Obagi: Leaders in Skin Health
Obagi believes in unleashing the skin’s full potential. That’s why their inclusive products are scientifically backed, with clinical quality formulas to promote healthy, future-facing skin. Their products are where medicine meets skincare.
Obagi launched back in 1988 with a small skincare line with a single signature product, the ground-breaking Obagi Nu-Derm System, and a passion to transform the skincare industry. Over time, the Obagi skincare repertoire grew to include Obagi360, Obagi CLENZIderm M.D., Obagi-C Rx and so much more. Their outstanding results are a testimony to this truly innovative brand.

What Can Obagi Do for Your Skin
- Maintain a Youthful Complexion
With Obagi, you can expect to maintain skin that is healthy and youthful looking. Systems like Obagi360 is explicitly designed for younger people to preserve the natural beauty and youth of their skin by encouraging healthy skin renewal to prevent the signs of ageing before they appear.
- Diminish Acne and Blemishes
Obagi can be used to treat acne of varying degrees of severity. CLENZIderm is the breakthrough acne solution from Obagi that treats and prevents acne at the source. It includes a liquid form of the uniquely formulated Benzoyl peroxide to deliver visibly clearer skin and sustainable results.
- Rejuvenate Skin
Obagi products are designed to rejuvenate the skin with their unique formulas. Elastiderm is a unique skincare range that has the added benefit of caffeine, which acts as an antioxidant; the bi-mineral complex makes the eye area look fresh and rejuvenated.
- Reduce Lines and Wrinkles
The most apparent signs of ageing in skin are visible fine lines and wrinkles. These are caused by tiny molecules known as ‘free radicals’, which are formed during skin function but dramatically increase during exposure to the sun, air pollution and other environmental assaults. Systems like the Obagi Professional-C serums neutralise free radicals to protect skin cells and stimulate collagen production, leaving firmer skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles.
- Smooth Out Uneven Skin Tone
Uneven skin tones can also contribute to skin looking aged beyond its years. Obagi360 is a proactive daily skincare system that helps to improve uneven skin tone, leaving skin fresh and glowing.
- Prevent and Protect from Damage
A huge component of good skincare is prevention, and Obagi products are designed to help protect the skin from damaging external factors such as sun damage and other environmental conditions. It is never too early to start taking care of your skin, and Obagi skincare systems can help to protect the skin from further damage.
How to Use Obagi
Obagi skincare systems come with step-by-step processes for using the products in the correct order and quantities. There are a lot of different products in the Obagi Nu-Derm System, for example, with each one having a particular job. This is generally referred to as being a four-step process, as follows:
- Prepare your skin using the foaming gel (oily skin) or gentle cleanser (dry skin). Follow this by using Obagi Nu-Derm Toner.
- Correct skin with the exfoderm or exfoderm forte. This improves the number of healthy skin cells by exfoliating dead surface skin cells.
- Stimulate collagen production with our prescription only creams. They increase blood flow to reverse sun damage.
- Look After your healthier looking skin by using the matte sun shield daily. This will protect the damage from happening again.
The Obagi360 System involves a three-step process that includes an exfoliating cleanser, a moisturising cream with SPF and a retinol cream. This daily skincare system is designed to improve dull, uneven skin tone and protect against future damage.
Some Obagi products are only available via prescription as they contain medicines.
