Zyporex – A Vitamin For Your Skin?

Some acne treatments promise to get rid of 2/3 of your blemishes in 30 days. One acne treatment system, using five products simultaneously, advertises that 98% of users get rid of 96% of blemishes in 30 days. A few scam products claim they will get rid of acne in at little as three days or even in 24 hours. But Zyporex promises to get rid of acne “instantly.”

Zyporex can get rid of acne immediately
Zyporex claims it can get rid of acne instantly.


  • Zyporex promises to get rid of acne “instantly.” If you buy two or more bottles you can also get a second product that gets rid of acne in 12 hours.
  • Zyporex does not contain any ingredients that can harm your skin. But it doesn’t contain any ingredients that can help your skin, either.
  • There are a number of skin washes that get better results, listed in this article.
  • In addition to skin washes, use a complete skin care treatment system with a one-year money-back guarantee, Exposed Skin Care.

How To Use Zyporex

All you have to do to use Zyporex is to squirt a little of the liquid on your skin and leave it there for 30 to 60 seconds, later rinsing it away. You use Zyporex when you bathe or shower, at least twice a day. The manufacturer says that a 12.2 oz/366 ml bottle of Zyporex should last three months—really a bargain at just $60 a bottle. And if you buy two or more bottles you can also get a free “12-hour” acne treatment to supplement your instant acne treatment.

What’s In Zyporex?

For Zyporex to deliver such potent healing it must surely contain some potent ingredients. But does it? The label on the Zyporex bottle reveals that it contains:

Aloe, oatmeal, glycerin, ascorbyl palmitate, retinol, hyalouronic acid, and preservatives.

Aloe really is a great treatment for cuts, scrapes, and burns. It stimulates the healing of broken skin1. Acne, however, is a condition that is inside pores. It does not crop up on broken skin.

You can’t argue with the assertion that oatmeal is natural. But did you ever see a baby who played with his or her oatmeal instantly develop beautiful skin. Zyporex contains oatmeal in place of the more commonly used polyethylene beads or corundum crystals. The reason oatmeal isn’t used in many acne scrubs is that it doesn’t work for acne. It can relieve dryness, itchiness2, and chafed skin (from tight undies), however.

Ascorbyl palmitate is a synthetic, chemical form of vitamin C that is well-absorbed by the skin3, provided you don’t rinse it off as soon as you put it on. Retinol is a form of vitamin that can be used by the skin, but it tends to break down quickly in any container that is not tightly sealed and it can’t be absorbed by the skin in just 30 to 60 seconds. Putting either of these vitamins in a skin wash is a waste of product.

Will Zyporex Clear Up Acne-Prone Skin Instantly?

There is no good reason to believe that Zyporex will clear up blemished skin instantly. There is not even any good reason to believe that Zyporex will clear up blemished skin slowly.

Washes are usually a very poor way to treat acne-prone skin. The main problem with a wash is that you remove the active ingredients from your skin almost as soon as you put them on. Even when dermatologists and aestheticians treat blemished skin with strong skin peels, they leave them on for 3 to 5 minutes before neutralizing them and rinsing them away.

Even if Zyporex contained some skin-restorative ingredients in useful amounts, which it doesn’t, there is no way they can do any good on your skin if they are washed away in just 30 to 60 seconds. And if you are inclined to stand around in your shower for half an hour just to give them a chance to work, don’t. There’s nothing in Zyporex that heals acne-blemished skin.

If Zyporex Doesn’t Work, What Does?

If you like the idea of rinsing acne away, there actually are a few products that help—a little. Here is a quick rundown of skin washes that are worth the money.

  • Alpha Hydrox Foaming Face Wash is good for getting rid of dirt and makeup on dry or normal or all but the oiliest skin. It won’t clear up any blemishes overnight but you may see results in about a month if you have been washing your face with soap. It also works on other parts of your body.
  • Olay Foaming Face Wash is a decent cleanser4, which is generally safe and effective for people who have rosacea or sensitive skin. It won’t make your face break out—which is the number one consideration in choosing cleansers for rosacea.
  • Aveeno Stress Relief Body Wash is the cleanser to use if you tend to get friction acne underneath tight clothes or after you work out. It’s a great body wash to preventing “all-over” acne that forms after skin is soaked with sweat.
  • Cetaphil RESTORADERM Skin Restoring Wash is the product to use when you’ve used so much of some other skin treatment that you have dry, itchy skin. It contains enough shea butter that you might have to remove the excess with a washcloth rather than just rinsing it off. The vitamin E in the product is a good choice for skin care in the wrong product. You’ll just rinse off the vitamin before it gets a chance to work. Still, if overdoing some other treatment has left you itchy and scratchy, RESTORADERM will gently and efficiently help bring your skin back to normal5.
  • Rodan and Fields Soothe Gentle Cream Wash is the product to use when irritant ingredients in some other skin care product have triggered an attack of rosacea on the nose and cheeks. It’s a very pricey product, at US $41 for a 2 fluid ounce/60 ml bottle. Users of this cream wash, however, note that it stops redness and itching right away and it’s not especially hard to remove. Some people will need to use a washcloth to remove excess cleanser from the skin.
  • Boots Sensitive Gentle Body Wash, which retails for just US $3.49 for a 6.7 fluid ounce/211 ml bottle, is a great way cleanse your skin without triggering breakouts of tiny red pimples. It won’t clear up existing acne, but it will help keep new blemishes from forming.
  • And for even better results, try a complete acne treatment system like Exposed Skin Care.
