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.

Best spf I've tried

By 

from Philadelphia, PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about oil free matte spf30:

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.

Not my favourite Dermalogica product

By 

from Hertfordshire

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.

THE BEST SKIN PROTECTION TO PERFECTION!

By 

from Brisbane, Australia

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

By 

from Hawaii

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.

  • Q:

    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)...

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

      Hello Peter,

  • Q:

    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!
