Nubian Heritage is an American beauty brand that specializes in the production of natural and organic cosmetics based on traditional African recipes. It offers a wide array of high-quality products formulated with all-natural ingredients.

The brand was launched in 1992 by two college graduates, Rich and Nyema (Richelieu Dennis and Nyema Tubman). After graduating from college in Massachusetts, they were unable to return to their home country of Liberia due to civil war. They began working as street vendors in Harlem. Having partnered with Richelieu’s mother, Mary, they began handcrafting natural soaps and salves with shea butter.

What started as a humble enterprise, has become one of the best known organic cosmetic manufacturers. The main goal of Nubian Heritage is to provide consumers with high-quality cosmetics formulated with organic ingredients and made according to fair trade and ethical consumerism principles.

Ancient Nubia is sometimes referred to as the world’s first melting pot. It used to be a centre of cultural trade which brought together customs, ideas and goods from Across Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and the Mediterranean. They influenced each other and then spread across the ancient world. Inspired by this concept, the founders of Nubian Heritage launched their unique brand.

Nubian Heritage’s products are born from a combination of cultural wisdom, traditional healing practices, natural ingredients and the latest developments in modern pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry. The brand offers hundreds of authentic cosmetics products inspired by ancient recipes.

Shea butter soaps were the first products made by Dennis and Tubman. Today, the brand offers various personal care products such as body washes, deodorants, conditioners, shampoos, hair masks, hand creams, body lotions, massage oils, hand and body scrubs, and more. However, its soaps (in particular, African Black Soap) still are Nubian Heritage’s most popular products.

All cosmetic products by Nubian Heritage are formulated with certified organic ingredients. They are free of potentially harmful or irritating synthetic ingredients such as parabens, SLS/SLES, etc. It is also worth noting that the company doesn’t test its products on animals. Nubian Heritage is the perfect choice for those who prefer safe, natural and effective cosmetics.
