What is Skinny Teatox?

Skinny Teatox claims their teas will “detox” and “cleanse” your body.

As of 2019, they boast that they are the “number one teatox in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Germany, Singapore, Netherlands, and France” and highlight that their products are “made with 100% natural ingredients that promote good health and weight loss.”

They also claim their teas can “burn calories, suppress appetite, and boost metabolism and energy levels.”

Sounds great, but is it all just marketing hot air and hype?

Is there really any evidence that you can “detox” yourself plus all these other benefits just by drinking a tea?  

Are there any potential health risks? Or is this just yet another golden unicorn to piss away your money?

In this review, I will put Skinny Teatox under the microscope and evaluate their marketing claims, break down the ingredients, and weigh out the potential risk for side effects.

What does “detox” actually mean?

Before we get into Skinny Teatox’s specific marketing claims, it’s important to look at the marketing juggernaut that is the word “detox.”

What is “detox” and why is it plastered all over different products these days?

Skinny Teatox toxins

Popularised by questionable internet personalities such as self-styled toxin-hunter Vani Hari (aka Food Babe), the term “detox” has been recklessly bandied around with little consideration for accuracy of use – and frankly, it’s terrifying consumers.

But if you buy into the hype, then you are fat, tired, and unhealthy because “dangerous toxins” have accumulated in your body.

Scary stuff. If only it were true.

Scott Gavura eloquently provides a real definition for detox in a recent article on Science-Based Medicine:

“Detox” is a legitimate medical term that has been co-opted to sell useless products and services. It is a fake treatment for a fake condition. Real detoxification isn’t ordered from a menu at a juice bar, or assembled from supplies in your pantry. Real detoxification is provided in hospitals under life-threatening circumstances — usually when there are dangerous levels of drugs, alcohol, or other poisons in the body. Drugs used for real detoxification are not ingredients in a smoothie.

Review of Skinny Teatox marketing claims

Skinny Teatox makes explicit claims on its website that the product can not only “detoxify” and “cleanse” you but will also cause you to “lose weight, burn calories, increase your energy levels, and keep your appetite in check.”

But are these claims truthful and can the product actually deliver?

Skinny Teatox claims

Claim 1: “Detoxify”

“Detox” is the primary marketing claim found across the Skinny Teatox website. But nowhere on the website did I find any mention of specifically WHICH “toxins” the tea actually “detoxifies.”

This is a critical piece of information. Are we talking about hexavalent chromium? Lead? Mercury? What’s the story?

How can you KNOW if the tea is actually working?  

If you don’t know specifically which toxins were talking about, how much or how many are in your body before you start drinking the tea, and you don’t have a measure after you’ve drunk the tea, then how do you know it’s “detoxifying” you?

Claim 2: “Cleanse”

Following on from “detox” above, Skinny Teatox claims their teas will “cleanse” you too. To me, this sounds like similar marketing jargon that goes hand in hand with “detox.”

Remember there is no legal or standardised definition for “detox” or “cleanse” in a marketing context, so they can be used any which way a company pleases.

And for all this “detox” talk out there, remember your body has its own built-in filters your, liver, lungs, spleen, and kidneys.

But wait, don’t my body’s filters get gunked up with “toxins” and need a good “cleansing?”  

Unless you’re eating a steady diet of heavy metals and other known pollutants, probably not.  Check out this SBS article on detoxing to read more.

It’s also important to note that many of the ingredients in Skinny Teatox teas are both laxatives and diuretics. 

If your body’s bowel and bladder movements are normal, then you are naturally “detoxing” and “cleansing” yourself without the need of teas.

Claim 3: “Lose weight”

I believe this claim is truthful, but it deviates from what consumers expectations might actually be. I don’t think there is any question that you will “lose weight” if you are drinking teas loaded with laxatives and diuretics.

However, for many people that want to “lose weight,” their expectation is that they would like to reduce body fat from those trouble spots like the hips, thighs, belly, and arms.

And one of the quickest methods to check for “weight loss” is the woefully misleading bathroom scale.

