Shea butter is extracted from shea nuts, a tree growing only in the wild in the savannahs of West Africa. Its composition rich in fatty acid gives it moisturizing and nourishing properties.
Cocoa butter protects the skin from external aggressions. It helps to maintain hydration because it slows the loss of water by forming a barrier on the surface of the epidermis. It has been used for centuries in Africa as a preventive care to provide suppleness to the skin and also in curative care against dryness.
Quality makeup created with ethics and passion, based on the principals of sustainability. Co-founded in 2012 by four friends, David Reccole, Philippe Donnat, Yvan Rouvier and Salima Macozzi Reccole. Lovers of nature and aware of the impact of our consumption on the environment, the 4 friends chose to develop a brand of organic makeup in accordance with their deep values. They gave birth to Zao Make-Up, the first rechargeable make-up brand, 100% natural and certified organic by Ecocert.They are also vegan friendly and not tested on animals, and have even been awarded ‘Slow Cosmetique’. They use no nasties such as palm oil, parabens or sulphates. No petrochemical derivatives or synthetic preservatives. Convinced that a line of certified organic makeup must use a natural packaging, the elegance and modernity of bamboo assert themselves as obvious. All trees are carbon storers but bamboo’s exceptional growth rate makes it a carbon capture champion during its life-cycle. It allows Zao products to display a reduced carbon footprint. Bamboo is also incorporated into formulas in the form of sap powder, leaf hydrosol or bamboo rhizome macerate. This plant is rich in organic silica, an element naturally present in our body and that which participates in the process of producing collagen, which preserves the elasticity of tissues. Bamboo is the distinction and identity of Zao Make-Up, with the added bonus that the majority of products are refillable, meaning less waste.
