ZO Skin Health 0.25% RETINOL SKIN BRIGHTENER 50 mL / 1.7 Fl. Oz.

A retinol-based solution clinically proven to rapidly improve the appearance of uneven skin tone for a brighter, clearer and smoother complexion.

Please see below anticipated reactions and directions for use for this product. 


Redness, flakiness, dryness, burning, or stinging are all normal, anticipated reactions when starting retinol. With regular product use, skin will acclimate, revealing a smoother, more even-toned and youthful-looking complexion. Pair your retinol with a ZO® functional hydrator to minimize anticipated reactions. Consult a physician for customized retinol protocol. Like prescription retinoic acid, retinol will make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Wear SPF 30 or higher daily.
