"Our vision is clear – a product line free of common irritants and ingredients that could cause breakouts (including lanolin, SD alcohol, mineral oil, artificial colours and fragrances) that would improve skin health, and were only available from qualified skin therapy professionals.
As a brand, Dermalogica immediately upset the prevailing paradigm of beauty and glamour by classifying skin care as a health issue as opposed to a cosmetic concern. Just as we removed common irritants from the ingredient menu, Dermalogica also introduced a powerful new element into the brand identity: the specialised expertise of the professional skin therapist.
Then, as now, all our products are manufactured in the USA, we have never taken part in animal testing, and Dermalogica is sold only where professional consultation and professional treatments are performed by professional skin therapists. In just over 20 years, Dermalogica has become the number one choice of skin care professionals worldwide, prescribed more often than any other product available.
We’re far too interested in guiding you to a new level of skin health fitness! So, while our packaging may not be designed to colour-coordinate with your bathroom, you can always be sure that we’ve spent our time on delivering your skin the high-performance formulas it needs. Plus, we’ll never use common “beauty” ingredients like Mineral Oil, Lanolin, artificial colours and fragrances or other cheap fillers. Sure, it’s easier to formulate with them, but the bottom line is they’re just bad for your skin. Instead, we use ingredients that we know will work – our confidence is founded upon skin care professionals worldwide who use our products in their treatment rooms every day because they get results."
