This breakout fighting foaming wash clears away dead skin cells, dirt and excess oils that clog pores and cause breakouts. Use on your face, back, neck ... wherever skin requires deep cleaning and pore clearing for fewer breakouts. If your skin is oily with congestion or breakouts, select a medicated wash to tackle breakout causing bacteria for a deep clean without stripping skin's essential moisture.

Why use Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash?

  • Salicylic Acid dives deep into pores, clearing dead skin cells and trapped oils to help wipe out existing and future breakouts.
  • Formulated with 8 botanicals including Tea Tree, Lavender and Camellia Sinensis, known to gently soothe and calm irritated skin.
  • Orange Peel Extract revives, energizes and refreshes.
  • Gluten-free
  • Vegan
  • No artificial fragrances and colours
  • Paraben-free
  • Cruelty-free

Clear Start is a system of nine serious products that utilize medicated ingredients and soothing botanicals to deliver real results.

Clear Start™ was created by the skin health experts at Dermalogica, the brand that’s been changing the face of skin care for more than 25 years. It became clear that no one was addressing the needs of teens – not only with products that get results, but also with the education they need – when Dermalogica Founder Jane Wurwand’s own daughters entered their teenage years.

Skin care product choices available to teens may be ample, but they aren’t good choices. Products for teens often contain harsh and inexpensive ingredients to strip the skin of oil, and are filled with artificial fragrances and colors – all things that can irritate and strip oil from skin, causing more problems than you started with!

How to use Dermalogica Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash

Morning and night, lather a small amount 
in damp hands, then rub over face, neck, chest ... anywhere you want to wipe out dirt and breakouts. Keep out of your eyes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe to use during pregnancy?

Please do not use this product during pregnancy as it contains Salicylic Acid

Is this good for a teenager even if they have had a breakout after using it`?

 It is normal to purge in the beginning. However, they should follow the cleanser with moisturiser to keep the skin balanced. I recommend Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion

What is the difference between this and the other acne face wash?

Clear Start is for teen acne which is caused by puberty and genetics. It has a fast healing time. MediBac is for adult acne which is caused by hormones, stress, genetics, pollution, lifestyle, etc. It has a slow healing time and is also affected by aging.

When can a difference be noticed ?

Everyone's skin is different so it is hard to say. Teen acne can be caused by puberty and genetics.  The most important thing to keep in mind is to be patient and persistent with the products. Be sure to use them every morning and night for consistent results and healthy skin.

Does make up need to be removed first before using the cleanser?

remove the makeup with Precleanse first and follow with Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash.

  • After trying the kit for my niece and seeing the results I decided to treat her to a full size bottle as it seems to be the only thing that can clear up her skin quickly whilst being gentle. Her skin’s happy, she’s happy.

Why it's Important to Use a Gentle Cleanser for Breakouts

Picture the scene… you’re a few days away from that big night out... or that all important first date… or that important presentation at work. You wake up… look in the mirror… and there it is - the start of a breakout.
