ZO® Skin Health by Dr. Zein Obagi

Dr. Zein Obagi, who coined the phrase “science of skin health,” is a board-certified dermatologist and world-renowned skincare expert. He defines skin health as skin that is “naturally smooth, strong, firm, even-toned, hydrated and free of disease.” This pioneering definition quickly caught on with experts in the fields of dermatology, plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine.

Dr. Obagi founded Zo Skin Health, Inc. to offer physicians and patients the world’s most groundbreaking and powerful skin health solutions. He’s created products with technologically advanced ingredients and extraordinarily effective formulations that fall into two categories: ZO® Skin Health and ZO® Medical. ZO® Skin Health products are designed to maintain the results of therapeutic treatments, address daily skincare needs and offer protection from the environment, while ZO® Medical products are optimized to treat a range of skin disorders and chronic conditions.
