You know how much I love Nubian Heritage, so I’m really pumped about this post! Not only did I get to try their new collection, but one of you gets to win it as part of the giveaway! The new Abyssinian Oil & Chia Seed collection is exclusively available at Ulta.

My take on this collection?

If you’re looking for products that are seriously moisturizing and smell AMAZING without being loaded with chemicals, look no further.


About The Collection

Abyssinian Oil, a cosmetic ingredient of ancient Nubia, was made famous by the former ruler of Ethiopia, the Queen of Sheba. The plant-derived oil provides excellent moisturization due to its high fatty acid content.

Chia Seeds and Organic Amaranth Extract, ancient superfoods, were both cultivated as early as the 16th century. Together these ancient grains synergistically provide deep nourishment and protection with antioxidants and natural proteins.

Ginseng, used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, is rich in vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals to promote collagen production.


The Products




Where To Buy

You can purchase this collection exclusively from Ulta. Nubian Heritage is a great cruelty-free brand, so definitely check it out! If you only want to try 1 product from this collection, I recommend the Body Lotion ($11.99). It’s perfect.

    I love their raw shea butter with frankincense and their african black bar soap. The shea butter is so moisturizing and the soap is a really strong cleanser and works well with oily and acne prone complexions. It’s also gentle enough that it doesn’t irritate my sister’s seriously sensitive skin. Can’t wait to try out their new collection!

  • Sandy

    I have tried the black soap and really enjoyed it!

  • Lyndsay Glover

    I started this past year to make the change to ALL cruelty-free products and “Cruelty-Free Kitty” has been very helpful in making this change. I have even started contemplating creating a website myself to promote and sell cruelty-free products. :).

    I have never tried any “Nubian Heritage” products, but you better believe I am excited to try it! I have pretty sensitive skin and I think the deodorant might be my first purchase since I have not found a cruelty-free one yet that keeps me dry.

    Thanks for all you provide on your wonderful site, Suzi!

    I have yet to try Nubian Heritage. I have been vegetarian for some time and recently made the decision to become vegan so I have not had too much exposure to cruelty free brands. This would be an amazing start for me!

    I’m not sure whether or not I’ve actually heard of Nubian Heritage. However, I would love to give them a try though! I have eczema and it’s difficult to find natural and organic products that would help relieve and soothe my dry skin. The bonus of Nubian Heritage is that it’s cruelty free (unlike the lotion I’ve been using that has been tested on animals. I was so upset)!

  • Amy Marino

    I never see these in any stores by me. Only see them online! I would love to check these out! Need more cruelty free items!

  • Savannah

    These products look awesome, but I’ve never had the chance to try them before.

  • Chantal Simone

    I have never tried anything from Nubian Heritage, mostly because we don’t have an Ulta here in Toronto Canada. I recently became vegan and have started making the switch to CF beauty products. The body soufflé and body cleansing smoothie seem amazing!

  • Carol Horne Abernathy

    I have used all of the soaps by Nubian Heritage for many years. I was looking for a soap that would be good for sensitive skin and anti- aging. My skin has never been healthier! I am 57 years young and I get compliments on my youthful looking skin all the time. I would love to try this new collection. I have turned many people onto this wonderful company!
    So of course I did some research on Abyssinian oil. I read that it has superb nutritive skin benefits and that it has excellent skin moisturizing properties. This oil penetrates the skin quickly, is non-comedogenic (doesn’t clog pores) and leaves your skin feeling luxuriously smooth and soft. Sounds good to me! Another thing I like, it is environmentally friendly, renewable and sustainable, which makes it an excellent choice for natural skin care.
    Chia Seeds contains vitamin E which is a powerful antioxidant that combats inflammation and yes wrinkles! Also- it keeps our skin subtle and smooth. I like that too! Here is another beneficial quality of chia seeds. They are rich in zinc, which is one of the best anti-aging methods. It will be ideal for the wrinkles. Besides, it will help you to get rid of the undesirable acne. Zinc will tighten your skin and make it look softer.

  • Lindsay

    I use their lotions and they’re great! They all smell so nice and moisturize really well. Would like to try more of their products!
