Rice powder is one of the oldest cosmetic ingredients. It has the ability to mattify the skin without clogging the pores by adjusting the secretion of sebum.
Organic corn starch is a vegetable support allowing a better adhesion of the powder on the skin, and thus a better holding of the make-up. It facilitates the dispersion of pigments and helps the consistency of the complexion on the skin.
Cocoa bean extract has the property of being anti-oxidant to fight against the bad effects of time. In addition it is a vegetable dye.
Bamboo powder is the white substance extracted from the joints of bamboo. Thanks to its high silica content, it remineralizes, hydrates and participates in the regeneration of your skin while reducing the shine of combination and oily skin.
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.
