What is ZO Balatone?


ZO Balatone is a calming facial toner manufactured by ZO Skin Health, Inc. This unique toner contains sodium hyaluronate, panthenol, sodium PCA, alpha hydroxy acids, allantoin, and witch hazel, which work together to balance the skin’s pH levels, add hydration, and remove impurities.

Overall, ZO Balatone works to soothe and moisturise the skin, whilst also tightening pores, cleansing the skin, and preparing it for other cosmetic treatments. This calming  toner is suitable for patients with all skin types, although it is especially pertinent for use on sensitive and weak skin.

Focused on the dynamic balance between skin health and science, ZO Skin Health, Inc. works to develop products that create and maintain healthy skin for life. Guided by Dr. Zein Obagi, a world-renowned skincare expert, ZO is at the forefront of dermatological development.


What is it used for?


ZO Balatone is designed to invigorate and soothe weak, dry skin. Additionally, it works to balance the skin’s pH levels, prepping the skin for the penetration of dermatological treatments.

This toner’s exclusive combination of astringents, solvents, and exfoliants helps to thoroughly cleanse and clear the patient’s skin. Additionally, ZO Balatone’s unique blend of hydrators, moisturisers, and conditioners heal and soothe treated skin, providing a new level of comfort to toning technology.


How does this toner work?


This calming toner is ideal for patients whose skin has been weakened by aesthetic treatments. It contains a proprietary blend of ingredients, which work together to remove impurities from the skin, balance pH levels, and gently exfoliate dry, irritated, and sensitive skin.

ZO Balatone contains witch hazel, an herbal extract with powerful astringent properties. With this, it tightens pores and deeply cleanses the patient’s skin, while also working to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation. This gentle product also includes a unique blend of moisturisers, including panthenol, sodium hyaluronate, sodium PCA, and allantoin. Together, these ingredients are able to condition and moisturise the face, strengthening and soothing weakened, dry skin.

Additionally, it contains alpha hydroxy acids, which adjust the skin’s pH levels. These acids also improve the penetration of aesthetic treatments into the skin.


How often should ZO Balatone be used?


ZO Balatone should be used twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. It should be applied to the skin after the skin has been cleansed, and before any other skincare products are used.

To use this toner, patients should dispense the product onto a cotton pad after thoroughly cleansing their skin, and before applying any other skin care products. They should dispense some of the calming toner onto a cotton pad, and gently swipe it across the face and the neck area. Please advise that the eye area should be avoided.

Once the toner has been applied to the face, patients should let the solution dry on their skin without rinsing it off. After the solution has been fully absorbed, other treatments may be applied. It is recommended that patients use this toner in tandem with other ZO Medical products.


Is this product safe?


ZO Balatone has proven to be a safe and effective product for dry, weakened skin. However, certain patients should not use this product—most notably, those who are allergic to any of its ingredients. Additionally, patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding should take care when using the toner.

Please note that this toner is appropriate for external use only. During the application process, patients should avoid the eye area. If contact with the eyes occurs, the area must be rinsed thoroughly with water.


Side effects


While side effects are rare with the use of ZO Balatone, some minor side effects have been found to occur. However, these are usually very minor, and should resolve themselves within a few days of use.


Common side effects:


  • Sun sensitivity
  • Skin irritation


If skin irritation persists, patients should stop using this toner and seek medical attention immediately. Please note that the alpha hydroxy acids in ZO Balatone may cause sun sensitivity, so patients should limit excessive exposure to the sun while using this product.


Less common side effects:


  • Allergy
  • Hypersensitivity


If patients experience any allergic reactions to ZO Balatone, medical attention must be sought immediately.


What is it made of?


ZO Balatone is comprised of a unique blend of ingredients, all of which work together to balance pH levels, remove impurities, heal weakened skin, and gently exfoliate.

This gentle toner contains witch hazel water, a liquid that has been distilled from the bark, partially dormant twigs, and dried leaves of the Hamamelis virginiana plant. With its powerful astringent properties, this ingredient works to tighten the skin, reduce swelling, fight bacteria, and repair broken skin. This is due to its small but powerful compounds known as tannins, which have natural antioxidant properties.

Additionally, ZO Balatone includes a variety of humectants, including panthenol, sodium hyaluronate, sodium PCA, and allantoin. These powerful moisturising agents work to increase the smoothness of the skin, protect the skin, and soothe and hydrate the dermis.

The toner also contains glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid that works to penetrate the skin and balance its pH levels. As the smallest of all alpha hydroxy acids, this colourless and odourless molecule is highly water soluble, making it perfect for use in skincare products.
