Familiarity breeds comfort for most when it comes to bath products, the acutely sensitive skin types among us carting sample sizes of our preferred shower stuffs from home on our travels. It’s a good policy even if your derma is more durable, though, as most hotels tend to skimp on the suds.
Not so the Marriott Port-au-Prince.
Haiti’s newest hotel proudly features soaps, shampoos, and lotions produced by Ayiti Natives that are among the best I’ve ever come across at any hotel on my travels.
Developed and produced entirely in Haiti, Ayiti Natives beauty products are all made with essentials oils, nuts, and herbs. True to the company name, all ingredients are native to Haiti.
Oh yeah, this is the good stuff – all natural and completely free of the types of detergents and harsh chemicals that leave you smelling like something better suited to disinfect your toilet or mop the floor.
Ayiti Natives was founded by Caroline Sada, a Haitian-American who cut her teeth in the beauty biz at Estee Lauder. Caroline’s love for her homeland and strong desire to affect a positive change in the aftermath of the devastating 2010 earthquake brought her back to Haiti later that same year. Ayiti Natives opened for business in December 2011; a fresh start for Caroline that renders all who use her products feeling the same.
Ayiti Natives products are standard in every bathroom throughout the 175-room Marriott Port-au-Prince. If you’re like me, though, you’ll want to make them standard in your own home as well. To do so, visit Ayiti Natives online, or keep an eye on this space where we hope to offer Ayiti soaps for sale soon…
