Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a cotton pouch with a drawstring, ZAO makeup is both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.


This product, as with all ZAO products, is free from parabens (synthetic preservatives), using instead micronised silver as an effective and non-toxic preservative. ZAO does not use nanoparticles in their products, with the micronised silver being larger than nanoparticle size, making ZAO products safe and free from toxic preservatives.


 

Instructions for use:

Especially easy to apply thanks to its light texture, ZAO Silk Foundation is best used with a natural rubber sponge or Foundation Brush, sold separately. It is also very convenient for application with fingers.

710-712 are from the Ethnic Collection for super fair complexions:

710 suits super fair complexions with a warm, peach undertone

711 suits super fair complexions with a neutral undertone. This shade can be used to conceal pink undertones.

712 suits super fair complexions with a yellow undertone that they wish to balance. Especially suited to Asian complexions or to lift super fair sallow skin.


If you suit colours like gold, copper, bronze, orange-reds and earthy tones, then your skin is likely to have peach, yellow or golden undertones and so would suit a warm-toned foundation.


If you suit colours like magenta, silver, grey, blue-red or jewel tones, then your skin is likely to have cool undertones with pink, red or blue undertones and so would suit a cool-toned or neutral foundation.If you prefer to disguise pink tones to your skin, then a neutral-toned foundation would achieve that.


If you look good in any of these colours, then your skin is likely to have neutral/mixed undertones. If unsure, check the veins on your arms, as those with cool-toned complexions have blue or purple veins, whilst those with warm complexions tend to have green veins, and if you cannot decide, then you most likely have neutral undertones.

Focus on some ingredients:


Phyllostachys Nigra Extract* (organic bamboo leaves hydrosol):

Regenerates epidermis

Product of the distillation of bamboo leaves, 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. For this reason, most of the products in the ZAO range contain organic silica.

Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil* (organic sweet almond oil):

Nourishes, softens and moisturizes

Very soft and very pleasant to apply, it makes the skin smooth and leaves a velvety touch. Emollient, it nourishes and protects skin from drying out. It is softening and invigorating, thereby activating the skin's repair function; by soothing and calming, it reduces itching and irritation



 

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).


 

 

 

ZAO Beauty tip: Choose the color that matches the colour of your skin. Neither too bright nor too dark to avoid contrast with the natural complexion of the neck. For a medium coverage, you can apply directly with fingers. The foundation is applied from the centre to the outside, without forgetting the nose.
