The Neff Entrepreneurial Intern Fellow

Working at a start-up isn’t working at all; it’s living and breathing the universal belief of all start-ups: We will succeed. Success is measured incrementally in units sold, LinkedIn endorsements received, and business cards acquired. Every rejection, every negative review, and every sleepless night is fuel for the fire. If you believe in anything other than the inevitability of success, go home.

As cliché as it might sound, my internship found me. I was surfing my favorite natural hair care blog when I came across Kreyol Essence. Founded by a Haitian-American powerhouse of a woman (aka Yve-Car Momperousse), Kreyol Essence promised to pamper my curls with sustainable natural products and to invigorate the economy of my mother’s homeland. I sent an e-mail, made a call, and was well on my way to an internship capable of combining my International Relations major with my love of hair products.

Feels Great

A lush and rich cream that keeps my skin moisturized. I did not give this product 5 stars because it smells more like rum and less like mango. I thought the scent would be a bit sweeter. Besides that, a great product.

Excellent 5/5

I recently ordered this for my mom who has been struggling with finding a natural regiment. Since getting these products she has absolutely adored how it made her hair feel. She was even more ecstatic to find out that the ingredients came from her home country. Thank you so much for this product!!!

Love, love LOVE these two products!

I love the scent of the cleanser, light, fresh and botanical. Leaves my face feeling clean but not stripped and dry. The moringa oil is light and not greasy and my skin soaks it up. I'm a low-maintenance skin care diva so this duo is a home run for me. THANK YOU!!

Great Product..

The product is very moisturizing but for the price it is much smaller than what I had in mind. I can only use this for my hands because utilizing the cream for my body on the daily bases I would run out less than a week.
