Kreyol Essence

kreyol essenceStephane Jean-Baptiste and Yve-Car Momperousse pitch Kreyol Essence, their hair treatment made from black Haitian castor oil, in Shark Tank episode 1112. Yve-Car grew up in Haiti and remembers her mom washing her hair with her “magic oil” that fixed damaged hair. When ever Yve-Car had a “hairtastrophe,” she'd use a little of the oil to get things back to normal.

While in Philadelphia, she had her hair straightened and the hot iron burned her hair. She went looking for some Haitian black castor oil, but couldn't find it anywhere, so she called her mom. They decided to start a business so everyone could share in the benefits of mom's “magic oil.” Mom was a big catalyst is starting the business. Yve-Car wanted to put the business on hold in the aftermath of the big 2010 earthquake that devastated Haiti. Mom said they needed to push forward so people could have opportunity instead of charity.

The opportunity Kreyol Essence provides is very real in Haiti. They grow their castor beans on Haitian farms. Haitian women make up the majority of the company workforce, providing jobs and economic opportunity. As the brand grows, so grows the social impact.

The products all contain some of the “magic oil.” Haitian Black Castor Oil has is high in Vitamin E, minerals, proteins, and Omega 6 and 9 beneficial fatty acids, which makes it an excellent conditioner for hair and skin. There are a wide variety of products available on the company's Amazon page and prices vary widely, depending on the product. They also have their product in hundreds of stores in the USA and Canada – including many Whole Foods stores. Yve-Car and Stephane appear to have a solid business on their hands. They likely want a Shark to help them get to the next level.
