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.

      Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

      This product is unbelievable. After years of struggling with acne, taking antibiotics, using harsh topicals, even undergoing a round of Accutane, it seemed like absolutely nothing was going to clear my skin. My forehead was greasy and bumpy with things that weren't quite blackheads or white heads while my cheeks and jaw were dry and developed deeper, bigger zits. I gave up on my dermatologist who wasn't helping and walked into Ulta. Within 2 minutes, the Dermalogica rep looked at my skin and recommended this product. I was skeptical that something that seemed so gentle could do anything, but she told me to start off using it every other day or every two days and I could potentially increase to every day use. Well, that's what I've done and seriously, my skin has never been brighter, smoother, clearer, softer, etc. This stuff is a little pricey, but it is a MIRACLE. I could not be more pleased and I will be purchasing again and again!!

        It's super easy to use. Just put it on moist hands and rub it between your palms then apply it to your face. It leaves your face feeling so fresh and dewy and soft. I really like this product. I also like that it isn't scented.

            Product has an oatmeal type smell, which I enjoyed. It was abit messy as it starts as a powder and you add water and mix it into a paste yourself. Gentle exfoliation which always leave some my skin feeling clean and smooth. Can be used daily, but probably not on sensitive skin.

            Comments about Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant:

            I use this for when I have small breakouts. It works better than other things I've tried with clearing up my skin. However, I tend to use the two days on- one day off schedule since using it daily dried out my skin too much. I found that it doesn't have much benefit compared to other cleansers with preventing breakouts, so I only use it once spots start to pop up since its kind of expensive.

                I have rosacea so it is difficult to find an exfoliant that does not irritate my skin. I was told by an employee to try this - that you can scrub your face with it as much as you want and it does not irritate. The rice powder is very gentle but makes skin soft and smooth. I use in shower after cleansing my face.

                    Hello there:

                    Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You should not use any type of exfoliating product on the treated area for 3–4 days after treatment or until your skin shows no signs of sensitivity. If skin is no longer sensitive, Daily Microfoliant may be used to slough off peeling skin.
