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 30 years, we've been dedicated to delivering skin health results through education, innovation, and professional recommendation, not through sparkly packaging, promises of miracle cures, or overblown hype.
Education First 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, recognised that continuing skin and body therapy education was practically non-existent in the United States. While her UK 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 The International Dermal Institute (IDI) for licensed skin therapists to get hands-on postgraduate training. Today, IDI is considered the international gold-standard for postgraduate skin and body therapy training with 37 locations worldwide.
The Making of Dermalogica While teaching at IDI, it didn’t take long for Jane to realise that no product line embraced her belief of skin health as opposed to "beauty," so she developed her own. 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. Dermalogica has become the number one choice of skin care professionals worldwide, sold in over 80 countries and prescribed more often than any other skin care product available.
