Dermalogica Microfoliant is a unique, rice-based enzyme powder activates upon contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes to smooth the skin and accelerate cell renewal. Their unique Skin Brightening Complex of Bearberry, Aspergillus, Grapefruit and Licorice helps to balance uneven skin pigmentation. Active agents derived from Rice Bran and Rice Extract help to regulate melanin production while micro-exfoliating dead cells. A super-soothing blend of Green Tea, Ginkgo and Colloidal Oatmeal calms inflammation, leaving the skin extraordinarily clear and refreshed. Gentle enough to use on a daily basis. Fragrance free. Professional recommendation advised.

How It Works:

  • Rice Bran and Rice Extract gently microfoliate skin surface to facilitate penetration of the Skin Brightening Complex.
  • Papain Enzyme and Salicylic Acid help dissolve excess surface cells.
  • Skin Brightening Complex of Licorice and Bearberry helps even skin tone.

              This is my first review for anything and this product deserves to be lauded! I had large pores, dark spots, and combination skin for yeaaaars. However, my main problem was to get rid of the post pimple marks(not scars. MARKS) I had for quite some time. They are bumps left from my pimple. When I started using this (I so far used it every other day and abt 7 times), it... Got rid of the bumps, faded my dark spots, and tightened my enlarged pores. Pretty drastically, too! I know it is this one doing the work because I do not put any treatments on my face and I only use the tea tree facial cleanser from The Body Shop, which I have been using for 2 years. Bottom line: It helps a lot!

                        Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. For exfoliation you can start out by using the Daily Microfoliant 1 to 2 times per week, if your skin responds well you can increase it daily or use on alternate days. Let us know if you have any further questions.

If you find it convenient to exfoliate in the evening you should continue to use the Daily Microfoliant during that time. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

                        Thank you for your interest in Dermalogia. The Daily Superfoliant will be more effective for treating the closed comedones, it contains activated Binchotan Charcoal, which purifies the skin, helping to adsorb environmental toxins from deep within the pores.

                        Thank you for your inquiry. Gentle Cream Exfoliant would be a better exfolaint for your skin condition. We recommend using this masque 2-3 times a week to address your acne prone skin.

                        Thank you for your inquiry. There is less than 1% of salicylic acid in this product. The base is an enzyme which is activated by water. Daily Microfoliant is a very gentle exfoliant and is meant to be used everyday.
