The Ageless Beauty Set from DHC Skincare

Olive Oil-Based Products

Fight oil with oil using DHC Skincare’s inventive and comprehensive line of products. The Japanese company takes its inspiration—and for many of its items, its primary ingredient—from virgin olive oil, which, with its natural supply of vitamins and antioxidants, can help restore and nourish skin. Also, since olive oil has an oxidation rate lower than the skin’s common oils, it can prevent those oils from causing blackheads and other blemishes.

DHC’s olive oil-based products, like those found in their bestselling Olive Oil Essentials Set, cleanse and moisturize, leaving pores clear and skin soft and radiant. DHC’s commitment to using only pure and natural ingredients means these products are especially good for those with sensitive skin. No unnecessary fragrances, coloring agents or preservatives, such as parabens, are used, making the products gentle, non-toxic and a balm to those prone to allergic reactions.

This is apparent in everything from the simple, soothing White Soap to the enriching Mineral Mask: these products are gentle, mild and calming. DHC also has a line of products for men, the toughest of whom still need some TLC every once in a while. We appreciate that the After Shave Lotion has such a delicate touch: lightly scented, it goes on cleanly and soothes without leaving any sort of residue, until you almost forget it’s there (which is exactly what we want). With container designs that, like the products themselves, are clean and unaggressive, selections from all areas of DHC’s line make elegant, thoughtful gifts — the perfect thing if you want to extend the proverbial olive branch.
