Nubian Heritage creates a line of skin and body products. From the company’s blog, “We got our start as street vendors in Harlem.

Short on experience, but full of passion and determination, we used our knowledge of culturally authentic healing traditions to create our natural skin and body treatments back in 1992, and every day since.”
