This superior moisturising formula contains nine potent active ingredients combined with a unique moisturising botanical blend.
Mimics the activity of the enzyme aconitase, a key player in the process of energy production occurring in mitochondria (cell's power stations). By increasing energy production in cells, pentapeptide stimulates cell metabolism and also helps protect mitochondrial DNA from oxidative damage.
Extracted from soybeans these peptides are biomimetic to mitochondrial respiratory chain proteins responsible for the production of cellular energy. Soy peptides increase energy production necessary for a cellular metabolism and protection against oxidative stress and damage. In addition, these peptides target a mitochondrial protein Sirtuin-3 (SIRT3) and thus preserve cellular longevity.
Contains three major minerals necessary for healthy skin: magnesium, zinc and copper. Their main activity is the stimulation of mitochondrial cell respiration and increase in the cellular energy production (synthesis of ATP). However, this complex also demonstrates other important activities: inhibits the generation of free radicals (antioxidant activity), prevents intracellular and tissue glycation of proteins (anti-glycation activity), improves the dialogue between keratinocytes (communication effect) and optimises the effect of other active ingredients as it makes cells more receptive to them (boosting effect).
A key component of connective tissue. Zelens uses a low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid to restore skin moisture, plump the skin and avoid epidermal thinning occurring during aging.
Sodium PCA is the derivate of amino acids. It is a naturally occurring humectant found in the skin. Sodium PCA supplies moisture to the skin.
A native soluble collagen of marine origin helps moisturise and plump the skin.
A natural, bioactive form of linoleic acid helps to restore the physiological lipid barrier functions. Omega-6 acids revitalise dry and damaged skin.
Probiotic complex contains bifido cultures in a biologically active milk-based matrix. It stimulates the skin’s immune system and protects the skin against environmental stress due to its anti-inflammatory properties. This complex also supplies to the skin nutritive elements from the milk.
Extracted from rosemary leaf this acid has strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It improves the tone and vitality of the skin.

Z Matrix formula contains a unique moisturising botanical blend composed of molecules extracted from 6 plants which help boost and maintain skin's optimum moisture levels. This blend is composed of: Cotton (Gossypium herbaceum), Chestnut (Castanea sativa), Flax (Linum usitatissimum), Oat (Avena sativa), Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis) and Shea tree (Butyrospermum parkii). You can read more about these important botanicals in the Zelens Garden.
In-vitro efficacy study
This study evaluated the efficacy of Z Matrix to enhance energy production in mitochondria (cellular power stations that generate energy) of human dermal fibroblasts.
The results from the study showed that Z Matrix- Moisture & Energy Infusion increases the number of active mitochondria producing energy by 18.3 % after 24 hours.
The pictures bellow show activation of mitochondria after 24 hours (red colour indicates energy production).
- • Improvement in skin moisture up to 168%
- • Improvement in skin elasticity up to 39%
- • 92% felt skin instantly more moisturized
- • 88% noticed immediate improvement in skin elasticity
- • 72% felt the skin was instantly energised
