TROPIC ISLE LIVING
Tropic Isle Living Founders, Michael Anthony Hines and Lois Reid-Hines, got their start at Sundial Herbs, a Bronx-based retailer specializing in traditional herbal products and remedies. It was there that the seeds of their passion for beauty and wellness rooted in nature were planted.
Tropic Isle began in 1992 with a suitcase, a gallon of Jamaican Black Castor Oil, a hand cart, and a dream to celebrate Jamaican traditions & remedies. Later it would become Tropic Isle Living. It was then that Michael Anthony Hines would coin the name that is now recognized as “Jamaican Black Castor Oil”. Following Michael’s passing in 2016, Lois was given the option to sell Tropic Isle Living or to become the fearless leader that it greatly needed. Lois chose the latter.
Today, Lois has made it her mission to carry out Michael’s vision of making Jamaican Black Castor Oil a household staple, while continuing to create innovative new products that are rich in tradition, culture, and natural Jamaican-sourced ingredients. Tropic Isle Living continues to flourish and now can be found in many beauty supply stores, health food stores, and major retailers around the globe.

Great leave in for all hair types. This is the best leave in conditioner I’ve tried and I’ve tried a lot of all natural products on my hair to see which one yields the best results and this gave me the results I was looking for. It leaves your hair soft, well conditioned, and gives it a great glow.
JBCO Goodness . . . I’m loving this stuff! This is a wonderful product for blending with other oils and making a scalp massaging oil to encourage fast hair growth as well as fuller soft hair. Also, it is wonderful to blend with natural body, skin and hair oils AND to apply to wounds to speed up healing and reducing scars.
