About Desert Essence
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, they became the first company to market Jojoba Oil. They then went on to introduce Tea Tree Oil to the US market.
Since then, they have 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, their 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.
Desert Essence's values are clear
Harmony with Nature
Just as nature is kind and giving to us, they strive to be kind and giving in return. The desert is both the source of their ingredients and a model of pristine balance and sustainability, where limited natural resources, if used responsibly, offer untold benefits. With this in mind, they extract their ingredients with environmentally sustainable, ecological, and responsible practices at all times.
Harmony with Health
The foundation of any product is its ingredients, and they believe in using only the best to create high quality natural products that also deliver a wonderful, healthy beauty experience. They want their products to always work in harmony with your body; for this, you should never have to wonder what’s in them. All their ingredients are clearly labeled on the product and their website for your knowledge.
Better Practices Make Perfect
They strive 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, they use natural and organic ingredients from around the world. They support a federation of Australian plantation farmers who have signed a pledge not to use any artificial pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides.
Green Through & Through
They offset 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. They as a company and as people do not believe in animal testing of any of their products or ingredients used in making them. They require all their ingredient suppliers to abide by this same principle. Animals are Beautiful.
Personal Care = Customer Care
Their business is personal. They value the trust you place in their company and their products. Everything they do—from reformulating their products to researching new ingredients to helping you choose the right skin care regimen—is done with your wellness and happiness in mind.
