A Healthy Conscience
Few things are more beautiful than peace of mind, body, and spirit. Inspired by the nature around us and the lifestyles of those who embrace it,
Desert Essence was founded in 1978 to bring the best of nature’s offerings to personal care regimens everywhere. Inspired by the desert and
all that it has to offer, Desert Essence became the first company to market Jojoba Oil. Desert Essence then went on to introduce Tea Tree Oil to the US 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 they discover more natural ingredients, Desert Essence products will continue to evolve, but their core values remain constant, staying true to you, to their inspiration—the desert—and to the Earth that nourishes us.
Harmony with Nature
Just as nature is kind and giving to us, Desert Essence strives to be kind and giving in return. The desert is both the source of Desert Essence ingredients and a model of pristine balance and sustainability, where limited natural resources, if used responsibly, offer untold benefits. With this in mind, Desert Essence extracts their ingredients with environmentally sustainable, ecological, and responsible practices at all times.
Harmony with Health
The foundation of any product is its ingredients, and Desert Essence believes in using only the best to create high quality natural products that also deliver a wonderful, healthy beauty experience. Desert Essence wants their products to always work in harmony with your body; for this, you should never have to wonder what’s in them. All Desert Essence ingredients are clearly labeled on the product and their website for your knowledge.
Better Practices Make Perfect
Desert Essence strives every day to ensure both their products and their practices reflect the serious commitment their 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.
Green Through & Through
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.
Animals are Beautiful
Desert Essence is excited and proud to have been certified by Leaping Bunny. Desert Essence as a company and as people do not believe in animal testing of any of their products or ingredients used in making them.
