Common Questions and Answers

What will the Obagi-C Rx System do for my skin?

Prescription-strength 4% hydroquinone plus 10% L-ascorbic acid has proven aesthetic benefits:
  • Improves the appearance of brown spots
  • Restores balance, radiance, and clarity to lackluster skin
  • Supports skin rejuvenation from the inside out with Vitamin C
  • Maximizes Vitamin C absorption due to a low pH level (low pH also means greater Vitamin C stability and a longer shelf life than other leading Vitamin C products)

Why is Vitamin C important?

Studies have shown topical Vitamin C, in the most effective form (L-ascorbic acid), can help promote the repair of sun-damaged skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and brighten the skin.

How is the Obagi-C Rx System 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 equally. Clinical data show the 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
