DERMALOGICA SKIN CAREELEGANCE MEDICAL AESTHETICS
While the Dermalogica story begins in 1986, the force of change in the industry started in Los Angeles, circa 1983. Jane Wurwand, a tenured, United Kingdom-trained skin therapist new to the American “esthetician” industry, recognized that continuing skin and body therapy education was practically non-existent in the United States. While her training had been comprehensive and serious, US students entered the industry licensed yet under-trained, and worse, under-respected.
Jane put her education in action, opening a small classroom in Marina del Rey, California under the name The International Dermal Institute (IDI). She invited licensed skin therapists to get hands-on with the postgraduate training so critical to making them competitive in the business. Today, IDI is considered the international gold-standard for postgraduate skin and body therapy training with 37 locations worldwide.
DERMALOGICA is Born
While teaching at IDI, it didn’t take long for Jane to realize no product line embraced her belief of skin health as opposed to “beauty,” so she developed her own. And in 1986, Dermalogica was born. 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 care professionals trained at The International Dermal Institute.

AGE Smart ® Line (aging skin)
Firm to smooth away the signs of skin aging. Control aging triggers before they start.
Sun exposure, lifestyle habits and genetics all contribute to visible signs of skin aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, dehydration and loss of elasticity. These signs appear when biochemical reactions triggered deep within the skin break down the skin’s structure.
AGE Smart® contains scientifically-advanced ingredients proven to impact the major biochemical reactions that contribute to skin aging before they start. Each product protects against skin-aging catalysts and helps repair existing skin damage to restore the skin’s structural integrity. Skin is left dramatically smoother, tighter, firmer and healthier.
MediBac Clearing® Line (acne prone skin)
Clearer skin starts now: bring the four contributing factors of acne under control.
The MediBac Clearing® system works to treat, clear and prevent adult acne while addressing the needs of adult skin. Most products and treatments for acne are designed for teenage skin, making them too harsh and irritating for adult acne sufferers. MediBac Clearing® controls acne without compromising skin’s integrity, which means skin is clearer and healthier.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dermalogica’s MediBac Clearing® system is formulated specifically to treat adult acne. Each product, with its unique acne-fighting and clearing ingredients, is designed to be layered upon the skin to provide around-the-clock, maximum control of the main factors that contribute to acne.
PowerBright TRx ™ Line (uneven skin tone & pigmentation)
Banish brown spots, discoloration and uneven skin tone for your brightest skin ever.
A powerful, concise range of three leave-on treatment products for the treatment and prevention of hyperpigmentation, PowerBright TRx™ is the product of several years of research on melanin biosynthesis and skin brightening by the skin health experts at Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute.
Designed to be layered onto the skin for optimum efficacy and integrated into any existing Dermalogica regimen, these silky-smooth, peptide-rich formulas work around the clock for the brightest, most even skin tone.
UltraCalming ™ Line (sensitive skin)
Treat the multiple triggers behind inflammation for lasting relief from sensitivity flare-ups.
Itching, burning, stinging and redness are the obvious signs of sensitive skin. The triggers behind these sensations are less clear: genetics, hormones, stress, chemical assaults, foods and even aggressive skin treatments can intensify skin’s highly reactive state.
The common thread behind irritation, flushing and stinging is inflammation. When paired with the loss of skin’s protective barrier, skin health is compromised and becomes highly reactive.
UltraCalming™ contains UltraCalming™ Complex, our exclusive complex clinically proven to control neurogenic and immunogenic inflammatory pathways that lead to skin sensitivity.
