It is a colour correcting and brightening skin cream for both the face and body. It is indicated for use in patients with hyperpigmentation caused by the ageing process and environmental damage.
Unlike other brightening products, ZO RETINOL SKIN BRIGHTENER is free of hydroquinone, a highly controversial beauty ingredient. Rather, this cream is comprised of high-potency retinol, ascorbic acid 2-glucoside, vitamins C and E, isoflavinoids, glucosamine, glutathione and other herbal extracts. Altogether, this unique formulation works to block and regulate melanin formation, while also providing antioxidant properties and offering protection from future damage.
The product is manufactured in California by ZO Skin Health, Inc. Spearheaded by Dr. Zein Obagi, a highly acclaimed skincare professional, ZO focuses on the dynamic balance between science and healthy skin.
ZO RETINOL SKIN BRIGHTENER is available in 3 different concentrations: 1.0 % retinol, 0.25 % retinol, and 0.5 % retinol. It is supplied in a 75mL pump bottle, which should be stored away from direct sunlight and between 15 and 30°C.
