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 organic and fair trade ingredients. Today Nubian Heritage offers hundreds of 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 and organic ingredients and still invests in community commerce. Heritage: Since ancient times, the coconut tree has been a vital source of food and nourishment for millions of tropical communities in South America, Asia, the Caribbean and Africa. Coconut oil is valued natural cleanser and moisturizer. Papaya has a long history of being revered for its skin rejuvenating properties.
