Mineral Silk : 100% naturel / 100% natural, Certifié BIO / Organic certified, (Ecocert, Cosmébio, Cruelty Free, Vegan)

Mineral Silk is a true powder foundation. What makes it original is its ease of use. And because it is applied on top of a personal choice of moisturiser, it is suitable for all skin types. This matt foundation is used with the kabuki brush and is talc-free, as are all our powders.

 

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 makes the ZAO product range a perfect gift.

 

 

MINERAL SILK

 

Focus on some ingredients :

 

Bambusa arundinacea stem powder (micronised bamboo stem powder) :

Regenerates 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.

 

Oryza sativa (rice) powder (organic rice powder) :

Softens and matifies

Rice powder is one of the oldest cosmetic ingredients. It has the ability to eliminate fat from the skin without clogging pores by adjusting sebaceous secretion. 

 

Organic certified and 100% natural Mineral foundation

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.

ZAO Beauty tip : Just like the compact powders, Mineral Silk also helps set the make-up for a better hold. To enhance your complexion, after applying your tone, use a two tones darker Mineral Silk as blush.
