Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a bamboo pouch with drawstring, ZAO makeup is both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.
Organic corn starch: Organic corn starch is a vegetable-based ingredient that enables enhanced adhesion of the powder on skin, and thus longer-lasting makeup. It facilitates the dispersion of pigments and in this way helps the consistency of the complexion on skin.
Bamboo powder: White substance extracted from the joints of bamboo that is rich in silica to remineralise, hydrate and participate in the regeneration of your skin while reducing the shine of combination and oily skin.
Organic macadamia oil: Restructuring, nourishing, protective and soothing, this oil is ideal for sensitive and dry skin. It penetrates quickly without leaving a greasy film on the skin.
Organic cocoa butter: Cocoa butter protects the skin from external aggressors such as pollution. 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.
Instructions for use: Compact powder is an essential in your makeup bag to maintain a shine-free, even complexion, thanks to its high capacity to absorb sebum (natural facial oils).For a matt effect, apply the compact powder with the Zao Face Brush. To cover problem areas, use a sponge to apply the compact powder, such as ZAO’s natural rubber sponge. In both cases, always choose the same shade to your skin tone and use the product immediately after moisturising. To perfect your complexion over foundation, apply compact powder by choosing a tone lighter your skin tone. For a natural look, use a powder brush; for a ‘babydoll’ effect, use the sponge.
ZAO Beauty Tip: Always remember to dust your eyes before applying mascara and eyeliner, to set your eye makeup and prevent it smudging after a long day. Looking for a darker shade? Go for the Mineral Cooked Powder no. 344 (chocolate). This is a matt cooked powder that is not only used for a bronzing effect but also as an everyday powder to mattify the full face or as a blush for darker skin.
