ABOUT THE DU’IT RANGE:
Are your DU’IT products made in Australia?

Who develops DU’IT products?
We do. We are a private company, owned and operated in Australia.
Are your products vegan?
DU’IT Skin Care upholds holistic principals but does not ascribe to a vegetarian or vegan philosophy. However our products (excluding Vitamin E Face Cream) do not contain animal or animal-derived ingredients. Our Glyceryl Stearate and Lactic Acid ingredients are derived from synthetic or plant extracts. The Urea active we use is also vegan.
Are your DU’IT products Cruelty Free?
DU’IT does not and has never tested its products, including our hand, foot and face creams on animals at any point in the product development or manufacturing process.
Are your DU’IT products gluten free?
No, as some of our products contain the natural Vitamin E ingredient. However if you have specific questions or concerns regarding gluten and the ingredients contained in our formulas, we recommend you consult your physician. Please refer to each ingredient listing on each page.
Are DU’IT dry skin products suitable for children under 12 years old?
Yes, DU’IT products are suitable for children’s use above 2 years of age. However, as children’s skin is generally more sensitive than adults’, we recommend you patch sample the product on their skin first before using. If any irritation occurs, stop usage immediately.
Are DU’IT products safe?
Yes! We formulate every product with ingredients that have been carefully researched and proven safe for topical, external use. Every batch of every product is tested to ensure it is free from microbial contamination. Formulas are also stability tested to ensure they have an effective shelf life.
Can I use DU’IT if I have sensitive skin?
Yes you absolutely can. In fact, our DU’IT skincare range is dermatologically tested to be safe for sensitive skin.
Do DU’IT formulas contain preservatives such as parabens, steroids, solvents, mineral oil or phenoxyéthanol?
No. We only use carefully selected substances in our products to guarantee the safest ingredients. All of our product formulations are free from drying alcohol, parabens, phenoxyethanol, phthalates, mineral oils, and propylene glycol.
Why do you use synthetics in your products?
Over time, we have found that a small number of low-hazard synthetic ingredients are essential to maintain the efficiency, and stability of a high-performance line. We strive to be as safe as possible while providing the most efficacious skin care available.
Can I use DU’IT if I have Eczema?
There is nothing in any of our DU’IT products that will cause your eczema any harm, but everyone has their own individual reactions, so we cannot make solid claims either way. Therefore we recommend that you patch test an area of your skin with the product, before using on a more frequent basis. We also proudly support the Eczema Association Australia. Although, our products have been proven to reduce hardened skin from eczema.
Are DU’IT products safe to use during pregnancy?
All of our products are safe to use during pregnancy or whilst breast feeding. However we advise all pregnant / breast-feeding women to consult their doctor before the use of any product. The detailed ingredient list will help the doctor decide whether a product can be used or not. All our products are developed utilising natural and / or organic ingredients, with safety and efficacy being top priorities. Moreover, our products pass all necessary patch / safety & efficacy tests that demonstrate their safety during consumer use; still, it is recommended to consult your doctor before start using a product.
Is the Urea that DU’IT uses in their creams safe for pregnancy?
While Urea is generally safe to use, it’s best you check with your doctor before using DU’IT products that contain urea while you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
Are DU’IT hand creams safe during pregnancy?
Our hand creams are safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding. We always recommend checking with your doctor or obstetrician before you use our products. Showing them a list of our hand cream ingredients will help with their decision.
Is DU’IT’s VE+ Vitamin E face cream safe for use while pregnant?
Our VE+ Vitamin E face cream is generally safe to use while pregnant, we do always recommend you consult your doctor before application.
Is your packaging environmentally friendly?
Yes, DU’IT strives to source products and packaging to be environmentally friendly, sustainable and recyclable. All of our are deemed fully recyclable.
What is the shelf life of DU’IT products?
Our DU’IT products have a shelf life of 4 years if remained unopened and sealed and stored below 25 degrees celsius.
The product I got says ‘Visible effects in 1 day’ on its packaging, which is different from the ones I previously got/the ones on your website:
You may notice that recent DU’IT packing design is slightly different. We are excited to announce that we started the transition to NEW packaging for our DU’IT range.
