Our resident beauty expert, Alison Young, already loves the range and is very much looking forward to working with Dr. Marko Lens (pictured left) - "It'll be very exciting to have a British medical expert sharing his research and secrets to improve the look of ageing skin."
We caught up with the brains behind Zelens Cosmetics to find out about the brand, his top skincare tips and more…
What's the philosophy of Zelens?
Zelens represents a new generation of skincare developed during my scientific research into the biological functions of the skin.
All Zelens products combine the high-tech active biotechnology ingredients with pure molecules derived from plants. But simply combining ingredients derived from both sources does not create truly effective skincare.
We believe that only the exact balance and synergistic action of all ingredients can achieve the best results. Zelens' effectiveness is substantiated through extensive and rigorous independent testing conducted at prestigious institutions.
As a plastic surgeon, what drew you to creating your own skincare range?
I always had a passion for skincare. As a child I loved to mix different plants with olive oil and make some preparations, which I believed could be good for the skin. But at that age I was just an “alchemist”. Then I studied medicine specialising in plastic surgery, and skin ageing became my main field of research.
Zelens was born as a result of my research. I really wanted to create formulas containing multiple ingredients that work on a molecular level to effectively mimic biological functions of the skin.
If you could choose one product from your range, what would it be and why?
This is a very difficult question as I love all my products. When I formulate products I need to be the first one to fall in love with them.
However, 3t Complex is a very special moisturising, age-defying formula on which I worked several years since it contains so many active molecules derived from 15 plants and five algae mixed in a blend of seven herbal oils.
What would be your top three skincare tips for summer?
First: reduce the look of eye puffiness and help diminish the signs of fatigue around eyes by using Triple-Action Advanced Eye Cream containing a mixture of potent active ingredients (including peptides, antioxidants and plant extracts) in an exclusive hyaluronic moisturising base.
Second: moisturise your skin and help revitalise it with invigorating ingredients. Z Matrix Energy & Moisture Infusion visibly boosts the look of vitality and leaves skin refreshed, smooth and radiant.
Third: avoid products containing paraffins (mineral oils) as they will block your pores during the summer period.
Are you looking forward to appearing on live TV?
I am really very excited about appearing on QVC; I've had a great welcome from the entire QVC team. Also, I am really so happy that my first show will be with your resident beauty expert, Alison Young on her Beauty Fix show. I am really looking forward to it.
