Who We Are

Who We Are

Our Mission

We believe that the best things to put in and on your body are derived from the natural world around us. We create products using clean essential oils that are powerful and effective, and most importantly, are safe and nourishing for the skin. 


 We believe that maintaining healthy skin goes far beyond the face alone, and that the other 90% of us--the skin on our bodies--deserves to indulge in products that are clean and effective. While durable, the skin on our bodies is still complex and vulnerable to outside stressors, and requires unique care that’s at once functional and multi-faceted.

Founder Story

Esker was launched in 2018 by Shannon Davenport. After a decade of working in New York City as a trend forecaster, where she helped major corporate brands shape their identities based on her research across beauty, design, art, and consumer trends, she decided to launch Esker as a way to act on her own ideas and build the brand she wanted to see in the world. She knew she wanted to create a brand with integrity and honesty as its cornerstones, and to make clean, safe products that nourish the body and elevate the way we care for it.


As she discovered the benefits of plant-based beauty and bodycare, she fell in love. She enrolled at the New York Institute of Aromatherapy where she received her certification in aromatherapy and became a NAHA Aromatherapy Advocate. She soon realized that the beauty industry didn’t seem to be taking the clean movement seriously, and that bodycare was consistently an afterthought. Around the same time, she became pregnant with her first child and became even more aware of her body and its need for a product that was safe to use while pregnant, filler-free, non-greasy, and--most importantly-- relied on the power of plants to nourish skin. 


Esker was born right around the same time as Shannon's little one, and she introduced the line with three custom-crafted body oil formulas aimed to celebrate the diversity and power of essential oils, and to function as a necessary step in any body care ritual. She pulled from a versatile range of plants to create a restorative, clarifying, and firming oil, each one carefully formulated with responsibly-sourced ingredients to nourish skin from head to toe. 


By leveraging high quality, natural essential oil formulations that are beneficial to the skin, Esker aims to transform simple body care routines into meditative rituals that heal, restore, and hydrate skin. 


Esker is carefully crafted in the US. Our family operated business was created in Los Angeles and the brand is now based in Austin.   

Esker Products Contain Everything You Need, And Nothing You Don’t.

There’s lots of conflicting information that permeates the beauty industry. From deciphering between what’s clean and what isn’t and how products are made, it can be difficult at times to even understand what exactly goes into the products we purchase. Essential oils and botanical ingredients are no strangers to skepticism and even controversy within the skincare and bodycare worlds, but oftentimes essential oils are deemed only “bad” or “good”, and we miss the bigger picture of learning how to use the right oils in the right way. 


 We are committed to clarifying the often murky information surrounding essential oils, and we believe the best way to educate on their benefits is through making products that are clean, filler-free, and effective. We believe in the simple power of plants and in the wisdom of the women who have relied on bodycare rituals for centuries. We want to share that with our community so that each of you can make informed decisions about how you care for your body.
