Olympic “cupping” trend promotes blood flow – Just like OnZen!

A new trend has occurred at the 2016 Rio Olympics – an ancient therapy called “cupping”.

Several athletes have been spotted with red circles on their body, among them US swimmer Michael Phelps. These marks are remains of the cupping therapy which is a form of acupuncture and particularly used to ease pains and support physical recovery.

The technique is practiced by shortly lighting flammable liquid in a glass cup which is then placed on the body. The suction created when the glass cools down makes it stick to the skin. This process increases the blood flow which supports muscle recovery after exercise. However, not only the new cupping trend promotes blood flow. OnZen’s carbonated tablets achieve the same results while not only leaving the skin circle-free but actually leaving it moisturised and soft.

Quanace Skincare customers approve OnZen carbonated tablets

After a product test with OnZen Hair and Home Spa Quanace Skincare customers approve OnZen

As part of a product test 20 customers of the skincare brand Quanace have tested OnZen Hair and OnZen Home Spa tablets. An online questionnaire was completed afterwards. The overall feedback is highly positive. 85% of respondents state they would like to use the product again. Around 70% of people confirm they noticed a positive effect of OnZen during their hair care or bathing routine compared to their usual experience. A majority of 14 people has tested OnZen Home Spa while 6 others tried the hair equivalent.

Participants adding OnZen to their hair washing routine particularly confirm that their hair feels smoother during the wash. They also agree that it is easier to comb directly after washing. Moreover, three survey respondents each confirm that their hair is easier to style and feels less frizzy once dry.

On the other hand, Quanace customers approving OnZen Home Spa especially mention that the product helps them relax during the bath. For many the relaxed feeling lasts even long after the bath. Other benefits mentioned are the smoothing and moisturising effect on the skin.

Taking a closer look at who took part in the survey it can be concluded that half of respondents belong to the age group of 45 to 54 year olds and describe their ethnicity as ‘Black/ African/ Caribbean/ Black British’. This reveals that OnZen Hair and Home Spa work well for darker skins and frizzy, curly hair types.

Gloria Andrew, founder and CEO of Quanace Skincare is pleased with the results: “I personally really like OnZen and it’s great to hear that my customers share the same opinion. I’m looking forward to introduce OnZen into my business.”

The benefits of CO2 treatments for the hair and scalp – Adding value to hair salon services

The benefits of CO2 treatments for the hair and scalp – Adding value to hair salon services

One of the latest trends in Japanese hair salons is treating the hair and scalp with carbonated mineral water.

Since bathing in natural mineral springs is a century-old tradition in Japan its health benefits are long-established and have inspired salon owners to integrate these in their salon services. In the UK however the debate about benefits of CO2 treatments has only just started which is why we would like to provide you with a quick overview of their benefits.


What does CO2 do to the hair & scalp?

Water that is treated with CO2 has a strong negative ion charge which allows all positively charged impurities that attach themselves to the hair and scalp to be rinsed away thoroughly. This is a unique benefit that shampoos alone cannot deliver. In addition, carbon dioxide opens up the pores and its neutral pH-value improves blood circulation by stimulating the red blood cells. As a result, the hair and scalp are deeply cleansed, revitalised and the hair’s natural shine is revealed.

How can CO2 improve hair salon services?

Adding CO2 treatments to the portfolio of a hair salon significantly enhances the results of its existing services. Treating the water with CO2 does not replace shampoos or other hair care products but brings the effects of these to another level. Due to its ability of deeply cleansing the hair and scalp CO2 treatments also improve rinsing after chemical hair treatments such as colouring, making this process a faster and more thorough experience.

OnZen Hair carbonated tablets contain a balanced combination of carbonates and bicarbonates bringing the benefits of CO2 treatments to professional hair salons.

Beauty Bloggers publish insightful product reviews on OnZen Hair and Home Spa range

Beauty Bloggers publish insightful product reviews on OnZen Hair and Home Spa range

OnZen’s carbonated shower and bathing tablets have recently been tested and judged by several beauty bloggers and other professionals from the beauty industry. As a new brand creating an entirely new category in the overwhelming jungle of hair care products we are keen on receiving critical feedback from industry experts.

  • Professional Beauty Review - “We tried: Onzen Home Spa Shower and Bath Tablets” - Click to read more

Within the last few weeks beauty bloggers Sophie (Pretty and Polished Blog) and Sharon (Back To You Beauty Blog) as well as Beatrice from Professional Beauty have tested OnZen’s Hair and Home Spa products. Their feedback has been diverse but overwhelmingly positive.

Smoothing benefits of Home Spa bath

When testing OnZen’s Home Spa tablets the main benefit experienced by participants is softer skin that feels nourished and moisturised after the bath, certainly a rather unusual effect of bathing which often leaves the skin dry. Beatrice from Professional Beauty confirms however that she experienced “no need for an after bath cream that I would usually apply.” Moreover, she not only lists effects on her skin but as well on her general wellbeing, confirming that after the bath she felt recharged.

More shine and vitality for healthier hair

After washing their hair with OnZen Hair all women who tested agree that their hair has more shine after styling. Sharon adds that her hair generally felt revitalised, while Sophie noticed that what she calls her post-blow-dry frizz calmed down. Since the OnZen Hair tablets are used in conjunction with our designated shower heads we were also keen on hearing how the accessories performed during the trials. Although Sharon mentioned she would rather use OnZen on a weekly basis considering she has to change the shower head to use the product, Sophie emphasised how quickly the shower heads can be exchanged, she points out “I have had no issues with attaching the shower head – it was far easier than I thought!”

We would like to thank everyone who tested our products to date for the encouraging feedback and look forward to many more reviews in the future. If you have tried OnZen yourself, please share your thoughts and get in touch via
