For those familar with Obagi skin care products you are well aware of the quality of the original but now outdated skin care line. Due to Dr. Obagi's tremendous success with the original Obagi Nu-derm products, he sold his skin care line in 1997 to a group of investors. His role in the company from there forward began to diminish. Mega-corporation Valeant recently bought Obagi Medical Products for some $344 MILLION dollars. Unfortuanately along with these sales came a stagnation in new product development. The products that were newly developed during that time had the Obagi name but werent developed by Dr. Obagi himself. They bought Dr. Obagi's products, but they couldn't buy his brillant mind. As Dr. Obagi says himself, "Skin health science, like any other science, is not static". Dr. Obagi states that the need for improvement, expansion, and continuous adjustment is not only essential, but also necessary in obtaining optimal treatment results. What makes ZO skin health, Inc. different is their Universal Approach to Skin Health. Using the original principles Dr. Obagi identified 25 years ago when he started, and the newly found principles of today, such as anti-inflammatory agents, DNA repair, barrier function enhancement, and non-hydroquinone pigment control, he has developed a state-of-the art skin care line. Today, Dr. Obagi has no relationship with Obagi Medical Products. Instead what we have upon us is a new, exciting, efficacious line of skin health care products created to treat various skin related conditons and products designed for continued daily skin care health.
