The Nubian Heritage body wash in your fall Yuzen box features three pretty cool-sounding ingredients—Indian hemp, Haitian vetiver, and neem oil. When you use the body wash, you’ll be amazed at how good it smells and how soft it leaves your skin, but you might wonder, “What are these ingredients, and why do they work so well?”
NEEM OIL is one of the basics of Ayurveda, the ancient Indian practice of natural health principles. It is an oil pressed from the fruit and seeds of the neem, which is an evergreen tree that originally grew only in the Indian subcontinent but has since been introduced elsewhere. Neem oil helps soothe irritation, but it’s also hydrating and moisturizing.
VETIVER is a type of grass native to Asia that produces an earthy, grounding, fragrant oil; it’s known for its aromatherapy benefits like the ability to calm the spirit.
HEMP SEED OIL is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids; hemp was first cultivated in China as early as 4000 B.C. and was common in ancient skin and hair preparations.
Put the three ingredients together and you have a fresh, herbal formula with a unisex scent that offers soothing and moisturizing capabilities for a salon-like experience right in your own shower.
The three ingredients also have something else in common—they all support Nubian Heritage’s ongoing practice of bringing together “natural healing practices, cultural wisdom, and indigenous ingredients.” They use these ancient ingredients to create new and exciting natural solutions so that they can continue their original mission: “To make cultural exchange the model for transforming the global community.”
