ZO® Skin Health Available in Canada

Skincare expert Dr. Obagi's anti-aging line available without a prescription

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2011) - World-renowned dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi of Beverly Hills, California, brings his newest skincare line, ZO® Skin Health, to Canada. Over twenty years ago, Dr. Obagi pioneered the concept of skin health. He conceived of and brought to market a line of medical skincare products – the original Obagi Nu-Derm® system – that transformed aging skin. After 10 years of research, Dr. Obagi perfected a non-prescription line, ZO® Skin Health, bridging the gap between medical products and daily skin care.

"I am thrilled to introduce ZO® Skin Health products to Canada. This milestone adds to our existing locations worldwide, spreading the word that healthy skin begins with ZO® products," says Dr. Zein Obagi. It is fact that skin cells go dormant as we reach the age of 30, indicated by lines, wrinkles, laxity, and hyperpigmentation. Studies show that the products made by cosmetic giants provide only temporary solutions and may even worsen the skin's condition long-term.

ZO® Skin Health uses potent formulas and high concentrations of active ingredients like retinol, Vitamin C, antioxidants, and lactic acid to awaken skin cells and produce collagen and elastin. Retinol is the only topical ingredient scientifically proven to provide anti-aging benefits. The Ossential® Radical Night Repair Plus product in the ZO® Skin Health line contains 1% retinol (5 times the industry average), the maximum amount that the skin can tolerate with minimal irritation. Obagi continues, "Instead of simply treating diseased and damaged skin, my circle of skin health philosophy focuses on creating and maintaining healthy skin continuously with a complete portfolio of skincare products and solutions."

Prices for each product vary, and a full one-month kit retails at $250 CDN. ZO® Skin Health can be purchased at medical spas, dermatologist offices, and cosmetic centres across Canada. A list of distributors can be found at www.zoskinhealth.ca.

Dr. Obagi will be present at the exclusive launch party of ZO® Skin Health in late September in Vancouver, BC.
