Founded in 1986 by Jane Wurwand, Dermalogica is a brand of professional skincare products that uses only the highest quality ingredients to treat a wide variety of skin concerns, and to improve skin health. Dermalogica claims that its approach to skincare is to focus on skin health, rather than “beauty,” which they accomplish by avoiding “common irritants and ingredients that could cause breakouts (including lanolin, SD alcohol, mineral oil, artificial colors and fragrances).”

Dermalogica is Big on Education
Dermalogica’s founder, Jane Wurwand, started a continuing education school in 1983 that was focused on addressing the needs of skincare professionals. During this time, she recognized the need for products that embraced her views on skin health, so she started her own line, which would later become Dermalogica.
Today, Dermalogica’s site is a continuation of their vision to educate people about skin health, and includes quite a bit of useful information. The company does a great job of outlining the benefits of each of their products, their ingredients, and how to use them—including numerous videos.
Even before buying any of their products, the Dermalogica site recommends that you consult with an authorized skin treatment center, medispa, or salon, in order to ensure you choose a product that’s right for your skin.
Dermalogica Pricing, Shipping, & Return Policy
Dermalogica products range in price from $20 to more than $200, and orders greater than $50 come with free UPS shipping. Most products are shipped via Ground, though if you would like your product to arrive faster, you can pay for overnight shipping. Dermalogica rewards repeat purchases through their reward and loyalty program, which can provide a wide variety of benefits.
All Dermalogica skincare products come with a 30-day return policy, though this timeline begins from the purchase date. You’ll first need to have your return pre-approved by customer service, and there is no charge for return shipping. Once your item is received by Dermalogica, a full refund will be issued.

Great for oily skin
I love that brand, I used the clean start line for oily skin and breakouts. The face wash is great and I love the matte SPF 15 face lotion. No more greasy face.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
