The Moment Your Skin Changed. Forever.
When Dermalogica meets skin, skin health is redefined. Dermalogica is the number one choice of skin care professionals and consumers worldwide. Why? Because for over 25 years, we’ve been dedicated to delivering skin health results through education, innovation, and professional recommendation, not through advertising, frilly packaging, promises of miracle cures, or overblown hype.
The Making of Dermalogica
The vision was clear – a product line free of common irritants and ingredients that could cause breakouts (including lanolin, SD alcohol, mineral oil, artificial colors and fragrances) that would improve skin health, and were only available from qualified skin therapy professionals trained at The International Dermal Institute.
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 specialized expertise of the professional skin therapist.
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.
Dermalogica is a privately owned company (meaning we are not owned by a beauty conglomerate, holding company or financiers) driven first by education and research. We take pride in being true pioneers in the industry, growing from a modest store-front in Marina del Rey to the now 145,000 square foot Corporate Headquarters in Los Angeles (and locations worldwide in close to 50 countries) -- never wavering on our initial vision of skin health and the skin health professional. – less
