Who is Dermalogica mediBac Oil Control Lotion for?

Dermalogica mediBac Oil Control Lotion is for those with serious overproduction of oil. This product is suited to all ages and genders, but only for oily skin types.

Should I apply SPF when using this product?

Yes. Sunscreen is always necessary when using products that contain acids like Salicylic Acid. Exfoliating acids can cause sun sensitivity that may lead to pigmentation and scarring for those with healing acne breakouts.
