ZAO Compact Foundation meets the requirements of those who want a natural complexion with full coverage. Its creamy and smooth texture makes it easy to apply and smooth into skin, with a mattifying effect to cancel out shiny areas. ZAO Compact Foundation is a true skin care product, containing silica powder, bamboo powder and bamboo rhizome oil, all of which are rich in silica and so regenerate skin.
Coverage: Build-able, from light to strong
This product, as with all ZAO products, is free from talc and 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 chemical preservatives.
ZAO Ingredients Highlight:
Bamboo powder: It is a white substance extracted from the joints of bamboo. Thanks to its high silica content, it remineralises, hydrates and participates in the regeneration of your skin while reducing the shine of combination and oily skin.
Organic bamboo macerate: Like organic bamboo hydrosol and bamboo powder, this material is extremely rich in organic silica, an external supply of which is necessary to maintain the elasticity of the upper layers of the epidermis. Indeed, organic silica stimulates the process of collagen production.
Vegetal Squalene: Extracted from olive oil, vegetable Squalene is a derivative of squalene, which is a natural component of human sebum. Its excellent affinity with the skin, due to its similarity with natural cutaneous lipids, and its emollient properties make it an ideal active ingredient. It strengthens the cutaneous hydrolipidic barrier, softens the skin and protects it from dehydration.
Organic babassu seed oil: Protective and film-forming, it prevents dehydration of the skin. Anti-radical and anti-aging (thanks to tocotrienols), it fights the ageing of the skin
Instructions for use: Easy to apply and smooth into skin, ZAO compact foundation is offered with a round sponge. It is also very convenient for an application with fingers or ZAO’s foundation brush.
ZAO Beauty tip: Choose the colour 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.
