All the colours used in Zao makeup are exclusively made with natural pigments (mineral or vegetable). The ingredients are chosen according to their specific properties in order to combine best makeup efficiency (colours, holding, rendering, lasting, textures…) and benefits for your skin.
The “star” ingredient of Zao brand. Used in the form of hydrosol, powder or macerate in Zao products, bamboo is extremely rich in organic silica, of which an external contribution is needed to maintain the elasticity of our tissues and our skin.
Its fatty acid composition gives it moisturising and nourishing properties. It is recommended as a stimulant of wound healing, protective against UV, soothing and calming.
Rice powder is one of the oldest cosmetic ingredients. It has the ability to give a very soft feeling and to mattify the skin, without clogging the pores, by adjusting the sebaceous secretion.
Its specific fatty acid, ricinoleic acid, makes this oil a beauty treatment with astonishing virtues already known in Antiquity. It relieves the afflictions of the skin by its purifying, softening and healing action.
Olive Vegetable Squalane
Extract from olive oil, it is a derivative of squalene which is a natural component of human sebum. Its excellent affinity with the skin and its emollient properties make it an ideal cosmetic ingredient. It strengthens the skin lipid barrier, softens the skin and protects it from dehydration.
Acacia gum or Arabic gum, derived from the acacia senegal tree, is used as a bonding agent which improves Zao mascara and eyeliner’s hold.
Present in all Zao’s products, with the exception of pencils, pure silver plays the fundamental role of natural preservative and antiseptic for the skin thanks to its antibacterial qualities.
Refillable and Sustainable
Thanks to an easy and inventive system, most of Zao’s products are refillable. Each product is packaged in a sustainable bamboo packaging which is both natural and ecological with its carbon negative status and innovative refill concept.
