The Dermalogica Difference

The unique approach to skincare pioneered by Dermalogica is based on several important differences between Dermalogica and any other skin products

  • No Mineral Oil
  • No Lanolin
  • No Artificial Colours
  • No Artificial Fragrance
  • No S.D. Alcohol
  • No Formaldehyde
  • Non Comedogenic
  • Contamination-Free Packaging

No Mineral Oil

Mineral oil is a petroleum by-product which leaves a greasy film on the skin surface. Dermalogica uses lightweight, natural vegetable oils as alternative emollients.

No Lanolin

Lanolin is a wax derivative of sheep wool and can be allergy-causing and comedogenic. Dermalogica uses aromatic essential plant oils and silk proteins as moisturising agents.

No Artificial Fragrance

Companies add artificial fragrance to products to improve their smell. These can cause allergies and skin sensitivity. Dermalogica allows the herbal extracts and aromatic plant oils in the formula to determine the products’ unique fragrance.

No S.D. Alcohol

Specially denatured alcohols are used in many products to artificially dry the skin surface. These strip natural moisture from the skin and lead to excess dryness. Dermalogica uses naturally astringent herbal extracts and oil-absorbing clays to help treat excess oiliness in problem skins.

No Formaldehyde

Formaldehyde is a common preservative in many products. It can cause skin dryness and irritation. Dermalogica preserves its products with alternative preservative systems to ensure the safety of the products throughout their usage.

No Artificial Fragrance

Companies add artificial fragrance to products to improve their smell. These can cause allergies and skin sensitivity. Dermalogica allows the herbal extracts and aromatic plant oils in the formula to determine the products’ unique fragrance.

Non Comedogenic

Products may contain comedogenic ingredients which cause skin breakouts and acne. Dermalogica products are designed to be non-comedogenic and are suitable for acne-prone skin conditions. This is why they are recommended by dermatologists and used in their medical practices.

Contamination-Free Packaging

Products that are packaged in jars are easily contaminated with bacteria from the hands and the environment. Dermalogica packages its products in the most hygienic containers to avoid contact contamination during use.

Dermalogica is proud of its commitment to safe and effective skincare products and welcomes your comments and suggestions for further improvements.
