Helps Treat: Acne-prone, ageing skin with blemishes or uneven texture

Feels Like: A lightweight cream

Recommended For: Those looking for a gentle but effective retinol product to create a more youthful, blemish free look

Retinol is an anti-ageing skincare hero, with the power to turn back the years and reduce the visible signs of ageing. That's why Obagi has introduced the Obagi® Retinol 1.0, a skin-transforming formulation with 1% retinol to gently resurface the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


This formula doesn't just contain any retinol, this is microencapsulated retinol, meaning that it will absorb into the skin gradually, breaking down in the layers of the skin over time. This reduces irritation, so you can experience all the amazing benefits of retinol without the redness that can sometimes occur.


This product is a key part of the OBAGI360® range. Due to the microencapsulated form of retinol, this product is suitable for retinol newbies and those who have a reasonable tolerance to the ingredient.


Retinol speeds up cell turnover, this reduces wrinkle depth, making it a brilliant anti-ageing product. However it also exfoliates away dead skin cells, preventing congestion, also making this product a great choice for those looking to tackle blemishes.






How to Use
Apply a small amount of Obagi® Retinol 1.0 to cleansed, dry skin. For PM use only. Ensure you wear SPF when exposed to the sun when using this product in your routine.
