The Science Behind Zelens Skincare…
Zelens products are formulated by Dr Marko Lens, a research scientist and an international authority on skin ageing and skin cancer.
Dr Lens is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. He received a Master of Science degree from Harvard University and a PhD degree from Oxford University in the field of skin cancer. Dr Lens has published many scientific articles in peer-reviewed medical journals and throughout his career has presented research results and lectures at many national and international meetings.
His extensive research into the pivotal role of antioxidants in protecting the skin from the deleterious effects of free radicals leading to skin damage and premature ageing, led him to create Zelens Skin Science – the range of advanced cosmeceuticals.
Zelens Skin Science provides a complete anti-ageing regime, offering optimum 24-hour treatment necessary to address individual skin needs to fight environmental hazards and premature skin ageing.
Zelens creams contain an exclusive blend of 20 natural active ingredients and soothing extracts. This novel formulation provides a complex combination of synergistic ingredients for routine daily skin treatment.
Zelens Skin Science uses patented liposystem complex (unique liposome delivery method) to encapsulate key ingredients in spherical vesicles which enhance the absorption of an active ingredient by the skin with a controllable rate of release of the encapsulated substance. This liposome delivery system provides maximum benefit of cosmeceuticals at the cellular level.
“In the course of my research, I discovered that if I combined most potent natural antioxidants into one cream, we could achieve a comprehensive formula for the optimal health of the skin. Regular daily use leads to remarkable results in protecting skin cells which help to reduce the signs of environmentally damaged skin and premature skin ageing.”
Our selective complex of ingredients, patented liposome delivery systems and novel technology are crucial elements in the Zelens view on protection, regeneration and repair of the skin.
Zelens Skin Science is a new scientific approach to natural beauty.
Comprehensive understanding of skin damage and ageing at the molecular and biochemical level was essential for the development of the Zelens cosmeceuticals.
Environmental factors such as ultraviolet light, pollution, cigarette smoke, alcohol and stress cause oxidative injury characterized by the formation of free radicals, which are highly reactive molecules. Free radicals may damage cell membranes, cellular structures and DNA. Accumulation of the oxidative damage generated by free radicals is a primary mechanism causing premature skin ageing.
Critical to slowing down premature skin ageing is the use of antioxidants to fight free radicals and neutralise skin damage caused by them.
Zelens innovative formulations contain a complex of fourteen different antioxidants which work synergistically to counteract oxidative injury to the skin and prevent premature skin ageing.
Dr. Lens comments:
“No one can escape the daily harmful effects of oxidative stress in the skin. This is why I have formulated the Zelens Skin Science cosmeceuticals to both protect from free radicals generated by environmental aggressors – and to repair oxidative cellular damage, leading to the rejuvenation of the skin”.
Developed using advanced skincare technology, Zelens formulations have been extensively tested for the safety and efficacy according to the current legislations and recommendations at international research institutes and laboratories in Australia, France, Italy and Germany. No animal testing has been conducted.
