If you know TULA skin care, you also know its founder Dr. Roshini Raj, the raven-haired, New York Medical School-trained gastroenterologist with flawless-looking skin and a passion for probiotics. Probiotics are all the buzz recently, so we reached out to Dr. Raj to find out some of her secrets.

Passion for Probiotics

“Probiotics are good-for-you-bacteria that are similar to the bacteria naturally found in and on our bodies,” Dr. Raj explained. “We usually think of bacteria as something harmful, but your body is full of good bacteria that helps it function properly. In fact, the average human has trillions of bacteria that live in our digestive tracts! According to the American Gastroenterological Association, probiotics are most commonly used to promote digestive health, but they’re one of the fastest growing areas of research right now.”


The TULA brand evolved through Dr. Raj’s career as a gastroenterologist. She began to research the use of topical probiotics on the skin, which is what led to the development of TULA’s probiotic-infused skin-care line. “TULA means ‘balance’ in Sanskrit, and the brand is about wellness for the mind, body, and soul. We’re continuously challenging ourselves to develop products that can impact your skin in a positive way.”

Your Daily Dose

The customer top-rated* TULA by Dr. Raj Daily Probiotic Supplement 30-Day Supply combines three different strains of probiotics of 10 billion CFUs (Lactobacillus Planterum, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG, and Bifidobacterium Infantis) as well as ceramides and vitamin C. In a national study, it was shown that a higher intake of vitamin C is correlated with lower likelihood of skin dryness and a wrinkled appearance.


“I wanted to give you something that would help you to feel beautiful both inside and out,” said Dr. Raj. “We just launched it on QVC a few months ago, and the reviews have been astounding.”
