Obagi Medical Products Inc is a global specialty pharmaceutical company founded by leading skin care experts in 1988, and is now owned by Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. Obagi products are designed to help minimise the appearance of premature skin ageing, skin damage, hyperpigmentation, acne, and sun damage and are primarily available through dermatologists, plastic surgeons, medical spas, and other skin care professionals.
Since launching in South Africa in 2015 their products have started to impact on the local market with exceptional results especially the Professional-C Serums. We wrote about their launch here, and the Professional-C Serums here.
Now, Obagi have added two new products to the Professional-C range
Professional-C Suncare SPF 30
Unique luxurious broad spectrum sunscreen with free-radical scavenger antioxidants provides double defense protection against environmental damage. The silky-soft lightweight gel formulation is absorbed into the skin without leaving a white residue and is able to penetrate quickly providing instant protection against the damaging UV rays.
This dual action sunscreen contains a broad-spectrum SPF 30 (Avobenzone, Homosalate & Oxbenzone) which protects against skin damaging UVA and UVB rays and 10% L-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) which helps to combat the visible signs of skin ageing by complementing collagen synthesis. Silicones give a silky feel and help to lock in moisture by preventing trans epidermal water loss. Professional-C Suncare SPF 30 Is an essential addition to any daily skin care regime.
Suitable for all skin types. Non-comedogenic. Paraben-free.
Professional-C Eye Brightener
Targeted brightening eye cream, which contains growth factors and L-Ascorbic acid to penetrate deeply into the skin around the delicate eye area, strengthening the skin and helping to improve the appearance of dark circles and crepiness.
Key ingredients include L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) together with natural growth factors Kinetin and Zeatin help to improve firmness, tone and to soften fine lines and crow’s feet around the eye area while giving a radiance to the skin. Soft Focus Technology creates optical diffusion, blurring the appearance of fine lines and shadows.
Suitable for all skin types. Paraben-free.
