click image to zoom Dermalogica has launched UltraCalming, a complete system to help manage the multiple cases behind sensitized, inflamed skin, which can stem from a genetic predisposition towards sensitivity or as a result from environmental assaults. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, more than 50% of the American population claim skin sensitivity based upon itching, redness, heat, stinging and dryness – symptoms of sensitized skin that can lead to premature aging.
All five UltraCalming products (Cleanser, Mist, Serum Concentrate, Barrier Repair, Relief Masque) feature the proprietary UltraCalming Complex. This multi-benefit complex includes active ingredients that mediate immunogenic and neurogenic inflammatory triggers for immediate and long-term relief of inflamed, sensitized skin. It also includes botanicals and peptides that help mimic skin’s natural protective barrier, helping to strengthen skin cell structure against water loss and defend against dehydration-induced sensitization.
Found within each product in the range, the UltraCalming Complex includes:
Boerhavia Diffusa (Red Hogweed) root extract: Targets neurogenic inflammation by limiting the production of pro-inflammatory agents as well as promoting the production of natural anti-inflammatory agents in the skin
Avena Sativa (Oat kernel) extracts: Rich in avenanthramides, the active components of the Avena Sativa plant which have been widely studied and proven to have natural anti-irritant and anti-redness properties.
Zingiber officinate (Ginger) and Bisabolol (derived from Chamomile): Work synergistically to help reduce redness and irritation.
