Beauty news: Dermalogica adds to their already-impressive foliant family

Regular exfoliation is essential for smooth, healthy-looking skin, but it’s also a skincare step that many have a little trepidation around. And with good reason. First gen scrubs were gritty, harsh and later, bad for the environment, and overzealous scrubbers were often left with superficial damage to their skin and a hell of a lot of redness.
Fast forward to 2022 and things have changed dramatically – and for the better. Dermalogica were one of the first brands to create a formula designed to be used every day to brighten and smooth skin that wouldn’t increase sensitivity or breakouts – the iconic Daily Microfoliant – so it’s no surprise that they have just dropped another addition to what they call the “foliant franchise” in the form of the all new Daily Milkfoliant.

Whatever your skin condition, Daily Milkfoliant is the peaceful way to exfoliate, which is music to the ears for sensitive types like me. Clinically proven to “smooth skin calmly”, the soothing formula removes dulling surface debris for a more even skin tone and texture, while nourishing essential minerals and Hyaluronic Acid replenish the skin’s moisture barrier for more hydrated, healthy-looking skin. Key ingredients include Oat Bran Extract, rich in avenanthramides and known for its calming and soothing properties, and coconut milk to condition the skin. Fruit-based grape extract and Arginine help polish away dead skin calls, while Saccharide Isomerate to help support skin’s moisture barrier through hydration and prevention of skin dryness.
The inimitable Caroline Parker, Dermalogica New Zealand Head of Education, comments: “Packed with oat, coconut, and botanical extracts rich in Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs), a splash of water transforms this powder to a rich, creamy lather that gently polishes away dead skin cells.” The new formula is used in the same way as the Daily Microfoliant, and makes for an essential addition to any skincare regime.
As well as it’s sensitive approach, I love that the new release comes in a bottle made from 50 percent recycled plastic, making the vegan formula kind on the planet as well as your skin.
Daily Milkfoliant comes in a 74g bottle for RRP $119, and is available from authorised Dermalogica Skin Centres, department stores, Life Pharmacies and online at from June 10. It comes highly recommended.
