BEAUTY OF BAMBOO OUTSIDE, BENEFITS OF BAMBOO INSIDE
 
 
REFILLABLE AND SUSTAINABLE
Thanks to a simple and innovative system, quite all our products are refillable**. Genuinely economical, the refills reduce costs and packaging, while also allowing to free creativity and play with our wide range of colors. The bamboo products also come in a classy pouch, making them even more sustainable and durable – so they can hold one refill after another after another... On first purchase, consumer chooses a bamboo item with makeup inside, on second purchase, he just have to buy the refill.
 
 
INNOVATIVE AND NATURAL
To make ZAO an innovative makeup line in every stage of its conception, we have chosen a natural packaging: bamboo, for its elegance and modernity. All trees store carbon, but the exceptional speed of growth of bamboo makes it a carbon capture champion throughout its life cycle. As a carbon storage material, it allows ZAO to a very satisfying carbon footprint - in other words: ecological sophistication.
 
 
COHERENT AND REGENERATING
With a mind to combine make-up efficiency (colors, lasting, rendering...) and respect of your skin, we use innovative natural and organic ingredients with specific properties. We have for example two families of original and beneficial ingredients that are used in all our formulas:

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.
