At Desert Essence, we believe you deserve to feel wonder-full.
Inspired by nature’s beauty and resilience, we offer products that nourish both body and senses.
It all began with a simple concept: Beauty is natural and Nature is beautiful.

We’re committed to harvesting nature’s best ingredients and ensuring that our ingredients are responsibly and sustainably sourced. Expect wonders as you discover nature’s finest ingredients sourced from around the world.
Sustainable Sourced Ingredients with Desert Roots
It’s no secret that organic ingredients are our passion, but that’s only half the story. We care deeply about how we source our ingredients, too.
All our ingredients come from suppliers who share our love and respect for the planet and all who inhabit it.
It’s Only Natural to Care.
Our purpose is to help the land, people and creatures that make life on Earth so incredibly rich. We work hard, with the help of people like you, to make a beautiful difference in this wonderful world of ours.
Love What’s Inside.
Step aside, synthetics. Plants have the best beauty secrets on Earth. Out of respect for your well-being, we source the finest plants and botanical extracts Nature has to offer. The result? An authentic and beautiful glow — from head to toe. Take delight in what’s inside your Desert Essence bottle—and take note of what stays out.
Empower Others With Your Purchase.
The ability to look beyond ourselves and advocate for others is one of the most beautiful things we can do. That is why we partner with organizations like Plan International USA, a girls’ rights organization working to end gender inequality around the world. 1% of your purchase of select oil blends goes to give girls in impoverished areas access to education, so they can build a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.
It’s not enough to say that we care, we show it through our actions.
How? By partnering with like-minded organizations and suppliers that honor the values we hold in common.
We partner with the Non-GMO Project to verify the ingredients in our dental care offerings and Jojoba Oils.
Non-GMO Project is a North American nonprofit organization dedicated to building and protecting a non-GMO food supply. When you see their seal of approval, you know that unbiased, rigorous and transparent non-GMO standards are met.
Using both North American and European non-GMO standards, NSF assures the integrity of non-GMO claims. The majority of our products already carry their seal of approval, and that number will only continue to grow.
Organic farming supports our planet and well-being, which is why we select USDA certified ingredients wherever possible. Several of our products are certified organic. Many of our ingredients are cultivated sustainably by caring farmers around the world.
Certified B Corp
As a certified B Corporation, we work for both the benefit of people and our planet. By meeting high standards of transparency, accountability and social/environmental responsibility, we’re creating a world that works for everyone.
Every product we make is certified cruelty-free through the Leaping Bunny Program, meaning no animal testing is involved. Leaping Bunny sets an internationally recognized, comprehensive standard for cruelty-free products, making compassion a simple and straightforward consumer choice.
We are proud to use 100% RSPO-Certified Sustainably Harvested Palm Oil in our bar soaps. This certification assures that our suppliers follow a strict, comprehensive set of ethical standards. By choosing RSPO-certified Palm Oil, you’re supporting rich soil, plant and animal diversity, and fair wages.
No Artificial Dyes or Fragrances
We prefer to play it safe. For this reason, you’ll only find natural plant colors and pure essential oils in your Desert Essence bottle.
Made in the USA with Globally Sourced Ingredients
Investing in the country where we live and work is important to us. Although we source our ingredients all around the world, we manufacture every product in the United States.
Most of our products are vegan or 100% contain small amounts of Beeswax, Honey and Keratin. To tell which products are vegan, look for the vegan icon on the bottle.
We know that food allergens are a serious concern, so we’ve formulated most of our products to be gluten-free.
Do you do animal testing on any of your products?
We don’t test any products or ingredients on animals, and require all our suppliers to do the same.
Are your products vegan?
While all our products are mostly plant-based, not all are vegan. Although several of our products have small amounts of beeswax and honey in their formulas, no animals are ever harmed. Refer to the Ingredients tab on each product detail page to determine whether or not a product is vegan.
Are your practices socially and environmentally responsible?
Our company philosophy is centered around making a positive impact in the lives of others and our planet. We are proud that our work has been acknowledged, and that we are a certified B-Corp Corporation.
Is the packaging recyclable or BPA free?
All our tubes, bottles, and caps are recyclable and free of BPA. Refer to packaging for recycling information. In the Organics line, the tubes are #2 HDPE, while the caps are #5 PP.
Do Your Products Contain Nuts?
Most of our products are nut-free. However, we recommend you review the ingredient list on product packaging, or the Ingredients tab on each product detail page, before you use any Desert Essence product.
I have severe allergies, what is in your "blend of essential oils?"
We are not able to disclose the exact blend of all natural essential oils and extracts used in our products. If you are allergic to a particular ingredient, please contact us and we can help you.
Do your Certified Organic products contain fragrance (parfum)?
We use the international standard INCI to list our ingredients. The INCI standard requires the words "fragrance (parfum)" on the label when extracts and oils are used, even if they are all natural. Please know that all our products meet all Natural Product Association (NPA) guidelines.
What are the pH levels of your shampoos and conditioners?
Our shampoos range between 6.0 - 7.5, which enables them to cleanse without redepositing the dirt back into the hair. Our conditioners range from 4.5 - 6.0.
Is Desert Essence affiliated with Country Life Vitamins?
Yes. Desert Essence is a Country Life Vitamins, LLC brand.
