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 synthesized 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.
-micronized bamboo stem powder (all powders, concealer, gloss…)
-organic bamboo leaves hydrosol (fluid foundation, eye liner,…)
-organic bamboo rhizome oil (compact foundation)

Micronized silver powder: Almost all products in the ZAO range (except the two lip balms and the nail polishes) 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.

ZAO was also elected by "Ethical Living magazine" at the first place ranking in organic makeup: ethicallivingIssueAugust2012.
