- Relaxing – Rotorua’s Thermal Mud treatments provide a wonderful feeling of tranquility
- Cleansing – Gently cleanses and exfoliates the skin
- Detoxifying – After the mud is applied it dries and creates a barrier which then increases the temperature of the skin. This heat encourages the blood circulation and the blood flow which flushes the toxins out of the small veins near the surface of the skin, leaving the skin clean and refreshed.
When Dermalogica meets skin, skin health is redefined. Dermalogica is the number one choice of skin care professionals and consumers worldwide.
While the Dermalogica story begins in 1986, the force of change in the industry started in Los Angeles, circa 1983. Jane Wurwand, a tenured, United Kingdom-trained skin therapist new to the American "esthetician" industry, recognised that continuing skin and body therapy education was practically non-existent in the United States. While her training had been comprehensive and serious, US students entered the industry licensed yet under-trained, and worse, under-respected.
Jane put her education in action, opening a small classroom in Marina del Rey, California under the name The International Dermal Institute (IDI). She invited licensed skin therapists to get hands-on with the postgraduate training so critical to making them competitive in the business. Today, IDI is considered the international gold-standard for postgraduate skin and body therapy training with 37 locations worldwide.
Dermalogica is born…
While teaching at IDI, it didn’t take long for Jane to realise no product line embraced her belief of skin health as opposed to "beauty," so she developed her own. And in 1986, Dermalogica was born. The vision was clear – a product line free of common irritants and ingredients that could cause breakouts (including lanolin, SD alcohol, mineral oil, artificial colours and fragrances) that would improve skin health, and were only available from qualified skin care professionals trained at The International Dermal Institute.
Then, as now, all our products are manufactured in the USA, we have never taken part in animal testing and Dermalogica is sold only where professional consultation and professional treatments are performed by professional skin therapists.
We're not pretty...
(Or beautiful. Or pampering. Or luxury.)
We’re far too interested in guiding you to a new level of skin health fitness! So, while our packaging may not be designed to colour-coordinate with your bathroom, you can always be sure that we use ingredients that we know will work – our confidence founded by skin care professionals worldwide who use our products in their treatment rooms every day because they get results.
Here at Skin Sanctuary Day Spa we believe in results driven Skincare and choose Dermalogica as our number one choice. Our staff are always qualified and continue with further education on the dermalogica expert journey.

OUR JESSICA PHILOSOPHY
Gorgeous colour starts with the right foundation. Nails have their own biology, just like hair and skin. For the best care and the most beautiful outcome, nails require a studied approach that is similar to how a Beauty Therapist cares for the skin or a Hair Stylist for the hair.
Nail types can be best described as Dry, Brittle, Damaged, or Normal, and they may be peeling or breaking. For every nail type and every problem, there is a solution for the best care and most beautiful outcome.
"The JESSICA Nail Cultivist understands the structure of each client’s nails as the key to success to restore health and wellness to natural nails, and must devise a regimen unique to the individual. The Jessica Nail Cultivation System® and my exclusive treatment base coats are designed with this in mind. With the help of nurturing botanicals, antioxidant vitamins, and proteins, my products work to improve nails at the source —the foundation.
I believe education is one of the best tools in nail care. Women today are savvy and interested in improving the health of their hair, skin, and nails. Passing knowledge on to the customer ensures they are invested in the process of achieving their most beautiful nails. My approach has always been considered revolutionary and it works like nothing else can."

Skinnies - A sunscreen revolution!
The inny on the Skinnies!
We all love the outdoors, it’s in our DNA. But staying safe under the harsh sun, has turned us into a society of sloppers. Sun loving folk reduced to lathering up the sunscreen like no one’s business.
That’s all good if you want to look like a miming street performer, (you know, all covered in white stuff), but not for us, uh-uh, & not for Skinnies. That’s why Skinnies is different, and that’s why Skinnies contains no water. None, zero, nada. Not a drop.
Now, we know water’s pretty important. In fact we like it as much as the next guy. Just not in our sunscreen. The truth is that most sunscreens are 50-70% water. It’s why we have to ‘slop’ em on and then keep doing it every few hours. Not ours. Because Skinnies isn’t diluted with water, you use a small amount once a day. It also dries in a jiffy, and isn’t white & greasy.
Bloody clever eh? And because we’re an environmentally conscious lot, and we agree with our mate Al Gore that the planet needs a little help right now, we’ve made sure that Skinnies is as nice to the environment as it is to your skin. It goes without saying that all our packaging is recyclable and that because we make Skinnies down under (in New Zealand, by the best in the business for the harshest sun conditions in the world), we work hard to keep our carbon footprint to more of a carbon toeprint.
We’re committed to the environment and committed to building the best little suncare brand in the world to keep you lot safe as in the sunshine. That’s us and that’s our philosophy. And all you need to remember is - a little goes a long way!

Rotorua is the centre of a very active thermal environment and as you enter the city you can see the thermal activity happening as normal city life goes on around it.
Mud bath and therapies have been popular for thousands of years. It is believed that mud has anti-inflammatory properties, so soaking in mud and its minerals can help to relieve aches and muscle pains. And, thanks to its exfoliating properties, it leaves you with smooth and soft skin.
- Thermal mud is the ‘ancestor’ of beauty & body treatments
- The tradition of slathering mud on your body goes back centuries.
