Our Story




Zen Society was founded in Connecticut by Kaitlyn Gustafson, a board certified Holistic Health Practitioner (AADP) specializing in Master Herbology. Zen Society was founded on the principle that beauty comes from simplicity. Zen Society’s goal is to foster a world free of chemicals and toxins and to promote overall well-being. Our healthy formulas are created with ingredients from the roots of nature and are 100% Pure (Preservative Free).


We want our society to make a difference; we want people to live more natural; we want to see a culture that is about people and the environment.




We use recyclable, environmentally friendly packaging. Our PET bottles are BPA free and are tested to ensure there is no release of phthalates, chemicals or carcinogens. We do not use any excess packaging or product boxes to help save trees. Our shipping boxes are made from 100% recycled material and our starch-based packaging peanuts are biodegradable and easily composted to prevent landfill waste streams.


We are a member of PETA’s Caring Consumer Program and recognized as a cruelty free and vegan company. Zen Society is a proud signer of The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and The Natural Pledge. We use natural and USDA certified organic oils and extracts that are biodegradable so they do not pollute our soil or marine systems. A percent of each sale is donated to Friends of the Earth to help fight for a clean and sustainable planet.


Zen Society takes pride in offering fresh, handcrafted products. We use the highest quality of 100% natural and USDA certified organic ingredients which are cold pressed and unrefined. If our oils are heated, they are never heated above 120° so they retain all vitamins, minerals and nutrients to provide ultimate nourishment to the skin. We include Fair Trade and locally harvested ingredients whenever possible. No parabens, pesticide sprays, petroleum, silicone, synthetics, artificial fragrances, dyes, GMO, or harmful processed additives.

Our fresh ingredients come from a mixture of organic herbal, plant, and fruit botanicals, USDA certified organic oils, and organic floral waters. Our products are created on demand because natural and organic ingredients should never have a long shelf life like commercial products do. Our freshness enables us to offer preservative free products. Jojoba oil is used as a natural preservative for a 6-12 month product life. Any scent that our products may have is 100% natural and is derived completely from the constituents of essential oils and other plant materials.
