Started by street vendors in Harlem in 1991, Nubian Heritage rose from humble beginnings to bring culturally authentic healing traditions from ancient Nubia to the modern world. Nubian Heritage draws its inspiration from Ancient Nubia, which was once a center of cultural trade — a place where goods, ideas, and customs from across Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean came together, influenced each other, and then spread across the world. The company brings new life to traditional healing practices, cultural wisdom and indigenous ingredients, resulting in ancient takes on modern solutions for skin and hair. Nubian Heritage continuously develops new products and remedies, and plans to create more in the future. Although, what will never change are how their products are made and the values they carry. All products by Nubian Heritage are: Cruelty Free Fair Trade Recyclable No Antibiotics / Synthetic Hormones Paraben Free Salt Free Soy Free Vegetarian Nubian Heritage’s products The company offers a wide range of skin and hair products that draw on plants and other natural ingredients.
