ZincO, Vita-Oil and Oatmeal Cleanser available again soon

Written by on February 20, 2009 in in the news, Rosacea Topicals with 115 Comments

Following is an announcement from Rosacea Care.


We have just received word that four products that have been important to many rosacea sufferers will be available again later this spring. By arrangement with the originator of these products, the Rosacea Care Company will be manufacturing and distributing ZincO, Tinted ZincO, Vita-Oil and Oatmeal Cleanser.

The formulas will be exactly the same as the originals, and they will be manufactured by the same laboratory. They will appear as part of the Rosacea Care catalogue with a slight increase in prices. These much loved products will be available on-line at rosaceacare.com.

I have been asked to tell you that the exact release dates have not yet been established. Please don’t contact Rosacea Care at this time. As soon as availability dates are known, they will be posted here and on their web site. Thanks to all of you who participated in our recent poll which provided valuable information and encouragement to those involved.

    I live in the South – very hot & lots of humidity during the summer months. Any recommendations for a cleanser that won’t exfoliate & yet not leave my skin too shiney? The rosacea has left me with large pours too. I never tried Linda Sy’s vita oil moisturizer & I’m thinking I don’t need more oil. I also never tried the tinted ZinCO – will that be too oily given my location & type of skin? Anyone else out there from the South? All comments appreciated.
    Much thanks.

  2. Sue says:

    yay! I live in Australia & will be extrememly pleased when the tinted Zinco is available again…

  3. Paulina says:

    My mother uses the Purified Skincare cleanser with good results. She has dry skin that is sensitive to just about everything.

    I use their Sun-Zinc15 sunscreen and like it. I don’t use their cleanser because it’s not strong enough for me.

  4. Linda says:

    Vita Oil is available. No word on Zinco.


  5. Rhonda says:

    Mike L,

    I have only used the Purified Skincare cleanser a few times, so far. I think it’s much less drying, and more gentle than Linda Sy’s Oatmeal cleanser. I hope that helps some. As I use it for a longer period of time, I can post my results, etc. I, too, tried the Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser and didn’t like it. I have used, and liked, Mary Kay’s Creamy Cleanser 2. I get it new on eBay (less money that way!).


  6. RosaceaCare has announced that “Tinted ZincO will once again be available and ready to ship throughout the world on Friday, July 17, 2009. On-line purchases can be made in advance of that date by visiting our website at rosaceacare.com. The price for the three-ounce tube is $ 38 US.”

  7. Rhonda says:

    Mike L,

    I have tried all of the cleansers you’re mentioning. I think the Linda Sy and Aveeno Ultra Calming were a little too drying for me. But, my skin tends to dry out easily. Someone with less dry skin will probably do well with both. As far as the Purified Skincare, my skin reacted, but I think I have issues with Decyl (Poly)Glucoside in cleansers. Right now, I’m using Mary Kay Creamy Cleanser 2 with some succcess. Still not a perfect cleanser, but it’s something my skin will tolerate, which has been a huge challenge for me. If my skin was oilier, I think I would use the Aveeno Ultra Calming. Hope this helps.


  8. Libby says:

    When will the non tinted ZincO be available? Any idea?

  9. Michelle says:

    Just a big HUGE THANK YOU to everyone involved in making tinted Zinco available again. My skin is literally SAVED. I ordered 2 tubes today. Bless you!!!!!!

  10. Steve B says:

    $38 plus $6 shipping for 3oz of Zinco!?!? And only a 20 SPF!?

    Is this stuff really that good??

  11. Libby says:

    Yes, I second Michelle’s thank you. Indeed, all the work that’s been put in is so appreciated. My ruddy face is smiling again! 🙂

  12. DT says:

    I’ve never tried the Tinted ZincO. Is this a product for someone who lives in the deep South where it’s HOT with a lot of humidity? I’d like to hear from someone who’s had great success with using it in the Houston, TX area. All replies would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  13. Libby says:

    I live in New Orleans. You can’t get much hotter or humid than here. And I wear both the tinted and untinted ZincO. It’s not oily or greasy. It definitely has a slight sheen to it, but it’s barely noticeable. I wear it everyday. And, i wear it over my moisturizer which is jojoba oil…yes, even in New Orleans!! Hope this helps.

