Dr Suzan Obagi MD, is a Board-certified Dermatologist and Cosmetic surgeon. She is the author of more than 40 peer-reviewed articles and Associate Professor of Dermatology and Associate Professor of Plastic Surgery. She is also the daughter of the original founder of Obagi skincare products, Dr Zein Obagi, who sold his share in Obagi Medical many years ago.
In another achievement, Dr Suzan Obagi has collaborated with Obagi Medical to develop the SuzanObagiMD line which we’re proud to launch onto Dermastore in South Africa. Her goal with this range was to create products with clinically studied, dermatologist-tested ingredients that provide an effective regimen but with a gentle touch. It was also important to her that the products offered the perfect balance.
Powerful ingredients with Purposeful Exclusions
The combination of clinically-proven ingredients and antioxidants has resulted in a range that offers unique formulations to reduce the appearance of photo-aged skin: fine lines and wrinkles, rough skin texture and lacklustre, delicate skin.
In keeping with her commitment to safety and environmental responsibility, Dr Obagi felt that what they left out of the products was just as important as what they put in. She says just as no two patients are alike, neither are their skins and that is why her philosophy around this skincare line enables patients to incorporate products that are individualized to fit their skincare needs.
This range offers advanced complimentary products that Cleanse, Protect and Renew to help you achieve healthier looking, more radiant skin and can be incorporated along with other products in the Obagi range.
Our skins are under constant attack from the environment and we need gentle ingredients to help to support them. The SuzanObagiMD range is suitable for all ages and skin types including sensitive and post-procedure skin. In a busy world, the less fuss a home skincare range can offer the more popular it is.
This line has 7 products to Cleanse, Protect and Renew – it removes dirt and impurities, defends against UV radiation and rejuvenates:
Cleansing the skin is the first step as it removes dirt, oil and debris that may clog pores and prevent your products from properly absorbing into your skin.
This micro-foam cleanser is wonderfully thick, creamy and with a luxurious mousse, formulation to gently, yet deeply cleanse the skin of all dirt, makeup and impurities for skin that feels clean and refreshed.
Formulated with 2% salicylic acid, these wipes will cleanse and refresh the skin while targeting blemishes and preventing future breakouts. They are ideal for when you are on-the-go to the gym or yoga class and will be wet with sweat after a great workout session. If you have acne-prone skin or know someone that does, these wipes are a must, as the effort in taking care of your body by exercising shouldn’t backfire on your face. Teenagers will love these too, as they can be used at school after playing sports or taking a physical education class.
The cleansing wipes ensure your skin care needs are taken care of no matter where you are, be it after a workout at the gym or a steamy yoga session; these cleansing wipes have got you covered! Packed with skin-soothing ingredients, they make a perfect on-the-go solution to removing excess oil, makeup, dirt and other impurities. Keep a pack in your car, gym bag, purse or at work.
This toner not only ensures that all traces of oil and impurities are removed from the skin but it also helps to balance the skin’s natural pH, as well as control excess oil and minimize the look of large pores.
The second step in this 3-step process provides protection against the skin’s worst enemy – the sun. UV damage is the number one cause of accelerated skin ageing, so an SPF is key to protect and proactively minimize the signs of photo-ageing.
Hydrating, yet perfectly lightweight, this moisturizer will soon become a staple in your daily skincare regimen. This advanced formula helps to hydrate parched, delicate skin while blurring minor imperfections and providing physical UVA and UVB protection. This is an excellent choice to use after an aesthetic treatment or procedure, as it helps protect the skin, improving its appearance and aiding in a smoother recovery. The added broad-spectrum sun protection helps protect your investment and maintain your results.
Lastly, renew and rejuvenate your skin complexion and texture with clinically proven ingredients. Intensive Daily Repair (IDR) is a hydrating lotion that contains Gluconolactone and Lactobionic acid, which are Poly Hydroxy Acids (PHAs) that gently yet effectively exfoliate the skin to minimize the look of pores and visible signs of ageing while providing overall skin rejuvenation. PHAs have very similar benefits to Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) but are much gentler and cause less irritation.
This skin rejuvenating complex combines Retinaldehyde (a gentle derivative of Vitamin A) and other clinically studied ingredients to minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles by improving skin texture for a smoother, more youthful complexion.
Whether you have oily, acne-prone skin or dry, mature skin, this product line has products that can target your specific skin care concerns. Powerful ingredients and purposeful exclusions make for next-generation skin care that will gently and effectively transform your skin.
