About the Obagi-C Rx Skin Care System
Obagi-C Rx Skin Care System for Photolumines Skin is the only Vitamin C System that combines a patented formula of 4% prescription strength Hydroquinone and professional strength Vitamin C to deliver superior penetration to all levels of the skin resulting in Photolumines Skin. The name was chosen to describe the more radiant, luminescent skin that results from the combination of well-known ingredients such as Vitamins C and E, hydroquinones, hyaluronidase, glycolics and sunscreens. True radiance comes from within as regeneration of skin is improved and the Obagi-C Rx System will help your skin become brighter with measurable radiance. This system will also smooth and hydrate your skin as well as even out your skin tone.
The Benefits of These Ingredients:
Vitamin C and E are thought of as "healing" antioxidants because they help the skin recover from injuries such as ultraviolet radiation, smoking, pollution, stress, alcohol consumption, diets, and other environmental toxins. L-ascorbic acid is the active form of Vitamin C and is the most abundant antioxidant in the skin. Topical Vitamin C is absorbed through the skin providing significant protection against photodamage (ultraviolet radiation). Vitamin C absorbs both UVA and UVB rays, improves collagen synthesis and is anti-inflammatory.
Physician-strength 4% hydroquinone has long been considered the gold standard for treating uneven skin tone. Hydroquinone slows the production of melanin, causing dark spots to gradually fade and return to normal skin color.
Hyaluronidase enhances the hydration of the skin and improves the penetration of products.
Glycolics enhance exfoliation, resulting in more rapid cellular turnover, which helps remove injured and dead cells and also improves the penetration of products.
Sunscreens help protect your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays.
Obagi-C Rx System is a less aggressive system than the Obagi Nu-Derm System and is especially suitable for people who may not need the strength of the Obagi Nu-Derm System.
The Obagi-C Rx System is available in a Starter Kit for both normal to oily skin and for normal to dry skin:
