Nubia Cosmetics naturally nourishes, refreshes and enhances melanin-rich skin.
Nubia products and services reflect values of self-love, community service and hope as well as our common heritage. Nubia Cosmetics was founded by Kadesha Alleyne, a Master Aesthetician and Cosmetologist from Barbados, out of love for her skin.
From the time Kadesha was a young girl her uncle encouraged her to love herself through a healthy respect for her skin. He would say to her, “Remember you are a Nubian Princess. Don’t bleach your skin. Love yourself”. Now, as a grown woman, Kadesha is on a mission to spread the importance of self-love through love of skin.
Nubia’s mission is to help people throughout the world who have melanin-rich skin celebrate who they are without apology. Nubia offers women, men and children a full range of skin-care products and associated services as doorways to becoming the best possible versions of themselves. While the products can be used by everyone who wants healthier and more vibrant skin, Nubia products have been specially formulated to tackle the challenges that come with having that rich chocolaty goodness we call melanin.
The products are natural, cruelty-free, environmentally-friendly, recyclable, affordable and, most important of all, specially formulated for the full array of skin types!

It’s SouthAsian Reviews – These soaps are very gentle on the skin yet they make a rich lather very quickly. You don’t have to use much as a little goes a long way! You can use the soap for the body or even hands. We tried both ways and loved the beautiful scent of the soaps and the rich lather, that left the skin clean and fresh! These soaps are great for sensitive skin as well as any other skin type! The Goat Milk & Lavender is our favourite-most soap, as its very hydrating to use and has this lavender scent to it!

It’s SouthAsian Reviews – This is our favourite Face Wash, as again it lathers up really well, and the skin is left feeling so clean! The beauty of this face wash is that if you have break outs or if you have acne prone skin then you can use this face wash as it has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Also, to add here, is that you don’t have to use too much of the face wash, just a pea size would lather up really well and can be used for the entire face and neck!

It’s SouthAsian Reviews – Vanilla scented soap with such silkiness in the feel of this lotion helps the body feel as though it is “silk.” If you use it on the hands, then the hands stay soft throughout the day. The best is to use this lotion after having a warm shower, as it penetrates better in the skin and the body feels soft and supple.
Caribbean Chocolate Body Lotion is a rich and luxurious velvety body lotion enriched by the antioxidant power of cocoa extract. Our lotions are made using our own proprietary, fast-absorbing formula that ensures that every drop of lotion leaves your skin feeling fresh, moisturized, and ready to shine!
It’s SouthAsian Reviews – This has a very unique smell that we have personally experienced for “a body lotion.”It has a very strong scent of Cocoa and then it gets a hint of something sweet, so a very sweet cocoa smell. The lotion as described previously is very silky and keeps the body very hydrated and soft! This one is our favorite amongst the body lotions, as you get a whiff of sweet cocoa from time to time and that makes it a very pleasant feeling!
