    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do they do animal testing on any of their products?
    No, as company, they do not believe in animal testing of any of their products or ingredients used in making them. They require all our ingredient suppliers to abide by this same principle.

    Are their products 100% Vegetarian?
    All their products are 100% vegetarian.

    Are all their products Vegan?
    While all their products are 100% vegetarian, not all are vegan. The Organics line is 100% vegan. Although several of thier products have small amounts of beeswax and honey in their formulas, no animals are ever harmed to get these ingredients.

    Are their products Gluten Free?
    Most of their products and all of their Organics line are Gluten Free. Please refer to packaging to determine if product is gluten free or not.

    What is the shelf life of DE Products?
    Most of their products have a 3 year shelf life.

    Producct Packaging

    Is the packaging recyclable? BPA free?
    All their tubes, bottles, and caps are recyclable and free of BPA. Refer to packaging for recyclability information. For example, in the Organics line, the tubes are #2 HDPE, while the caps are #5 PP.

    What is the difference between their different Tea Tree Oils?
    Their Tea Tree Oils vary based on how they are grown and harvested. All are subject to the highest quality standards possible, including terpinen-4 levels of 38+ and low cineole levels of less than 3%.

    Their 100% Australian Tea Tree Oil is grown and harvested conventionally. Their growers are certified under the Code of Practice that sets guidelines for Tea Tree production and quality. This oil is steam distilled and no chemicals are used in the process. Sustainable practices are used, including use of solar energy, state of the art irrigation, and minimal pesticides.

    Their Eco-Harvest Tea Tree Oil is grown on an environmentally sustainable, ecologically responsible plantation that is aligned with a USDA Organic operation, but is NOT USDA certified.

    Their Organic Oil is USDA certified and grown under the most environmentally sustainable, ecological, and responsible practices. No chemicals, pesticides, or herbicides are used on the farm, which is surrounded by protected government land. Rain water is used instead of an irrigation system, cows are used to graze and control weeds and grasses, and a wood-fired burner is used to steam distill the oil.

    Is their Tea Tree Oil steam-distilled?
    Yes, their tea tree oil is steam-distilled, and no chemicals are used in the process.

    What is the chemical composition of our Tea Tree Oil?
    Tea Tree Oil is made up of over 300 chemical compounds. The most important of these are Terpinen-4, which is responsible for antiseptic action, and cineole, which can be responsible for skin irritation. They require our tea tree oils to have Terpinen-4 levels of 38% and over, which is well above industry average. The cineole levels are kept low at less than 3%, which are well below industry average.

    How should Tea Tree Oil be used?
    Tea Tree Oil should always be diluted with water, a carrier oil, or other liquid before applying to skin. Test on a patch of skin before applying. Avoid getting into eyes. Review product instructions and warnings before use.

    JOJOBA OIL
    Is the 100% Pure Jojoba Oil cold-pressed or chemically extracted?
    Their Jojoba Oil is cold-pressed and no chemicals are involved in the extraction process.

    Will refrigerating my Jojoba Oil extend the shelf life?
    The shelf life of their Jojoba Oil is 3 years. Storing it in the refrigerator can extend its shelf life by as much as 1 year. Please note that the oil will solidify when exposed to cold, but will return to liquid at room temperature, without affecting the quality of the oil.

    What are some of the uses of Jojoba Oil?
    Jojoba Oil has many useful applications. It can be used as a deep conditioning treatment for hair, skin moisturizer, or even as a shaving prep.

    What is the difference between the Organic Jojoba Oil and the Non-Organic Jojoba Oil?
    Organic Jojoba Oil is certified by the USDA Organic as meeting strict ingredient and processing standards, including no use of pesticides, fungicides, and any other chemicals. The conventional Jojoba Oil is extracted without any chemicals, but is not certified under the USDA organic standard.

    SHAMPOOS & CONDITIONERS
    Can I use any Organics shampoo on color-treated hair?
    For color-treated hair, we recommend using the Italian Red Grape Shampoo and Conditioner, which were specially formulated to protect against sun damage and fading. Please avoid using any shampoo or conditioner with Tea Tree Oil, as that may lighten hair color. If you color your hair and the color comes out too dark, a Tea Tree Replenishing Shampoo Therapeutic and Conditioner can help lighten the color.

    DENTAL CARE
    Does the wax in the Tea Tree Dental Tape contains any soy, corn or gluten?
    No, it is free of soy, corn, and gluten.

