Who is Dermalogica MediBac Breakout Control for?

MediBac Breakout Control is ideal for anyone experiencing breakouts who prefers antibacterial ingredients over more traditional acne treatments like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. This uniquely calming formula is also a great choice for acne-prone skin that’s also dry or sensitive. Suitable for all ages, genders, and skin types.


How do antibacterials fight acne?

Acne is formed within the pores when an excess of P. acnes bacteria feeds on dead skin cells and excess oil in the pores. Antibacterials help to kill P. acnes bacteria, halting their ability to feed and reproduce within the pores, which in turn stops acne in its tracks. Continued, sustained usage of antibacterial agents is recommended for those with persistent acne.
