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.
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 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. While teaching at IDI, it didn’t take long for Jane to realise 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.
The Skincare Makeup
We are passionate about skincare at The Therapy Centre and are often asked to recommend cosmetics that support skin health. Jane Iredale offers everything that we would recommend as Skin Therapists. The most beautiful cosmetic you can wear is of course healthy skin! We carefully selected this fab brand after extensive research because it’s non-comedogenic (doesn’t block pores) is oil free, contains sun protection, is anti-irritant, free from cheap fillers and dyes, not animal tested and provides fast weightless coverage. It is suitable for a wide range of skin conditions including Acne, Eczema, Psoriasis and Rosacea. Plus there is a great selection of gorgeous products and on trend shades suitable for everyone! Jane Iredale says; “When I started the line almost 25 years ago now, I was hesitant to describe it as “natural” because I didn’t know how to define that word. What is natural? A handful of earth from my garden? Even that will contain heavy metals and probably some acid rain. Is natural always a good thing? Poison Ivy is natural, so is Nightshade. It made more sense to me to describe our line as “clean.” To me it meant scrubbed of those ingredients that we thought had the potential for harming our skin or our health. Though ingredients play a major role in how we define “clean,” we also believe it is important to be mindful of how we impact the environment and our community.”
