company provides community entrepreneurs, artists and authors a platform to sell their crafts, books, jewelry, clothing and other handmade products through the sundial stores. A percentage of sales are donated to local congregations to support youth and other community development programs.
