who we are

Hey, nice to meet you. We’re Clear Start, a brand created by the professional skin experts at Dermalogica. We specialize in targeting breakouts, blackheads and shine to help you achieve your healthiest skin. Our formulas are clinically-proven, technology-driven and designed to nurture (not strip) your skin.

Just like our creators, we were built on the belief that skin health is more important than “beauty”, which is why we also firmly believe in skin positivity and acne acceptance (repeat after us – breakouts aren’t a flaw, they’re just a fact of life).

We’re as serious about making cruelty-free vegan products as we are about achieving healthy skin for all. (Very.) The evidence: We have the cruelty-free tick of approval from Leaping Bunny and PETA and you won’t find any animal-derived ingredients hiding out in our products.


We don’t just throw around phrases like ‘clinically proven’ and ‘scientifically proven’ to show that we’re smart. Science is at the core of what we do.


things you’ll never find in our products:

Sulphates, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, parabens, mineral oil, lanolin, S.D. alcohol and microplastics.
