This highly active powder resurfacer leaves skin ultra-smooth, while combating the environmental triggers known to cause brown spots, fine lines, and uneven skin tone. Drawing on the same innovative powder form that has made Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant.
Research found that an increase in soot and particles from traffic and pollution was associated with 20% more pigmentation spots. Dr. Diana Howard, Vice President of Research & Development at Dermalogica explains, “As fine airborne particles land on the skin, they become lodged within the skin’s deeper structure, generating free radicals that trigger inflammation. The free radicals break down the skin’s natural lipid barrier, increasing trans-epidermal water loss, and create sensitised skin. In turn, we see signs of ageing such as pigmentation and structural degradation. When ageing is caused by inflammation, we call this ‘inflammaging’.”
Daily Superfoliant comprises of ingredients that adsorb pollutants, inhibit adhesion of pollution particles to help preserve the skin’s youthful structure, and offer exceptional resurfacing for softer, smoother skin. As an example: Activated Binchotan Charcoal Powder derived from Ubame Oak (also referred to as “white charcoal”) attracts and binds itself to impurities in the skin, pulling them out of pores. Microfine particles resurface the skin and draw out particulate matter, as well as excess sebum and other impurities. And Anti-adherence complex (Red Algae, and Tara Fruit Extract) helps preserve the natural barrier function of the skin by providing a non-occlusive molecular mesh that inhibits penetration and adherence of environmental pollutants.
