Zyporex is an all-natural facewash that gives natural products a bad name. It’s one of several suspicious acne treatments produced in Orem, Utah. The Zyporex, Acneticin, and Bruunhause acne treatment brands all appear to be sold by the same clan of scammers but are marketed as if they were unrelated. Supposed customer testimonials promise that “Zyporex is worth its weight in gold.” Well, it’s not. It’s not even worth the sale price of $29 per bottle.
How is Zyporex supposed to work?
This face wash contains dozens of gentle exfoliating agents, cleansers and antibacterial ingredients. Therefore, like typical acne washes, it “works” by washing away dead skin cells and dissolving the dirt, makeup, bacteria and oil that gets trapped in pores. However, the Zyporex ingredients list shows that the product isn’t powerful enough to fight moderate or severe acne.
What are the ingredients in Zyporex?
Zyporex contains about 30 natural ingredients plus a preservative and idebenone, which is an experimental drug added to help with skin renewal. While it’s true that ingredients like tea tree oil and clay can be powerful, they don’t have a chance to act in Zyporex. The concentrations are simply too low – especially considering that this a treatment to wash away after 30 to 60 seconds.
Here’s the full ingredient list from the Zyporex website:
Purified Water, Organic Aloe Vera, (20%), White Willow, Licorice Root, Calendula, Comfrey, Rosemary, Walnut Shell, MSM, Redmond Clay, Vegetable Glycerin, Oat Flour, Jojoba Oil, Tea, Xanthan, Avocado Oil, Carbomer, Tea Tree Oil, GermAll Plus preservative, essential oils of Lavender and Bergamot, Hyaluronic Acid. Grapefruit seed extract, Idebenone, DMAE, Green Tea Extract, Grape Seed Extract, Silk Peptides, Glucosamine HCL, Vitamin C, Camellia Oil, Rose Hip Seed Oil, Amaranth Oil, Rosemary Extract, and Vitamin A.
We’re not sure what “carbomer” is. It sounds like just half an ingredient name. It might be one of many typos from the Zyporex website.
How much does Zyporex cost?
One 12.2 oz. bottle costs $29.99 plus shipping. The company says that this is enough face wash for three or four months. They also offer a 90-day money-back guarantee. Don’t be fooled! The Zyporex strategy seems to be charging just enough to make a nice profit but not enough to get disappointed consumers worked up.
Is Zyporex a scam?
Zyporex seems to be close buddies with Bruunhause, a company that we gave a poor review, a company that has a BBB rating of F. This is not the acne solution for you!
