What Danne says:
Over the years I have experimented with different cosmetic mediums and bases with the aim of achieving remedial effects for clients who suffered from acne or other skin anomalies. In the early years when I was a clinic owner I would often mix and match multiple cosmetics products and brands with other makeup ingredients in order to achieve a natural effect.
However when it came to recommending a specific makeup brand for my clients, I had nothing to offer them except to suggest water-based cosmetics or products that were low on mineral oils. It is exceedingly difficult to find cosmetic products that aren’t harmful or damaging to the skin or that work against skin revision theory and practice. This line of reasoning prompted me to consider developing my own range of cosmetics. As cosmetics and skin care are often considered to be two different business arenas, I put my cosmetics dream on the back burner for another day. I’m thrilled to announce that day has come.
Drawing on the experience of cosmetic industry great Tommy Parsons, Managing Director for DMK Cosmetics, DMK has now developed their own cosmetic range. It’s truly amazing what one can achieve when you start with the best people in the industry.
While at my age I should probably be looking down the road to retirement, I am proud to say that I have instead decided to set myself to the task of creating a cosmetics range that is truly of the highest caliber. To be able to say that with conviction gives me the thrill of a lifetime.

With a foundation that was literally created outside the box of established and formulated rules as guided by the chemists of today; Danné worked on formulating a primer that had to be as outside the box as the foundations were. It had to be. The last thing our highly pigmented, and advanced oil free formula needed was an oily, greasy, or oily-silicone based primer used by most everyone today. We also wanted to create a primer that did something more than just make your face feel smooth. Silicone by itself will do that smooth part, but we had to do something additional and special.
Crème Glace is made up of 3 high quality medical grade silicones, zinc oxide, pomegranate extract, and several other raw components. The silicone acts as a barrier. Like no other silicone-based primer, our silicone-based primer does a lot more. Our silicon is an extreme high quality of grade of medical silicones used for external and internal situations in the medical industry.
We add Zinc Oxide to the formula. This actually prepares the canvas by evening out skin tones, and placing a sheer, opaque layer on the skin. Your face actually looks healthy and refreshed to everyone. Zinc oxide has long been used because of its healing properties, but in the DMKC Crème Glace formula you only need a sheer layer in order to get the converge and professional makeup look you like. A sheer layer will reduce fine lines and wrinkles, even out some skin tones, and allow the DMK Premier Foundations to glide on to the face with ease. So, Crème Glace is not just a clear formula, but a primer and opacifier that works in conjunction with not only DMKC foundations, but with any cream foundation.
