Care make-up

With a mind to combine make-up efficiency (colors, lasting, rendering...) and respect of your skin, we use innovative natural and organic ingredients with specific properties. We have for example two families of original and beneficial ingredients that are used in all our formulas :

 

Bamboo, organic silica

The human body contains about seven grams of silica, far more than any other mineral including iron (and silica is the second component of the earth's crust with a 28% share after oxygen with 47%).

An essential quality of silica is that it allows the body to efficiently absorb and assimilate minerals and vitamins. The connective tissue of the human body (cell wall) is composed of collagen and elastin. These molecules need silica, which, however, is no longer synthesised from an age of about twenty.

An external supply is needed especially for the skin. For this reason, most of the products in the ZAO range contain organic silica.

-micronised bamboo stem powder (all powders, concealer, gloss…)

-organic bamboo leaves hydrosol (fluidfoundation, ey liner,…)

-organic bamboo rhizome oil (compact foundation)

 

Micronized silver powder

Almost all products in the ZAO range (except the two lipbalms and the nailpolishes) contain micro-particles of pure silver (a natural preservative). These micro-particles of pure silver are antiseptic (especially on skin and mucous membranes) and antibacterial as well, thereby preserving the product and protecting the skin. Microsilver is really useful for sensitive even atopic skins.
