Essential Wholesale

Work with Essential Wholesale & Labs

Our mission is to help you grow your business.

We believe natural and organic products complement our hair and skin creating beautiful results without harming our environment. Through our small-batch processes, we provide exceptional natural and organic bath and beauty products to wholesale companies that sell under their brands, as well as DIY makers and crafters.

When you work with Essential Wholesale & Labs you can be confident you’re buying high-quality products and sustainably sourced ingredients. Whether you’re looking for ready-made products like USDA Certified Organic Hemp Acai Body Butter, bases such our Aloe & Jojoba Lotion, Essential Oils, Additives, Clays, or Melt & Pour products, you can trust them for yourself, your customers, your family, and your business. We strive to provide exceptional customer service, and to produce relevant recipes, blogs, and DIY videos about the products, ingredients, and business side of natural and organic skin care.

Our Sustainability Commitment

Sustainability is more than a buzzword at Essential. Our sustainability commitment shows in our business practices, responsible sourcing, massive solar power array, and our participation in UPS’s carbon neutral shipping program.

We carefully select all ingredients, taking into consideration sustainable harvesting and fair trade practices. We purchase organic ingredients whenever possible and we never test on animals. In fact, we are a Leaping Bunny Certified facility and all our products meet Leaping Bunny standards. Our vast selection of ingredients and products gives you the chance to pick a price point that suits your budget, without compromising on quality or environmental impact.

These efforts reflect our core values: every team member, every product, and every day. Working together with our customers, suppliers, and business partners, we continually strive to reduce our impact on the environment while building value for the future. Learn more on our blog.

Fact-Based Formulation

We approach natural and organic skin care from a fact-based; not fear-based; perspective. We follow trends, sure, but what we really do, is follow the science. Our formulators do research; they study, they test, and they experiment so we can confidently tell you, our customers, what will and won’t work, and most importantly, why.

Partner for the Future

At Essential, we believe in being good partner to our customers, and this amazing planet we call home. You’ll get weekly newsletters with industry news, special offers, how-to-videos, business tips and even an occasional rant about truth in labeling and the need for effective preservative systems.

We believe in going the extra mile with our customers. As this world moves to automated customer service, we still believe in customer care by having live conversations with real people. We provide safe shipping and handling instructions for severe weather conditions, and also provide safe storage. Our customer service team helps hundreds of customers a week find products that meet the objectives and budgets often creating a new combination unique to a single customer.
