While in the Vitamin Shoppe buying my sweet almond oil, I discovered this soap by Nubian Heritage. I've purchased their black soap before, but this coconut and papaya really caught my eye. "Anti-aging, brightening and firming" it reads. The website says: Sweet-scented and nutrient-rich, the Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Collection pays homage to the bounty of natural tropical ingredients. The coconut palm has touched all aspects of daily life for millions of tropical communities. A Since the 1st Century B.C., the coconut tree has provided shelter, transportation and, more importantly, food. Coconut Oil, high in vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, is an excellent skin softener and protector. A Papaya contains papain, a naturally occurring enzyme, used for centuries to gently dissolve dead skin cells, loosen pore blockage and stimulate circulation.
Key Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Papaya Enzymes, Comfrey Root extract
Benefits: Antioxidant-rich Coconut Oil is easily absorbed into the skin to protect the skin against damage by preventing free radical formation. Coconut Oil also strengthens connective tissues to prevent sagging, wrinkles and blemishes, and helps reduce skin inflammation. Papaya enzyme exfoliates, stimulates circulation and firms skin. Shea Butter and anti-inflammatory Comfrey Root extract promote healing.
I love it simply for the fact that it has all natural ingredients. I use it on my face and body every single day. I've noticed that my skin isn't as dry and my face just looks brighter (even if just a little bit). I rub it in circular motions for about a minute and let it sit for another minute. There is nothing bad I can say about this product. Can't wait to try some of the other soaps!