    Do your toothpastes and mouthwashes contain flouride?
    All therir dental care products are fluoride-free.

    FACIAL SKIN CARE
    Are the Tea Tree Oil Cleansing Pads and cleansers pH balanced?
    Their pads and cleansers help to pH balance your skin. The skin, especially if it has problems, is slightly acidic. Their cleansers run slightly alkaline so they can help pH balance the skin.

    SUNSCREENS
    Does the sunscreen contain nanoparticles?
    No, they do not use or allow any of their vendors use nanoparticles.

    DEODORANTS
    Does the deodorants contain aluminum?
    No, their deodorants do not contain aluminum.

    INGREDIENTS
    I have severe allergies. Can they tell me what is in their "proprietary blend of essential oils"?
    They are not able to disclose the exact blend of all natural essential oils and extracts used in their products. However, if you are allergic to a particular ingredient, please contact them and they can let you know if the product contains that.

    Are their products nut-free?
    Most of their products are nut-free. However, they recommend you review the ingredient list before you use any Desert Essence product.

    What products contain soy?
    Their pure oils, most of their facial skin care and Organics products do not contain soy. Please refer to packaging to determine if product contains soy or not, or check the ingredients online.

    What are the following ingredients derived from?

    • Vegetable Glycerin — derived from coconuts
    • Glyceryl Stearate — derived from coconut and palm
    • Cetyl Alcohol — derived from coconut
    • Potassium Sorbate — derived from fruit
    • Grain Alcohol — derived from corn

    What is Titanium Dioxide?
    Titanium dioxide is a naturally occurring mineral that helps block harmful UVA and UVB rays. In fact, most sunscreens on the market today contain some amount of titanium dioxide or zinc oxide.

    What is Resveratrol used for?
    Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant derived from red grapes as well as certain plants. It is believed to have strong skin and hair benefits.

    What are Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)?
    Natural AHAs come from citrus or other fruits. They work by exfoliating and cleansing the skin, causing surface skin cells to slough off to reveal clear, radiant skin.

    Do the Organics products contain fragrance (parfum)?
    They use the international standard INCI to list their ingredients. The INCI standard requires the words "fragrance (parfum)" be added to the label when extracts and oils are used, even if they are all natural. Please know that all their fragrances—or blends of extracts and essential oils—meet all guidelines set forth by the Natural Product Association (NPA).

    Inspiration
    The desert landscape is a model of pristine balance and sustainability, where limited natural resources, if used responsibly, offer the body and spirit untold benefits. The desert is both the source of Desert Essence's ingredients and the inspiration for how they bring their products to you. Drawn from nutrient-rich desert botanicals revered in native cultures for their healing properties, Desert Essence's naturally effective products work in harmony with your body to soothe, nurture, and restore.

    Conscience
    Desert Essence strives every day to ensure both their products and their practices reflect the serious commitment they make to the health of our planet. To support sustainability, Desert Essence uses natural and organic ingredients from around the world. Desert Essence supports a federation of Australian plantation farmers who have signed a pledge not to use any artificial pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. No animal testing is performed on Desert Essence's raw materials or their finished products. Desert Essence offsets 100% of their electricity annually by purchasing energy credits, by printing all their brochures on paper recycled from chopsticks, and by doing the simple things like turning off the lights when leaving any office or room.

    Promise
    Desert Essence was founded in 1972 to promote the countless benefits of Jojoba Oil & Aloe Vera. Desert Essence went on to become the first company to introduce Australian Tea Tree Oil to the United States market. Since then, Desert Essence has expanded to include natural and organic beauty care products specifically formulated to improve the lifestyles of today’s most health-conscious consumers. As Desert Essence discovers more natural ingredients, their products will continue to evolve. Desert Essence looks forward to bringing their benefits of healing, beauty, and renewal to your life, and to the life of the world we all share.

      I recommend this product!
      I was a bit disappointed with this face lotion. I have very dry skin, and had previously needed to add a rich Derma E face cream to my sunblock in order to not feel tight. I was hoping that I could use this by itself and that it would be moisturizing enough, but I can't. It's a nice cream, and it rubs in well, but my skin still feels a bit too tight and dry afterwards. I prefer the Alba Botanica Very Emollient Facial Sunblock spf 30 to get the moisturizing I need. This might work well for those with normal or oily skin though.

      I ordered this for my husband and he has been using it often (if not daily) over the last month or 2. It's a nice non-scented option that adds just enough moisture during the winter months without feeling greasy.
