Obagi-C® Rx Systems

Over-the-Top Protection You Won't Find Over-the-Counter

With Obagi-C Rx, you're on your way to healthier, refreshed, revitalized skin from cell to surface. Obagi-C Rx Systems promote skin rejuvenation from the inside out using a formulation of prescription-strength ingredients, which reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots, combined with 10% L-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)—the only topical antioxidant proven to stimulate collagen synthesis and protect your skin by minimizing future skin cell damage.

Obagi-C Rx Systems are ideal skin care if you have...

  • Minimal fine lines
  • Minimal unevenness of skin tone
  • Mild hyperpigmentation and minimal age spots
  • Intolerance to, or are not ready for, more aggressive anti-aging regimens
  • Dry, normal, oily, or even sensitive skin

Obagi-C Rx C-Balancing Toner

It is a combination of witch hazel with a diluted form of aloe vera, which work together to soften and moisturise skin without increasing sebum production.

Obagi-C Rx C-Balancing Toner is ideal for…

  • Returning moisture to the skin after cleansing
  • Improving skin tone and increasing hydration
  • Balancing the pH of the skin
  • Enhancing product penetration of the other components of the Obagi-C Rx System to ensure that the normal to oily skincare regimen achieves optimal results

Frequently asked questions

What are the Obagi-C Rx Systems?
The patented Obagi-C Rx Systems are complete skin care regimens that proactively correct signs of damage to help restore and maintain healthy, radiant skin. These systems offer the benefits of both prescription-strength hydroquinone and potent Vitamin C in 2 comprehensive packages that are suitable for all skin types, including normal to oily skin and normal to dry skin.
What will the Obagi-C Rx Systems do for my skin?
Prescription-strength 4% hydroquinone plus 10% L-ascorbic acid has proven aesthetic advantages:
  • Improves the appearance of hyperpigmentation (discoloration)
  • Accelerates skin turnover to restore balance, radiance, and clarity to lackluster skin
  • Promotes skin rejuvenation from the inside out with Vitamin C, the only topical antioxidant proven to stimulate collagen synthesis
  • Minimizes future skin cell damage by neutralizing free radicals and protecting the skin
  • Maximizes antioxidant absorption due to a low pH level (low pH also means greater antioxidant stability and a longer shelf life than other leading Vitamin C products)
Why is Vitamin C important?
Vitamin C belongs to an important group of antioxidants that fight the free radicals that age your skin. Studies have shown topical Vitamin C, in the most effective form (L-ascorbic acid), can help improve sun protection, repair sun-damaged skin, reduce fine lines, stimulate collagen-building, and potentially reduce discoloration of the skin.
How are Obagi-C Rx Systems different from other Vitamin C products?

Many companies offer a cosmeceutical that contains Vitamin C, but it's important for you to know that not all Vitamin C products are created equal. Clinical data show the patented Obagi-C Rx formulation delivers more L-ascorbic acid into the skin and remains in the skin longer than SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF®, another leading Vitamin C skin care product.1

Which Obagi-C Rx System is right for me?
There are 2 customized Obagi-C Rx Systems designed to treat all skin types. One system is for Normal to Dry Skin and the other is for Normal to Oily Skin. Ask your skin care specialist which system is right for you.

Clinically Proven Ingredients

Prescription-strength 4% Hydroquinone

  • Improves the appearance of hyperpigmentation (discoloration)
  • Accelerates skin turnover to restore balance, radiance, and clarity

Potent vitamin C — 10% L-ascorbic acid

  • Actively and deeply penetrates all layers of the skin (dermis, epidermis, and stratum corneum) to neutralize and protect against free radicals from environmental stressors, such as sun and smoke, that accelerate the visible signs of the aging process
  • Promotes skin rejuvenation from the inside out—Vitamin C is the only topical antioxidant proven to stimulate collagen synthesis
  • Maximizes antioxidant absorption due to a low pH level
    • Low pH also means greater antioxidant stability and a longer shelf life than other leading Vitamin C products

Proven, Superior Skin Penetration

When compared to SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF® in a recent study, the Vitamin C formulation of the Obagi-C Rx System provided 50% more penetration into the layers of the skin to provide greater antioxidant therapy and effectiveness.1
