A look at another top selling beauty product on Amazon.com…
Obagi Nu-Derm #5 Blender has spent the last 103 days in the top 100 products on Amazon.com. Why? Let’s look at the label.
Obagi Nu-Derm Ingredients
The effective (but controversial) skin lightening active
Cetyl Alcohol, PPG-2 Myristyl Ether Propionate
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Surfactant – I’m not sure why you’d use this in a leave in product when there are so many other less harsh alternatives
Sunscreen to help protect skin after bleaching
Alpha hydroxy acid.
Emollient to give skin a smooth feel
Vitamin E which doesn’t really do much in a skin lotion
A reducing agent that stabilizes hydroquinone by preventing it from oxidizing
Vitamin C. Could be working as an antioxidant to protect the hydroquinone
Natural extracts with soap-like characteristics
Boosts the preservative system
