The two main ingredients in ZENZ Organic Products are aloe vera and avocado oil. These are some of nature’s finest ingredients, which are rich in vitamins and minerals and gently nourish and strengthen the hair and skin.ALOE VERA
We use only organic purified aloe vera.
Aloe vera gel contains 75 well-known and important vitamins and minerals for the body, including antioxidants, vitamin A (beta-carotene), B12, vitamin C and E, magnesium, manganese, zinc, copper, chromium, calcium, sodium, potassium and iron. Aloe vera leaves also consist of amino acids and proteins. In fact, the plant contains more than 200 active enzymes, 20 minerals, 12 vitamins, 18 amino acids and 75 nutrients. All in all, a combination that boosts your hair and skin as well as your overall health.
Aloe vera has very good skin and hair care properties and can therefore help to restore skin and hair, improve blood flow, maintain skin moisture and regulate acid balance. Aloe vera also has a cooling effect which soothes both redness and itching and relieves pain, which is especially good for the scalp.
Aloe vera gives skin and hair an extra moisture boost and helps to maintain a natural moisture level. When your hair containssufficient moisture, it becomes stronger and more supple. Keeping your skin hydrated also improves the skin’s elasticity, which is why our shampoo and conditioner can be used with great benefit on the body as well as the hair.
We always choose the best quality while respecting nature, and therefore we use only organic cold-pressed avocado oil.
Avocado oil is extracted from the meat of the avocado fruit and is therefore among the few vegetable oils not derived from seeds. The fruit is rich in antioxidants as well as beta-sitosterol, which has shown to reduce the risk of developing cancer and heart diseases. The oil has a high concentration of monounsaturated fats, essential fatty acids, potassium, A, B1, B2, vitamin D and E, which has excellent moisturising and nourishing properties.
The oil has regenerating properties and protects hair and skin from drying out and makes it stronger and more supple. Due to its high concentration of anti-inflammatory oleic acid, avocado oil can be used topically to relieve slight discomfort from many skin diseases, including but not limited to dandruff, chapped heels, keratosis pilaris (bumps on arms), insect bites and stings, sunburn, eczema and psoriasis. It can also be used as body oil. Has a healing effect on dry and cracked skin as well as a soothing and nourishing effect on scalp and dry hair tips.
We carefully select which ingredients to use in ZENZ Organic Products. In addition to aloe vera and avocado oil, we use the ingredients below, which are selected to provide maximum care for hair and skin. Also, the ingredients are tested to deliver the best possible function in that particular product. The natural and organic ingredients are a prerequisite for healthy and well-groomed hair.
Due to the high content of oleic acid (fatty acid), this oil is easily absorbed by the skin. The oil contains both vitamins A and E as well as several different variants of vitamin B – for example B17, which is believed to be a true anticancer. There are no other natural sources as rich in B17 as apricot.
Beeswax is a product produced by the bees. It has many properties which makes it very useful in hair wax. The hair becomes smooth, shiny and silky and the styling lasts much better as beeswax in hair wax provides a good and strong hold. Beeswax is very suitable for split ends and dry hair as it lays a protective film around the hair strand.
Benzoin is a resin obtained from the bark of more than 125 species of deciduous trees from the family Styracaceae. Excellent remedy against a number of skin diseases, including acne, psoriasis, eczema and rash. Has a lovely sweet woody scent.
Cedar oil is widely used in aromatherapy as well as natural perfume. It is said to be an aphrodisiac with an aroma that can be described as masculine but appeals to both men and women. Often used in meditation mixtures because it seems relaxing. Improves hair and scalp health.
One of the most expensive oils. Anti-inflammatory effect. Enhances cell renewal. Blue chamomile also has soothing and disinfecting effect.
Roman chamomile has a milder and more aromatic scent than other chamomiles. It is also the only chamomile that does not contain linalool and is therefore not allergenic. Chamomile is soothing and disinfecting. Used on hair, it gives a beautiful shine and lots of care. Used on skin, it inhibits pimples and soothes itching, eczema and psoriasis.
