Focus on some ingredients :

Bambusa arundinacea stem powder (micronised bamboo stem powder) :

Regenerate epidermis

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.

Acanthopanax senticosus (eleuthero) root extract (siberian ginseng root extract) :

Anti-inflammatory - toning

Siberian ginseng is an "adaptogen", a plant that increases the body's ability to adapt to different stresses regardless of their origins. Adaptogenic plants enhance the strength and vitality of the body, stimulate natural defences and provide energy and feelings of well-being. A wide range of health benefits are attributed to the use of Siberian ginseng. Interestingly, most studies on this ingredient are written in Russian or Korean. For cosmetic uses, particularly its anti-inflammatory and immunogenic properties have attracted interest.

 

Silver (CI77820 micronised silver powder) : 

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 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.

 

 Natural and organic make-up

Instructions for use :

This clay is ideal for those who love a great summer look! It gives the face a beautiful amber glow, a silky look that lasts all day. To structure and define the shape of your face, use a blush brush and apply mineral cooked powder on the contours of your face: from the top of the forehead along the hairline, down and along the lower line of your cheekbones, and finishing along the underside of the jaws. The idea is to draw a "3" on each side of your face. Finalise the look by applying the powder on the nose for a long nose, or on the sides of the nose for a wide nose. With this radiant, structured powder look, you can enjoy a sunshine feeling all year round. Adjust the tone to match the season. Your face will get a summery glow and look redesigned within seconds.

                                       

ZAO Beauty tip : Lighter than others cooked powders of the range, the 346 can be used in different ways, depending on the types of skin:

-For combination to oily skin, it is used as a classic "sun powder", it sculpts, structures and warms the face. Ideally applied with the face brush (156702) by making a kind of "3 inverted" on each side of the face.

-For tired complexion, it can advantageously replace the foundation. It warms and matifies instantly and permanently the complexion. For a discrete distribution choose a kabuki brush to apply (156701) or the new puff (156751) for more intense coverage.

-For lighter skin tones, it is best used as blush on the cheekbones to brighten the complexion.

-Generally speaking, it may also be used in "retouching" throughout the day.
