Obagi’s SKINCLUSION is a global awareness initiative celebrating diversity and inclusion.

The SKINCLUSION initiative represents our commitment as leaders in the skin care space to elevate the global dialogue about diversity and inclusion, and spark actions that are more inclusive and reflective of all of our beautiful differences. We’re proud of Obagi’s 30-year legacy of providing effective, science-based skin care products for all skin tones and that we were the first professional skin care company to specifically design clinical research protocols to include all six Fitzpatrick skin types.

Everyone’s skin is beautiful & unique…

Each of us has specific skin care needs based on our:

    skin concerns
    skin type
…& we all have a place in the Fitzpatrick Skin Spectrum
Developed in 1975 by Harvard dermatologist Thomas B. Fitzpatrick, MD to categorize skin into six different types based on its response to the sun or ultraviolet light.
