what is dulj?
There’s no miracle potion, no magic pill, no product that will give you perfect skin. dulj is about decadence, about “excessive kindness” to oneself. It’s gentleness on your skin, but also powerful & natural ingredients that work. We don’t promise a magical formula, just deep, incredible caring for your skin.
Skin is the largest organ in your body. It’s your body’s first layer of defence against bacteria & environmental substances, as well as regulating the amount of water released into the atmosphere (transepidermal water loss); keeping it healthy & nourished is vital.
We believe in being gentle with your skin; nourishing it & caring for it. We want to keep it simple … we don’t believe in needing to use 20 different products on your skin. dulj uses only pure ingredients. No fillers, parabens, silicones, mineral oils, synthetic fragrances, preservatives, dyes or bleaches. We use organic where possible to ensure that the finished product is as natural as it can possibly get.
We don’t test any of our products on animals & never use ingredients that have been tested on animals.
why use oil cleansing?
To simplify it, there are two layers of your skin: the epidermis (outer layer) & dermis (inner layer).
The outer layer of skin is covered in dead skin cells which are there to protect the cells underneath & keep them from drying out.
The epidermis (outer layer) doesn’t have a direct blood supply – all the nutrients that feed these cells come from the underlying dermis. Cells are nourished & pushed upwards as new cells are being made. The outer layer of your skin is waterproof; therefore cleaning with water doesn’t accomplish much. This is where oil cleansing comes in…
The layer of oil on your skin is there for a reason so it’s vital not to strip it, or your skin will over-compensate by producing more oil & you could also aggravate your skin, causing redness & dryness.
