More than 20% get contact allergy

The Allergy Knowledge Center has shared results from a study showing that at least 20% of the general population has contact allergy. Perfume is one of the most frequent allergens. The study also shows that more people suffer from allergies today than they did 10 years ago.

Methylisothiazolinone (MI), one of the newest and most frequent allergenic substances, was not included in the study, therefore 20% is considered to be a minimum number.

Women and children are most affected, and the study reveals how important it is for the entire family to avoid allergens in all types of consumables - especially skin and hair products.

The Pure line from ZENZ Organic is free of perfume and essential oils and therefore suitable for pregnant women, children and perfume allergists. They are certified by The Nordic Swan Ecolabel and AllergyCertified, which is your guarantee of minimal risk of allergy. You get the optimal functionality as well as consideration for you and your family's health and the environment.

As a professional hairdresser, you are in contact with different types of products every day. Choose gentle and healthy products to care of yourself, your costumers, colleagues and employees.
