Calculation Breakdown:

Each product has individual impact-based metrics that correspond to each of the five following categories.

  • Environmental Impact
  • Labor rights
  • Animal rights
  • Community impact
  • Product Composition

A product can score 20 possible points in each category for a total of 100 points. Point distribution is based on how many metrics/certifications are met for each category. For each metric:

  • If a product meets the requirement, it will positively impact its total score.
  • If a product does not meet the requirement, it will negatively impact its total score.
  • If a metric is unrelated to the product, it is factored out of the calculation and has a neutral impact on its total score.
Where You Come In:

If you have set your My FIG Values in your account settings, our base FIG Value score will be joined with your FIG Values preferences to calculate a personalized weighted score. If you care more about one impact category over another, those associated criteria will play a larger part in determining the final My FIG Values score.

Our goal is to create a scoring system that helps you better see how different products match up to the values you care about! Be sure to set up your FIG Values preferences here.

Our Story

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.

Using natural ingredients, like Tea Tree, Jojoba and Argan Oil, our products refresh and renew, without all the unnecessary additives.

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. 

This results in 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.

Our Certifications

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.

Non-GMO Project

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.

Non-GMO NSF

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.

USDA Organic

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. 

Leaping Bunny

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.

RSPO

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.

Vegan 

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.

Gluten-Free

We know that food allergens are a serious concern, so we’ve formulated most of our products to be gluten-free.

FAQs

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 that you review the ingredient list of each product before you use them.

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 bringing the dirt back into the hair. Our conditioners range from 4.5 - 6.0.

Yes. Desert Essence is a Country Life Vitamins, LLC brand.