The new packaging design will give our entire range a more consistent look and feel on shelf, while providing enhanced functionality and additional brand identification components that enable you to choose products that are right for you. All DU’IT products will soon feature “Visible Effects within 1 day” and a ‘Money Back Guarantee” to enable our customers to shop with greater confidence.
As we sell through current stock in existing packaging and transition to new packaging, you will likely see both current and refreshed versions on shelf over the next two years. All our effective formulations will remain the same, so you can feel confident purchasing either.
To ensure that you are always purchasing authentic DU’IT products we suggest that you purchase from official authorised resellers.
What is the difference between Tough Hands and Tough Hands for Her?
DU’IT Tough Hands is our original best seller with anti-microbial properties, specially formulated for the most stubborn cases of chronically dry, rough, cracked, irritated and calloused hands. It works to seal cracks, replace lost oils, condition the skin and form a protective barrier to keep hands in top condition.
DU’IT Tough Hands for Her is scientifically formulated as a potent, hydrating hand moisturiser with anti-aging properties. Designed to guard against premature ageing, visibly brighten and condition skin, cuticles and nails and increase moisture levels with long-lasting hydration. Contains a powerful peptide blend that supports natural collagen and softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, panthenol for firming and niacinamide for skin elasticity. Its non-greasy protective barrier shields skin from harsh environmental stresses and neglect while locking in the skin moisture to keep skin highly hydrated.
What is the difference between Foot & Heel Balm Plus and Roll-on Heel Balm?
Firstly, both these products have different delivery systems and formulations. Foot & Heel Balm Plus, a foot cream containing 25% Urea, is a much more intense formula compared with the Roll On Heel Balm, a roll on gel emulsion system, which has 10% Urea content. For people looking for an intensive formulation we’d recommend our Foot & Heel Balm Plus which is specifically engineered to target severe and stubborn cases of dry, rough, cracked feet. Our Roll-On Heel Balm, while equally effective, is more suited for everyday maintenance. It has a much lighter texture and quickly absorbs without the need to use your hands – no mess, no fuss.
Both products are super hydrating, free from nasties and suitable for everyday use. You can choose the product based on your needs and skin conditions.
What is the difference between Tough Hands and Tough Hands Fragrance Free?
Tough Hands and Tough Hands Fragrance Free both provide the same function in terms of repairing, hydrating, softening and protecting hands. However Tough Hands Fragrance Free, contains no fragrance or natural botanical oils, which makes it every suitable for people who have extremely sensitive skin, eczema or those who are prone to irritants and allergens.
How do I choose the best anti-ageing hand cream?
The best way to choose an anti-ageing hand cream is to look for ingredients that are peptides, niacinamide/ vitamin B, vitamin A/ retinol, hydroxy acids or hyaluronic acid. For example, in DU’IT’s Tough Hands for Her range, we use niacinamide and peptides.
What is the difference between DU’IT VE+ Face Cream and other Vitamin E creams?
DU’IT VE+ Face Cream is enriched with the highest concentration of natural vitamin E @120iu/g (12%) = 6 times that of the standard Vitamin E cream. It helps keep skin soft, radiant and supple, whilst maximising the skin’s ability to retain moisture around the clock.
Did you know that if a product does not state the concentration of vitamin E levels its is very likely that that product contains extremely low levels of vitamin E.
Can you use DU’IT foot cream on your hands?
The skin on the soles of your feet is much thicker than elsewhere on your body. We don’t recommend the use of our Foot and Heel Balm on your hands. You will find that the formulation is to concentrated for use on hands, often leaving a thick white, sticky residue. Instead we highly recommend using our clinically proven Tough Hands hand cream as it contains the right percentage of actives to repair, moisturise and soften your hands.

Can you use DU’IT foot cream on your face?
We don’t recommend the use of our Foot and Heel Balm on your face. The ingredients in this product have heavier concentrations than our VE+ Vitamin E Face Cream, which could be too harsh for your delicate facial skin. DU’IT Foot and Heel Balm is only designed to be used on the feet. If you’d like to try both of our iconic products, try our Iconic Collection.
