Exclusive 12‐hour Time Release Antioxidant Complex Provides Optimal Skin Health Benefits

April 15, 2015 – Irvine, California – ZO Skin Health, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of Oclipse® Smart Tone SPF 50 (SPF), a revolutionary new broad-spectrum sunscreen with patented color-bursting beads that match any skin tone. Developed by legendary dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi, MD, Oclipse® Smart Tone offers a powerful dose of UVA and UVB all day sun protection, while also helping to shield the skin from cell damaging high energy visible (HEV) light. The multi-tasking formula addresses every need, from helping skin support its own natural repair process to helping tackle irritation and pigmentation, all while drenching the skin with conditioners to soften and soothe.

What’s especially unique about Oclipse® Smart Tone is that it contains micro-beads which burst when rubbed into skin to create customizable color on any skin tone, creating a perfect tint to be worn alone or as a make-up primer.

The technologically-advanced formula is super-charged with soothing extracts of Petasites Japonicus Root Extract and Beta Glucan to minimize irritants that can cause redness. The organic sunscreen is also infused with Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil to provide moisture and aid in lipid repair. To discourage the formation of new pigmentation and freckles, it’s fortified with a healthy dose of vitamin C.

“Smart Tone’s groundbreaking formula is both a novel advance in sunscreen and an ideal fit for our growing portfolio of highly differentiated medical technology products focused on skin disorders and skin health,” says James Headley, CEO and President, ZO Skin Health, Inc. “It’s one of the reasons why we are one of the fastest growing skincare companies in the world. We’re incredibly proud of this product – it is the next generation of sunscreen.”

“Using my many decades of experience as a dermatologist, scientist and pathologist, I have developed this sunscreen to protect the skin, restore the skin, and maintain skin health,” says Zein Obagi, M.D. “Now everyone can reap the benefits of this science.”
