ZO Skincare

In the late eighties and early nineties, Dr. Zein Obagi invented the original Obagi Nu-Derm® system and the Obagi Blue Peel® kit – the most widely recognized brands of physician-dispensed skincare products in the world.

Since then, Dr. Zein Obagi’s thinking has evolved. Based on the latest advances in skin restoration and rejuvenation technologies, Dr. Zein Obagi’s new line of products – ZO® Skin Health and ZO® Medical – are again raising the bar for skin health.

As we age, skin loses its ability to renew itself. By age 30, most cells become inactive and will not function properly. When this occurs, skin gets dull, dry, weaker, thinner and sensitive. Dr. Zein Obagi hopes that ZO® products will replace the outdated skin care regimens most consumers currently follow.

Reversing cellular damage requires (1) an ingredient to activate and awaken skin cells, (2) nutrients to nourish the cells, and (3) antioxidants to protect skin cells from further damage. ZO® Skin Health products contain:

  • The highest concentration of retinol available without a prescription
  • Nutrients that prepare, hydrate, stimulate, repair and renew
  • Antioxidants to restore the skin’s ability to repair itself and protect the skin without irritating side effects

In his practice, Dr. Zein Obagi has found that ZO® Skin Health products will make skin strong, healthy and keep it looking and acting younger.
