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.

The perfect everyday moisturizer with SPF


Never would I dare leave the house without final application of Oil Free Matte. I use it after toning with Multi Active Toner, followed by Biolumin-C serum.

Orinda, CA




Why have I not been using this for ages! I love the Pure Light 50 SPF but at the end of the day it feels and often stays on/in my skin like sunscreen. This, however, is incredible. I love the lightweight feeling of both SPF and oily/acne prone skin moisturising. 100% would recommend.



I would buy this product again


This moisturizer is great! Non greasy, has a light sunscreen scent... Feels good on the skin...after a few hours it does leave a slight film. Love that it is spf 30... if I had anything I would want to change about it I would love if it had the same feel as the oil free clearing moisturizer. But I will be buying it again because of the spf. It's great!

Best spf I've tried


Because I have oily skin I always avoided sunscreen because they all felt too heavy on my skin. I've been trying this SPF for about two weeks and I'm very pleased. It does go on a little heavy but it quickly absorbs into my skin without leaving a sticky residue. My makeup goes on well on top of it. So far I love it. I am waiting to see how it'll hold up when it gets warmer.

Irritates my skin


Irritates my skin horribly and ends up making me extremely oily since my skin gets irritated. Very uncomfortable.



Not my favourite Dermalogica product


I use quite a few products in the medibac range and love them because they help me control my blemish-prone skin. Unfortunately I have not got on with the oil free matte sunscreen. I found the forum lovely to put on and it was perfect under makeup, however after applying it my skin began to sting a little and after removing my makeup and the spf at the end of the day my skin was inflamed and lots of small blemishes had popped up. I tried the product for a while to see whether my skin would get used to it and found it felt better when I applied it on top of the ultracalm serum but negativity I still kept getting red, blemished skin so I had to stop using it.



Works so well!


My skin is oily and always had a shine until I started using this!! It works great!

Pittsburgh Pa




I have combination skin type, and even barely have acne but I love using it everyday. This product completely the best sun protection ever! Unlike other similar products of sun protection which mostly leave a greasy feel and not to mentioned that 'white-ghostly look' especially for darker skin tones, it has everything you ever dream about: protection to perfection! It's the winner product! Thank you Dermalogica.

Best SPF


I LOVE this product! I only need a small amount to cover my face after I use cleanser in the morning. It prevents shine on my face all day, feels light, and protects from the sun.



Great results!


I use this in the mornings after I wash and spray my hydramist, a little goes a long way and it is perfect for controlling my t-zone and keeping my face with a matte finish all day long. Bonus that it has spf!

I have been using Precleanse, Dermal Clay Cleanser, Daily Exfoliant, Breakout control, Oil Control Lotion and Overnight Clearing Gel (night only). All prescribed and recommended by a Dermalogica stockist. She told me last week to only use Oil Control Lotion at night now and use Oil Matte SPF30 during the day. My face is now very oily. I do understand why she said to use SPF, so what are the alternatives??


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

When will this be back in stock please?


Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. I apologize. That item is currently out of stock due to high demand. There is no update at this time. We are doing our best to get it back in stock asap. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Is this product classified as waterproof? In other words, would it provide sun protection while swimming laps outdoors? I understand the instructions say to reapply after swimming but what about during outdoor activity (sweating, water)...


Hello Julie, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Protection 50 Sport SPF 50. It is water resistant for up to 80 minutes. So be sure to reapply. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Do you recommend using a moisturizer under this product? Or is the product sufficiently moisturizing to not need a separate moisturizer?


Hello Peter, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. If you are oily, this will be enough on its own. If you are combination, you can apply it on top of Active Moist. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi, I am looking for a water based SPF to use in addition to active moist moisturizer. I have combination skin. Would this be the recommended product or should I purchase the solar defense booster.


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may like Oil Free Matte SPF 30 best. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Does oil free matter spf30 contain silicones?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. The product contains a small amount of Dimethicone/Methicone to give the face a smooth appearance. For your reference, the ingredient list is at the bottom of every product page. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Is it safe to use during pregnancy? Thanks


Hello Maria, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This product is safe to use during pregnancy.

I was looking for sunscreen for my oily acne prone skin so I purchased medi-bac oil free matte spf30. The trial size perfect canvas was a gift with my purchase and I wore that combination alone on my Sunday no-makeup day and my skin didn't feel oily or tight, but quite comfortable. Yesterday was my first day using the sunscreen and I noticed my cheeks and jawline felt itchy all day. I combined the sunscreen with a touch of the skin smoothing cream, so I thought I was adding too much moisture. Today, I tried the sunscreen alone and it immediately felt itchy so I had to wash it off right away. As a side note, I also have noticeable pores on my cheeks and nose, and my cheeks often erupt into painful, pus-filled pimples. Is this product suitable for my type of skin or is there another sunscreen that may suit my skin better? Thanks for your help!


Hello Lisa, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This product may not be for you. You may prefer Solar Defense Booster SPF 50. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I recently ordered a bottle of Oil Free Matte. The box and the bottle no longer say SPF 30. There is no mention in the description on the box or bottle of SPF or sun protection. Is this product still SPF 30?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, the product offers SPF 30 UV protection. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Does it protect against UVA Rays too? And can I apply Mineral Powder or Foundation on it?


Hello Tina, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. All of our SPF products offer broad spectrum UV protection. You can apply the makeup of your choice on top of this. Kind Regards, Bernadette
