It has been a long project as I wanted to develop sunscreens containing a new generation of UV filters that provide efficacious sun protection and at the same time respect the environment. Additionally added sustainable active ingredients work in synergy to help protect and repair the skin, while providing superior antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and barrier-reinforcing properties.” - Dr. Marko Lens

Base: A fluid emulsion derived from completely natural renewable plant materials with excellent moisturising properties.
Shiso (Perilla frutescens): Shiso, also known as Japanese mint, is a plant rich in polyphenols (particularly rosmarinic acid) and triterpenoids (particularly ursolic acid). Zelens uses an extract obtained from shiso leaf which demonstrates excellent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-allergic properties. Shiso leaf has been used for years in Kampo medicine due to its strong detox properties and ability to prevent skin reactivity and soothe sensitive skin.
Botanical blend: A blend of liposome-encapsulated plants: Green tea (Camellia sinensis), Gotu kola (Centella asiatica), Acerola (Malpighia glabra), Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba), Pomegrante (Punica granatum) and Maritime pine (Pinus pinaster). Demonstrates antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and soothing properties.
Proline: An amino-acid used as a building block in the production of proteins. Increases collagen production, improves skin elasticity and promotes skin repair and regeneration.
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP): A major source of intracellular energy. Promotes natural skin repair to help reduce visible signs of ageing.
Vegetable protein: A plant-derived protein with moisturising and skin-conditioning properties. Enhances collagen production and promotes skin firmness and elasticity.
Acetyl tyrosine: An acetylated form of non-essential amino-acid L-Tyrosine. Shows skin-conditioning properties.
Lecitina: A vegetable-based phosphatidylcholine, a natural part of all cell membranes. Shows emollient, moisturising and smoothing properties.
Vitamin E Acetate (Tocopheryl Acetate): An acetic acid ester of Vitamin E. Acts as a strong antioxidant, enhances moisturisation and strengthens the skin barrier.
Glycerin: A vegetable-derived molecule naturally present in the skin. Acts an excellent humectant, a substance that attracts moisture from the environment and increases the amount of water in the surface layers of the skin.
