Kreyòl Essence is “Natural with a Purpose”. As a social business, we are obsessed with economic development, empowering women, and taking care of our environment. This is Not About Hand-Outs. Sassy, funny and exuding with confidence our hard-working and uncompromising Haitian employees and team do not request charity, but rather jobs. Every purchase of Kreyol Essence products helps us change the lives.

WHY WOMEN EMPOWERMENT

Women are the backbone of the country before and after the earthquake. However, women are also victims of gender-based violence and extreme poverty due to high unemployment. We want to bring more than hope to women. Through slow yet consistent growth, our business will create economic opportunities for women.
90% OF KREYOL
ESSENCE STAFF ARE WOMEN. WE ARE
WOMEN RUN & LED.

WHY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

The revival of Haiti’s economy will come from job creation—not donations. Education, health, and poverty alleviation can all be improved when people have income and unemployment is reduced. This is what we are championing as a brand. The popularity of Haitian Black Castor Oil and other Kreyol Essence products will also help Haiti's economy by stimulating its GDP; the country has had a trade deficit for decades and exporting will help to reduce the shortage.

WHY ENVIRONMENTAL RESTORATION

Farming and harvesting castor beans will reduce deforestation, soil erosion, and gas emission in Haiti. As an agribusiness, Kreyol Essence carefully plants and harvest our raw and natural ingredients to produce the best beauty products in the Caribbean and protect the environment.
