Skin Smoothing Cream was part of Dermalogica’s original line up of products back in 1986 when the brand was created and launched. Now, after 30 years, Skin Smoothing Cream has had a makeover!
Dermalogica’s Skin Smoothing Cream has been a top-seller for over 30 years! Yet, the world has changed dramatically over the last 30 years, with environmental factors and busier lives. So, Dermalogica decided to take advantage of new research and technology to deliver a state of the art formula to live up to today’s demands.
Don’t worry - your favourite moisturiser still has the same great benefits of the original, only with an evolved state of the art technology.
Having to contend with more aggressive environmental factors means our skin can lose its hydration and moisture. The new Skin Smoothing Cream features Hydra Mesh Technology which infuses skin with 48 hours of critical moisture whilst preventing Trans-Epidermal-Water-Loss (natural water that escapes from the skin leading to dehydration, a feeling of tightness and flakiness).
The new generation Skin Smoothing Cream works on a molecular level to form a mesh like surface under the skin’s layers which protects against free radical damage from the environment and reduces water loss, infusing skin with 48 hours of hydration.
Including humectants such as Urea and Glycerin to attract moisture and hold it within the skin. Skin Smoothing Cream also contains Hyaluronic Acid which hydrates throughout the different levels of skin.
Don’t be nervous or worries that your favourite moisturiser is changing. It still has the same great feel and texture only with added advanced technology. The familiar aroma of Cucumber, Mallow and Arnica are still packed in there too to soothe and nourish.
Grapeseed Extract and Vitamins C and E provide an effective antioxidant complex within the iconic, non greasy, medium-weight finish. Hydration and protection is key so the new generation Skin Smoothing Cream will still support the lipid barrier and optimise the skins microbiome. Plant derived lipids fortify the skin’s barrier as Dermalogica Education Executive puts it, “The cream you know and love, only better! You won’t be disappointed…”
Skin Smoothing Cream has long been our number one moisturiser. But between increasing environmental triggers and ever-busier lifestyles, the world has evolved since its creation. So we evolved its formula... Skin Smoothing Cream now features state-of-the-art Active HydraMesh Technology™, which infuses skin with 48 hours of critical moisture.
Perfect for those with normal to dry skin, this medium-weight cream contains soothing botanicals and antioxidant vitamins to maintain the skin’s moisture balance and hydrate whilst improving its texture, helping to restore suppleness and tone. Apply over face and throat with light, upward strokes. Best used following Multi-Active Toner. Can be applied over or mixed with a concentrated booster for additional results. Apply after cleansing and toning, AM and PM.
Caprylic/ Capric Triglyceride - Derived from coconut oil and glycerin, capric triglyceride is a gentle moisturiser and skin-replenishing ingredient. It’s included in cosmetics due to its mix of fatty acids that skin can use to replenish its surface and resist moisture loss.
Ethylhexyl Hydroxystearate - this is a form of stearic acid which is a naturally occuring fatty acid, great for building a firm structure and providing a barrier shield for your delicate skin.
Stearic Acid - Stearic acid also has important cleansing properties so will give you that clear-skin feeling!
Butylene Glycol - Butylene glycol is added to skin care products to increase penetration by other ingredients in the formulation. By increasing skin penetration, butylene glycol can boost the overall effectiveness of the product. Butylene glycol is also a humectant so it will draw moisture to the skin from the surrounding atmosphere. This makes skin plump and hydrated all day long.
Glycerin - Glycerin is a substance naturally found in skin and it’s all about hydration! It softens and smooths skin as it hydrates and locks in water.
Aloe Barbadensis Extract - Aloe Barbadensis leaf juice can soothe skin and work as an anti-inflammatory. It also heals wounds quickly and blocks some UV light.
Dimethicone - This aids the texture of Skin Smoothing Cream, giving it a lucious, smooth feel. It also provides a protective cover on the skin to lock moisture in.
PEG-8 - This is an ingredient that makes all other ingredients bind together nicely in the bottle.
Cetearyl Alcohol - Don’t get confused here - this is not the kind of fermented alcohol you might expect. This can be derived naturally, from coconut and it is a fatty ingredient that really hydrates and restores skin. In fact, it’s probably one of the best ingredients for sensitive skin, building back a hydro-lipid barrier on the outermost layer of your complexion. In other words, it feeds skin and builds back it’s protective layers.
Sodium Hyaluronate - Sodium hyaluronate is the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in your skin. Hyaluronic acid gives skin volume by holding onto water, making your complexion firm and plump.

Trehalose - Rehydrating, water-binding and antioxidant powers. Great for ageing skin.
Algin - Gives skin smoothing cream a beautiful texture, whilst hydrating your skin.
Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate - This is a tiny form of hyaluronic acid - the molecules are so small that they can penetrate deeper layers of skin, plumping and hydrating at a deeper level. Overall, this gives a firm skin effect.
Serine - This is an amino acid that strengthens the walls of skin cells. It aids in collagen production, boosts skin’s elasticity and replenishes moisture levels.
Linoleic Acid - Reinforces skin’s natural ability to moisturise and also helps reduce acne breakouts.
Phospholipids - Strengthens your skin’s protective barrier so that pollutants can’t get in and hydration cannot get out. Skin feels smooth and protected.

I always use Skin Smoothing Cream but my skin was starting to feel a bit dry and tight, so I switched to this. It definitely delivers more moisture, yet it's still light, so it's a perfect alternative for those winter months. So far, I love it.Nicola Limavady, United Kingdom
Not tried it as yet so cannot comment. But if it’s as lovely as the original one, I’m going to love it.Beverley Salisbury, United Kingdom
Really nice moisturiser. You only need a small amount, and the best thing is it hydrates and soothes your skin without feeling sticky.Caroline Dalkeith, United Kingdom
Love this. It's really hydrating and has made my easily irritated skin feel comfortable and soothed.Caroline Dalkeith, United Kingdom
I’m still not sure of the New Skin Smoothing Cream as I’ve had a few breakouts. The old Skin Smoothing Cream was fine. Hopefully it settles down.Cathryn DERBY, United Kingdom
