A cooling, refining and deep-cleaning Kaolin and Bentonite clay masque that purifies, absorbs excess surface oil and helps prevent future breakouts. Use after cleansing to enhance skin clearing and control the main factors that contribute to breakouts.

Oil- absorbing clays help detoxify skin as Salicylic Acid stimulates natural exfoliation to clear pore congestion. Soothe aggravation brought on by breakouts with cooling botanicals, and help purify, refine and eliminate excess oils for clearer skin.

Benefits of Sebum Clearing Masque

  • Imparts a cooling sensation on skin to help soothe breakout irritation.
  • Absorbs excess oils and refines skin texture.
  • Helps purify and manage the four main factors that contribute to acne development.
  • Gluten-free
  • Vegan
  • No artificial fragrances and colours
  • Paraben-free
  • Cruelty-free

How Sebum Clearing Masque Works

  • Salicylic Acid exfoliates dead skin cells and clears congested follicles to minimize development of future comedones and breakouts.
  • Kaolin and Bentonite clays absorb excess oil.
  • Spiraea Ulmaria Extract inhibits bacteria by stimulating the skin’s natural anti-bacterial agents.
  • Niacinamide, Yeast Extract, Horse Chestnut, Licorice, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5) and Caffeine regulate sebum production and soothe inflammation.
  • Zinc Gluconate and Caffeine help regulate sebum production and help control bacterial metabolism of sebum-reducing inflammation.
  • A patent-pending Cinnamon Bark blend inhibits bacterial lipid metabolism and degradation of enzymes while eliminating bacteria and providing astringent properties.
  • Oat Kernel, Bisabolol and Licorice help soothe irritated skin.
  • Farnesyl and Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5) strengthen follicle membrane.

The MediBac Clearing® system works to treat, clear and prevent adult breakouts while addressing the needs of adult skin. Most products and treatments for breakouts are designed for teenage skin, making them too harsh and irritating for adult breakout sufferers. MediBac Clearing® controls breakouts without compromising skin’s integrity, which means skin is clearer and healthier.

How to use Dermalogica Sebum Clearing Masque

Apply a smooth layer to cleansed face and throat (avoiding the eye area) 3 times per week. May also be used exclusively on the T-zone. Leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with warm water.


Dermalogica Sebum Clearing Masque combines Niacinamide, Zinc Gluconate, Yeast Extract, Caffeine and Biotin to purify and inhibit overactive sebaceous gland activity while soothing irritation. Salicylic Acid clears congested follicles to minimize development of future comedones and breakouts, while Spiraea and Cinnamon Bark extracts inhibit the growth of acnegenic bacteria while stimulating the skin’s natural antimicrobial agents for clearer, healthier skin. Contains no artificial fragrance or colour.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can this be used as an exfoliator?

This masque contains exfoliating ingredients. However, you can still use it with Daily Microfoliant or Skin Prep Scrub if you wish.

How old do you have to be to use this product?

Sebum Clearing Masque is for adult acne.

Will this help withcombination and oily skin? Also with sebaceous filaments around the nose?

Sebum Clearing Masque is ideal for oily skin that struggles with acne. Skin Refining Masque is ideal for oily skin. Charcoal Rescue Masque will brighten the skin and detox pores. That being said, Sebum Clearing Masque may be the best option 

Is this product safe for pregnant women?

Sebum Clearing Masque contains Salicylic Acid and therefore, it is not recommended for use during pregnancy. You might refer Skin Refining Masque or Charcoal Rescue Masque. Both are safe to use while pregnant.

can the sebum clearing mask be used as an overnight spot treatment?

Please use Sebum Clearing Masque 1-3 times per week for 10 minutes. For an overnight spot treatment, I recommend Overnight Clearing Gel. It is effective and hydrating.

Can a 12 year old use this for breakouts and acne ?

Please use the masque on areas with breakouts only.

Does this clear tiny bumps on the cheeks?

This masque can help acne. For tiny bumps, also called under surface congestion, we suggest Charcoal Rescue Masque.

Is this ok for oily and sensitive skin ?

Sebum Clearing Masque is ideal for oily/acneic skin. If you are oily, Skin Refining Masque may be better. If you are sensitive, try using the masque only once a week, instead of 3 times per week.

  • This product really works. No irritation when applied although I have sensitive/oily skin and I use this and the environmentally sensitive range combined otherwise my pores would be totally clogged due to my excess sebum production.
