Obagi Medical Products Introduces Hydrate

Stocks in this article: OMPI

Obagi Medical Products, Inc. (Nasdaq:OMPI), a leader in topical aesthetic and therapeutic skin-health systems, announces the launch of Obagi Hydrate. This new moisturizer is available as a standalone product, and also as part of the clinically proven Obagi Nu-Derm ® System, a line specially formulated to prevent the signs of aging at the cellular level to reveal transformed, healthy skin.

“Our customers and their patients have been asking for a moisturizer for years; we’re happy to be bringing to market a product that is clinically proven to do what it says it will do,” Al Hummel, Chief Executive Officer at Obagi, said. “Obagi Hydrate offers both instant and long-lasting hydration and is a great adjunct to any of our other Obagi Systems.”

While many moisturizers work by occlusion, a process that consists of forming a film on the skin to prevent dehydration, Obagi Hydrate is a unique formula that features innovative technology called Hydromanil. This primary ingredient in the technology captures water and assimilates it into the skin both immediately and lastingly due to an advanced multi-capillary process, creating a two-in-one response: reduced water loss on skin’s surface and the continuous release of active moisturizing and water-retaining compounds. This results in long-lasting hydration, supported by hyper-moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter, mango butter, avocado and glycerin, which further help combat dryness.

Clinical trials have also shown a 51-percent improvement in moisture loss after eight hours and a 92-percent improvement in the skin’s moisture retention within two hours 1. After extensive dermatological testing, Hydrate was shown to have no specific negative clinical reactions, proving it to be non-irritating, non-sensitizing, hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic.

OBAGI Nu-Derm Hydrate (MSRP $45, 1.7 oz) is available for purchase in dermatology, plastic surgery and other aesthetic physicians’ practices.
