About This Brand

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.

The Most Heavenly Smelling Black Soap

This is the first black soap that I have used that smells just as good as it works; on my face as well as my body! In the past I have used the Nubian Heritage Black Soap Bar but this time I wanted to order it in a liquid form.. I prefer liquid soaps after using Dr Bronner's Tea Tree soap which is also a really good purchase from Thrive Market.

The second brand of black soap I am familiar with is made by Shea Moisture; and it smells more on the fruity bubblegum side.. which is kind of weird to me.

I just love using this product and following up with Shea Butter as a moisturizer on my face. I'm currently using Now Foods Shea Butter but I'm going to switch to a creamier texture from another brand because the Now Foods brand of Shea Butter is really stiff to work with and takes a lot more effort to rub between the palms of my hands.

Love It

I bought this for my husband and he absolutely loved it and asked me to purchase more for him.

Nubian body soap

Smells good. Feels good.


Leaves strong smell

On the plus side, Just a little bit goes a long way, really lathers up. Big minus is that is leaves a strong scent on your skin that lasts half a day. The scent is not very pleasant, but not really bad either. I would describe it as beachy/suntan-lotion/earthy/powdery smell lol. It really stays with you for a long time. I will not purchase again.

Amazing Body Wash!

I was a little hesitant to try this to be honest because of the color. Don't let that deter you!! This body wash smells nice, gives a little bit of exfoliation and leaves your skin feeling amazing. Great value product!!

- Madeleine


I absolutely adore this product. The color is a deep dark brown and you can see the exfoliating pieces in it when you squeeze it onto your hand. The scent is so warm and inviting and lasts all day, which I have never experienced in another body wash. I wish this body wash was a bit more abrasive because I like that roughness that you can feel polishing your skin. Overall, I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. It smells wonderful and leaves your skin feeling baby soft all day long.

A friend of mine let me use this one day, and I was hooked ever since! A little goes a long ways, and it smells fantastic. I like to pair it with the lotion after my shower.

- MomK

Great soap

This is a wonderful product. Makes my skin feel amazing and smells great. I highly recommend it.

- Jackie

Powerful stuff

I've only used it once so far and it is good stuff but I have combination oily skin and it let my skin slightly dry and itchy. If you buy this it does help with acne prone skin, it's not really great for sensitive/dry skin. Be careful how much you use. I plan on probably using every other 2 to 3 days to help with my acne, but I'll definitely be putting on lotion after.

- Racheal

Absolutely wonderful!

My new favorite body wash! The small is incredible. I have even used this as a shampoo with great results. Will be purchasing more. Natures finest!

- Kristy

Lathers well - a little goes a long way

I've tried other liquid black soaps, and while good for their price, the African Black soap is thicker - and doesn't seem to be diluted like similar products. The soap lathers very well, so a little really goes a long way.

- Rikeshia

Not My Favorite Brand

Nubian makes some good soaps, but I found that the body wash dries my skin out much more than I would prefer. My son uses it and loves it, so it may just be my skin. He loves that it gets rid of his pimples and using it regularly he doesn't get them often. So, we do still use it in our home, but I am going to be trying out a different brand for myself.

Works Great For Eczema

I have been using Nubian products for a while and I started using the body wash and scrub this year. I have eczema and it's done wonders for my skin. You can really tell the difference when you try a different product.

Thrive Market has made it much easier (and cheaper) to purchase great products like this for healthy and beautiful skin.

- Rachael Lewis


I have very sensitive skin. Regular use of most products breaks me out. I use this daily and it helps control my breakouts.

It's got a fantastic lather and my skin feels smooth after I use it.

- Becky

Smells so clean!

Love this body wash and won't be buying any other. Love that the beads that act as the scrub; leaves my skin so smooth and soft. Most of all, I love the shea butter scent. It's subtle, but still smells nice and lingers for most of the day.

- Brit

Love this soap

I have psoriasis and this soap has been a big help to keep it under control. Love it and love the smell.

- Barbara


This is the best body wash I have ever tried. It smells incredible and lathers up unbelievably. Leaves you feeling clean and soft. This is my body wash from now on! I didn't realize they have a lotion but I am definitely trying that as well!

- Dawn

The best natural. all purpose soap I have found.

This is my shampoo, body wash, and facial cleanser all in one and it works for everyone in my family so we aren't buying mens, womens, and kids soaps. The smell is amazing and stays with you for a long time.

- Jesse


Keeps my skin beeeeeautiful and glowing! I ALWAYS get compliments on my skin♡

- Thrive User

Acne gone!

I have been using this product for 1 month. After a week my face looked so much better. Acne cleared, my face is soft and an added bonus I don't have to buy a face wash and body wash.

- Michelle

Nubian products rock!

I love this line of products. My skin feels so soft and the aroma lingers throughout my bathroom for hours.
