research and development



The International Dermal Institute (IDI) is responsible for the ingredient research and product development behind the Dermalogica skin care line of professional and retail products.

In the same manner in which our education extracts the latest information from a breadth of sources, every Dermalogica product must meet The International Dermal Institutes's exacting standards of ingredient formulation and product development before landing in your treatment room and on the shelf.


Our team of research scientists and specialists work across all sectors of Dermalogica's product development, including stability testing, clinical trials and the science-based education for Dermalogica's training curriculum.

Our product development lab is located at our Global Headquarters in Los Angeles, CA.
