The ZAO mascara "volume & sheathing" formula allows to thicken the lashes giving more volume to densify the eye. The specific shape of the brush gives to this mascara the sheathing effect that surrounds lashes by bending.
Combining traditional craftsmanship and modern design, the painted bamboo case emanates sophistication and originality. It is protected by a cotton pouch like a jewel. This beautiful presentation even makes the ZAO product range a perfect gift.
Instructions for use :
Work first the upper lashes, holding the brush horizontally closer to the root and then go up by making a zigzag while looking down. Well insist on the outside to enlarge the eye and on the center for a more open look.
ZAO Beauty tip :
Be sure to open your mascara gently and at one time! Avoid trips to retrieve the material on the brush! If the brush is overloaded., gently remove the excess with a tissue and not at the edge of the tube. Once your mascara applied, you may have a few particles on the skin. Let it dry and then using a cotton swab gently remove these particles without rubbing.
Focus on some ingredients :
Phyllostachis Nigra Extract* (Organic bamboo leaves hydrosol) :
Regenerates epidermisProduct of the distillation of bamboo leaves, It is mainly composed of pure silica and has been widely used in oriental medicine. Organic silica, which is a component of connective tissue, is present throughout the human body and regenerates the epidermis as it is involved in the synthesis of collagen and elastin. Over time, our capital silica diminishes causing demineralisation and loss of skin elasticity. It is therefore necessary to regularly replenish the skin with transcutaneous supplies. For this reason, most of the products in the ZAO range contain organic silica.
Acacia senegal gum :
Intensifying and soothing
Acacia gum or Arabic gum, derived from the acacia senegal tree, is used as a bonding agent which improves the mascara and eyeliner’s hold. Its wealth of polysaccharides and glycoproteins also makes it a real tightening and lifting cosmetic asset. In addition, acacia has softening, soothing and healing qualities for fragile mucous membranes, which helps prevent irritation when applying mascara.
Silver (CI 77820) (micronised silver powder) :
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 often used in creams to treat burns. Almost all products in the ZAO range (except the two lipbalms) contain micro-particles of pure silver (a natural preservative).
