Zealios Botanical User Review
Quote | Reply
You're all familiar by now with our Nutritional User Reviews, where you are the reviewers. This is a little different, it's a maker of botanicals. I was introduced to Zealios by the folks at Hoka One One. Zealios is Hoka's next door neighbor. I asked the folks at Zealios whether triathlon was of specific interest to them, and the reply was, "Triathletes are our core demographic." So, there you go. I talked to the folks at Zealios, and we agreed that the sample size is going to be much larger than you need for the test period, but, assuming you like the product you'll have a nice supply. As well as I can tell this is what you'll be receiving if you're part of the testing cohort.

If the product and the terms and scope of the trial appeals to you, send the info asked for below to: info@teamzealios.com.

Zealios was founded in 2009 when a group of health-conscious athletes from the chemical industry set out to create the finest sunscreen on the planet.

As outdoor-loving souls, we understood the importance of protecting ourselves against the potentially harmful effects of direct sunlight. After years of testing and development with endurance athletes across the world, we proudly introduced our flagship product, Sun Barrier SPF 45, in the fall of 2012.

Zealios has now expanded its mission to create a full line of high quality personal care products for endurance athletes--from training day, to race day, to recovery & prevention. We design our product formulas to enrich performance, cleansing, and restorative needs of athletes everywhere.
