A few years ago, my stepfather Dr. Michael O. Stone and I set out to create a gentle / clinical skincare line with a simple goal - to give you your best skin in fewer steps. I had found, especially in the last decade that skincare was getting more complex and tough to fit into the busy lives many of us lead. As a product developer and home skincare maker with reactive skin, I wanted to create perfectly balanced formulas that are smart, clean and multitasking that could move anywhere your busy day would take you, post workout, travel and beyond.

With Ducalm, we wanted to demystify skincare and make things a lot easier, so we packed nourishing, advanced, skin-loving, powerhouse ingredients into fewer products. Great skin comes from balance and a healthy moisture barrier, so your skin can work better for itself. Our products are designed to support this process!

We have gone back to basics with naturally occurring substances and essences that are known to be neutral or calming to the multi-layers of our skin. Our products contain natural emollients, antioxidants and are anti-inflammatory and soothing organic compounds that are gently emulsified for ease of application and for excellent absorption.

Your skin is actually an organ, the largest one of all. It is made up of many layers, each containing various glands, nerves, and or blood vessels. Sebaceous (oil) glands produce the fatty acids that help to lubricate our skin and form part of the water barrier of the skin. The sweat glands, along with the skin blood circulation help to regulate body temperature. These functions are all important to overall health but are impacted on a continuous basis by some combination of activity, sun exposure, trauma, aging, illness, improper diet, smoking, excessive alcohol, depending on the person and their environment. Ducalm Skincare is my effort to continue to help people live a better life with fantastic skin.
