Kreyol Essence is the first Haitian company to sell natural skin and hair care products. The company was founded in 2014 by Stephane Jean Baptiste and Yve-Car Momperousse to provide a natural method for skin and hair care.
When Momperousse was a child, her mother used to use magic oil for hair, which used to make hair completely perfect.
Like the rest of the girls, Momperousse wanted to make her hair beautiful, and for this, she used many chemical products, due to which hair was damaged.
She talked to her mom and her mom suggested Haitian black castor oil. By applying Haitian black castor oil, all the Problanc attached to the hair got solved. After this, Kreyol Essence was born.
Stephane and Yve-Car appeared on Shark Tank Season 11 Episode 11 for funding and asked the sharks for $400,000 for 10% equity at a $4 Million Valuation.

How Was The Shark Tank Pitch Of Kreyol Essence?
Yve-Car and Stéphane both enter Shark Tank, explain their business, and ask the sharks for $400k for 15% equity. All the sharks smelled the best seller’s product and they liked the product.
They have their own farm of 12 hectares from where they source the ingredients to make the products.
This business was started in 2014 and by 2015 had made sales of $135k. In 2017, they decided to go direct-to-consumer, and after that sales reached $327k. Sales reached $1M in 2018 and are projected to reach $2M in 2019.
In 2018, they generated $300k in profit from $1 million in sales and have a debt of over $300k.
Barbara, Daymond, Mark, and Lori are out of this business because the business is not worth $4 million and this business is not right for them.
Kevin O’Leary said that according to him this business is not worth $4 million, so his offer is $400k for 37% equity at a $1 Million Valuation. Yve-Car countered with $400k for 20% equity which Kevin immediately declined.
Yve-Car asked Kevin for a royalty deal of $400k for a royalty of 15 cents per unit sold. Kevin countered $400k for a royalty of 15 cents per unit sold + 5% equity. Founders accepted this offer.