Unfortunately, the bathroom scale gives you absolutely no indication if you’re losing fat, muscle, water, or anything else for that matter.

Bottom line: Can Skinny Teatox cause you to “lose weight?”  Yes.  Mainly in the form of water and feces.

Can Skinny Teatox cause you to “lose fat?” Unlikely.

You might lose fat if you’re eating a healthier diet and exercising whilst drinking the teas, but the results would mostly be due to your change in lifestyle over the teas.

For more information on this, please read my articles on healthy body fat and permanent fat loss.

Claim 4: “Burn calories, boost metabolism, increase energy levels”

There are countless products on the market that claim they can help you “burn calories, boost metabolism, and increase energy levels.” 

Sounds great, but is it true? Yes, no, and kinda maybe based on your expectations.

Yes, it is true that Skinny Teatox products contain caffeine in the form of tea leaves and this may cause a small increase in how many calories you burn.

It might also make you feel more alert much like you would after drinking a regular cup of tea or coffee.

But now we have to look at these claims in a practical context rather than a technicality.

“Boost metabolism?”

Translated to plain English, a “boost” in metabolism means that a person’s calorie burn should increase and remain elevated after drinking the tea.

But exactly how many calories are we talking about? And how long is this elevation in metabolism? What evidence is this based on? Not much.

I performed a search of the medical journal databases and was unable to find a single study on Skinny Teatox that related to its effects on metabolism and calorie burning.

I did, however, find an article in the Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism which found that 12 healthy young male volunteers who consumed 200 mg of caffeine increased their metabolism by approximately 7% (or 13 calories in absolute terms).

Bottom line: “technically” yes, caffeine will bump up your metabolism, but unlikely in any noticeable or meaningful way that it will cause you to shed copious amounts of fat.

And since we do not know the actual amount of caffeine in Skinny Teatox, there is no way to know to what extent these findings apply, if at all.

Claim 5: “Suppress appetite”

This claim is true.

Skinny Teatox contains caffeine, along with ginseng, dandelion, liquorice, green tea, cinnamon, and cloves, all of which may exert an appetite suppressant effect in the body. This is desirable for people trying to lose weight.

Skinny Teatox ingredients list

Skinny Teatox claims their ingredients are “100% natural with no chemicals or preservatives.”

I was unable to find a complete ingredients list for each of the listed teas, but was able to scrape together this comprehensive list from their website and also by sending the company an email request for ingredients.

Tea leaves

Standard tea leaves contain caffeine which might make you feel more alert and suppress appetite.

Green tea

Green tea contains a small amount of caffeine which might give you a feeling of pep in your step and help suppress appetite.

Senna leaf 

Senna‘s active constituents are called sennosides which stimulate the bowel and causes a laxative effect.


It is not clear which type of ginseng is used in Skinny Teatox products, but the effects can vary from one species of ginseng to another.


Licorice may help people with irritable bowel syndrome by soothing inflamed tissue, helping to relax muscles, and exerting a mild laxative effect on the bowels.


Chrysanthemum tea has been shown to exert anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative effects in clinical trials.

Cinnamon bark

Cinnamon bark may be helpful for soothing irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhoea, and bloating. 

There is inconclusive evidence on its effects on appetite, with some research showing it can increase appetite and other reports showing the opposite.


Cloves are used for upset stomach and may relieve intestinal gas, nausea, and diarrhoea.


Rhubarb exerts a laxative effect for the relief of constipation but care must be taken, as a high enough dose can induce diarrhoea as a side effect.

Rhubarb may also be helpful for a number of other gastrointestinal disturbances like heart burn and stomach discomfort.


Ginger may exert a laxative effect on the body by stimulating the bowels and may be useful for upset stomach, gas, and diarrhoea. It may also promote fluid loss as a diuretic.

Ginger might also stimulate appetite which may counter other ingredients in the teas that decrease appetite.

Buckthorn bark

Buckthorn bark contains chemicals which have a laxative effect for constipation relief.

