Perfume-free is better for your skin

At ZENZ Organic, we take care of your skin. We do this because every year more and more Danes are diagnosed with perfume allergy. The Danish Center for Allergy states that at least 20% of the Danish population today suffers from perfume allergy, also called contact allergy.

Perfume allergy is an allergic reaction to fragrances in care products that show up as itchy rashes with redness, bumps, blisters or dandruff. If you get allergic reaction once, you will have a the allergy for the rest of your life. The allergenic substances in perfume penetrate the skin, where they are met by our immune system. For some people, the immune system then goes on alert when it encounters the substance again - and then you have a perfume allergy. The next time the substance gets on the skin, an eczema reaction will occur within the next few days. And since the immune system is now ready to fight, you can get eczema everywhere on the body where you encounter the allergen - not just where you got the allergy.

Part of the history

Anne-Sophie Skjødt Villumsen is the woman behind the ZENZ Organic Products product series and the green hairdressing concept ZENZ Organic Hairdressing. During her apprenticeship as a hairdresser, Anne-Sophie developed allergies to traditional chemical hair products. In order to continue in the hairdressing profession and at the same time help others with the same challenge, she opened her first ZENZ salon in 1999 with a focus on health, sustainability and ecology. In 2010, ZENZ launched its first Nordic Ecolabelled and professional care products. It has since become a complete series under the name ZENZ Organic Products. ZENZ Organic Products is part of the organic ZENZ universe, which today is Denmark's largest green hairdressing chain. All products are made in the highest salon-quality and are based on natural and organically certified ingredients that gently care for and strengthen hair and skin.


Allergies and eczema can be incredibly inhibiting and cause major discomfort. The best way to avoid developing a perfume allergy is by being preventative. In collaboration with the Danish Environmental Protection Agency, we at ZENZ Organic Products have become part of the campaign Perfume-free is better for your skin, where we focus on especially young people's habits of use of care products with perfume in. If we can change young people's habits into usage of care products without perfume, we can help to prevent them from developing perfume allergies later in life.

At ZENZ Organic, we avoid any kind of potentially harmful substances in all of the products we use and produce. From shampoos and hair dyes to styling products, we only use ingredients that are natural and organically certified, and that gently care for and strengthen hair and skin. If you have a perfume allergy or are worried about developing allergies, we have developed a special allergy-friendly product series called Pure. All the products in our Pure series carry the AllergyCertified label, which means you can be sure the products do not contain allergenic substances such as perfumes, essential oils and preservatives.
