"I would be more than happy to RAVE about your products. The Desert Nectar and Oil are truly incredible and I use them daily."

Dear Friends,

We are excited to announce that we have outgrown our beloved lab facility! The beautiful pharmacy adjacent to our Wellbeing space will now become our research and development site.
This gives us an opportunity to work within a new, state of the art, highly ethical lab environment and team. It also means that we are able to reformulate some of our star products to bring you an even cleaner, most cutting edge organic skincare available in the world today.
During this time some of your favorites will not be available for purchase off the website, but if there is something you cannot live without - let us custom blend it for you .
Please email us directly at and we will do our best to blend and ship to you as quickly as we can.

Stay tuned for the upcoming launches!

With love,

Patricia & MDSS.

What our customers are saying about us.

Nourishing oil delivers!!! The perfect name for this oil would surely be nourishing oil because that is exactly what it does. Every time I use it I can feel my skin letting out a big sigh of relief. Truly one of my favorite oils for daily use as it’s not too heavy. Feels clean, and leaves my skin feeling smoother and happier than before. I recommend it to everyone.

“I have become very fond of the Mojave Desert Skin Shield products. I suffer from a skin disease (Darier's disease) that has no cure. One can only find relief with different creams or prescriptions. My face is reddened, super sensitive, dry, and most products seem to sit on top of my skin. I am using the Protective mist, Element toner, Desert Nectar serum and the Replenishing cream. I also use the Element Cream cleanser and the Earth Minerals Honey mask. My skin is really happy and soothed with these products. I also like that the products are handmade and super fresh.”

Sharon R., Santa Barbara, CASkincare Customer

A friend gifted me your wonderful hand salve. The quality of the product is very pure and the scent is truly evocative of the desert. I love it beyond. I was so impressed, I asked Patricia if she could put together a custom lotion for my sister who has recently been struggling with new and serious psoriasis condition and she cannot tolerate much on her sensitive skin. Patricia not only created a special item but put together a wonderful basket. My sister loves all the products and they have been very soothing to her.

Love love love!!! When you use MDSS products you will want to upgrade your whole skincare routine! You can feel the thoughtful detail and careful crafting that was poured into each product using all natural ingredients. I don’t want to use anything else! MDSS has created a real change in the way I take care of my skin and it’s overflowing into the way I live my life. If we all lived with this kind of intention, we really could change our world.
