A weightless, water-gel moisturiser that hydrates dry, sensitive skin. Refreshing gel formula transforms into a skin-quenching fluid upon application, forming a weightless barrier against environmental assault. Featuring a Dual Hyaluronic Acid technology that works amongst the different layers of the skin’s surface to increase moisture and lock it in. Calm Water Gel provides immediate hydration to dry, irritated, sensitive skin.

How does it work?

Calm Water Gel locks in moisture and defends skin against dryness. How does it do this? A Dual Hyaluronic Acid technology penetrates the different layers of our skin to hydrate and protect. Apple Fruit Extract and Glycerin soften whilst defending skin against dryness. Cactus Pear Extract helps to soothe sensitivity and imparts water-binding properties to help support a healthy moisture balance.


  • Calm Water Gel will provide immediate hydration to those suffering from dry, irritated skin.
  • The Ultra Calming range from Dermalogica contains ingredients specially formulated to soothe and calm.
  • Calm Water Gel locks in moisture to defend against dry skin whilst softening sensitive skin in a weightless formula.

Who is it for?

The Ultra Calming range has been specially formulated for those with sensitive, irritated skin. How do you know if you have sensitive skin? Your skin should display the following symptoms and feeling:

  • Thin texture with a translucent appearance.
  • A feeling of tightness, which can indicate dehydration and lead to skin reactions from products.
  • Redness or blotchiness. This signals over-reactive capillaries or a tendency toward Rosacea.
  • Flaking, peeling or cracking on the cheeks and forehead. This indicates dehydrated skin and impaired barrier function.
  • Flushing and itching, or burning sensations, which can also be a sign of over-reactive sensitivity.
  • Small, rash-like bumps or breakouts (not to be confused with acne breakouts).

If your skin feels similarly sensitive then you will benefit from the soothing Ultra Calming range.

Key Ingredients:

  • Apple Fruit Extract

Known for its moisturising properties, Apple Fruit Extract hydrates and softens whilst defending against dryness. It is a great ingredient for maintaining the skin’s elasticity.

  • Cactus Pear Extract

Rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids, Cactus Pear Extract soothes sensitivity and imparts water-binding properties to support a healthy moisture balance.

  • Dual Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid technology targets the skin’s layers to ensure Calm Water Gel delivers deep down. The unique ability of Hyaluronic Acid to hold so much water means that it is like a sponge giving the skin vast amounts of moisture.
