Are their products 100% Vegetarian?
All their products are 100% vegetarian.

Are all their products Vegan?
While all their products are 100% vegetarian, not all are vegan. The Organics line is 100% vegan. Although several of thier products have small amounts of beeswax and honey in their formulas, no animals are ever harmed to get these ingredients.

Are their products Gluten Free?
Most of their products and all of their Organics line are Gluten Free. Please refer to packaging to determine if product is gluten free or not.

What is the shelf life of DE Products?
Most of their products have a 3 year shelf life.

Producct Packaging

Is the packaging recyclable? BPA free?
All their tubes, bottles, and caps are recyclable and free of BPA. Refer to packaging for recyclability information. For example, in the Organics line, the tubes are #2 HDPE, while the caps are #5 PP.

What is the difference between their different Tea Tree Oils?
Their Tea Tree Oils vary based on how they are grown and harvested. All are subject to the highest quality standards possible, including terpinen-4 levels of 38+ and low cineole levels of less than 3%.

Their 100% Australian Tea Tree Oil is grown and harvested conventionally. Their growers are certified under the Code of Practice that sets guidelines for Tea Tree production and quality. This oil is steam distilled and no chemicals are used in the process. Sustainable practices are used, including use of solar energy, state of the art irrigation, and minimal pesticides.

Their Eco-Harvest Tea Tree Oil is grown on an environmentally sustainable, ecologically responsible plantation that is aligned with a USDA Organic operation, but is NOT USDA certified.

Their Organic Oil is USDA certified and grown under the most environmentally sustainable, ecological, and responsible practices. No chemicals, pesticides, or herbicides are used on the farm, which is surrounded by protected government land. Rain water is used instead of an irrigation system, cows are used to graze and control weeds and grasses, and a wood-fired burner is used to steam distill the oil.

Is their Tea Tree Oil steam-distilled?
Yes, their tea tree oil is steam-distilled, and no chemicals are used in the process.

What is the chemical composition of our Tea Tree Oil?
Tea Tree Oil is made up of over 300 chemical compounds. The most important of these are Terpinen-4, which is responsible for antiseptic action, and cineole, which can be responsible for skin irritation. They require our tea tree oils to have Terpinen-4 levels of 38% and over, which is well above industry average. The cineole levels are kept low at less than 3%, which are well below industry average.

How should Tea Tree Oil be used?
Tea Tree Oil should always be diluted with water, a carrier oil, or other liquid before applying to skin. Test on a patch of skin before applying. Avoid getting into eyes. Review product instructions and warnings before use.

Is the 100% Pure Jojoba Oil cold-pressed or chemically extracted?
Their Jojoba Oil is cold-pressed and no chemicals are involved in the extraction process.

Will refrigerating my Jojoba Oil extend the shelf life?
The shelf life of their Jojoba Oil is 3 years. Storing it in the refrigerator can extend its shelf life by as much as 1 year. Please note that the oil will solidify when exposed to cold, but will return to liquid at room temperature, without affecting the quality of the oil.

What are some of the uses of Jojoba Oil?
Jojoba Oil has many useful applications. It can be used as a deep conditioning treatment for hair, skin moisturizer, or even as a shaving prep.

What is the difference between the Organic Jojoba Oil and the Non-Organic Jojoba Oil?
Organic Jojoba Oil is certified by the USDA Organic as meeting strict ingredient and processing standards, including no use of pesticides, fungicides, and any other chemicals. The conventional Jojoba Oil is extracted without any chemicals, but is not certified under the USDA organic standard.

Can I use any Organics shampoo on color-treated hair?
For color-treated hair, we recommend using the Italian Red Grape Shampoo and Conditioner, which were specially formulated to protect against sun damage and fading. Please avoid using any shampoo or conditioner with Tea Tree Oil, as that may lighten hair color. If you color your hair and the color comes out too dark, a Tea Tree Replenishing Shampoo Therapeutic and Conditioner can help lighten the color.

Does the wax in the Tea Tree Dental Tape contains any soy, corn or gluten?
No, it is free of soy, corn, and gluten.

Do your toothpastes and mouthwashes contain flouride?
All therir dental care products are fluoride-free.

Are the Tea Tree Oil Cleansing Pads and cleansers pH balanced?
Their pads and cleansers help to pH balance your skin. The skin, especially if it has problems, is slightly acidic. Their cleansers run slightly alkaline so they can help pH balance the skin.

Does the sunscreen contain nanoparticles?
No, they do not use or allow any of their vendors use nanoparticles.

Does the deodorants contain aluminum?
No, their deodorants do not contain aluminum.

I have severe allergies. Can they tell me what is in their "proprietary blend of essential oils"?
They are not able to disclose the exact blend of all natural essential oils and extracts used in their products. However, if you are allergic to a particular ingredient, please contact them and they can let you know if the product contains that.

Are your products nut-free?
Most of their products are nut-free. However, they recommend you review the ingredient list before you use any Desert Essence product.

What products contain soy?
Their pure oils, most of their facial skin care and Organics products do not contain soy. Please refer to packaging to determine if product contains soy or not, or check the ingredients online.

What are the following ingredients derived from?

  • Vegetable Glycerin — derived from coconuts
  • Glyceryl Stearate — derived from coconut and palm
  • Cetyl Alcohol — derived from coconut
  • Potassium Sorbate — derived from fruit
  • Grain Alcohol — derived from corn

What is Titanium Dioxide?
Titanium dioxide is a naturally occurring mineral that helps block harmful UVA and UVB rays. In fact, most sunscreens on the market today contain some amount of titanium dioxide or zinc oxide.

What is Resveratrol used for?
Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant derived from red grapes as well as certain plants. It is believed to have strong skin and hair benefits.

What are Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)?
Natural AHAs come from citrus or other fruits. They work by exfoliating and cleansing the skin, causing surface skin cells to slough off to reveal clear, radiant skin.

Do the Organics products contain fragrance (parfum)?
They use the international standard INCI to list their ingredients. The INCI standard requires the words "fragrance (parfum)" be added to the label when extracts and oils are used, even if they are all natural. Please know that all their fragrances—or blends of extracts and essential oils—meet all guidelines set forth by the Natural Product Association (NPA).

    This face wash is gentle like it says, but that is it. My face does feel as cleans as it does when I use their Sea Kelp face soap. I think I might use this soap to clean my make-up brushes. But as far as a face wash, it's a no go for me.

    I recommend this product!
    This product works for my adult acne prone combination skin with great results. I use it with my Clarisonic face brush and it suds up nicely, and my face feels very soft and clean afterwards! When one has oily/combination/acne prone skin it is very important not to strip one's skin of it's own natural oils as it will just produce more and/or leave one with awful dry peeling skin and oily! I haven't had any breakouts since I have been using this for a month or more, so I am definitely pleased. I alternate between this and the Thoroughly Clean Face Wash. I plan on purchasing this again.

    I recommend this product!
    I wanted a gentler face wash since my skin gets red and dry in the winter, but still breaks out around my period (thanks Mother Nature!) I LOVE this stuff. Not only does the somewhat citrusy scent wake my up in the morning, but it cleans my skin without drying it out while helping control breakouts.

    I recommend this product!
    I really like the smell and texture of this product. It seems very clarifying. I have dry, sensitive skin. Unfortunately, this product makes my face too dry when I use it. I use it on my back and neck now instead and I think it does well to keep my skin clear.

    nice luxurious lather and the feeling of naturally clean!