Dandelion leaves

Dandelion leaves may exert a diuretic (makes you pee) and laxative effect to increase bowel movements. It may also increase appetite.


Lemongrass may help improve digestive tract spasms and relieve stomach aches.

Burdock root

Burdock root has a diuretic effect on the body which will promote weight loss (not fat loss).

Peppermint leaves

Peppermint leaves may be helpful for digestive problems such as heartburn, nausea, and irritable bowel syndrome.

Depending on the dose, it could have a laxative effect on the body.


The fruit acids and pectin in rosehips may exert a mild diuretic and laxative effect.

Rosehips might also help settle your stomach from irritation.


Safflower may help improve blood lipid profiles and may possibly exert a laxative effect.


Cornflower may exert a diuretic and laxative effect to reduce water retention and relieve constipation, respectively.


Turmeric may be helpful for irritable bowel syndrome, stomach discomfort, and diarrhoea.

Natural lemon flavouring

I don’t have any other information from the company as to exactly what this means.

How Does Skinny Teatox Work?

According to the Skinny Teatox website, the morning tea is a “stimulant and gives you a steady and constant supply of energy throughout the day, increases your metabolism, and aids with appetite suppression.”

The evening tea purportedly “cleanses and detoxifies your body” and cleanses the colon to “flush out your digestive tract of toxins and unwanted excess which could be making it more difficult for you to lose weight.”

Given the number of diuretic and laxative ingredients, Skinny Teatox works by making you pee and poo a heck of a lot more than usual. This would explain the “weight loss” (notice I did not say fat loss).

If you define “detox” and “cleanse” as running to the toilet more frequently, then yes, maybe it’s “working” but it’s unlikely to be detoxifying you in any clinically meaningful definition of the word.

Any increase in metabolism or calorie burn is questionable and will likely be dose-dependent. 

You might burn an extra 15 calories but in practical terms it will have no significant effect on your body fat levels.

Skinny Teatox and other similar products on the market are unlikely to cause harm when used as directed (and for the short term). But there is always a potential for side effects.


First, senna leaves and a number of other ingredients in the tea exert a laxative effect on the body that could lead to diarrhoea and possibly dehydration, particularly if you are consuming a lot of the tea and leaving the bag in the water for longer than recommended.

Electrolyte imbalances and nutrient deficiencies

Second, the combined diuretic effect of many of the ingredients could further promote dehydration.

If you have diarrhoea, then it could further hasten dehydration and contribute to a dangerous electrolyte imbalance and nutrient deficiencies.

Low blood pressure

Third, if you have cardiovascular disease and are taking medications that promote fluid loss, then the tea could have a compounding effect which might further lower your blood pressure and make you susceptible to dizziness and fainting.

Reduction in birth control effectiveness

Fourth, by Skinny Teatox’s own admission, the teas “can potentially reduce the effectiveness of birth control if you take your pill within 4-5 hours of the laxative effect.”

Reduction in bowel movements

Fifth, the tea should be used for the short term. Long term use could result in your body habituating to the laxative which may lead to a reduction in bowel motility (leading to intestinal paralysis, lazy gut, and IBS) and make you dependent on the tea for normal bowel movements.

If you’re having problems with your bowel movements after using the tea, you should consult your doctor for further evaluation.

Weight loss abuse

Sixth, because the teas promote “weight loss” through increased urine and feces loss, consumers obsessed with quick-fix weight loss products may be at higher risk for abuse.

If you’re the parent of a teen with body image issues, you should pay particular attention to their use of the products.

The fine print: Skinny Teatox “results not typical”

Skinny Teatox is quick put the brakes on too much enthusiasm. On their website they state:

Testimonials, reviews and images found at and/or from Skinny Teatox are unverified results that have been forwarded to us by users of our products; may not reflect the typical user experience; may not apply to the average person; and are not intended to represent or guarantee that anyone will achieve the same or similar results. You should always perform your own research and not take such results at face value. It is possible that even with perfect use of our products, you will not achieve the results described or shown. They are meant to be a showcase of the best results our products have produced, and should not be taken as the results a typical user will get.

