Yve-Car, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?

My inspiration to start Kreyòl Essence came from a personal “hair catastrophe.” I wore my hair naturally and decided to temporarily straighten it for an event. I went to the nearest hair salon and the beautician applied massive heat to my hair, which gave me the sleek look I wanted. However, when I was ready to return to my natural curls, I discovered my hair was limp, lifeless and breaking severely. I had permanent heat damage. I knew the one thing that could revive my hair was the Haitian Black Castor Oil my mother used on me as a child to strengthen, grow, and moisturize my hair.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t readily available in my neighborhood, so I had to ask my mother to send some of her secret stashes. I joked to her that maybe I should bring Haitian Castor Oil to the U.S., My mother, being a serial entrepreneur, recognized the potential of the idea and encouraged me to do some research. Thus, I began the journey of creating Kreyòl Essence As a woman, I have gone through the highs and lows of dealing with my hair, body,and truly accepting myself. I did not want anyone else to suffer, like I did, from not having access to products that help them be the best version of themselves. I am also a certifiable product junkie (PJ).

I love quality luxury products, particularly, affordable luxury items. I wanted to help introduce the benefits of a time-honored and proven ingredient in conjunction with delectable creamy butter, fragrant essential oils and exotic ingredients such as Haitian pine nut oil. The exciting thing about our products is that all ethnicities will enjoy our products. Cleopatra was found with Castor beans in her tombstone, women in India, the Philippines, and all over the world have used castor oil. However, it’s been a very refined version of the oil. KE provides an unrefined and organic product that everyone will benefit from.

I am hooked!!

I found your products in an artisan market in Miami. Ever since I am hooked. My favorite products are the chocolate vanilla castor oil, the coffee coconut body cream. I put it on my hair, body, nails, and lips. When I use it on my body I rub my 2 hands together for a while to warm up and thin out the product, then I pat my hands in the various areas, and then I start rubbing. When I do this I don't have to moisturize daily. It will last me for 2 days. Please don't change your formulas as you grow in order to put up with increasing demand and growth. I noticed you added the Vanilla to the original Chocolate castor oil.

Great for Winter Hands

With all of the handwashing that I have been doing lately, this product has worked great to keep my hands moisturized without feeling sticky! So far, so good!
