Founded by Dr. Obagi in 2007, ZO Skin Health, Inc. was created to provide physicians and patients with the world’s most innovative and effective skin health solutions. As Medical director of ZO Skin Health, Dr. Obagi has created products with technologically advanced ingredients and even more effective formulations, designated into two categories: ZO® Skin Health and ZO® Medical. ZO® Skin Health products maintain the results of therapeutic treatments and provide effective daily skincare and protection from the environment, while ZO® Medical products have been optimized to treat a range of skin disorders and chronic conditions.
THE INVENTOR OF SKIN HEALTH SCIENCE
Dr. Obagi’s legacy began with his initial quest to explain skin health, which he defines as skin that is naturally smooth, strong, firm, even-toned, hydrated and free of disease. His definition soon caught on with respected colleagues in the fields of dermatology and plastic surgery. This assisted physicians to achieve better treatment results after determining more appropriate solutions to a patient’s concern, rather than simply focusing on a diagnosis. His pioneering definition also included a Skin Classification System, enabling physicians to determine the best treatments and predict patient response based on an individual’s ethnicity and skin type.
