WHAT IS ZO® INTENSE EYE CRÈME?
It is an anti-ageing skin cream that is specifically designed for the eye area. This unique formula contains a variety of active components, including retinol, peptides, vitamin E, minerals, and herbal extracts. Together, these ingredients work to treat dry skin around the eyes, crow’s feet, dull skin, fine lines and wrinkles, puffy eyes, skin pigmentation, and dark circles.
ZO was created by ZO Skin Health, Inc., a Californian company. Steered by Dr. Zein Obagi, a celebrated dermatological professional, ZO works to strike a balance between science and healthy skin through its advanced skincare solutions.
Each jar of ZO contains 15 mL of the anti-ageing serum. To preserve its efficacy, it should be stored away from direct sunlight and between 15 and 30 C.
WHAT IS IT USED FOR?
ZO® INTENSE EYE CRÈME is used to repair and prevent signs of ageing around the eyes, including puffiness, dark circles, and crow’s feet. This eye cream is suitable for patients of all skin types.
It also helps to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, protect the skin from free radical damage, and reflect light through optical diffusers. Additionally, this formula provides continuous hydration to the eye area, evens the skin tone to improve the appearance of under eye circles, and decreases inflammation through a unique blend of botanical extracts.
HOW DOES THIS CREAM WORK?
The main component in ZO® INTENSE EYE CRÈME is retinol, which encourages epidermal renewal and stimulates collagen production in the eye area. This offers patients a more even skin tone, as well as less fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains Matrixyl 3000, a group of peptides that promote the production of collagen and elastin. With this, it improves the strength and elasticity of the skin, boosting its overall quality.
ZO® INTENSE EYE CRÈME is also made with an MDI complex, which mimics glycosaminoglycans and inhibits matrix metalloproteinase enzymes to prevent collagen loss. Additionally, its vitamin E content has antioxidant powers, fighting off free radical damage, while Phyllanthus emblica fruit extract and lavender soothe the skin and provide additional antioxidant protection.
This unique formulation also contains mica and titanium dioxide particles, which act as optical diffusers. With this, they scatter light around the eyes, reducing the appearance of dark circles and other imperfections.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD ZO® INTENSE EYE CRÈME BE USED?
ZO® INTENSE EYE CRÈME should be used after the skin has been thoroughly cleansed and dried. It should be applied twice a day—once in the morning and once in the evening—by dabbing very small dots of the cream along the orbital bone and under the eyes. The cream should be gently massaged into the skin until it is fully absorbed.
This product may be combined with other skincare products from the ZO Medical line.

This being said, certain individuals should not use this product, including those with known allergies or hypersensitivities to its ingredients.

WHAT IS THIS CREAM MADE OF?
ZO® INTENSE EYE CRÈME contains retinol, a derivative of vitamin A. In this cream, the compound is used to stimulate the growth of new skin cells, even out the skin tone, and encourage collagen production. Additionally, ZO® INTENSE EYE CRÈME contains Matrixyl 3000. These peptides work together to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, adding youth and elasticity back into the skin.
This under eye cream also contains an MDI complex, which prevents the loss of collagen through the mimicking of glycosaminoglycans and the inhibition of matrix metalloproteinase enzymes. With this, it reduces the appearance of dark circles.
This cream also contains vitamin E, which works to fight off damaging free radicals through its antioxidant properties. Additionally, it acts as an emollient, conditioning and smoothing the skin. Meanwhile, herbal extracts, including those of the Phyllanthus emblica fruit (Indian gooseberry) and lavender, work to soothe the skin and provide additional antioxidant protection.
This innovative skincare solution also contains optical diffuser micro-particles, including mica and titanium dioxide. When applied to the skin, these substances instantly reduce the appearance of lines and dark circles, giving the eyes a brightened, more youthful appearance. Typically, mica and titanium dioxide are used in makeup products to add pigment and shimmer.
