UV PROTECTION IN SKINCARE
age-defying antioxidants to protect delicate and damage-prone
areas of the face.
Another factor bench chemists must consider are skin maladies,
and formulators are always looking for ingredients that mesh
well with specific concerns.
According to Diana Howard, Ph.D, VP-R&D and global edu-
cation, Dermalogica is “committed to finding the best technolo-
gies and ingredients in order to provide consumers with products
that deliver results. The brand utilizes advanced technologies that
provide skin with multiple benefits, including free radical defense
and advanced protection against UV-induced damage without
the need for higher concentrations of potentially-irritating sun-
screen ingredients found in products with high SPF.”
Dermalogica’s range includes Solar Defense Booster SPF50,
which may be added to a moisturizer or liquid makeup to create a
multitasking skin care product, as well as SKUs designed for more
specific skin issues. The company’s Oil Free Matte SPF30, part of
it its MediBac Clearing system, is formulated to control the four
main factors which contribute to adult acne. Meanwhile, its Ultra
Sensitive Tint SPF30 and Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 in the
UltraCalming system contain UltraCalming Complex to help re-
duce sensitivity, redness, irritation and inflammation.