  14. Rhonda says:

    So, the Vita Oil and Zinco have been released? I wish we all knew when to expect the cleanser’s release!!!

  15. Peter says:

    To Rosacea Care:

    Thanks for releasing the Vita-Oil and the Zinco Cream.

    We really would love to know the release date of the Oatmeal Cleanser, and that it’s soon .

    Thank you.

  16. Keith says:

    I just bought my Zinco from Rosaceacare. I can’t wait for it!

  17. Libby says:

    Are they going to make the untinted(white) ZincO??? Anyone?…Anyone?….Bueller?….Bueller????

    Please let me know. Thanks!

  18. DT says:

    I ordered & started using the tinted ZincO 2 weeks ago & it’s awesome. I used to use Linda Sy’s Sperior Cream. Did anyone use that Linda Sy product? If so, have you found an alternative that you’d recommend? Much Thanks.

  19. Comment via email from Janet.


    I have just run out of Linda’s Superior Night Cream too. I haven’t tried anything else but thought I would order the night cream from Rosacea product line. It would be great to hear if anyone has tried the Rosacea cream and if they liked it.”

  20. DT says:

    Any update on availability of Linda Sy’s Oatmeal Cleanser? I never received a response about Linda Sy’s Superior Night Cream. If anyone used the Night Cream & found a good alternative – Rosacea cream? If it’s working please let me know.

  21. DT says:

    Is anyone out there?????
    No responses, conversation, or advice since 10/2009. Is everyone going to another site for their support? No update on the Linda Sy Oatmeal Cleanser? No recommendations for the Night Cream? I really value the thoughts & comments on this site. Where is everybody? I miss you.

  22. The oatmeal cleanser will be the next product made available by RosaceaCare, but no date available yet.

    I suspect no one yet has a good recommendation for a night cream. What ones have you tried ?


  23. DT says:

    Thanks for the update Dave -I didn’t get an e-mail notice that you had responded 10/2009 or I would have ck’d this site sooner. I’m still using Linda Sy’s Superior night cream a little dab at a time – I only have 10% left. But, as the cooler weather moves into the South this won’t last me much longer. I’d be willing to try any type of moisturizer (day or night) if you can recommend anything. Much thanks.

  24. Well I’m not much of an expert on moisturizers but I currently use Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion – being a guy I don’t have much experience to draw on, sorry.

  25. DT says:

    I’ll try it & thank you so much for your kindness in responding. Will look FWD to the availability of the Oatmeal Cleanser.


  26. Fiona says:

  27. Hi Fiona,

    RosaceaCare have just let me know that their Oatmeal Cleanser is available to purchase online and will ship from December 14.

    They have confirmed that the formulation and lab are the same as when it was made for Linda Sy.

  28. Joan says:

    How will I know when and where to purchase the Vita-Oil and Tinted Zinco. I need some ASAP.

  29. Hi Joan, you can go to
    to order the tinted ZincO Cream and Vita-Oil.

  30. Joan says:

    Thank you very much. Going to order now!

  31. Joan says:

    Got my order rather quickly. Grateful, but did not get all of what I ordered and not the right products?????? New company to me. I don’t want to lose trust in them too quickly.

  32. Joan says:

    Got my new order straightened out. Will continue to purchase from them and will encouraged others as well. Pleased customer!

  33. Rhonda says:

    What size is the cleanser on rosaceacare? It looks like it’s only about 4 oz, based on the product picture. I’m a little disappointed that they are selling 1/2 the product (Linda Sy’s cleanser was 8 oz), for $5 more.

  34. jerry ott says:

    vita-oil-for delicate skin==very very important for rosacea skin and please start making the acne cover lotion –works better for coving nose then the zinc-o the zinc-o is also very important to us –thank you jerry

  35. RosaceaCare have let me know that the untinted zinco cream is now called Translucent Zinco and will be available from mid July. The name has changed but the formulation is the same as before.
