Obagi skin care products are an extremely popular choice for treating the signs of aging, but most important of all, they are definitely not a scam… they work! One of their most popular products is the Obagi tretinoin cream. They sell it in two different strengths – 0.05%, 0.025% 0.1%. Most people start with lower strengths because it’s such a powerful ingredient, your skin needs time getting use to it.
The history of this skin care company is quite fascinating. As you know, most pharmaceutical and cosmetics companies are just huge conglomerates that don’t specialize in anti-aging, but that’s not the case with this company.
Dr. Zein E. Obagi, a world-renowned dermatologist, founded the Obagi skin care in 1988. Although there were many cosmetics companies selling drugstore quality products, he had a different vision. He aimed to develop exclusive cutting-edge prescription formulations using only proven ingredients. And of course one of these is tretinoin cream.
The ingredient tretinoin (under the brand name Renova) was the first and only topical prescription product ever that the FDA has classified as being effective as treating signs of aging. Now that’s a pretty powerful statement right there. There are literally thousands and thousands of creams and serums out there, but only tretinoin was given the stamp of approval.
When Renova went generic, other manufacturers could then begin making their own versions of it. That is exactly what Dr. Obagi did, and in my opinion, he made it better. It uses the same proven active ingredient, but the cream (technically called the “delivery vehicle”) is a unique formulation. It helps to treat the dryness and irritation that occur the first few weeks and months you begin using this powerful substance.
This successful company, which has now been around more than 20 years, has developed an exciting line of other products, too. Not only do they work well, but they are surprisingly also very reasonably priced. In addition to the tretinoin cream, one of my favorites is the Cffectives Obagi, which is an extremely high potency serum of 10% vitamin C. And as you know, vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps protect against damage from free radicals, so I look at this product as a great way to help maintain your skin and prevent damage over time.
So you definitely want to take a look at this amazing doctor’s full line of products. As far as the Obagi Tretinoin cream goes… I definitely recommend checking it out!
