For some women, having a bad hair day can lead to many other problems.

If you listen to Yve-Car Momperousse, there cannot have been many who have experienced worse than she after a trip to a hair stylist about seven years ago.

“I called it a hair catastrophe,” said Momperousse, who has managed several nonprofits in three states including Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey. “I had been growing my hair naturally, and I went to a hairdresser and asked to have my hair pressed. The hairdresser decided to use a lot of heat to straighten my hair and burned me badly.”

Momperousse said she turned to her mother back in Haiti for a remedy, as she had done with countless other ailments. Her mother reached for old reliable, Haitian Black Castor Oil. That’s when Momperousse decided to start Kreyol Essence, a company that creates skin and hair care products based on Haitian traditions.

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.
