      Pure vegetable glycerine, made from certified sustainably sourced palm and palm kernel oil.

      Our take on palm oil: we do actively try to avoid products that are produced from palm oil sources but sometimes it just isn't possible. Therefore at a minimum, any products containing palm oil must be from certified sustainably sourced palm oil. Sustainably sourced palm oil may still be a better option than other alternatives, which although won't carry the stigma that palm oil does, can still be farmed and produced unsustainably - in some cases in an even less sustainable manner than palm oil itself. The problem isn't palm oil, it is the way in which unethical producers farm it. The way we see it, supporting certified sustainably sourced farmers will help change the way this product is farmed, leading to better environmental policies, while still supporting the communities that depend on palm farming.

      • Shopping online is much like shopping at a brick and mortar store. When shopping with Essentially Natural you can simply 'Add to Cart' your selected items and quantities and 'Check Out' when ready. During the checkout process you can list your delivery address details (if you haven't created an account already), then choose your preferred delivery method, then select your preferred method of payment.
        • To add products to your cart, either use the categories to search for items, or use the search bar. Once you have found what you want, simply click on our gold 'Add to Cart' button to add any products to your shopping cart.
        • You can click on your trolley icon at any time to view items in your cart and be taken to the checkout page.
        • On the cart page you'll see an overview of the products in your cart. You can add or remove quantities or remove items as desired. The shopping cart will immediately update.  
        • Checkout is completed in 3 simple steps:
          1. 'Sign In' to your account, or 'Create an Account' or 'Checkout as a Guest' if this is the first time you're shopping with us. There are many advantages to creating a customer account; primary among these is ease of use of our shop in future, including tracking your order progress. However checking out as one time guest simply entails registering your delivery details.

    youthful glow

    I'm 33 and have have fairly dry skin (at least naturally) So using this as a primer for my base is amazing because it doesn't allow the makeup to penetrate the pours but rather penetrates the pours and then you put your base on top. Perfect to give that natural looking glow too, that youthful shine :) What I will say is that if you have oily skin - I don't think this is for you as it is a bit sticky/shiny. But dry or combination skin, yes! Also - if I'm at home and with my dogs - I play with them a lot - I don't use this as dirt from the dogs sticks to my face - but like I said, as a primer - perfection

    Great product, great service

    My son suffers from Ichthyosis Vulgaris and we have tried many expensive lotions to control his condition but the most cost-effective method that really works well is to mix the Essentially Natural Vegetable Glycerine with water 50/50 and use it on his skin after showering.
    The service that Essentially Natural gives is also outstanding, the product was packed very well and shipped promptly.
    You have a repeat customer.
