Our vision is to break down barriers in clean beauty so more people in the world can achieve healthy and hydrated skin.
A beauty company that specializes in handcrafted products for sensitive skin, Krèm au Krèm was crafted as a response to frustration with green-washing in the beauty industry and its very real mental, physical and financial impact. Ashley Duverneau suffered from severe dry skin & eczema all her life and found herself frustrated by the number of ineffective products in the market, that were thick in texture and lacked the fun and inviting scents. This essential left her with dry skin, empty pockets and less-than-stellar product experience.
With a background in biology and product manufacturing, Ashley realized after a chance encounter that she had everything within her to create a product that's effective and would leave her feeling confident about her skin health. Her original intent did not include selling, however word started to spread about her handmade body butter and the rest is history.
A nod to her Haitian heritage, Krém au Krém is Kreyol pun on the idiom "best of the best", which symbolizes what we believe in – high performing products that are made from the planet's finest resources (additional note: Krém in Haitian Kreyol directly translates to cream) . All bodies are beautiful in their uniqueness and we seek to enhance what exists and provide those with sensitive skin a safe multi-sensory beauty experience one jar at a time.
In her words - a message from our Founder
For every soap bar purchased, a soap bar will be donated to our partner, Soaring Unlimited Haiti, whose mission is to provide safe, clean hygiene for Haitian women and children in Northern Haiti at local clinics and schools.
It has been a long aspiration of our Founder to give back to communities in need, especially those close to Ashley's heart. Giving someone in need a chance to feel clean, hydrated and safe is all the love in the world, and we are excited to bring that handmade love in the form of Krém Kares.
