Zone cosmeceutical products aren’t designed as comfort creams, but as active treatments against ageing. Formulated and tested by a panel of dermatologists, Zone targets the Mitochondria in the dermal layer of the skin. Mitochondria is involved in the production of ATP cell energy.
Co-enzyme Q10, if applied at the correct concentrations to penetrate into the Mitochondria, is seen as the ‘spark plug’. Thus it boosts the energy, enabling better quality skin cells to reach the surface at a faster rate. This slows down the overall ageing appearance of the skin significantly. The range combines CoQ10 with other network antioxidants, namely Vitamin A; B; C; and E.
Studies have shown that CoEnzyme Q10 and antioxidants help to repair and rejuvenate the skin. However, they’ll only show a significant improvement when used at certain concentrations. Zone products use medical science to incorporate all these findings into a treatment that gives the latest in skincare and repair for youthful skin.
Recommended for both men and women from the age of 20-plus years old, the products include a cleansing gel, a day cream, night cream and an eye gel. It’s indeed a top-notch, targeted South African range for African conditions at South African prices.

Rosacea is no joke. It usually causes a persistent redness in the central part of the face. And small blood vessels on the nose and cheeks often swell and become visible. Although the cause of rosacea isn’t known, it could be due to a combination of hereditary and environmental factors.
A number of factors can trigger flare-ups, including: hot drinks and spicy foods; red wine and other alcoholic beverages; temperature extremes; sunlight or wind; emotions; exercise; drugs that dilate blood vessels, including some blood pressure medications; and various cosmetic products.
