Dermalogica skin careDermalogica skin care is a simple, serious and unique skin care system that delivers effective results in the minimum amount of time. Dermalogica is the skin care system researched and developed by The International Dermal Institute. Known worldwide as the "professionals' choice," Dermalogica is founded on the belief that good skin care is not about pampering or luxury...any more than brushing your teeth or washing your hair is. Dermalogica skin care products is

Dermalogica's formulas have high standards for product performance. Using the finest ingredients available, such as essential oils and herbal extracts, all Dermalogica products are non-comedogenic and contain no mineral oil or lanolin, no irritating artificial colors or fragrance, and no S.D. alcohol or formaldehyde which can be drying. In addition, Dermalogica ensures that all ingredients are from eco-safe sources and are packaged in recyclable containers. Always cruelty-free, they do not test on animals.
The dermalogica product line was starteed in 1996 in response to the lack of results tested skin care products on the market. Jane Wurwand had a vision which was a product line without common irritants and the dermalogica brand was born. Today Dermalogica has a huge following throughout the world and is the prefered skin care system amongst thousands of professionals.
Dermalogica's story begins in 1986, when the founders of The International Dermal Institute (the postgraduate training facility for skin care professionals) decided to do something about the serious lack of results-driven products on the market.
Researched and developed by The International Dermal Institute, Dermalogica shocked the market by refusing to use artificial colors, synthetic fragrances, S.D. alcohol, lanolin or mineral oil – all of which were industry favorites due to their low cost, despite links to numerous skin problems that were well understood. They also went a step further, insisting that all Dermalogica skin care professionals had to meet the highest level of training and expertise, ensuring that consumers could get reliable consultations about their skin concerns without falling prey to the hype and faddism that dominates the skin care industry.
Dermalogica's commitment to professional skin care continues today with its no-nonsense packaging, emphasis on skin care education and dedication to formulating products that deliver results, not ridiculous claims. Today, Dermalogica addresses skin’s every need, and enjoys a cult-like following among celebs and Hollywood makeup artists as well as thousands of skin care professionals in the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa.
Jane, the founder, is the first to clarify, however, that great products are not enough. She refers to the experience of great skin care as “alchemy”, and the professionals who pursue it as her “tribe.” “The experience of being touched in a safe, non-threatening way is very powerful,” she says, “and very healing. I truly believe that what we do as professionals touches the well-being of our clients in a very deep way, far beyond making their skin feel and look better.”
From the beginning, the Dermalogica founders and the company's tribe-like following of users have consciously held themselves apart from the beauty industry. The Dermalogica company ethos was conceived around the health and well-being of body, mind and spirit; looking good is a pleasant effect of improved wellness. With this mindset, the Dermalogica brand has never been packaged or marketed with luxury or glamour in mind. Dermalogica offers that "Skin care is not pampering, any more than dental care or a shampoo is pampering. It is a basic part of grooming, self-care and basic hygiene."
Dermalogica is the most-selected brand among professional skin care therapists in the U.S.A. More than 3,500 skin care centers in the U.S.A. alone carry the line, with many thousands more in Europe, Asia and Australia. Dermalogica does not purchase advertising space or air time, preferring to gain awareness through word-of-mouth. Likewise, the Dermalogica brand is purposely not available in any of the usual retail venues (department stores, infomercials, drug stores), offered exclusively through professional skin care therapists.
Dermologica's skin care system includes the most innovative and highly effective formulations in the world.
