Essential Products

About Us

Essential was born out of our love for nature and the desire to use products that would not harm our skin or the environment.

Our products are created from pure natural source ingredients that nourish your skin without disrupting your body’s balance. They contain a high percentage of certified organic ingredients (some products even over 87%) and are made from 99.4% – 100% natural ingredients. The products that are 99.4% natural contain a small amount of preservative that is necessary to guarantee the safety, stability and quality thereof. This preservative is approved by ECOCERT in the manufacturing of organic skincare products.

Our formulations are safe for you and the environment and contain some of the most powerful natural actives available to deliver the maximum benefits to your skin. Our products are not tested on animals but on eager producers, friends and volunteers. Our formulations are free of harmful and toxic chemicals. We do not use animal or genetically modified ingredients, mineral oils, colour additives, synthetic fragrances or controversial preservatives.
