desert skincare ingredients

 

“I understand my botanical, where it comes from, how its harvested, what it will do, and more importantly,             what it doesn’t do.”

 

 

Natural and essential oils, pure plant hydrosols, and other plant derived substances are well suited for skincare, and more trusted as effective alternatives to synthetic substances. All plant based ingredients will interact with the natural functions of our body. With this in mind, we strive to ensure you receive only exclusively organic, genuine, skin-specific ingredients without added unnecessary botanicals, fillers, fragrance, foreign synthetic compounds or preservatives.
