  • It is always a good idea to patch test a new skincare product, especially if you have sensitive skin. For all DU NORD SKIN CARE products, a little goes a long way! Products are best applied to damp skin. Use products within six months. Store in a dry place away from heat and light.

    FORMULATED TO HELP PROTECT THE SKIN AGAINST DAILY OXIDATIVE DAMAGE CAUSED BY SOLAR RADIATION, POLLUTION AND OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL STRESSORS

    ALPINE Emulsion is a light hydrating and moisturizing cream especially formulated with ingredients rich in phytochemicals that may help to protect against the harmful effects of solar radiation and pollution. Note: It is not a sunscreen. 

    Remove protective cap. Dispense into clean hands. Massage gently into damp skin. Replace protective cap.

    Note: We use Miron Glass to provide an inert and environmentally responsible container and to improve ingredient preservation. However, product will adhere to the bottle's interior surfaces. When it appears to be empty, gently tap the bottle on a hard surface to dislodge product. 

    Avec une nouvelle produit pour soins de la peau, c’est toujours une bonne idée de faire un test épicutané, particulièrement si vous avez la peau sensible. Pour tout les produits de DU NORD SKIN CARE, un petit quantité va suffit. Les produits sont plus efficaces s’ils sont appliqués sur la peau humide. Utiliser les produits dan les prochains six mois. Garder les produits dans un endroit sec, loin de la chaleur et de la lumière.

    FORMULÉE POUR AIDER À PROTÉGER LA PEAU CONTRE LES DOMMAGES OXYDATIFS CAUSÉS PAR LE RAYONNEMENT SOLAIRE, LA POLLUTION ATMOSPHÉRIQUE, ET AUTRES AGRESSEURS ENVIRONNEMENTAUX

    L'Émulsion ALPINE est une crème légère hydratante spécialement formulée avec des ingrédients riches en composés phytochimiques qui peuvent aider à se protéger contre les effets néfastes du rayonnement solaire et de la pollution. Noter: Ce n'est pas un écran solaire.

    Retirer le cap de protection.

    Répartir un petit quantité sur les mains propres. Masser doucement sur la peau humide. Remplacer le capuchon de protection.

    Note: Nous utilisons en verre violet Miron Glass pour fournir un conteneur inerte et responsable de l'environnnement et pour aider la conservation de l'ingrédients. Cependant, le produit adhèrera aux surfaces intérieures de la bouteille. Quand la bouteille semble vide, tapotez doucement sur une surface dure à déloger le produit.

Testimonials

Having tried the products for the last week, I am overwhelmed by the beauty of my skin. I am 71 years old, and have always taken care of my skin. However, I recently have developed rosacea and struggle to keep it under control. Using DU NORD SKIN CARE products has been a big help. Not only has my inflammation decreased, but my skin is supple and even glows.

– Gayle S.

As a devout user of DU NORD SKIN CARE products since their inception, I am delighted with the new line. PRAIRIE Serum has a wondrous feel, a lovely scent and does even more wonders for my skin. That, along with MARITIME Cleanser, VALLEY Lotion and the new ALPINE Emulsion formulation (when it is ready), will likely be my go-to skin therapy routine.

– joanne s.

I love the new products and am so happy to have them and treat myself every morning. I really like the combination of PRAIRIE, MOUNTAIN, and TAIGA on my face—that works wonderfully for my skin. And now having VALLEY for my neck, décolleté and arms, it can’t be better.

– Karla L.

I had the good fortune to have been introduced to the DU NORD SKIN CARE line when it was first launched and was hooked early on. The new, evolved line is even more impressive. My current favourites are the improved PRAIRIE Serum , which is silken on the skin and TAIGA, a rich, nourishing cream that my face craves during the harsh dryness of winter. I also enjoy the STREAM Mist as an occasional treat, using it as a delightful refresher mid afternoon, or in the evening. Night time is for rest and restoration, when I use the BOREAL Emulsion and TUNDRA Oil, which leave my skin feeling refreshed and sated. I confess to being addicted; I have told myself several times to stop in the past, but I can’t hold out for long. I love the scents, the application of the products on my face and of course, the wonderful way that DU NORD SKIN CARE leaves my skin looking and feeling.

I have been a confirmed fan of DU NORD SKIN CARE for several years now, and I don’t want to live without MARITIME, PRAIRIE or ALPINE. Now there’s a new “can’t live without” : VALLEY! The Canadian climate and home heating have wreaked havoc on my skin, but after many years that is no more, all due to the wonderful new VALLEY Lotion. I’m hooked!

– Malcolm N.

I work with product design focussing on healthy materials and products made for purpose. That’s beyond sustainability, which is usually describing something around us. But skin care is very personal—the skin being our largest organ. Knowing how much stress our skin, especially the face, is exposed to every day, I’m especially appreciative of the deep science approach Ursula has taken to create the DU NORD SKIN CARE line, and her constant, tireless search for additional benefits she can deliver with her products to make us look our very best! This is evident from the tweaking she has done to the new line, and I love that you don’t really need to buy and use the whole line to see effects. I’m a fond user of the MOUNTAIN Gel Cream, but especially in the winter I also like the luxurious feel the TAIGA Cream gives me. It’s great that she has switched to a wide mouth jar for that, so I can get to every last bit of goodness ;)
