THE PHILOSOPHY

of Zenz Organic Products

Zenz Organic Hair HK | About Zenz 1

The founder of Zenz Organic Products is the Danish eco-conscious hairdresser Anne-Sophie Skjødt Villumsen. She started the first green hair salon in Denmark back in 1999. Today, Zenz Organic Hairdressing has grown into a chain of six sustainable green hair salons in Copenhagen area, the capital of Denmark.

Already during her apprenticeship as a hairdresser, Anne-Sophie developed allergies towards traditional chemical hair products. In order to continue in the hairdressing business while helping others with the same problem, she began to develop healthier hair products. In 2010, she launched the ecolabelled and professional haircare range Zenz Organic Hair. Several product lines as organic oils, botanical henna hair colour and mineral make-up, have since been added to the Zenz Organic Products portfolio.

She has also won several prizes for both her products and hairdressing talent. She has been elected Hairdresser of the Year at the Danish Beauty Award 2015 and Green Hairdresser 2014 and Green Producer 2014 at the Scandinavian Green Cosmetics Award.

      The Swan label is Denmark’s official ecolabel. It was established by the Nordic Council of Ministers in 1989 and is used in all Nordic countries: Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland. Ecolabelling affects both consumption and production in a more eco-friendly way and the goal is to reduce the overall environmental impact so we get cleaner environment and greater health - for the benefit of people, the environment and the earth’s resources.

      Cosmetic products are in direct contact with the skin and hair and therefore the content of substances which can cause allergies or other harmful effects, is either prohibited or restricted to a minimum. Thus, there must - except from a very limited content of perfume - not be added allergens in Swan labelled cosmetic products. Products for babies and children must, however, be completely free of perfumes. Substances found on the EU’s list of possible endocrine disruptors, including parabens, must not be included. In addition to requirements for environment and health are also requirements which reduce the consumption of packaging and ensure product quality.

      ALLERGY CERTIFIED

      AllergyCertified is an international allergy label that strives to offer skin friendly products to consumers. You will never find perfume or allergenic preservatives such as MI (methylisothiazolinone) in AllergyCertified products.
