after many months in the making, it is with great pleasure that I share updates to the dunkle line up.
upon deep reflection towards the end of 2021, at a time when I had just come back from maternity leave & started my journey as a working mom, I realised changes needed to be made to further align our business model to our values of simplicity & sustainability.
the major one first, it is with gratitude that we say goodbye to our beloved lipsticks. the decision comes from the honest truth about the complex packaging, rigorous recycling process, & time-intensive manufacturing required for moulding small-batch lipsticks. we toast to our first dunkle product, launched in 2014 at our first birthday, named after beloved places around the world, & remember the joy each shade brought to long lunches, dinner dates, & special celebrations (including the Grammys in 2018!).
it is with this space that we focus on our core purpose of creating natural balmy skin. our best-selling balm foundations now feature nourishing Queensland harvested olive oil to create that just-got-back-from-holidays look with ease. both skincare cult favourites, the face balm & face oil, now feature new calming organic Bulgarian rose otto & are housed in handsome, sustainable packaging.
adding to the skincare line up, we welcome in the new cleansing oil. a gentle yet deep cleanser to work in harmony with our hand-crocheted Queensland cotton face cloths. features our favourite nourishing Queensland olive oil alongside rich organic castor oil. simple to apply & massage around the face for a gentle, deep cleanse. doubles as a foundation brush cleanser too, win win.
colour lovers rejoice, it is with great joy we introduce the new face rouge. this multi-purpose product adds subtle warmth to lips, cheeks, & eye lids for a relaxed, summery glow. 6 months in development, 10 r&d batches, universal terracotta shade for all skin tones, housed in easily recyclable aluminium packaging, made with Queensland harvested olive oil, new organic Bulgarian rose otto, & our signature earthy pigments. we are beyond excited with our new beauty.
with that, there is a product price increase to reflect the rapidly increasing costs of raw materials & operations across the world. this year marks 9 years of dunkle which is all because of your ongoing support, thank you. I feel incredibly lucky to grow my brand with you each year, I hope you enjoy the new dunkle line up.
