Zinzino SkinSerum is a 24-hour youth formula for the face and neck. It hydrates and smooths the skin and improves its elasticity and strength. This reduces fine lines and the appearance of wrinkles.
Zinzino SkinSerum is the first of its kind. It is designed to approach and modify aging systematically, and it represents the next evolutionary step in skin care.
Zinzino SkinSerum works by improving the extra-cellular matrix (ECM), the fine mesh of microfibers that supports the skin. The active ingredients in Zinzino skin serum protect, repair and re-build the matrix.
24-hour youth formula
Exposed skin (on hands and face) ages faster than non-exposed skin, because many of the signs of aging are driven by external factors. These include sun exposure, cigarette smoke, and environmental pollutants that produce skin-damaging free radicals.
There are internal factors too. When skin metabolism is optimal, damage is repaired and the matrix is maintained. Poor nutrition, however, accelerates matrix damage and slows matrix regeneration. This leads to increased destruction of matrix, and accelerates the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Skin care should address the causes of aging, as well as its visible signs. Zinzino SkinSerum does this by protecting, repairing and rebuilding the matrix.
It is a highly effective stand-alone product. But if your nutrition is less than perfect, it does even more when combined with BalanceOil and Xtend, which nourish the skin from within.
Sunlight ages skin by degrading the ECM. Zinzino SkinSerum contains 4 active ingredients, which block this key part of the aging process at 4 different stages.
- 1-3, 1-6 beta glucans
- tocopherols and tocotrienols
- olive polyphenols
Skin cells called fibroblasts repair the ECM by forming new collagen, elastin and other microfibers. Zinzino SkinSerum contains 2 active ingredients that enhance fibroblast activity in 2 complementary ways.
- copper heptapeptide
- 1-3, 1-6 beta glucans
By reducing ECM degradation and enhancing matrix repair, the quality of the ECM gradually improves. This provides the appearance of youthfulness.
Rebuilding the ECM hydrates and smooths the skin, increasing its elasticity and strength. This reduces fine lines and the appearance of wrinkles. Rebuilding takes time, so to provide more rapid results, the serum adds 2 fast-acting compounds for instant benefits.
- calendula (an anti-inflammatory agent)
- hyaluronic acid (a hydrating agent)
Human skin is composed of three major layers of tissue: the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. The extracellular matrix (ECM), the fine mesh of microfibers is composed of compounds such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. The ECM is present throughout both epidermis and dermis and provides tensile strength and elasticity to the skin. The ingredients in the Zinzino SkinSerum are targeted, as described in the text, towards the ECM in both layers.
Zinzino SkinSerum contains tracks of beta carotene, the natural color in many fruits and vegetables. Repeated use of the serum creates a subtle golden glow - the same healthful and attractive bloom associated with a healthy diet.
We also include other important ingredients in the SkinSerum and these are: Shea Butter, a nut based fat, and Helianthus annuus, a sunflower oil, both with good moisturizing properties. We also use Chondrus, a seaweed, that has both a moisturizing and an UV protecting effect.
Sepiolite, a mineral clay, is added for its antiseptic and skin healing property whereas Avena Sativa, an oat extract, helps in giving relief to an irritated skin. Finally we added Betaine to support the water balance in the cells and also have anti-inflammatory properties.
Zinzino SkinSerum contains no added fragrances. Its faint neutral odor comes from its natural active ingredients (such as the beta glucans). This does not interfere with other fragrances or perfumes applied. In addition the SkinSerum is paraben free.

Yes, the majority of the ingredients in the Zinzino SkinSerum are natural. There are a few exceptions like the ingredients polyvinyl alcohol, methyl methacrylate crosspolymer, dextran, copper heptapeptide-14 pantohenate and heptapeptide-15 palmitate. These are used because there are no natural, stable alternatives that provide the same beneficial effect for your skin. However, the amounts are very low.
Ingredients must only be declared according to the INCI standard. Using only INCI words ensures that any person seeking more information can find it in the European cosmetics database.
There is no point for a child to use an anti-aging serum. However if the child has problems with acne, damaged skin from burns or scars, the serum may be applied.
The Zinzino skin serum can be used around the eye area like an eye cream would be used.
No, none of the ingredients in the serum are tested on animals.
I WILL BE FOREVERGRATEFUL
During the last 10 years I have had severe skin problems. On several occasions I have gone to dermatologists, herbalists and homeopaths that have tried to help me without success. My skin condition affected my self-esteem a lot and when my skin problems were at the peak I never went out of the house without wearing make up. In October 2016 I decided to try something new - the Zinzino Skin Serum. I apply it sparingly on my face and neck every morning and evening. After 2 months of use the results turned out fantastic. The results still remain as good and I will forever be grateful and continue to use it.

I AM VERY HAPPY
The Zinzino Skin Serum really works for me! I started using the serum 6 weeks ago and it has already reduced fine lines and wrinkles and I experience an improvement of the overall quality of my skin. I am very happy about the result so far.
