This gentle but effective non-prescription cream will reduce dark spots with 7% Arbutin whilst preserving and protecting the skin with selected anti-oxidants. The cream also contains an exfoliant to promote new and healthy cell production whilst clarifying and brightening the skin (contains AHAs*).
This non-irritating product can be used as a stand-alone cream but works best in combination with the Nu-Derm Skin Transformation System.
* AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) increase skin cell production and hydration within the epidermis.
Sunburn Alert: AHAs increase sunlight sensitivity and it is recommended to use sunscreen (SPF30 or above), wear protective clothing and limit sun exposure during product use and for one week following completion of your regimen. This applies to year-round sunlight.
OBAGI NU-DERM FX 5 BLEND non-prescription
Obagi Blend Fx contains 7% arbutin, a natural plant extract, which inhibits the action of an enzyme called tyrosinase that is involved in the production of melanin. This mechanism of action therefore reduces the production of melanin in the skin, keeping the skin lighter and looking fresher.
Also called ascorbic acid, vitamin C has strong antioxidant properties that help combat the visible signs of UV skin damage. In addition, the presence of vitamin C plays a vital role in the cream’s promotion of collagen production in the skin, which is responsible for the skin's firmness and elasticity.
Acting in a similar way to vitamin C, vitamin E is an extremely powerful antioxidant that works to keep your skin looking young, bright and healthy with its free-radical inhibiting properties. The presence of antioxidants in this facial cream protects your skin and reduces the visible signs of ageing, including fine lines and wrinkles.
