Shiso oil: The oil extracted from the seeds of Shiso is the richest plant source of omega-3 fatty acids. It replenishes moisture, reinforces the skin’s natural barrier and shows strong restructuring, repairing, healing and soothing properties.
Shiso (Perilla frutescens): Shiso, also known as Japanese mint, is a plant rich in polyphenols (particularly rosmarinic acid) and triterpenoids (particularly ursolic acid). We use 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 strong detox properties, and its ability to soothe sensitive skin and prevent skin reactivity.
Olive oil: Extracted from the olive fruit is rich in omega-9 (oleic acid). Shows moisturising, nourishing, softening and healing properties. Due to a high amount of natural phenols, it also acts as a good antioxidant.
Yeast: A filtrate of the lysate (the solution consisting of the material released from cell lysis; cellular disruption) obtained by the fermentation of yeast (Saccharomyces). Rich in amino acids, essential minerals, beta-glucan and vitamins. Possesses anti-inflammatory, revitalising and protective properties. Increases cell respiration and metabolism, stimulates oxygen consumption and enhances skin repair.
Glycerin: A vegetable-derived molecule naturally present in the skin. Acts as an excellent humectant, a substance that attracts moisture from the environment and increases the amount of water in the surface layers of the skin.
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride: An ester derived from coconut oil and glycerin. Shows excellent emollient, moisturising and skin-replenishing properties.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol): A naturally derived vitamin with powerful antioxidant and photoprotective properties. Tocopherol is an excellent moisturiser that helps to reduce water loss and strengthen the skin’s natural barrier.

Zelens is a unique range blended with a remarkable number of unique ingredients, to prevent the signs of ageing whilst improving skin’s current tone and texture. In addition to new biotech actives, the range uses potent plant-derived ingredients, working in synergy to protect, regenerate and repair the skin. Zelens products combine powerful high-performance active biotechnology ingredients with the unique blend of plant-derived molecules with potent anti-aging and healing properties.
But simply combining ingredients derived from both sources does not create truly effective skin care. Ingredients must be carefully selected, science-backed and integrated in a formula to work in synergy. Only the exact balance and synergistic action of all ingredients can effectively trigger cellular processes necessary for skin regeneration and repair.
The sophisticated technology of our formulations including multiple ingredients that work in balance and synergy is essential to the remarkable effectiveness of Zelens products.
All Zelens skincare products have been subjected to extensive independent clinical testing at international research institutes to prove both safety and efficacy. None of the products have been tested on animals.
