What are the Obagi-C® Systems?
The patented Obagi-C® Systems are complete skin care regimens that proactively correct signs of damage to help restore and maintain healthy, radiant skin. These systems offer the benefits of both prescription-strength hydroquinone and potent Vitamin C in 2 comprehensive packages that are suitable for all skin types, including normal to oily skin and normal to dry skin.
What will the Obagi-C® Systems do for my skin?
Prescription-strength 4% hydroquinone plus 10% L-ascorbic acid has proven aesthetic advantages:
•Improves the appearance of hyperpigmentation (discoloration)
•Accelerates skin turnover to restore balance, radiance, and clarity to lackluster skin
•Promotes skin rejuvenation from the inside out with Vitamin C, the only topical antioxidant proven to stimulate collagen synthesis
•Minimises future skin cell damage by neutralising free radicals and protecting the skin
•Maximises antioxidant absorption due to a low pH level (low pH also means greater antioxidant stability and a longer shelf life than other leading Vitamin C products)
Why is Vitamin C important?
Vitamin C belongs to an important group of antioxidants that fight the free radicals that age your skin. Studies have shown topical Vitamin C, in the most effective form (L-ascorbic acid), can help improve sun protection, repair sun-damaged skin, reduce fine lines, stimulate collagen-building, and potentially reduce discoloration of the skin.
How are Obagi-C® Systems different from other Vitamin C products?
Many companies offer a cosmeceutical containing Vitamin C, but it’s important for you to know that not all Vitamin C products are created equal. Clinical data show the patented Obagi-C® formulation delivers more L-ascorbic acid into the skin and remains in the skin longer than SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF®, another leading Vitamin C skin care product.1
