MOJAVE DESERT SKIN SHIELD is a biodynamic skincare and clothing studio founded in Joshua Tree, CA by Patricia Vernhes.
Their self care products were originally created to detoxify, nourish, and protect all skin types against harsh elements; dry, air, wind and sun. They use only the highest quality organic and wild crafted medicinal oils and plant extracts in honor of ancient medicine and its people, whose grace and connection to the planet are so inspiring in today’s world.
Their clothing and bags are created and manufactured in limited editions by artisans in small cooperatives and studios using clean and sustainable materials and methods. They strive to streamline the production chain, pay fair rates for labor and talent, and work with those within their like minded community. This process helps put food on the plates of real people instead of feeding large corporations.
Their philosophy and formulas are deeply rooted in nature yet validated by science and continuous research, delivering results throughout the changing seasons.
