Clearer skin starts now: bring the four contributing factors of breakouts under control.
The MediBac Clearing® system works to treat, clear and prevent adult breakouts while addressing the needs of adult skin. Most products and treatments for breakouts are designed for teenage skin, making them too harsh and irritating for adult breakout sufferers. MediBac Clearing® controls breakouts without compromising skin’s integrity, which means skin is clearer and healthier.
how it works
Dermalogica’s MediBac Clearing® system is formulated specifically to treat adult breakouts. Each product, with its unique breakout fighting and clearing ingredients, is designed to be layered upon the skin to provide around-the-clock, maximum control of the main factors that contribute to breakouts.
I use it morning and night. I always do the double cleanse to get extra smooth skin. Slowly clearing all the pimples i have on my face
Honestly since purchasing, my skin has been breaking out everyday. At first I thought it was just a purge but after almost 2 months of using this product, my skin is even worse than before I started using this cleanser. The pimples I am getting are also causing scaring which is really upsetting. Will not be using this any longer
great for clearing acne and great scent!
this product works like magic! it cleared my skin up and i have combination oily skin and prone to acne. this product is super great i would highly recommend to any age group!

Love but want to change bottle design
I love this product and use it everyday. It doesn't irritate my skin and leaves it feeling very refreshed. However, I am extremely disappointed with the design of the bottle. The cap manages to constantly leak and lots of product is often lost. This is expensive!!! I want to utilize all of it. It is basically impossible to travel with, and I'm constantly loosing product in the cap. Please change this design. I think all of the bottles should be more functional.
I have been using this product for over 8 yrs... i highly recommend it when you have acne issues.
I've been using this for years and love it
I use it every morning..it's SUPER concentrated so you only need half the size of a pea
Cleared my skin in a week
Adult acne, hormones went crazy when switching contraceptive pill and couldn't get my skin back to normal, this has cleared my skin within a week, amazing cleanser.
Finally after years of searching for a cleanser to help with my acne I finally found this! I've seen a huge difference in my skin. I know they say it is r for hormonal acne but it's definitely been helping mine on my jawline!
The Best I've Used
My skin was covered with cysts when I bought this skin wash. Within 5 days I was clearing well. Within 2 weeks they were gone. Today, 2 months later, the lingering deep red marks are fading. I've never been free of them.
I use the clearing skin wash twice a day and absolutely love it. It doesn't dry out my skin and I've noticed a significant improvement in the severity of breakouts.
I have a full face of acne but not exorbitantly, like 4-5 pimples on my forehead, 2-3 on each my cheeks and 6 around the mouth. Am I a candidate for the clearing skin wash or it would be too strong? Would the special cleanse be good enough? I'm in my 30's
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Special Cleansing Gel in the morning and Clearing Skin Wash at night.
Hi, for my skin it was recommended to use a ph balanced cleanser as I have multiple breakouts and congestion. What is the ph scale on this product?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. All of our cleansers are pH balanced to the skin and fall in a 4-6 range.
Hello, I would like to check there are no retinoids in dermalogica clearing face wash?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. There is no retinal in Clearing Skin Wash.
Hi, I am having trouble deciding between Clearing skin wash and Dermal clay cleanser. I have somewhat oily skin. And due to hormone medication Ive started taking recently, I've started getting breakouts on my chin and cheeks. I already use precleanse, hydramist, active moist, sebum mask. Please advice
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Dermal Clay Cleaner is for an extremely oily face. Clearing Skin Wash is for a full face of acne. You can use one in the morning and one at night if you have both concerns.
Does this help with acne scarring
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. There are two types of acne scars. For texture scars, laser treatment is your option. For post inflammatory hyper pigmentation (PIH), which are dark marks left behind from acne, you can try Daily Microfoliant, Charcoal Rescue Mask and SPF.
Can I use overnight retinol treatment whilst using this cleanser?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Try Special Cleansing Gel with Overnight Retinal Repair instead .
Hi There - I have been getting breakouts on my chin and forehead over the past couple months. Mostly whiteheads and cystic pimples under the skin.
Would this facewash help?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This cleanser is for a full face of acne. Try Sebum Clearing Mask or Overnight Clearing Gel if it is just on the forehead area.
Is this product safe to use during pregnancy?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please check with your doctor since this does contain Salicylic Acid.
Hi, I've had constant mild acne since 15. Have tried antibiotics, would this be the best product to recommend?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use this cleanser if you have a full face of acne and are no longer using antibiotics or similar prescriptions. Be sure to follow with a light weight moisturizer, like Active Moist.
Hi, I am looking for suitable Dermalogica product for my skin, I am 26 year old and I get spots on my face 2-3 times in a month
My skin gets oily and sometimes too dry, I don't know if I should be using medibac clearing product for breakouts in case it dries my skin out.
Could you please help me in choosing right products for my skin.
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. If you only have sporadic breakouts, you should not be using products designed for a full face of acne. Rather, keep your skin balanced, clean and healthy with products like Special Cleansing Gel, Multi Active Toner and Active Moist. If monthly breakouts still come about, you can spot treat them individually with Breakout Clearing Booster.
