The Obagi Story

A Leader In Skin Health

Obagi was founded around the idea that your skin is more than a product of your past: it’s a window into your future. We craft products that unleash your skin’s full potential to brighten, even, revitalize and protect your greatest asset.


Backed by over 30 years of clinical experience, Obagi is the foundation for a more confident and fearless future. Obagi Medical is a global specialty pharmaceutical company founded by leading skin care experts in 1988. Obagi products are designed to help minimize the appearance of premature skin aging, skin damage, hyperpigmentation, acne, and sun damage and are primarily available through dermatologists, plastic surgeons, medical spas, and other skin care professionals.
