OUR HERITAGE

Sustainably harvested from farms in Haiti, our 100% natural Haitian Black Castor Oil (also known as lwil maskriti, palma chrisiti or l’huile de ricin) has been used in Haiti for centuries for beauty and medicinal purposes. In Haiti, the elders use a traditional hand processing method that includes roasting, grinding, and cooking the castor seeds. The oil is then screen filtered without refining.  Kreyol Essence Haitian Black Castor Oil Boasts an Endless Number of Beauty Benefits because of this processing.
