ZAO Silk Foundation applies easily and meets the needs of those who like a dewy, luminous complexion with full coverage. Organic sweet almond oil, jojoba and shea butter give this foundation a deep moisturising effect that nourishes dry skin, as well as organic silica contained in bamboo hydrosol. This foundation has a semi-matt finish and uniform coverage to facilitate a long lasting coverage throughout the day.
Packaged in a squeezy tube, this product is ideal for popping into your handbag for touching up your makeup on the move, and also for travelling due to its light, compact format.
ZAO Ingredients Highlight:
Organic bamboo hydrosol: Derived from the distillation of bamboo leaves, it purifies combination and acne-prone skin via mattifying action. Moisturizing and soothing, it is also beneficial for dry and sensitive skin. Thanks to its high silica content, it leaves a soft touch to the skin.
Organic Jojoba Oil: Calming and softening, this oil penetrates easily into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling. It protects the skin against dehydration and wrinkles. Its dry texture and original composition allows it to strengthen the hydrolipidic film and regulate the sebum flow of oily skin.
Organic sweet almond oil: Very soft, this oil leaves a velvety appearance and a soft touch to the skin. Emollient, it nourishes the skin and protects it from drying out. Softening and strengthening, it activates the regeneration of the skin. Soothing, it calms itching and irritation.
Organic shea butter: 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.
Instructions for use: Especially easy to apply thanks to its light texture, ZAO silk foundation is best used with a natural rubber sponge, sold separately. It is also very convenient to apply with fingers.
ZAO Beauty Tip: choose a colour that matches your skin tone without being too bright or too dark, to avoid the telltale ‘tidemark’ effect on the neck area. Apply the foundation from the centre to the outside.
