Nouveau coordinators Leslie and Laura recently spent a day in New York City learning about innovations in skin science at the ZO Skin Health Seminar. World-renowned dermatologist, Dr. Rachael Eckel presented a lecture created by the iconic Dr. Zein Obagi about the newest science and technology in restoring and maintaining skin health.

Dr. Obagi’s research and discoveries have raised the bar in skin care science. With his ZO lines, he offers a visionary philosophy for attaining and maintaining skin health, supported by innovative, cutting-edge products.

The NYC seminar was held at the beautiful W Hotel in Manhattan, and focused on products and treatment plans designed to treat cellular activity and function in the skin’s dermal layer, and improve the skin’s tolerance. Rather than focus on treating skin diseases, the ZO focus is to generate healthy skin for the lifetime of any individual.  Dr. Eckel likened the ZO program to “baking a cake”, with some essential ingredients (cleanser, scrub, toner, shield, sunscreen), optional layers (oil control, exfoliation), “fixes” for burns or discolorations (skin brighteners), and the icing (vitamin A and vitamin C).  With so many options, the ZO line can be finely-tuned to any skin care goal.

Dr. Eckel also unveiled ZO’s newest hydroquinone(HQ)-free skin brighteners – Brightenex, Brightamax, BrightAlive, and C-Bright. These products use retinol, vitamin C and other innovative plant based ingredients in place of HQ to brighten and resurface skin, and are ideal for those who prefer an HQ alternative, or who need to take a break from their HQ products.
