recyclable cleanser

Metal springs are a hidden secret inside most pumps, rendering them non-recyclable. Our new cleanser packaging uses a single-material recyclable pump and 50% post-consumer-recycled plastic bottles, reducing waste and increasing recyclability.


Now you can easily recycle your Dermalogica empties for free! Learn more about our partnership with TerraCycle.
