Atzen - Superior To Organic S.C.
ATZEN disrupts the industry with Superior to Organic™ skin care. ATZEN blends the best of scientific skin care with natural skin care and infuses it with a French flair by combining organic plants and vitamins with scientific ingredients that work such as INTACT DNA™, peptides, resveratrol, ATP (liquid energy), and growth factors. ATZEN products have no parabens and no petrochemicals. ATZEN uses only the very best ingredients for your skin. Today's consumers demand safe and effective skin care and ATZEN delivers.
Safe and natural ingredients without sacrificing results
While many product lines usually fit into one category or the other, ATZEN is unique in combining Pharmaceutical Grade, Green, and Cosmeceutical ingredients. The ingredients are developed by leading laboratories in the USA, Europe, and Asia. Pharmaceutical Grade ingredients are the highest quality of ingredients (higher quality than cosmetic grade). Green ingredients and manufacturing methods respect the environment and protect your health. Cosmeceuticals have medicinal or healing elements.
Our ingredients are safe, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic (does not clog pores), and free of parabens, undesirable pollutants and petrochemicals. Our pharmaceutical grade antioxidant formulations use natural emulsifiers from olives and coconut combined with scientifically advanced active ingredients derived from sustainable and renewable resources. Furthermore, ATZEN does not test on animals and adheres to scientific principles respecting sustainability and a green lifestyle.
While ATZEN uses organic and/or natural ingredients (almost exclusively), the products are not 100% certified organic by choice. This is because we strive to bring you the best skin care products possible despite the unavailability of some ingredients in organic form. Our goal is to deliver skin health and comfort using the best and newest ingredients from organic or natural and sustainable sources.
Advanced Packaging technology + Look and Feel
Airless and ergonomic bottles and tubes were designed for easy, safe, and fast dispensing by ATZEN's award winning design team. Airless dispensers fully protect the formulation from contact with oxygen, which ultimately preserves the efficacy of the product. Airless pumps differ from other types of pumps because fingers only come in contact with the product when it is actually dispensed; the product is not routinely compromised by oils or residues on the hands. The product remains fresh and sanitary. It dispenses exactly the quantity of product needed - and there is no waste because it delivers up to the last drop.
ATZEN has identified airless jars and bottles as ideal packaging options for serums, and ultra-concentrated face and eye moisturizers.
Trusted by professionals
Estheticians and health professionals trust ATZEN products for facials and body treatments featured in spas, medical spas, and resorts. In many countries, medical doctors prescribe ATZEN to their patients.
Catherine Atzen, MBA, CIDESCO - Founder
"I was introduced to facials by an esthetician in France when I was 13, suffering from acne and sensitive, dehydrated skin. Although she did not have products able to completely solve my condition, she inspired me and guided me in caring for my skin. Since then skin care has been my passion. Years later, while working with cosmetic surgeons and doctors in esthetic medicine doing research in Paris on skin care for burn victims, I met scientists with whom I developed the first ATZEN formulas with DNA. Today we have access to natural ingredients and processes so sophisticated and scientifically advanced that the ATZEN line truly transforms one's skin safely in just a few weeks while calming sensitive and allergic skin conditions. This was my dream when I experienced my first facial and it is now available to all."
