ZO Skin Health: Product Lineup Explained

According to Dr. Zein Obagi, creator of the ZO Skin Health line of products, we’ll only see true results of skin care products when we stop treating the skin on the surface and instead focus our energy on skin care at a cellular level. This is where ZO Skin Health comes into play. ZO’s lineup of products are specially designed to bring cutting-edge products and therapeutic treatments directly to you.
ZO offers innovative skincare solutions that optimise skin health based on the latest advances in skin therapy technologies, unique delivery systems, bioengineered complexes and exclusive formulations.
With that being said, ZO Skin Health’s lineup of products is extensive, so it can be difficult to know where to start and what products are best for you. In this post, we’ll outline and explain the product lineup and help recommend products that will help you. The Courtyard Clinic are proud providers of ZO Skin Health solutions, so get in touch with us to get your products and personalised recommendations.
ZO’s range can be broken down into 7 main categories: Cleansers, Exfoliators, Toners, Retinols, Targeted Treatments, Eye Care, and Hydrators.
So let’s start with…


Cleansers are used to remove make-up, dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and other types of pollutants from the skin, helping to keep pores clear and prevent skin conditions such as acne. ZO’s cleansers are split into three different types:
Gentle Cleanser – For all skin types
Exfoliating Cleanser – For normal to oily and acne-prone skin
Hydrating Cleanser – For dry + sensitised skin
Cleansers are the first step in many skin care routines, so make sure you pick the right one for your skin type. Unsure what’s best for you? Give us a call at The Courtyard Clinic to discuss ZO Skin Health’s product range. 


Our skin naturally sheds dead skin cells to make room for new cells every 30 days or so. Exfoliating is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. ZO’s Exfoliating Polish is one of their best-selling products – and for good reason. The polish gently removes dead skin cells to instantly reveal smoother, softer + glowing skin, and was even named one of the “6 Best Face Scrubs to Exfoliate Your Way to Smooth Skin” – Good Housekeeping Institute Beauty Lab. ZO also offers a dual action scrub for more oily, acne & redness-prone skin.


Toners are used as an integral step in the ZO Skin Health routine to minimise surface oil and remove impurities. As with the Cleansers, ZO offers 3 types of Toners:
Complexion Renewal Pads – For all skin types
Oil control Pads Acne Treatment – For oily and acne-prone skin
Calming Toner – For dry + sensitised skin


Retinol is one of the best-known skin care ingredients on the market. Retinols are vitamin A derivatives primarily used to treat anti-aging concerns as well as acne. ZO has a wide range of Retinols focussing on Wrinkle & Texture repair, Night Repair and Skin Brighteners. The skin brighteners are available in a variety of retinol volumes – speak to an expert at The Courtyard Clinic to discover which option is best for you. 

Targeted Treatments

ZO describes their Targeted Treatments range as “Products to address specific skincare concerns including anti-aging, brightening, acne and redness”. This is ZO’s largest range of products, from their best-selling Daily Power Defense serum, to Acne Control and Self-Activating Vitamin C. Discovering an area you wish to work on is the best step toward pairing you with the right targeted treatments for you.

Eye Care

Strengthen delicate eye skin and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. ZO’s eye care line features 3 main products:
Growth Factor Eye Serum – Improves the appearance of expression lines, creasing & hollowness and re-invigorates the look of tired eyes
Eye Brightening Crème – Targets dark circles, reduces the appearance of puffiness & minimises fine lines around the eyes
Intense Eye Crème – Helps maintain the appearance of dark circles and fine lines


ZO Skin Health’s hydrators boost natural hydration and soothe skin with uniquely engineered Hydration + Calming products. They focus on 3 areas: Recovery, Renewal and Hydration. Their dedicated Hydrating Crème is for soothing skin post-procedure or for visibility irritated skin. The Renewal Crème is a lightweight formula for acne-prone skin to minimalist redness. Finally, the Recovery Crème contains retinol to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for dry and sensitive skin.
We hope to have simplified ZO Skin Healths huge lineup and made it easier for you to discover which of their products is best for you.
