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.

I enjoyed this oil. The fragrance was wonderful - I got compliments because of it. Next time, I will order a bigger bottle! Also, I have began to notice that my hair appears thicker since I started using it.

GREAT value & effective products

From the Cocktail Hour Massage & Body Oil to the Haitian Moringa Facial Cleanser to the ALWAYS reliable Haitian Castor Oil, this bundle had EVERYTHING you need to stay fresh and beautiful and smelling delicious.

Just Right!

I loved my free sample of the Moringa oil. It's not too greasy and it mixes well with the natural oils on my face.

Mango & Moringa

These products leave my hair soft and smooth. The fragrance is light and refreshing.
