My skin care routine was abysmal until I was introduced to ZO Skin Health by my own aesthetics practitioner. After tweaking me with my usual neuromodulators she noticed some post summer holiday pigmentation just below my hairline. I always thought that unless you did an aggressive chemical peel and shredded like the geko’s I’d been sunning myself next to, there wasn’t much else that could help.
Well I was wrong, I’ve been using ZO Skin Health Skin Brightener serum to tackle these pesky pigments and within 2 weeks, vamoose, they disappeared. As I had such an impressive first experience with ZO Skin Health it was a no brainer to discuss other products that I could benefit from. It’s the first time I find myself purchasing on repeat and haven’t deviated from my current regime. So as a result my skin is happy and that means I’m happy.
What is ZO Skin Health?
ZO Skin Health is a skincare brand developed by Dr. Zein Obagi, a renowned dermatologist. The brand is known for its focus on providing medical-grade skincare products that aim to address various skin concerns and improve overall skin health. ZO Skin Health products are often recommended and sold through dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and other skincare professionals.
The ZO Skin Health product line includes a wide range of skincare products, such as cleansers, exfoliants, toners, serums, sunscreens, and more. These products are formulated with active ingredients like retinol, antioxidants, peptides, and growth factors, which are designed to target specific skin issues such as aging, acne, pigmentation, and texture irregularities.
“We’ve always believed that a true scientist has to spread knowledge around. For over 30 years, Dr. Obagi has been teaching science, spreading and sharing his knowledge with thousands of doctors all over the world. ZO Skin Health is the only company that has a philosopher, creator and developer of products that also doubles as the medical director of the company. Traveling the world to teach and train local doctors has been a major reason for ZO’s successes.” Samar Obagi, Dr Obagi’s wife.
One of the key principles behind ZO Skin Health is the concept of “skin health for life.” Dr. Zein Obagi’s approach involves promoting and maintaining skin health by stimulating the skin’s natural processes, improving its barrier function, and addressing various skin conditions at a cellular level.
It’s important to note that ZO Skin Health products are often recommended and used under the guidance of a skincare professional to ensure that they are appropriate for an individual’s specific skin type and concerns. The brand also emphasises the importance of sun protection as a fundamental part of any skincare regimen to prevent skin damage and premature aging.
Does ZO Skin Health test on animals?
ZO Skin Health have a policy of not testing their products on animals. They are committed to cruelty-free practices and do not conduct animal testing on their skincare products.
Can I use ZO Skin Health during pregnancy?
The use of skincare products during pregnancy are not advised, as some ingredients commonly found in skincare products may not be safe for use during pregnancy and whilst breast feeding. It’s essential to prioritise the health and safety of both the mother and the developing foetus.
Some skincare ingredients that are contraindications for pregnancy and breast feeding include:
- Retinoids: High doses of retinoids, such as retinol and tretinoin, are not recommended during pregnancy due to their potential to cause birth defects.
- Salicylic Acid: While salicylic acid is often considered safe in low concentrations, it’s best to use it sparingly during pregnancy.
- Hydroquinone: Hydroquinone is sometimes used to treat hyperpigmentation but is not recommended during pregnancy due to safety concerns.
- Certain Essential Oils: Some essential oils can be contraindicated during pregnancy, so be cautious if any ZO Skin Health products contain essential oils.
- Fragrances: Some individuals may be sensitive to fragrances during pregnancy, so consider using fragrance-free products if you have concerns.

Why can’t I find prices online and purchase without a consultation?

A consultation allows a skincare professional to assess your skin and recommend the most appropriate products for your specific needs.
