Obagi REBALANCE Skin Barrier Recovery Cream FAQ's

    • What skin concerns will benefit from Obagi REBALANCE and how is this achieved? 
      • Obagi Rebalance comforts, rehydrates and rebalances sensitized, compromised and post-procedure skin. It does this using a unique formulation consisting of BarrierPlex™ Technology as well as anti-inflammatory Niacinamide and hydrating Squalane.
    • What is BarrierPlex Technology? 
      • This is an innovative, proprietary blend of postbiotics, hydrating agents and soothing ingredients. Postbiotics are the chemical by-product of bacteria that help to maintain a healthy microbial environment and help with cellular renewal. BarrierPlex Technology also includes green algae, which soothes irritation and promote skin recovery, whilst ceramides support the skin barrier function. 
    • When should I use Obagi REBALANCE? 
      • Regular AM and PM, continuous use is recommended. The product works well with any Obagi® products and can be used as a post procedural option, as directed by your practitioner. 
    • What is the difference between Obagi Hydrate and Rebalance? 
      •  Both products can be applied in conjunction with all Obagi skincare regimes. The two can actually be used in combination, for more compromised skin presentations, some may consider applying Obagi Rebalance and then apply Hydrate on top. Obagi Hydrate focuses on the hydration element of the skin, the advanced formula offers long lasting hydration post application. Rebalance focuses on the skin barrier, microbiome and recovery of the skin, as well as hydrating and soothing elements. It is also worth noting that the texture of Rebalance is lighter than Hydrate.
