Obagi Skin Care
Obagi skin care products are in a class all their own. A leader in skin care health, Obagi's medical-strength products transform the skin and deliver unparalleled results for people suffering skin conditions like hyperpigmentation, rosacea, sun damage, premature aging, and adult acne.
Founded in 1988, Obagi continues to provide clinically-proven, prescription-strength skin health products and systems designed to improve penetration of targeted treatments. Used to minimize the appearance of many skin conditions including skin discolorations, acne, sun damage, and premature aging, Obagi products are continually researched and tested to effectively address many skin care concerns.
Two of the main ingredients in Obagi skincare products, Trentinoin and hydroquinone, work together to improve the look and feel of the skin. Trentinoin is an acid form of vitamin A that accelerates cellular turnover and promotes collagen and elastin production to minimize fine lines and wrinkles for younger looking skin. At a cellular level, hydroquinone inhibits melanin production, resulting in a brighter, more even looking skin tone.
Sun damage is the number one cause of premature aging. This type of aging, called photoaging, is a serious concern. Exposure to the sun's UVA and UVB rays throws off the delicate balance between cell sloughing and cell renewal. The renewal process slows dramatically, and collagen and elastin break down, resulting in a dull complexion, wrinkles, and sagging. To combat the effects of photoaging, Obagi created the Nu-Derm System.
Penetrating deep below the skin's surface, the Nu-Derm System transforms skin at the cellular level, exfoliating away dead skin cells to reveal the healthy, vibrant skin underneath.
