Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel
Dermalogica products, such as Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel, do not contain harsh irritants, pore-clogging ingredients or fillers such as lanolin, SD alcohol, mineral oil, and artificial colors and fragrances. This commitment to high-quality products that benefit the skin has made Dermalogica special cleansing gel is the number one requested professional skin care line in the United States with over 60 professional and retail products available to address a wide range of skin types. All their products are manufactured in the United States and are available through skin therapists nationwide along with a free professional Face Mapping service to ensure that every user is utilizing the right combination of products, including Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel, to get results for their individual skin issues.
In 1983, Jane Wurwand, a licensed and tenured skin therapist from Great Britain, came to Los Angeles and was surprised by the lack of continuing education and respect for those in the esthetics industry. She began the International Dermal Institute to train other skin therapists. Frustrated by her inability to find an American skin care line that focused on skin health, she created the Dermalogica line of professional skin care in 1986, which included Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel.
One of the foundations of the Dermalogica approach to skin health is the double cleanse technique. The first step consists of PreCleanse, a water-soluble oil based cleanser that removes makeup and debris so that the second cleanser can focus on cleansing the skin. Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel is the central cleanser of the line and is formulated for all skin types. It is soap-free, yet foams when mixed with water, so it gently but thoroughly removes any dirt or pore-clogging residue before rinsing cleanly away.
Instead of using harsh detergents that strip the skin, Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel uses a Quillaja Saponaria base. This extract from the Soapbark tree found in Chile is a naturally foaming soap substitute that is more suitable for delicate facial skin than the harsher sulfates found in many foaming cleansers. Lavender extracts in Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel soothe and purify the skin, while balm mint extracts cool and calm the skin.
Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel is concentrated, so a little goes a long way. Simply place a pea-sized drop into moistened hands and rub to form lather. Massage the cleanser into a moistened face and neck with upward circular motions and rinse thoroughly.
Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel has been a long-time favorite of devotees of the line and raised the bar for cleansers. A 16.9-ounce bottle of Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel retails for $49.50.
