The Details

Obagi recommends using both salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide as part of a complete and balanced acne treatment regimen to effectively treat acne-prone skin. This has been shown to be extremely effective, with benzoyl peroxide actively targeting bacteria and salicylic acid gently exfoliating.


Science & Innovation

With a 30-year legacy of science and innovation, Obagi has led transformative research that has met the needs of every skin tone and type.

That’s why at Obagi we create inclusive products that support the diversity we all bring to the table. It’s about developing scientifically backed, clinical-quality formulations to promote healthy, future-facing skin.


How to Use

  • Using warm water, apply a nickel-sized amount of cleanser to your entire face.
  • Thoroughly rinse and pat the skin dry.
  • Allow 10 to 15 minutes for your skin to completely dry before applying any additional products.
  • Because this product may dry out your skin, begin with one cleansing per day and gradually increase to two or three times per day if necessary or as directed by your doctor.
  • If excessive dryness or peeling occurs, reduce cleansing to once a day or every other day.
