Humble Beginnings Nubian Heritage is the brainchild of two New York street vendors. 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 change; the company still makes it products itself, still uses fair trade organic ingredients and still invests in community commerce.
