Kreyol Essence - Whole Foods

Kreyol Essence is excited to be the first company to launch Haitian beauty products at Whole Foods Market and the first Haitian company to bring Haiti’s beauty treasure to the mainstream U.S. & Canadian market! Haitian Black Castor Oil aka Lwil Maskriti is the Liquid Gold of the Caribbean. We have known for centuries how this indigenous oil promotes hair growth, moisturizes hair and skin, and is a staple for medicinal purposes. 

Having our products at Whole Foods is a testament to our quality and commitment to social impact in Haiti. We are launching in over 95 stores in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, Ohio, Kentucky, Florida, Canada, and are working on additional locations every day. If you want the best black castor oil and to help create work for women and farmers, purchase your bottle of oil at any of the Whole Foods Stores listed below and tell a friend to do the same.

So in love.

I am so in love with this company. I bought the Hair Vitamin/ Hair Loss treatment to help with my thinning edges. I have locs so I twist my hair which can lead to thinning. After using this product my hair looks healthier and fuller. And the shampoo smells amazing. The moringa powder is a great addition to the kit. Not only do I feel healthier, my skin looks more vibrant. They also added a sample of moringa oil to my order. I will definitely be buying again.


Excellent. Smells great too and it feels amazing. Very smooth and light.


The best thing ever!!!!My skin loved it!


excellent product despite original smell.
