Meet The Maker
Natural Skincare Formulator & Founder of d'still
"d’still is my poem to Mother Nature, a thank you for allowing me to harness the real and powerful medicine the earth has to offer, to create a potent, natural skincare collection and to encourage a slower, more mindful approach to self-care/self-love. When we take the time to be present, to be still and breathe deeply, we encourage a reconnection to the earth and to our true selves. We come to better understand our bodily needs and are able to make more mindful decisions to help nurture and heal the body. Reconnection to the earth and to the self is central to the work I do. It offers relief and release from the internal stresses that are the cause for so many of our modern day ailments.”
“When you distill a plant or a flower, you get down to its very essence. d'still prompts and inspires a route back to the essence of our beings through the power of nature and the ritual of applying skincare.”
- Ula Blocksage, Founder, d’still
d’still was born of Ula’s personal pursuit to heal her skin and to reconnect with herself and with nature. Having struggled with anxiety and with a variety of skin concerns, including hormonal acne and dermatitis, Ula embarked on a healing quest to develop a results-driven, 100% natural skincare range that would provide the physical and visible results she was looking for.
Deep down Ula had always known that turning to nature was what was needed to heal her skin, and over time became more and more aware that the same was to be true for her physical and mental wellbeing. Ula became a qualified Herbalist, Holistic Facialist and certified Organic Skincare Formulator and after 7 years of research, hard work and dedication, the dream of d’still was realised.
At the heart of all Ula does is her commitment to helping others achieve happy and healthy skin, develop lasting skincare/self-love rituals and find inner calm and reconnection. She is passionate about the environment, committed to sustainability, ethically sourcing and developing trusting relationships. When not crafting her potent range of luxury skincare essentials, Ula can be found exploring nature, swimming in the sea, practising yoga and spending time with loved ones.
