Obagi offers several exfoliating products-utilizing either chemical or mechanical stimulation (or both)-to help accelerate skin turnover. Obagi exfoliating products that work via chemical stimulation use alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) to remove old skin cells, while mechanical stimulation products use a physical substance (like biodegradable beads or granules) to manually scrub the top layer of the skin.
Obagi Nu-Derm® Exfoderm® and Obagi Nu-Derm Exfoderm Forte exfoliate the top layer of skin with glycolic and lactic acids* or phytic acid, removing dull old skin cells while promoting new skin cells for a brighter complexion. Typically, Exfoderm is suggested for normal to dry skin and Exfoderm Forte for normal to oily skin.
Obagi-C® Rx C-Exfoliating Day Lotion hydrates with lightweight moisturizers and ascorbyl glucoside, a derivative of vitamin C, and gently exfoliates normal to dry skin with glycolic acid* to reveal a brighter, healthier-looking complexion.
Obagi360TM Exfoliating Cleanser works both chemically and mechanically using two sizes of soft beads to remove dead skin cells that can cause dull, dry, uneven skin while thoroughly cleansing with enzymes to reveal a soft, smooth, radiant complexion.