In my opinion, if “results are not typical” then it’s misleading to only highlight the small proportion of anomalous testimonials that had great “results.”

It’s these types of disclaimers that make me think what we really need is a “detox” from advertising bullish*t. International laws should “cleanse” marketing claims to better protect consumers from being misled by myth, innuendo, and half-truths.

Does Skinny Teatox work? The verdict

Whether or not Skinny Teatox actually “works” depends on your individual definition of the words “detox” and “cleanse.” 

If you consider urine and feces to be “toxins” then, sure, diuretics and laxatives will do the trick. 

But it’s unlikely to fix that little mercury poisoning thing you’ve been dealing with.

You’re going to get real cozy with your toilet while using the product and you probably will “lose weight.”  

But if your expectation is that you’re going to lose stored body fat, then you’re probably going to be disappointed.

It won’t turn your metabolism into a raging inferno, nor will it send your energy levels spiking through the roof.

You’re free to spend your money on whatever you please, but remember that no teatox on the market is a substitute for a healthy lifestyle that includes eating a nutrient-rich diet, doing regular physical activity, getting adequate sleep, and reducing stress.

In closing, my final recommendation actually comes directly from Skinny Teatox website:

Skinny Teatox should not replace a healthy diet or exercise! Use your head, and continue to eat healthy foods like fruits and vegetables, eat the recommended amount of calories per day, and be happy with who you are.

I couldn’t agree more.

SkinnyFit Detox Tea Review: Is It Worth It? Our Dietitian Explains


  • 90-day money-back guarantee
  • May increase energy and support weight loss
  • Evidence to support the benefits of most ingredients


  • Expensive
  • Lacks independent third-party testing for safety and purity
  • Exact ingredient amounts not provided

What Is SkinnyFit Detox Tea?

SkinnyFit Detox Tea is a blend of several teas with other plant-based and herbal “superfood” ingredients.

The tea makes a lot of claims but is primarily designed to support weight loss for women.

SkinnyFit sells two versions of detox tea:

  • SkinnyFit Detox Tea is a daytime blend that contains caffeine and claims to enhance energy.
  • Zzztox Nighttime Detox Blend is a caffeine-free tea designed to promote relaxation and sleep.

In this review, I’m taking a closer look at the ingredients in the daytime tea and if the claims have any basis.

The tea has been featured heavily in women’s magazines and social media and claims to be an all-natural, laxative free tool to help women of all ages boost metabolism, burn fat, shed water weight, relieve gas and bloating, release toxins, reduce inflammation, improve skin health, reduce stress, and improve immunity.

SkinnyFit considers itself a health and wellness brand, but most of its products are marketed with weight loss, cleansing, and beauty in mind.

They claim they want to help all women feel confident and empowered, but it seems like a thinly veiled attempt to promote dieting.

You’ll see young, attractive women posing with SkinnyFit products and raving about how they feel lighter, have a flatter belly, and met their weight goal.

You have to scroll to the bottom of the SkinnyFit website to find the small print: “Exercise and proper diet are necessary to achieve and maintain weight loss.”

Evaluation of Ingredients

The website description for SkinnyFit Detox Tea says it contains “13 metabolism-boosting superfoods” and “28 essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients.”

The exact amounts of each ingredient in the tea blend are not provided, but here’s what the research says about these ingredients:


Oolong is a fermented tea that contains vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols, which are antioxidants that can protect against inflammation, aging, and disease.

Tea polyphenols have been linked to weight loss, but the exact relationship isn’t understood.

Oolong also contains caffeine, which can make you feel energized. Caffeine also has diuretic properties and can increase metabolism, so your body burns more calories.


There is some evidence hibiscus tea supports healthy blood pressure, “bad” cholesterol, and blood sugar levels.

In animal and human studies, hibiscus supplementation has been linked to weight loss.

