Zo Skin Health Exfoliating Polish Review: Ingredients to be Cautious Of
We took a closer look at Zo Skin Health’s popular exfoliating polish and found a few things that might give you pause.
First off, there’s the magnesium oxide crystals that the brand claims slough off dead skin cells and leave skin soft and smooth. But we couldn’t find any scientific evidence to back up these claims. And, we’re not sure why they included sodium bicarbonate (aka baking soda) in the formula since there’s only one study on it and it showed it doesn’t help with psoriasis.
On the plus side, tea tree oil may be good for damaged skin due to its antimicrobial properties. However, the concentration isn’t listed on the website, which could be a problem since too high of a concentration could be harmful. And, glycerin is a great ingredient for hydration and skin barrier health.
One ingredient that raised some red flags for us is tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate. Zo Skin Health claims it helps brighten skin, but a study showed it’s not effective unless another stabilizing compound is included in the formula (which it isn’t). Plus, this product contains fragrance and the artificial dye Green 6, which can be absorbed through skin and may be harmful to your health.
In conclusion, this exfoliating polish may be effective for exfoliating due to some mildly abrasive ingredients, but there’s not much else to recommend it. With questionable ingredients like fragrance and artificial dye, we recommend being cautious.
Zo Skin Health Growth Factor Serum: Is it Worth the Hype?
Are you on the hunt for an anti-aging serum that actually delivers results? Zo Skin Health’s Growth Factor Serum is one of their bestsellers and claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The formula includes hydrolyzed sericin, a novel compound with documented anti-wrinkle effects and increased skin hydration, as well as dipeptide diaminobutyroyl benzylamide diacetate, which showed positive results in reducing wrinkles in a clinical trial.
Tocopherol is also included for its photoprotective benefits, and while the serum is free of artificial dye, it does contain fragrance. We think the serum is likely effective for anti-aging, but the fragrance might not be for everyone.

Beware of Uncited Claims: Zo Skin Health Clinical Proof Page
You might want to think twice before you trust the clinical proof page on Zo Skin Health’s website. While they list some impressive statistics about the efficacy of their products, the claims are not backed up by any cited sources. That’s a big red flag.
At Fit Me Solution, we believe in citing medical studies to support our claims. That’s why we only trust skincare products that are proven to be effective in clinical trials published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. This is the gold standard for product research and is the way to ensure that the claims made by skincare companies are credible.
So, what’s the deal with Zo Skin Health’s clinical proof page? It’s simple: either provide proof for the claims or remove them from the website. Until then, we recommend that you ignore these claims and do your research before you make any purchases.

Customer Reviews of Zo Skin Health
You can find it on Amazon and on their website, but we find Amazon to be a more reliable source for customer reviews.
At the time of writing this, the polish has 659 reviews on Amazon with an impressive 4.8 out of 5 star average rating. Plus, it’s got an “A” grade on Fakespot, which is a software that checks for fake reviews, so you know the reviews are legit. This is the highest-rated skincare product we’ve seen with an “A” grade on Fakespot.
One anonymous reviewer says the product has even helped with anti-aging: “My skin’s so much clearer, dark spots have faded, and my complexion is smoother. I highly recommend it!” But, one user named Eva says the product she received wasn’t the real deal: “The product was diluted and the box looked used. Not the same as what I usually get from my dermatologist.”
Pros and Cons of Zo Skin Health
- Packed with potent ingredients
- Claims to have anti-aging benefits
- People seem to like it (according to reviews)
- Smells fragrant (because of fragrance)

- Ain’t cheap
- Claims some clinical magic, but no proof to back it up.
Zo Skin Health Review: Final Verdict
We took a closer look at Zo Skin Health products and our verdict is mixed. On one hand, the ingredients in both products we checked out were effective. But on the other hand, they also had some questionable additives like fragrance and artificial dye that we wouldn’t recommend.
If you’re still set on giving Zo Skin Health a try, we think the Growth Factor Serum is a better pick than the Exfoliating Polish since it’s free of artificial dye.
But here’s the thing – Zo Skin Health makes big claims about their products’ clinical efficacy without providing any real evidence to back it up. That’s a big no-no for us and we urge the brand to either show us the full clinical studies or remove those claims from their website.
By the way, Zo Skin Health has a ton of glowing reviews on Amazon and based on Fakespot’s analysis, they seem legit.
