Humble Beginnings: Nubian Heritage is the brainchild of two New York street vendors. In 1992, fresh out of college and without jobs, Rich and Nyema embarked on a mission to produce luxurious natural products from traditional African recipes with fair trade ingredients. Today Nubian Heritage offers culturally authentic natural products inspired by global ancient healing philosophies. Although Nubian Heritage products are no longer made in bath tubs, little else has changed; the company still makes its own products, still uses fair trade ingredients and still invests in community commerce.
Heritage: Historical references to Shea Butter, a staple of African pharmacology, date back to the reported Shea Butter caravans of Cleopatra’s Egypt.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 has aromatherapy benefits. Myrrh dates back to an Ebers papyrus (circa 1580) recipe for a facial mask. Symbolizing growth.
This package pattern highlights the shea nut, a symbol of collective empowerment through our community commerce supply chain.
