SB 241, sponsored by Senator Linda Holmes (D-Aurora) and signed by Governor J.B. Pritzker on August 9, prohibits the import or sale of any cosmetic if the final product or any ingredient was tested on animals after January 1, 2020.
Last year, California became the first state to enact โ€œhumane cosmeticsโ€ legislation, followed by Nevada in June. Illinoisโ€™ new law provides additional incentives for cosmetics companies to invest in non-animal alternatives to help them stay competitive in a changing global market while sparing animals from painful tests.

Desert Essence Vegan Product List (2019)

This post may contain affiliate links.

Desert Essence is an affordable cruelty-free personal care brand offering an array of toothpastes, mouthwash, body wash, body lotion, face cleansers, and hair care products.

But, which of Desert Essence products are vegan?

Is Desert Essence Vegan?


Dessert Essence claims most (but not all) of their products are vegan and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Desert Essence does use beeswax and keratin in some of their products therefore they cannot be classified as a 100% vegan brand.

Please reference below for a list of Desert Essence vegan and non-vegan products.

In addition, you can easily spot which of their products are vegan as they are noted in the product description on their website.

But, if you’re like me and mostly shop for Desert Essence products in-stores, then this list is for you! I created this list of Desert Essence vegan products to help you shop while you’re on the go!

Besides buying Desert Essence at the drugstore and natural health food store, I sometimes will get my Desert Essence fix online and I found that iHerb has the best prices, not to mention, they also ship worldwide! Use code: FVH641 on iHerb to receive $5 off your first purchase!
