What’s the Deal with Systems?
It seems that nowadays, there’s a “system” for everything – from weight loss to dog training. Many so-called systems are just fancy marketing tactics created to make you buy more product. How many of us have used bits and pieces of a “system”, only to throw it away or forget about it altogether a few months later?
Obagi® systems, on the other hand, are scientifically formulated to create skin care results that can make a real difference in the appearance of your skin. From start to finish, Obagi systems are created to cleanse, hydrate, tone, and refresh your skin – for all ages and skin types. Obagi has systems for a variety of skin care concerns, but you will need the guidance of a professional to help you determine which system will produce the best results for YOU and your unique skin specifically. That’s why we recommend that you talk to your local skin care physician before beginning any Obagi skin care regimen.
So, what’s your major skin concern? Take a look below…because there’s an Obagi for everyone!

Important Safety Information for Nu-Derm Clear, Blender, and Sunfader; and Obagi-C Rx C-Clarifying Serum and C-Therapy Night Cream
People with prior history of sensitivity or allergic reaction to this product or any of its ingredients should not use it. The safety of topical hydroquinone use during pregnancy or in children (12 years and under) has not been established.
Avoid contact with eyes, nose, mouth, or lips. In case of accidental contact, patient should rinse eyes, nose, mouth, or lips with water and contact physician.
Sunscreen use is an essential aspect of hydroquinone therapy because even minimal sunlight exposure sustains melanocytic activity.
Contains sodium metabisulfite, a sulfite that may cause allergic-type reactions including anaphylactic symptoms and life-threatening or less severe asthmatic episodes in certain susceptible people. The overall prevalence of sulfite sensitivity in the general population is unknown and probably low. Sulfite sensitivity is seen more frequently in asthmatic than in nonasthmatic people.
PRECAUTIONS (ALSO SEE WARNINGS):
Treatment should be limited to relatively small areas of the body at one time since some patients experience a transient skin reddening and a mild burning sensation, which does not preclude treatment.
Pregnancy Category C: Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with topical hydroquinone. It is also not known whether hydroquinone can cause fetal harm when used topically on a pregnant woman or affect reproductive capacity. It is not known to what degree, if any, topical hydroquinone is absorbed systemically. Topical hydroquinone should be used on pregnant women only when clearly indicated.
Nursing Mothers: It is not known whether topical hydroquinone is absorbed or excreted in human milk. Caution is advised when topical hydroquinone is used by a nursing mother.
Pediatric Usage: Safety and effectiveness in children below the age of 12 years have not been established.
Use of the product should be discontinued if hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients is noted.
