Winter doesn’t just impact our immune system – it also does a good job of stripping the skin’s natural protective barrier. Combine that with the average adult losing nearly half a litre of moisture through Trans-Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL) every day, makes continuous hydration and protection against dehydration an essential component of overall skin health.

Dermalogica has introduced two solutions for the ever-increasing population of individuals who are prone to dry skin – especially during the dry, cold winter months – a newly reformulated Intensive Moisture Balance Moisturiser and NEW Intensive Moisture Cleanser – both featuring a state-of-the-art BioReplenish Complex™, as well as an upgraded NEW Skin Smoothing Cream powered by Active HydraMesh™ Technology.

These formulas do MORE than just rehydrate dry skin; they restore and transform skin. Key to this transformation is support for the skin’s barrier lipids, which are critical for a healthy, hydrated appearance. A healthy lipid barrier is like a strong wall on the surface of the skin – it locks moisture in and keeps irritants out. Without a healthy lipid barrier, our skin loses water faster and becomes more vulnerable to dryness, irritation, dullness, flakiness, roughness, loss of elasticity, and cracking.


The newly reformulated Intensive Moisture Balance Moisturiser with BioReplenish Complex™ is engineered to help strengthen, replenish and better support the skin’s barrier lipids to help reduce dryness.

Ingredients, features and benefits:
BioReplenish Complex™ delivers a proven combination of key barrier lipids to help enhance the skin’s natural resilience and support barrier recovery.
A prebiotic Chlorella Algae complex helps rebalance the skin’s natural microbiome for healthy-looking skin.
Hyaluronic Acid, combined with Echinacea, Centella Asiatica and Aloe Vera, locks in hydration to help enhance the skin’s moisture content and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
