Hydrate and restore youthful softness and luster with nourishing Shea Butter, antioxidant Vitamin E and calming Lavender essential oil. This magnificent moisturizer helps balance and condition skin, relax tired muscles and improve skin health. 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 Venders, 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. Heritage: The historic use and recognition of lavender as the most versatile therapeutic botanical essence dates to its use in ancient times by the Egyptians, Phoenicians and the people of Arabia as perfume. Lavender, first cultivated by the Arabians, is thought to have spread across Europe from the Greek Hyeres Islands. Lavender has traditionally been used to treat all skin types due to its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, rejuvenating, soothing and deodorizing effects.
