Treat the multiple triggers behind inflammation for lasting relief from sensitivity flare-ups.

Itching, burning, stinging and redness are the obvious signs of sensitive skin. The triggers behind these sensations are less clear: genetics, hormones, stress, chemical assaults, foods and even aggressive skin treatments can intensify skin’s highly reactive state. The common thread behind irritation, flushing and stinging is inflammation. When paired with the loss of skin’s protective barrier, skin health is compromised and becomes highly reactive.

how it works

UltraCalming™ contains UltraCalming™ Complex, our exclusive complex clinically proven to control neurogenic and immunogenic inflammatory pathways that lead to skin sensitivity.



Great friends recommend great products, and this one's amazing! worth every penny.



Can't live without this


This works! It feels amazing, its lightweight and it truly has helped ease my redness and inflammation! Took a few days for me to see any change but now I can't be without it morning and night!



Knocked my socks off!


I tried a sample that my Ulta skin rep gave to me. I have keratosis piloris on my cheeks, causing constant redness. My fair skin is also a tattle tale for any blemish that comes up. I applied a generous amount to my face before I went to bed.... woke up the next morning and 90% of my facial redness was GONE! I literally stared into the mirror AMAZED by the results! I'm so glad I don't have to use green redness corrector makeup anymore!

I purchased this travel size Ultra-Calming Dermalogica kit to try and in just one week I have triple amount of cyst type pimples all over my chin, I have never broke out on my chin in the past no matter the product, now I'm feeling even more insecure about my upcoming wedding then before!!! So disappointed!



I'm so disappointed 😔


So I love the Ultracalm cleanser & Essence as I have sensitive, red & acne prone skin; however, I'm so so disappointed that this serum actually is overpowering to the point where it made me flare up.... it's great smelling but not for me or anyone with fragrance sensitivity. On top of it the clinic I purchased it from refuses exchange or refund..

Love love love


I put this product on right after washing my face. It's light and absorbs nicely into the skin, without leaving a greasy residue. In the winter months I put this on and then put a tiny bit of coconut oil on my face with it. It has improved the texture of my face and doesn't cause me to breakout. I'm so appreciative of this ultrcalming line!!

love this product!


I love this product! Love the whole line! Used it religiously for months...but now I am ok accutane for acne and need to be careful about products with Vitamin A in them. Can this product be used on accutane?



Love, hate relationship


I want to love this, and for the price I am trying to justify my decision to keep using. Maybe I got a bad batch, but it's much more watery that the sample I used prior to purchasing this larger bottle. I shake it before use every time and it is still runny. Great smell and is moisturizing, but I've had to resort to the "barrier repair" to get a deeper moisturizer on dry patches around my eyes. Why is this watery?

Great product


I use this serum every day. It really helps calm my skin and helps keeps aging lines at bay

I have just started a derma roller regimen and need to apply a serum afterwards. Do you recommend the dynamic intense moisturizer ? Or this ultracalming serum concentrate?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. That is at your discretion depending on what your skin can tolerate. Kind Regards, Bernadette


I have started using Dermalogica, for my day time routine I have been using calming cleanser, calming serum and then barrier repair & them make-up over. My skin feels less irritated however its still quite dry/flaky. Is there anything further I should use as part of my morning routine to help the dryness?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Try adding Multi Active Toner for more hydration. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Does this product have expiration date ? I can't find it anywhere!?


Hello, Products containing SPF and Acne actives will have an expiration date on the bottle. Once the product reaches the date stamped on the packaging it should no longer be used, otherwise the shelf life for unopened products is about 2-3 years. All other products have an open jar symbol, which is the diagram drawing of a jar with lid and a number in the jar. Most commonly used is 24 M. This means that once opened, the product may be used up to 24 months. This does not mean however that the product may not have changed in smell, texture or even efficacy it only means that it is SAFE to use based on stability data which differs from product to product but in the majority of cases is 24-36 months. We hope this addresses your concerns. Thanks for your inquiry and interest in Dermalogica. Sincerely, Bernadette


Does this product help to calm sensitive skin that is prone to one or two adult cystic pimple flares? I periodically have Bio-Peel treatment and that really helps my skin..I just need to be careful with "over exfoliation" as well which can also trigger a cystic pimple. Typically, I only get one cystic - yet even though one, it can be very deep.


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Try Calm Water Gel. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi there i recently bought the ultra calming kit and i got on with it at first but my skin feels itchy and sore useing the serum concentrate any suggesgetions what i could used instead?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may prefer Calm Water Gel. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Is this product discontinued?

Ashley Campbell

Hello Ashley, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. I apologize. That item is currently out of stock due to high demand. There is no update at this time. We are doing our best to get it back in stock asap. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Is the ultracalming line non-comodogenic?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This product is rich in botanicals and lipids to nourish sensitized skin. If you are prone to breakouts, you may prefer Gentle Soothing Booster. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi, should barrier repair used before or after serum concentrate? Thanks


Dear Amy, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Ultra Calming Serum Concentrate first and follow with Barrier Repair next. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Will this serum be compatible with my nightly routine, and, if so, where does it fit in? My Routine: wash with Special Cleansing Gel, tone with Active Moist, eyes with Age Reversal Eye Complex, and finally moisturize with Skin Smoothing Cream. Thank you!


Hello Heddy, Your ideal regimen would be the follow: Special Cleansing Gel Multi Active Toner Ultra Calming Serum Concentrate Skin Smoothing Cream AGE Reversal Eye Complex Kind Regards, Bernadette

I've been using the product for just a few days, but in the morning my skin feels a bit tacky, is that normal or is the serum not penetrating my skin as it should overnight? Thank you


Hello Diane, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. For best results, cleanse the skin, apply Ultra Calming Mist, follow with Ultra Calming Serum Concentrate and seal everything in with Skin Smoothing Cream. Kind Regards, Bernadette
