What is ZO Body Emulsion?

ZO Body Emulsion is a multi-action body treatment formulated to improve smoothness, appearance and overall skin quality. It uses a buffet of amazing ingredients to provide the ultimate smoothing lotion, including retinol and antioxidants like vitamin C to help stimulate epidermal renewal and collagen production. It also offers skin protection from everyday environmental damage.

This superior body lotion is so effective it has offered our clients some incredible results, and in 2023 it was included in the 15 best body scrubs for smoother skin in Reader’s Digest.

Who would benefit most from ZO Body Emulsion?

The specialised enzymes and hydrators within this formulation work to immediately soften and resurface rough, dry skin and even out skin tone, so if these are the results you are looking for, ZO Body Emulsion could be for you. 

It will provide the strongest results for anyone looking for anti-ageing products and keen to reduce the appearance of dark spots or an uneven skin tone on the body, not just the face. 

We always recommend booking a free video skincare consultation with one of our Skin Experts to discuss your skin history and goals, so they can assist in finding the products likely to work best for you. We are proud to focus only on your skin needs and empower your skincare choices, so you will only be offered products we genuinely believe to be best for your skin. 




Who would not benefit from ZO Body Emulsion?

There are few people who would not benefit from trying ZO Body Emulsion, as most will experience smoother skin.

Since this product is primarily formulated for those with age-related skin issues like uneven skin tone, rough skin and dry skin, if anti-ageing skincare is not a concern of yours right now, other products may be more effective for you — your Skin Expert can give you advice on this and point you in the direction of the products and ingredients you need. Some products you may be recommended instead include Obagi’s Kèraphine® Body Smoothing Lotion to smooth bumpy skin and keratosis pilaris, or ZO Body Smoothing Crème for tightening and toning skin.

Also, since ZO Body Emulsion contains retinol, it may not be suitable for those with particularly sensitive skin. Retinol can cause side effects such as irritation, redness, dryness, and peeling, so it’s always best to let your Skin Expert know if you suffer from sensitive skin. 


How do you use ZO Body Emulsion?

ZO Body Emulsion is recommended for use daily, but do discuss your specific skin concerns or needs with your Skin Expert so they can advise you on how often to use this product for best results. 

First, you will want to cleanse the skin thoroughly and pat dry. Next, apply a generous amount of ZO Body Emulsion all over your body. Rub this in using circular motions to spread it evenly. It is best to allow the product to absorb into the skin for a few minutes before applying any other skincare products or clothing.

What do the reviews say?

Our Skin Experts have had great feedback from clients using ZO Body Emulsion, and the reviews on our website and ZO Skin Health’s website are overwhelmingly positive. One of the reviews you can view on our website reads: 

“Amazing smooth results. I noticed a difference with just one application. Woke up to smooth skin and gets better after each use… I’m using it to even out my skin tone on my body so hoping to see results in the next few months but already my skin is looking radiant and definitely worth the money.”
