Pren’tis Knight has always been a curious guy. From childhood, he was the type of kid who always wanted to know how things worked, then try to make them work better. This curiosity propelled him to study everything from biology to the culinary arts, areas where he could experiment with different combinations of foods or ingredients or elements. And it was one of these elements that would ultimately lead to the science behind our new natural personal care line, ZTEK.
Participating in sports ranging from football to combat arts, Knight was on the front lines of the skin and hygiene issues facing the modern athlete—such as rashes, equipment-induced irritations, and everyday cuts and scratches—and soon realized the personal care market was lacking quality products to address these needs. With an esthetician mom, Knight had access to the world of skin care, but found nothing that adequately addressed his needs, and certainly no natural products suited to the needs of active, multi-ethnic skin.
Necessity is, as they say, the mother of invention.
“I wanted to create a product that incorporated the extraordinary healing properties found in nature with the most cutting-edge technological advancements,” said Knight. “And I found that magic bullet, so to speak, in silver.”
Silver has been used for thousands of years for its healing and antimicrobial properties, and today can be found in products ranging from medical devices to battlefield dressings to skin care products. Combined with the healing properties and aromatherapy benefits of natural oils like lavender, rosemary and citrus, and soothing, vitamin E-packed shea butter, ZTEK incorporates the hygienic benefits of silver into alcohol-free and petroleum-free products for every part of your active life.
Knight launched ZTEK in 2016 with a commitment to purify, protect and heal the world through global hygienic safety and etiquette, offering you a natural alternative to the harsh, alcohol-based purifiers currently on the market. Today, ZTEK products address every stage of life and every type of activity, from everyday purification needs such as school and work to more interactive environments such as the gym or tattoo parlor to even our four-legged friends.
Use ZTEK before and after food preparation, diaper changing and child care, for treatment of minor cuts and abrasions, for wiping down common surfaces like desks, toys or equipment, and for your daily purification needs, especially during cold and flu season. Safe for use around children and pets, ZTEK offers natural, soothing, purifying protection for your day to day life, allowing you to get out there and live life to the fullest.
Because, like you, ZTEK is #AlwayzOn.
