What makes ZO® products special?

Vitamin A or retinol is the superhero of skin care and a core ingredient of the ZO skin health. It combats signs of ageing and disease at a cellular level, therefore restoring skin health from the inside out.

In addition, all the Zein Obagi products include cutting edge ingredients to stabilize, stimulate and protect your skin. These include hydrators, lipids, anti-irritants, anti-oxidants (vitamins B, C, E, co-enzyme-Q10 and plant stem cells) and DNA repair enzymes (ultrasomes and roxisomes).

Dr Zein Obagi is a world renowned dermatologist who has continuously advanced the science of skin health for more than 35 years. His treatments address a number of skin conditions including sun damage, pigmentation, acne and rosacea as well as fine lines and wrinkles, thus visibly turning back the signs of ageing. They do this by working at a cellular level to treat disease and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of healthy skin.

This enables everyone to experience continuously healthy skin regardless of ethnicity, gender, age, skin type or condition.

How is ZO® different from other brands?

At the heart of ZO Skin is its retinol formulation. Retinol, when used in higher concentrations, is clinically proven to reduce fine lines, sun damage and age spots. (every-day high street products are unable to do). This range maintains healthy skin, so helps to counteract the effects of ageing. Furthermore it provides environmental protection.

Plus, ZO products also combat a wide range of skin disorders and chronic conditions. So, freckles & pigmentation, dull and uneven tone, rosacea, redness and acne can all be treated effectively with ZO. These potent products do this at a cellular level to treat disease, and as a result they stimulate collagen and elastin production. Finally they also repair barrier function.

General Skin Health

Nearly three decades ago, Dr. Zein Obagi redefined skincare to include the concept of creating and maintaining healthy skin instead of only treating skin disease. This new philosophy led to the development of some of the most widely recognized skincare products and solutions recommended by physicians. Dr. Obagi, has redefined the concept of skin health to include comprehensive solutions that bridge the gap between therapeutics and maintaining truly healthy skin.

Firming Serum

ZO Firming Serum, Defying the mechanisms of skin ageing…

ZO Firming Serum is clinically proven to reduce skin laxity and improve facial contour (yes, really..!)

The process of skin ageing is complex. The most prominent intrinsic biological processes in sin ageing are alterations in DNA repair and stability, mitochondrial function and cellular metabolism.

Extrinsic factors such as UV radiation and free radical damage cause morphological alterations in the dermis, alter fibroblast activity, and ultimately lead to a thinner epidermis, loss of collagen and weakened skin repair.

Over time, this loss of the structural proteins collagen and elastin, impact the skin’s ability to maintain its shape and structural integrity.

Unable to withstand mechanical shocks and environemntal stresses, the epidermis slackens, it collapses and thus loses its shape.

The Solution?

Firming serum’s bioactive formula supports the anchoring fibrils that connect the dermis to the epidermis and maintain the structural integrity of the skin.

How does it do this?

Active ingredient number 1: Sodium DNA

Fibroblast cells (collagen producers) become inactive as we age. Therefore, we are unable to replenish our collagen and elastin. Sodium DNA works alongside the skin’s matrix formation process to support fibroblast activity, to produce collagen and elastin, in turn improving elasticity and firmness.

Active Ingredient number 2: ZCORE Inflammatory complex

Fibrillar degeneration weakens the dermal-epidermal junction. This results in inadequate nutrient replenishment between the dermis and the epidermis. ZCORE complex supports the anchoring fibrils, therefore skin integrity.

Targeted treatment of skin laxity and sagging skin cannot replace the basics of a healthy skin routine.

The basic steps being: cleanse, exfoliate, tone, broad spectrum UV and anti-oxidant protection.

ZO Firming serums lightweight formula is mild enough for all skin types and can be added into all anti-ageing skincare routines.

Clinically proven – 97% (44/45 participants) showed significant improvement by week 12, results measured by a cutometer.


Regardless of where in the world you live, it’s vital that you protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays all year round, if you want to prevent premature ageing and environmental damage.

Skin Health Sun Damage

With this in mind, SPF and sun protection products are an essential part of any skincare regime. Our Skin Health Sun Damage products have been expertly developed to offer optimum protection from the damaging effects of sun exposure and environmental pollutants.

We offer a range of solutions that actively protect against UVA/UVB sun damage in order to help reduce the visible signs of aging.

ZO Skin Health Sun Damage products include high performance, clinically proven ingredients, including fractioned melanin, beta-glucan, avobenzone, iron oxides and mica, and octocrylene. Our exclusive ZOX12 12-hour time-release antioxidant complex also provides protection from free radical damage, harmful IR-A rays, and premature ageing.

Overproduction of the skin pigment

Hyperpigmentation or Melasma is when an area of the skin darkens due to the overproduction of the skin pigment, melanin. This can manifest itself as freckles, sunspots, age spots, dark circles under the eyes, and melisma.

Although hyperpigmentation is a common and harmless condition, it can cause annoyance or psychological distress to some people with the condition. There are, however, ways to treat and prevent the symptoms and causes of hyperpigmentation.
