Cleansers



Soap- free Dermalogica Cleansers lift impurities, address skin issues and prep skin for treatment.


how it works

Cleansers work by emulsifying dirt and oils that collect on our skin. While this step is critical to skin health, the use of soap-based cleansers can irritate the skin's protective barrier and raise the skin's pH level.


On a scale from 1 to 14, a neutral pH is 7. The skin's normal pH level is between a 4 and a 5 (acidic). The majority of soaps are made from lye or potassium hydroxide: alkaline ingredients that can reach in the opposite direction, all the way up to 14 on the pH scale. Using soaps that are high in alkalinity take skin from an acidic state to an alkaline state and strip natural lipids from our skin. This accounts for the tight, pulled feeling you may have experienced after cleansing with soap. While you may interpret this feeling as "cleanliness," it is actually your skin suffering from a loss of lipids!


Every Dermalogica Cleanser is soap free, and pH-balanced to protect the skin's natural moisture barrier. It's the ultimate start to your healthy skin regimen.
