HARNESSING THE LESSONS OF NATURE
Gezeiten is committed to the future wellbeing of life and the environments that support it.
GEZEITEN offers a high-efficacy skin-reprogramming treatment range with transformative effects, drawing on award-winning marine biotechnology, the body’s innate circadian rhythm and the care for the skin’s natural microbiome. Our core belief being that only healthy skin cells can renew themselves, repair damage and produce collagen and elastin, which are essential to achieve skin firmness and elasticity, and a smooth, even texture contributing to an overall youthful and flawless complexion.
GEZEITEN challenges the conventions of skincare, pushes the boundaries of its science, advances product and brand experience, driven by the vision that skincare goes deeper than just a formula and doctor’s advice: the conviction that there are valuable lessons we can learn from understanding natural cycles and the eco-systems that support all lifeforms.
The aesthetics of the packaging reflect GEZEITEN’s aspirations and passion for a perfect product, a perfect brand experience. The creation of an object that doesn’t speak the usual language of its beauty brand peers and stands out unapologetically. The patented and award-winning vessel is made to last, offers the customer an elevated experience and ensures sustainability, reusability (zero waste packaging).
GEZEITEN is dedicated to preserving the future wellbeing of both life and the environment, acknowledging our strong and vital interdependence:

GEZEITEN’S FORMULATION PRINCIPLES
GEZEITEN formulas work on two levels:
REPROGRAMMING: designed to put skin back into synch, rebalance its microbiome and promote its cellular health and natural rhythms.
TRANSFORMING: using advanced ingredients technologies that improve and change skin’s appearance and quality over time.
GEZEITEN partnered with a leading German dermatology lab, a team of life-science experts, and pioneering bio-technology scientists to develop a skincare range that builds above the current state of developments to deliver the possible blueprint for future standards. In every area and stage of our product development, we search for ‘the skincare science of the new age’.
The bigger thinking behind our approach is that to help skin overcome the challenges of the modern world, we must extend our understanding of skin and reconnect with its basic natural ways of working. Putting skin back in synch, helping it function.
This approach has led our efforts to work with specialists from various fields – which allows us to apply a 360-degree knowledge of the skin and to look at innovations in the various fields of:
Dermatology ∙ Biochemistry ∙ Biotechnology ∙ Chronobiology ∙ Marine biology
DISCOVER GEZEITEN’S ACTIVE INGREDIENTS
Biotechnology is the future of sustainable beauty. Our biotech engineering team use photobioreactors, which are tools that enable mastering the conditions for specific crops of ancestral micro-algae or of calcified algae that were unable to be farmed until now. These methods help ensure the preservation of precious ecosystems & the uninterrupted continuation of the planet's own life-giving cycles.
In addition, biotechnological active ingredients are of absolute purity (pollutant-, pesticide-, GMO-free and solvent-free) with optimal and controlled concentration.
SUSTAINABLY SOURCED INGREDIENTS
Our partners work on growing plants chosen for their efficacy, traceability, and rarity. Initially grown using soilless methods (hydroponic and aeroponic) for the production of seed, these plants are later multiplied and farmed sustainably in greenhouses.
In the open sea inside a private and protected concession, they farm algae on submerged systems to guarantee the perpetuation of the species. This growing method involves entirely manual harvesting and guarantees an exemplary raw material.
INNOVATIVE TESTING METHODS FOR SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN INGREDIENTS AT EFFICACIOUS LEVELS
All our active ingredients are tested in-vivo and in-vitro - on skin cell cultures, skin explants or new generation 3D dermis models to identify and scientifically prove their anti-aging, moisturizing, firming and other benefits.
GEZEITEN is partnering with an innovative Skin Biology and Molecular Biology laboratory, which works with the most advanced tests and models to highlight the cutaneous benefits of our active ingredients; among the most well-known are our Hydra Memory Test and our unrivaled 3D dermis models and tools of full transcriptomic screening allowing to have a global vision of the activity of an active ingredient on the whole human skin genome.
Union for Ethical Biotrade
There will always be areas where we can push further, which is why we have made it our core mission to continuously and painstakingly improve our sustainability practices and help setting new industry standards.
