How about some ethically sourced beauty products from Haiti for the loved ones on your gift list this year? Sounds good huh..let me introduce you to Kreyol Essence. I love the story behind the brand and also how the brand is focused on creating jobs for the locals in Haiti, especially women! Their star product is Black Castor oil from Haiti which is great for your hair and skin.
I love products developed on long standing ancient wisdom from different cultures because there is usually an ounce of truth in grandma’s beauty secrets ( unless it has been proven dangerous by modern science). I was thus quite excited to try out Kreyol Essence products since I have heard about castor oil being great for your hair and eyebrows but never knew that it was a great moisturizer for your skin too! Check out their website (HERE) to learn more about the brand, castor oil and how they are a social impact driven company.
I got a chance to try out their body butters, available in 4 scents; Lavender Hibiscus, Haitian Vetiver, Cafe au lait and Mango, Papaya Coconut Rhum Punch.
I can attest to the fact that Cafe au lait and Mango, Papaya Coconut Rhum punch smell delicious enough to eat! (Do not eat!! :D) Lavender Hibiscus and Haitian Vetiver have very soothing and calming scents..perfect to slather on to your skin after a late night shower to lull you into dreamland.
The body butters are triple whipped and look so dreamy in the tub (again makes me want to eat them 😀 ).
All of these body butters are infused with Haitian Castor seed oil and enriched with a whopping 30% of shea butter. They do not contain any parabens, mineral oil or petroleum products. I really like the ingredient list of these body butters. Take a look!
I think these body butters make fantastic gifts..they are available in different sizes so you can always pick up a few of the smaller sizes as stocking stuffers!
When Kreyol Essence sent me these body butters they also sent along 3 vials of their scented Haitian Black Castor oils. These can be used on the hair, scalp or as a post shower body oil. I plan to test them out as body oil since they smell amazing! They sent me the chocolate, Rosemary Mint and Lavender Hibiscus. I can smell them without opening the seal completely. I didn’t open them up completely since I didn’t want these to go rancid… I am currently going through my stash of body oil you see 🙂
Kreyol Essence has a ton of gift options and gift boxes on their website currently. Some of the gift boxes are marked down so check them out!!
Overall, I am very impressed with the body butters and look forward to trying some of the other products on their website. Have you tried anything from Kreyol Essence? Let me know!
Until next time, ciao!!!