Nettle Leaf

Nettle leaf is rich in nutrients and phytochemicals that ease inflammation. Some compounds in nettle are effective at reducing joint pain and have antibacterial properties.

Dandelion Leaf

Dandelion may help excrete excess water weight since it acts as a diuretic.

Like all plants, it contains compounds that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects that may support immunity and slow signs of aging.

In this animal study, dandelion intake inhibited the breakdown of dietary fat similar to the weight loss medication Orlistat, but without digestive upset.


Apples are rich in polyphenols which have been found to protect against many chronic diseases in humans.

Studies have also linked regular apple consumption with increased weight loss. The polyphenol compounds in apples seem to regulate genes that control fat storage and may help prevent weight gain.

SkinnyFit doesn’t list what part of the apple or how much this tea contains, but any benefit won’t compare to eating whole apples.


Goji berries, or wolfberries, are considered a superfood thanks to their high antioxidant content.

In both human and animal studies, compounds found in goji have displayed anti-aging effects and enhanced immunity.


Lemongrass may help decrease feelings of bloating and puffiness since it’s been found to have diuretic properties.

Citral, one of the main compounds in lemongrass oil, has several reported benefits, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial activity, which can support the immune system.

Yerba Mate

Yerba Mate is an herbal tea that’s popular in South America. It contains less caffeine than a cup of coffee, so it may help you feel energized without jitters.

Research has found regular consumption of yerba mate in humans can promote healthy cholesterol levels and support weight loss.

In one study, obese participants who took supplemented with yerba mate capsules lost more body fat than the placebo group.

Milk Thistle

Milk Thistle is another plant ingredient that has well-documented liver health benefits.

The exact mechanism isn’t understood, but research has found a link between milk thistle supplementation and improved liver function in patients with liver disease.

Studies have found it has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may play a role in promoting healthy blood triglycerides, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels.


Guarana is a fruit that comes from a South American Amazonian plant. It contains antioxidants and a significant amount of caffeine, which can energize and help you feel more alert.

It’s believed guarana may support fat burning and weight loss. In test tube studies, guarana appears to have the ability to regulate genes responsible for creating fat cells.


Ginseng comes from the root of a plant and is popular in Asian culture and traditional Chinese medicine. There are different varieties, depending on which region of the world it is grown in.

Ginseng has many reported health benefits, including blood sugar control and antimicrobial activity that may aid immunity.

Some studies have found a link between ginseng supplementation and improved energy, but more research is needed.

Matcha Green Tea

Green tea is well-studied for its role in promoting health. It’s loaded with powerful anti-inflammatory antioxidants, the most notable being a compound called EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate).

Regular consumption of green tea may help protect against inflammatory diseases like obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

The antioxidant compounds in green tea have the ability to boost collagen and elastin in the skin, which may keep wrinkles and photoaging (aka sun damage) at bay.

Matcha contains some caffeine that can boost energy and mental focus, but unlike coffee, it’s not enough to leave people shaking and jittery.

Green tea also contains L-theanine, an amino acid that helps your mind and body destress and further balances any side effects of caffeine.


Stevia is a non-nutritive sweetener made from a South American plant species. It’s sweeter than sugar but contains no calories.

There is insufficient evidence on the long-term effects or benefits of stevia consumption on weight or gut health.

Verdict on Claimed Benefits

Below is our summary of the available evidence for the claimed benefits of SkinnyFit Detox Tea based on the available research:

  • EnergizesStrong Evidence
  • Boosts metabolismModerate Evidence
  • Decreases bloatingModerate Evidence
  • Improves digestionLimited Evidence
  • Reduces stress and inflammationModerate Evidence
  • Boosts immunityModerate Evidence
  • Releases toxinsNo Evidence

Side Effects, Safety, and Dosage

The recommended dosage for SkinnyFit Detox Tea is one or two cups of tea per day. Each cup of tea is prepared by steeping one tea bag in 8-ounces of hot water.

Be aware that increasing your fluid and caffeine intake by an extra cup or two of tea a day will likely result in increased trips to the bathroom.

