Meet Smart Response Serum from Dermalogica, a next-gen smart serum that delivers what your skin needs, when it needs it. We caught up with Dermalogica’s Education Manager Victoria Evans to find out more.
Skin care just got smarter
Consider for a moment how much technology has developed over recent years. How many of us could live without our smart phones? For many, our whole life is on that device! Do you have a smart speaker at home that you rely on daily to manage your shopping list or turn your lights on? As technology has allowed us to streamline our lives our skin care routines have become increasingly complex, but not necessarily smarter. We use responsive technology on a daily basis and it’s time we expect the same intelligence in our skin care products.
The science behind your skin’s signals
Your skin communicates with you, but you may not always know what it’s saying and when you realise your skin has changed, troublesome symptoms have already developed, prompting you to change up your regimen. But what if you could use a smart serum daily that micromanaged your skin, responding to changes before you were even aware? Now that’s smart skin care!
Our skin is constantly sending out signals at a micro-level as changes occur within our skin as it responds to our environment. From a surge in melanin production on exposure to UV rays or inflammatory mediators triggered as part of an immune response when skin is damaged or under attack. Over time, we see the visible symptoms of these changes as common conditions such as dehydration, redness and dark spots. With cutting-edge ‘smart actives’ in our skin care, next-gen formulas can respond to these micro-changes to deliver what your skin needs, when and where it needs it.
Micromanaging your skin
Our skin is constantly changing, not only seasonally but from one day to the next, in response to our climate, our diet, stress, and a number of other factors. Smart Response Serum contains SmartResponse technology that reacts to skin’s needs by detecting micro changes in the skin. By activating key ingredients on different areas of the face in response to skin’s micro-changes, Smart Response Serum is able to work when, where, and how skin needs it. The ultimate personalised skin care product! Perfect if you need to address multiple skin conditions at once.
Smart Response Serum contains ingredients that are ‘switched on’ when they detect certain changes in the skin and work to reduce four common symptoms - redness, dehydration, dark spots and wrinkles.
- Gallic Acid from Japanese Cornelia Cherry helps to soothe skin and reduce the appearance of redness.
- Mannose-6-Phosphate helps to smooth and firm the skin.
- Hydrolysed Wheat Flour, rich in Arabinoxylo-Oligosaccharides, brightens skin and helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots.
- Oligosaccharides from Hydrolysed Beta Glucan helps skin to maintain optimal hydration levels.
- This hydrating serum also contains a rich blend of minerals, Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide, and Vitamin E providing a moisturising base with barrier enhancing properties.

How to use
Each morning after cleansing and toning, apply one to two pumps of Smart Response Serum. Allow one minute for product absorption and follow with your prescribed Dermalogica moisturiser or SPF.
