“ To care & consider is about the relationship between each other and being a sustainable company. ”
Jeroen Oude Sogtoen studied fashion design at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute.
He worked for 10 years as a fashion designer and changed focus from fashion to interior design, and created alongside field specialists the concept for a boutique hotel in Amsterdam. Whilst creating an amenity line for this boutique hotel, in 2004 he started his brand ZENOLOGY.
“In my career, I have been fortunate enough to travel the globe and experience luxury travel first-hand. What struck my attention was the lack of qualitatively caring yet sustainable beauty products in hotels. So, I decided to create ZENOLOGY. A lifestyle brand, developing products on the edge of sustainable and nourishing technologies, whilst delivering a zen experience through the power of scent. All the while adhering to one guiding principle: to care & consider. To me, this goes beyond delivering the highest quality product. At ZENOLOGY, to care & consider is as much about the relationship with each one of our clients as it is about continuing to push the envelope on being a sustainable company, striving to be as green as possible.
Every day, thousands of people use our products in hotels worldwide. It fills me with pride to see how ZENOLOGY’s values of quality and sustainability are increasingly shared globally. It is my passion as founder of ZENOLOGY to give you the opportunity to bring hotel luxury home, through our exquisite ambiance fragrances and nourishing beauty products.”
Originated in the hotel industry, ZENOLOGY brings hotel luxury home through sensible, luxurious, quality beauty and lifestyle products. A fragrance driven lifestyle brand, where each product has been expertly crafted to deliver a fully immersive olfactive experience.
ZENOLOGY is about finding a balance between nature and science. Nature is our shared responsibility and we believe that each of us can make a difference. This is why we aim to be as green as possible. Our products are free from skin and environmentally unfriendly ingredients.
We care & consider, about the product, about you and about nature.

ZENOLOGY has always been committed to be at the forefront of sustainability in the luxury market, keeping our eyes open to the latest developments in the field, continuously striving to be as green as possible.
We believe that each of us can make a difference. For us, this means creating products that are free from ingredients that harm our skin or the environment. At ZENOLOGY we want to go above and beyond by creating a meaningful and lasting impact on our environment. Hence our pledge to plant a tree (through www. earthday.org) for each online order. This is how ZENOLOGY has planted thousands of trees over the years.

re-fills & re-use
We actively work towards waste reduction. That is why our bottles are refillable and why we offer our products in large containers. This way, you can extend the life cycle of your ZENOLOGY product and incidentally, safe yourself a few visits to the store. Additionally, our travel sizes can be refilled from our stationary bottles. This way you can re-use them and always have your ZENOLOGY ready to go.