If you drink this tea plus regularly drink other caffeinated beverages, like soda, coffee, and other teas, you may experience side effects from excessive stimulant intake.

Besides increased urination, consuming too much caffeine can result in jitters, anxiety, fidgeting, insomnia, digestive upset, and changes to your heart rate. 

Although more rare, serious side effects from too much caffeine can occur and include hallucinations, seizures, and cardiac arrhythmias. 

There’s no official daily recommendation for caffeine, but less than 400 milligrams of caffeine per day is generally considered a safe amount for most people.

The ingredients seem safe for most healthy people to consume once a day without any serious risk of adverse side effects.

Still, it would be best if you spoke with your primary healthcare provider before trying this supplement.

It’s advised that pregnant and breastfeeding women should limit caffeine intake, so those individuals may want to avoid this product.

I found a blurb on the SkinnyFit website that claims internal quality testing is done on all products to ensure they’re safe and pure, but what are they testing and how often?

The product lacks any obvious independent third-party testing to back up purity and safety claims.

Cost of SkinnyFit Detox Tea

Each package of SkinnyFit Detox Tea contains 28 tea bags and costs $69.95, which equates to $2.50 per cup of tea.

You can also enroll in a monthly subscription plan that saves you 15%, bringing each bag of tea down to $55.96 or $2.00 per serving.

A couple of dollars for a cup of tea might seem reasonable, but it adds up.

Commit to using this tea daily for a year, and you’ll need 13 boxes of tea which will cost you over $700 at the discounted rate.

Personally, I don’t spend that much on all my supplements combined, so I can’t imagine paying that for tea.

SkinnyFit backs all their products with a 90-day money-back guarantee, so if you don’t like the tea, you can get a full refund.

Full details plus contact information are easily found on the brand’s website.

Comparison to Alternatives

There’s no shortage of teas designed for detoxing and weight loss being promoted by female influencers across social media.

Most competitors feature words like “skinny,” “fit,” or “detox” in the name, as well, making it easy to confuse one product with another.

These teas are all riffs on the same basic premise: a variety of tea leaves, usually green, oolong, and yerba mate, blended with herbs and superfoods to boost energy and metabolism.

Many of these teas also contain senna root, which stimulates the bowels and acts as a laxative.

SkinnyFit Detox Tea doesn’t contain any laxatives, which is a plus, but it’s significantly more expensive than other similar brands.

You can also find detox tea blends from several well-known brands in most grocery retailers.

Although the ingredients vary, these store brands cost significantly less than SkinnyFit tea.

The Bottom Line

SkinnyFit Detox Tea contains several herbal ingredients that have significant antioxidant content to help fight inflammation and support immunity.

The caffeine-containing ingredients will provide some energy.

Any weight loss associated with this tea is likely due to water weight, which may be shed from increasing total fluids or diuretic activity of caffeine, dandelion leaf, and lemongrass.

I think this tea is overpriced, and I’m not too fond of the brand’s focus on weight loss and detoxing, nor the diet culture implications in the product name.

However, the ingredients generally seem safe and may help support some women in their weight loss efforts.

A Word from Our RD

My job as a registered dietitian is to remind people that the only path to lasting weight loss is regular physical activity, nutritious food choices, and portion control.

You simply can’t rely on this tea or any dietary supplement for long-term weight loss.

Drinking this tea without exercising or paying attention to what you’re eating isn’t going to help you lose weight or improve your health or energy levels.

SkinnyFit Detox Tea may be a good alternative to coffee since it contains less caffeine cup for cup. I wouldn’t recommend it on that basis alone, though.

You can get the same energy boost from regular tea without the bloated price tag.

Skinnyfit Detox Ingredients

While Skinny Fit offers a complete line of supplements, we focused on the Skinny Fit Energizing Tea Blend.

Green Tea

Green tea is nutrient-dense and contains vitamins and minerals. It also contains natural caffeine, which may help improve your metabolism. Additionally, it consists of the compound epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is considered the reason you get weight loss.
