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 our ingredients and the inspiration for how we bring our products to you. Drawn from nutrient-rich desert botanicals revered in native cultures for their healing properties, our naturally effective products work in harmony with your body to soothe, nurture, and restore.
We strive every day to ensure both our products and our practices reflect the serious commitment we make to the health of our planet.
To support sustainability, we use natural and organic ingredients from around the world. We support 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 our raw materials or our finished products.
We offset 100% of our electricity annually by purchasing energy credits, by printing all our brochures on paper recycled from chopsticks, and by doing the simple things like turning off the lights when leaving any office or room.
Desert Essence was founded in 1978 to promote the countless benefits of Jojoba Oil & Aloe Vera. We went on to become the first company to introduce Australian Tea Tree Oil to the United States market. Since then, we have expanded to include natural and organic beauty care products specifically formulated to improve the lifestyles of today’s most health-conscious consumers. As we discover more natural ingredients, our products will continue to evolve. We look forward to bringing their benefits of healing, beauty, and renewal to your life, and to the life of the world we all share.
