Soothing Eye Makeup Remover is a standard, but good, detergent-based eye-makeup remover that is free of fragrance and the irritating plant extracts and fragrant oils Dermalogica puts in their facial cleansers.

An efficient, clean-rinsing make-up remover specially formulated to instantly dissolve all traces of eye and lip make-up, including stubborn mascara. Completely oil-free, alcohol-free and water-soluble, this soothing, conditioning gel contains Silk Amino Acids to help strengthen lashes and condition the delicate eye lid area. With no irritation, stinging or oily after-feel, this gentle formula is ideal for contact lens wearers. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

Water/Aqua/Eau, Disodium Lauroamphodiacetate, Sodium Trideceth Sulfate, Hexylene Glycol, Silk Amino Acids, Citric Acid, Sodium Chloride, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Tetrasodium EDTA, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

Dermalogica's name implies a logical relationship to dermatology, which makes it sound as if you are getting serious skin care. The subtitle on their products is even more commanding: "A Skin Care System Researched and Developed by the International Dermal Institute." But what is the International Dermal Institute, you ask? Are there any dermatologists there? Apparently not: The International Dermal Institute is a Dermalogica-owned school for aestheticians who want an education beyond what is required for their cosmetology license, and the classes are taught by aestheticians.

Does the professional atmosphere of the school associated with Dermalogica mean better products? The proof is in the pudding, and this pudding is, for the most part, just Jell-O, not chocolate mousse. A company so concerned with skin-care education should be ashamed of itself for offering so many products that damage skin with known irritants and, more egregiously, offering so many sunscreens that lack sufficient UVA-protecting ingredients. Dermalogica's education-oriented, serious-minded, and clinical positioning doesn’t mesh with the majority of their products, and is on par with tobacco company executives teaching an aerobics class.

According to company history, the reason Dermalogica products came to be was that founder Jane Wurwand could not find a spa-oriented skin-care line that met her criteria. She was dismayed that so many skin-care lines aimed at the aesthetics market had products that contained alcohol, artificial colors, fragrance, mineral oil, and lanolin, ingredients that she believed had a well-documented history of problems. That's true for fragrance and alcohol (and artificial colors to a lesser extent), but mineral oil and lanolin have no documented history of causing skin problems. If anything, quite the opposite is true. Further, if Dermalogica's founders were so concerned about potentially or definitively harmful ingredients, why do their products contain so many of them? Where is the research proving that lavender oil, camphor, balm mint, arnica, ginger oil, and citrus oils are helpful for skin?

    • I have been using this product for about 15 years. Never causes break outs, irritation of skin or eyes. I use this as an all over facial makeup remover even though it's called an Eye Makeup remover. Silly that we are sold on ideas that we need a separate eye makeup remover as though your skin knows the difference. IF a remover is gentle enough for your eyes, surely it can be trusted to remove facial makeup too. This formula also easily & gently removes all waterproof mascaras & eyeliners.
