Introducing Dermalogica

While beauty fads may come and go, great skin is always in fashion. We’ve seen our fair share of skincare fads in the past couple of years (hello, gold karat face masks), and while some of them have been good, we do appreciate a no-fuss approach to skincare. Which is exactly why we love Dermalogica so much.

Dermalogica is a skincare range founded in 1986 by Jane Wurwand, a British skin therapist who moved to the United States. Wurwand was surprised to see that most beauty products in the US focused on beauty rather than skin health, and that most skin therapists were not as knowledgeable as they should have been. She decided to open her own skincare institute for licensed skin therapists to get extra training and advice. Wurwand then decided to create her own skin care line, as she was still unable to find products that fit the standard she was looking for. And so Dermalogica was born, out of Wurwand’s belief that skincare products should be free from irritants and actively improve skin health.

Today, Dermalogica is an award-winning range of targeted products that deliver results, and is sold in over eighty countries around the world. Each product is free from mineral oil, lanolin, and artificial colors and fragrances. Another plus? None of their products have been tested on animals.

Here are a couple of our favorite Dermalogica products, to get you started.

Dermalogica UltraCalming Cleanser – This is a super gentle cleanser that will not only cleanse, but also soothe sensitive skin or any skin that has been irritated by environmental factors, pollution, hormonal changes or allergies.

Dermalogica Powerfoliant – Kick dull skin and hyperpigmentation to the curb, and say hello to gorgeous, bright, even skin with this powder-liquid exfoliant. It’s hydroquinone-free and uses natural ingredients like licorice root extract to gently exfoliate.

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster – Anyone with dry, dehydrated skin will love this booster, which contains hyaluronic acid, panthenol and algae hydrate, to soften, and repair. You can even mix this with your usual moisturizer, or use it alone.

Dermalogica Ultra Rich Body Cream – Dermalogica hasn’t forgotten about your body! This super rich treatment cream contains hyaluronic acid and evening primrose oil, making it the perfect treat for dry winter skin.
