With ‘dermatologist’ in its name, Dermalogica is a post-millennial brand that started in 1986 thanks to Jane Wurwand, a trained therapist from the UK who migrated to America. Over the last 30 years, the International Dermal Institute has been home to licensed skin geniuses who went on to launch Dermalogica as a brand. With a clear agenda of staying clear of parabens, mineral oils, and SD alcohol, it’s also one of the first brands in India to address face mapping and different skin textures.
