mediBac clearing®

Clearer skin starts now: bring the four contributing factors of acne under control.

The MediBac Clearing® system works to treat, clear and prevent adult acne while addressing the needs of adult skin. Most products and treatments for acne are designed for teenage skin, making them too harsh and irritating for adult acne sufferers. MediBac Clearing® controls acne 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 acne. Each product, with its unique acne-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 acne.

Why is this product being discontinued?


This product is amazing for controlling shine, hydrating skin and stopping acne. It is highly recommended. The main products I use from this brand are being d/ced. I will shop other brands.



Have used for years and will continue for many more


I have very oily skin and this is the first product that has ever been able to help keep in under control while also moisturizing

Orlando Fl


I love this product. It's a game changer for sure.


I'm not oily at all anymore

Must-have for acne-prone skin


This product works wonders on my oily, acne-prone skin. Moisturizing is important, even with oily skin, and this is the only lotion I can use that doesn't turn my face into an oil slick by the end of the day. I use it morning and night and notice it makes my acne less inflamed and goes away much faster. This is the only lotion I've ever found that genuinely works for my skin type.



I will by this product again and again and again


I use this product daily and it keeps the oil away! I get complements on my natural glow. It's so light weight and a drop goes a long way.

Los Angeles, CA


good product


i have a oily skin and this lotion doesnt make my face shiny



This is the best oil control lotion I've ever used!


I don't understand why it's been discontinued with no replacement! It was the best lotion product I've ever used for my adult acne prone skin!

Dallas, TX


Fantastic product - the only one I have ever found to work


This is the only product I have found to keep shine at bay all day long. It is such a shame it has been discontinued with no similar replacement. The spf 30 product that you mentioned to me is not a replacement as I do not wish to apply suncream to some of my face and not to others :-(



I would buy this product over & over


This product is absolutely amazing if you have extremely oily skin like myself!! I don't get half as oily by the end of the day as I would if I wasn't using this product.

NSW, Australia




I started with a sample and loved it soooo much. Light non-greasy all day feel! Prevents shine. Amazing

Is this product coming back?!? I noticed it says "not available" as opposed to "discontinued". I called about a month ago and was told it is coming back, is that true. I also saw that the "Oily Skin Kit" is being discontinued. Why?? Are there new products for oily skin coming? I only recently discovered Dermalogica and never have found products like these. Please don't forget about us oily girls. We need good products too. Most products on the market target dry or sensitive skin.


Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. I apologize. That item has been discontinued to make way for our innovations. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Can this be used as a daytime moisturizer under makeup?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. For day time, try Oil Free Matte SPF 30. Kind Regards, Bernadette


I have been using this product and love it however I have noticed it is being discontinued. What's the closest alternative? Can you recommend another moisturiser that works in a similar way? Thanks.


Hello, You may like Active Moist or Oil Free Matte as a replacement. Thanks


I'm trying to determine the proper order of use of these products....precleanse, dermal clay cleanser, toner, oil control lotion, and clearing mattifyer, thanks!


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use the products in this way: Morning Dermal Clay Cleanser Multi Active Toner Clearing Mattifier Oil Free Matte SPF 30 Evening Precleanse Dermal Clay Cleanser Multi Active Toner Oil Control Lotion Kind Regards, Bernadette


Is it ok to use the oil control lotion on other acne prone areas on the body, such as the upper chest area?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Clearing Skin Wash and Breakout Clearing All Over Toner on those areas. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Has this product been discontinued? What can I use instead for oily skin?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Active Moist at night and Oil Free Matte SPF 30 during the day. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Hi, I have combination skin that can get oily during summer and dry in winter. What would be the best moisturisers/products for me to use? Thanks!


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Try Oil Free Matte SPF 30 during the day and Active Moist at night. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi Is the clearing mattifier no longer available? I was after an oil control product to use under make up. I have the oil free matt spf which i use when not wearing makeup, but the combination of makeup and spf makes me get pimples Hence looking for a non-spf oil control product. Thanks


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may like Active Moist. Kind Regards, Bernadette

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

I had a few questions & concerns about the products results ( oil control lotion ) . This has been my regimen prior to sleep considering I have really oily / acne prone skin : - clearing skin wash - multi active toner - clearing mattifier - oil control lotion Although every time I apply the oil control lotion, it tends to leave behind a white / chalky looking residue behind . I feel like it just doesn't fully absorb . I'm an 18 year old male which I assume has nothing to do with it . Thanks I appreciate it .


Hello Adrian, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Oil Free Matte SPF 30 during the day and Overnight Clearing Gel or Active Moist at night. Kind Regards, Bernadette
