If winter has left your skin feeling dry and uncomfortable, fear not! Dermalogica have come to the rescue with their new, intensively nourishing duo to restore dry and depleted skin! We caught up with Victoria Schofield, Dermalogica’s Education Executive to find out more.

We’re super excited to reveal to you an improved formula for one of our most popular dry skin hero moisturisers as well as a new edition to our Daily Skin Health line, get ready to meet Intensive Moisture Balance and Intensive Moisture Cleanser!

Many of you will be suffering with dry skin as a result of the harsh winter climate but some of you were born with a dry skin type meaning you need to manage dryness all year round. Let’s look at what is happening in a dry skin and hot to remedy the symptoms.

Dry skin is typically genetic and feels dry all over, including the hands and scalp. This skin type is more susceptible to sensitivity and signs of premature ageing, and constantly needs moisturising. When studying the skin’s protective barrier, dry skin lacks barrier lipids that protect the skin from irritants entering and moisture escaping. These lipids are crucial for protection and hydration and ultimately, healthy functioning skin. Imagine the surface skin layers as a brick wall, the dead skin cells are your defensive bricks and the barrier lipids are the mortar holding the structure together. Any depletion of these lipids results in dry skin symptoms such as tightness, flakiness, rough texture and sensitivity.

Introducing the upgraded Intensive Moisture Balance and new Intensive Moisture Cleanser, both powered by the unique BioReplenish ComplexTM to deliver a combination of key barrier lipids that enhance skin’s natural resilience and supports barrier recovery.

Intensive Moisture Cleanser

When it comes to cleansing dry skin, many formulas either contain harsh surfactants that strip essential barrier lipids and proteins leaving skin tight and uncomfortable or are too mild and don’t effectively remove make-up and dirt leading to dull and lackluster skin.  Intensive Moisture Cleanser is formulated with a cutting-edge, lipid enriched surfactant system that deeply cleanses without damaging the lipid barrier and is fortified with phytoactives from Coconut and Murumuru Seed Butter to protect barrier lipids and preserve the skin’s natural resilience.

Invigorating extracts of Citrus, Palmarosa and Jasmine help soothe and refresh tired skin, and have antioxidant properties. Simply massage onto dampened face and neck and rinse with warm water. Use twice daily, morning and night.

Intensive Moisture Balance

Like the latest upgrade to your smart phone, Intensive Moisture Balance is now powered by the latest technology providing better functionality, all with the same texture and aroma you know and love.

The new and unique BioReplenish ComplexTM delivers a resilience and supports barrier recovery. Dual Hyaluronic Acid now features in addition to the heritage ingredients of Echinacea, Centella Asiatica and Aloe from the original formula to bolster hydration levels. It works in different skin surface layers to increase and lock in moisture, plus a prebiotic chlorella algae complex has been included to help re balance the skin’s natural microbiome by fostering “good” bacteria and diminishing “bad” bacteria which can cause exacerbate dryness.

Intensive Moisture Balance now delivers nourishment beyond the skin’s surface to alleviate dry and depleted skin symptoms. Apply to clean skin morning and evening.


Together, these innovative formulas can help make a life-changing difference to those with dry skin, as they help break the endless cycle of lipid depletion and dehydration by proactively maintaining a healthy skin lipid barrier.
