WTH’s the Difference Between Our Product Lines?


Urban Skin Rx® products, that address the needs of diverse skin tone and hyperpigmentation, floating in water

If you’ve been rocking with Urban Skin Rx® for a while you’ve probably seen the words “Pro Strength™” in reference to our advanced product line that we offer. But you may not have understood what makes this collection unique while being a part of one big, glowing skincare family!

Since our formation, it has been our mission to recognize, represent and advocate for accessible clinical skincare for diverse skin tones with the greater goal to create a world in which we can all feel beautiful, confident and empowered by the skin we're in.

In order to fulfill that mission, one decision we made was to create a diverse product line that would help satisfy the skincare needs, goals and wallets (wink wink) of our glowgetters™!

We started with our coveted 3-in-1 cleansing bars and then developed a number of medspa-inspired products that we felt met the highest quality standards of clinical-level skincare solutions for diverse skin tone challenges.

This led to the formation of our more affordable products that you can find not only on UrbanSkinRx.com but also in multiple retailers. Exclusive to our website and select retailers, we also offer our advanced Pro Strength™ products, which are higher priced.

What the hell’s the difference? Let’s set things straight!

Pro results, pro glow

The Pro Strength™ collection provides advanced formulas for hyperpigmentation and resurfacing. These products contain higher percentages of many active ingredients, tend to come in larger sizes and tackle body skin concerns in addition to facial skin solutions.

Not to mention, we recently launched brand new packaging for our Pro Strength™ collection exclusively available at Ulta Beauty! We don’t like to brag, but goodness, this upgrade is the bee’s knees for a shelfie pic.

Looking for more affordable options that are still full of effective, clinical-strength formulas?

This collection is more affordable for those seeking a “glow on a budget.” Our core products help introduce shoppers to diverse clinical skincare solutions - at more places and more affordable prices - before deciding to take their skincare regimen and investment to the next level!

Additionally, our products are organized into three families to further guide our glowgetters™ toward products that are best suited for their skin type. Those categories are:

Even Tone Family - products in this category feature teal packaging and are formulated for people who primarily deal with uneven skin tone and who have normal skin types (can vary)

Clarify Family - products in this category feature white packaging and are formulated for people who primarily deal with breakout-prone and who have an oily skin type

Restore Family - products in this category features teal packaging and are formulated to restore and smooth for people who have dry/combination skin types

The proof is in the puddin’...or formula Want to see how a few of our Pro Strength™ and core products compare for yourself?
