Zeosoft (a NZ owned business), was born when specific minerals were found in a volcanic region of the central north island. These minerals are known as zeolites and there are many forms of them. What makes ours so special is that it’s young, only around 10,000 years old!
We call this zeolite Soft Zeolite, and as the name suggests it’s much soft than other zeolites, making it perfect to grind into a powder and suspend in 100% natural ingredients to make our range of cleansers like no other.
Great For Sensitive Skin – 100% Natural Formulation
The Zeosoft range is made from completely natural ingredients which are combined with the natural Soft Zeolite, which gently cleanses and is perfect for sensitive skin types which may react to harsher cleansers. This safe, effective range of cleansers remove contaminates from your skin, leaving it feeling supple and revived.
The Soft Zeolite used in Zeosoft has a hollow cage structure. Inside these cages are exposed negative charges allowing it to magnetically pull contaminants away from the skin and trap them inside the Soft Zeolite which is then flushed away with water.
Soft Zeolites have a large molecular surface area where 1 gram = 145 meters, enabling it to remove toxins from the skin and continue to clean when it is flushed into our waterways. Soft Zeolite can also hold up to 70% of its own body weight, adding to the unique cleansing properties of Zeosoft.
Zeolite “detoxifies” or “absorbs toxins”.
Zeolite is well documented as being able to adsorb (chemically bind in) rather than absorb which is a surficial process) a wide range of elements recognized by science and medicine as toxic elements such as lead cadmium mercury etc. Absorbency Tables
Zeolite “disinfects”, “deodorises” or “softens the skin”
There is a body of evidence that zeolite has an impact upon bacterial species. The product also contains varying amounts of clays; these are usually smectite clays which are somewhat greasy as they slide along their basal crystallographic axis. Clays such as smectite are commonly the bases for mud packs and other such cosmetic formulations. No doubt there is clinical data on calcium smectite in the literature as it is a common additive in skin care preparation. It too has a cation exchange capacity which enables it to adsorb certain metal ions including toxic metals…lead for example from car exhaust emissions.
Zeolite “conditions the skin”
The silica in Zeosoft’s soft zeolite is a mixture of opaline and amorphous silicas; and are highly reactive and quite hydrous unlike “sand”. This reactivity enables the silica species to liberate ionized silicon to the dermis and it is an established fact that silicon is beneficial to cell and skin growth. The claim of conditioning is the nourishment of dermal cells and removal of aged oils and incorporated toxins caught from atmospheric emissions.
Zeosoft Mineral Face Scrub is designed to gently remove contaminates and bacteria that causes acne to form, and nourish and protect your skin to prevent further breakouts to keep you happy and healthy.
“Normally after using a face scrub my skin can feel quite tight, dry and sometimes irritated. However after the first time using this product I was amazed. My skin felt so clean, soft, and was actually noticeably glowing! I have been using this product every second day for the last couple of weeks and am still in love with it each time I use it. My skin has also not broken out in pimples from using this scrub either which is a big positive for me.” – Nicole
Microbeads are tiny particles of plastic have been added to personal care products. Wastewater treatment plants are not designed to filter out microbeads and that is the main reason why, ultimately, they contribute to the Plastic Soup swirling around the world’s oceans.
These microbeads are passed along the marine food chain. Since humans are ultimately at the top of this food chain, it is likely that we are also absorbing microbeads from the food we eat.
Zeosoft does not or will not ever use Microbeads, instead, we use the naturally formed mineral Soft Zeolite, which has extremely good cleansing qualities previously outlined. In fact, when the Soft Zeolite enters a waterway it keeps cleaning, actually improving the environment rather than damaging it!
I have incredibly sensitive skin and find it difficult to find suitable cleansers that work without a reaction. I have found trialing Zeosoft Natural Skin Cleanser a blessing. My skin feels clean, detoxified and healthy after cleansing with this product and doesn't feel too dry. It removes light makeup without being too harsh and the fragrance is very natural which is great as fragrances can irritate my skin. I really like the contemporary packaging and the fact that the product doesn't have too many nasty ingredients listed on the back, I also appreciate that this product is made in New Zealand and ingredients are sourced from thermal spring valleys near Rotorua. It's also good to see this product is free of parabens, artificial colours and fragrances and the environment has been considered in the manufacture of this product. I would use it again.
Lathers really nicely on the skin and has a decent - yet soft exfoliant. I was really nervous to put it on my skin but it was incredibly gentle. Left my skin feeling super baby bottom smooth with a yummy clean sort of lemongrass scent. Felt really clean but not stripped like some do.
I bought this stuff in a store a couple of weeks ago. Utterly amazing stuff. Gobsmacked at how good my skin feels after using it. Will definitely be buying it again.
I love that this product is very natural and gentle on my skin. I appreciate the local ingredients and I love the fact it's different to all of the other cleansers on the market. It's also a mild (really, really mild) scrub, so your skin is left feeling clean and refreshed.
I have been using the Face Scrub twice a week to exfoliate. I usually apply a pea size amount to wet skin and rub thoroughly over my face and then rinse off and pat skin dry. This product leaves my skin feeling super clean, soft and fresh. I love that this product is gritty but not overly gritty like other exfoliators I have tried and it does not leave grit along my hairline once rinsed off. Most of all I love that this product is natural and NZ made, environmentally friendly with no nasty chemicals.
Loved this product! It was not harsh and the smell was not overpowering. I liked the gentleness - initially because it said "mineral" I thought it might end up being too much of an exfoliating product but thankfully it is a pure cleanser that didn't redden my skin.
After the 10 days my skin does look brighter and more supple, certainly has a nice cleansed look great for my 68-year-old face.
My skin always feels clean, soft and refreshed after using this. I have also noticed long-term benefits as my skin is overall a lot clearer and easier to manage. I would definitely repurchase this as it is not too expensive for the amazing quality of the product and I think it will become one of my go-tos from now on.