Made from the fatty acids in coconut oil and a good palm-free alternative to sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS). This soap substance is less aggressive and therefore cleans gentler and has not the same drying effect on hair as the harmful SLS sulphates.
Eucalyptus oil is invigorating, antiseptic, cooling and increases blood flow. The oil is used in shampoo and conditioner because it stimulates the hair follicle and degreases the hair while adding moisture. The oil has a cooling effect but actually it warms the body. Produced by water vapour distillation of leaves from eucalyptus globulus.
Natural ginger oil adds moisture to your scalp, gives shiny hair and helps remove dandruff. It also helps promote hair growth and stimulates hair follicles.
Glycerine is an emollient with the ability to bind water. Glycerine is a natural component of all oils and fats. Glycerine is separated from the fatty acids by a process called saponification, which is the way soap is made. This process has been used for the past 4000 years. Glycerine is a moisturising substance, that works by keeping the moisture in the skin as well as the scalp.
Lanolin is a so-called emollient, which is a substance that softens the skin. In addition, it is moisturising and hydrating. Lanolin has long been used by humans to protect, care and clean skin and wounds. It comes from sheep wool and is found in ZENZ styling wax and styling paste.
MEDITERRANEAN SEA SALT
Mediterranean Sea salt is rich in minerals, including potassium, iodine and magnesium, which helps to soothe any skin condition while helping to soothe and ease a troubled mind or any tension in the body. Magnesium in particular is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and helps relieve and cure inflammatory conditions such as eczema. Sea salt also has intense detoxifying properties and helps remove toxins from the body and skin when you give it time to work its magic.
Mint oil has antiseptic properties. It has a cleansing effect and cleanses the scalp from fat. Also, good to treat skin for impurities and acne. The antiseptic effect is important to acne as it combats the inflammation that creates pimples. The mint oil not only leaves the skin clean, but the fresh scent also gives a general sense of freshness in both skin and body. Ideal for an invigorating foot bath or tub and perfect when hair, skin and mind need to freshen up.
Produced by water vapour distillation of dried, fermented leaves from Pogostemon Cablin, one-meter tall plant with white flowers. Regenerative, astringent and anti-inflammatory effect. Suitable for oily and mature skin. Good effect against cellulitis, acne, fungal infections and dandruff. Often used in Chinese medicine.
Rhassoul is clay extracted from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. It is not a new type of clay, and excavations document that the clay has been extracted from the mountains and used for skin and hair care since the sixth century. This is a type of clay with a long history, which is mainly due to the good cleansing and nourishing properties.
Rhassoul clay has a unique composition of minerals, which is also why the clay is good and effective on skin and hair. But it also gives the clay a rather fun property, namely that it can be used as soap clay. Not just as clay but as a kind of natural soap made from clay under very special conditions in Morocco’s subsoil. Rhassoul clay contains lots of minerals.

Anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Relaxing effect and good for meditation. Softens the hair.
Shea butter comes from the nuts of the fruit from the Shea tree and is naturally rich in vitamins A and E. It also provides a mild UV protection (around SPF 6). The butter adds lots of essential fatty acids and nutrients that are good for the hair. Shea butter has been used in Africa and other countries for thousands of years to improve skin and hair. Shea butter is found in ZENZ styling wax and face creams.
Silk is one of the strongest materials we have today. It is produced by the silkworm and used in our styling products to make the hair stronger and replace the synthetic silicone. Silk is heat protective on the hair and is stronger and finer than a hair strand, so without weighing down the hair, it protects and strengthens it.
Wheat protein not only lies on the surface of the hair’s cuticle but is also able to penetrate the outer layer of the hair down to the cortex. Here it adds strength to the hair and improves elasticity. Wheat protein improves the hair condition, gives shine and more volume. The hair becomes stronger and softer and the scalp is nourished. ZENZ uses only gluten-free wheat protein.
