Focus on some ingredients :
Bambusa arundinacea stem powder (micronised bamboo stem powder) :
A white substance extracted from the nodes of the bamboo. 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.
Theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter* (organic cocoa butter) :
Moisturises and protects
Cocoa butter protects the skin from aggressive external influences. It helps maintain moisture levels as it slows water loss from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin surface. It has been used in Africa for centuries as preventive care to provide the skin with flexibility and also as curative care for dry and bruised skin.
Silver (CI77820 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).
Silica (organic silica) :
Toning and moisturising
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.
Instructions for use :
To apply blush, follow the very simple "smiling cheeks" method: use a blush brush, smile and lightly dust blush on the apples of your cheeks in a circular motion. This technique puts a fresh look on your face with a rejuvenating effect.
ZAO Beauty tip : If you have only two minutes to get out of bed and you need to put a glow on your face fast, our tip: apply the compact powder on your entire face, then dust your cheekbones and browbones with your blush. Finalise with a touch of mascara and lipgloss if you want … an express make-up, simple and radiant!
