Mojave Desert Skin Shield

Organic Chaparral Protective Mist 2.0 oz


badge icon badge icon

Native to the deserts of the Southwest, chaparral has been a hero ingredient in both modern and ancient self care. Also referred to as creosote, this bush is a warrior plant that survives scorching summer highs and wintery spells alike, thriving amidst rocky, rough terrain. Rich in polyphenols, and with strong adaptive and antioxidant properties, chaparral has been used as a topical sun protectant and natural resilience booster for thousands of years. With an herbal, earthy scent and non greasy yet luxuriously protective texture, it acts like a buffer between your skin and the environment and helps your skin adapt to it whether you’re in the desert, city or by the ocean. Fortified with desert adaptive rosemary, calendula, lemon balm, rose and lavender, it doesn’t leave residue and pairs well with cream, oil or foundation alike.

There is little that compares to the sheer beauty and magic of a desert rainfall. At Mojave Desert Skin Shield, we aim to encapsulate this energy within our mist formula. This blend of hydrosols and nourishing oils is excellent for quenching even the driest, most parched skin. Organic Chaparral Protective Mist is reminiscent of desert summer showers; a refreshing component in any skincare routine.

Gently spray the face to use as a toner after cleansing, and as a moisturizing mist throughout the day.

Love love love!!! When you use MDSS products you will want to upgrade your whole skincare routine!

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



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



I love this product! It smells so nice and makes my skin radiant. Thank you!



I purchased a few of your products and really love them. The smell is intoxicating, which is a great way to first experience them. My favorite is the Nourishing Oil. It is so lush and comforting at the same time. And I use the Calming Mask on a weekly basis. It is a ritual for me. Your products are really special and they transport me to the desert - one of my favorite places - every single time I use them.

Desert Skin Shields Nursing Oil is a daily essential for me. Since living in the desert nothing ever seemed to absorb deep enough to give me true moisture for my face. Until I was introduced to this product! Not only does it sink deep into my skin but leaves it feeling silky and glowing all day. What I love about it is l can not only use it for my skin but I have also found to love it as a hair oil as well. It smells great and puts moisture into my hair without leaving it greasy like many other hair oils do. This product is truly everything!

"Thank you for your follow up- I appreciate it! The products did indeed arrive safely and they have been great additions to my skincare routine. My skin is definitely getting healthier and more hydrated as I continue to use them."

“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.”



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.

Nourishing oil

Nourishing! That’s exactly how it feels when I go to use my Skin Shield oil. I usually apply mine in the evening on clean skin, and I get a sense of luxury and self-love when I pour a little into my palm. The moment I take in the holistic aroma it deepens my breath, and I immediately feel more grounded. The oil absorbs deeply into my skin, giving me a natural glowing appearance that I love. I can’t live without it. I recommend it to all my sisters and friends!
