Sun Protection: The BB Cream has a very well-balanced ratio of protection from potentially damaging UVA rays which can accelerate skin ageing and skin cancers, as well as from the UVB rays that are responsible for sunburn.The SPF contains NO nanoparticles or raw synthetic materials, instead deploying Karanja oil as an effective plant-based sunscreen due to its properties in providing natural protection against the sun.
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.
The BB Cream has been tested by dermatologists for hydration. Hydration is achieved by the use of various raw materials as follows:
Fucogel: This active ingredient has both active and sensory properties, immediately soothing and moisturising skin with restructuring and anti-ageing properties. It leaves your skin feeling soft and supple.
Pheohydrane: This marine complex is ideal to instantly moisturise skin and prevent water loss. Its intense and rapid moisturising properties combines a micro-algae extract rich in NMF* boosting amino acids, marine sugars with second skin qualities and a remineralising seawater concentrate.
* NMF = Natural Moisturising Factors that enable hydration of the stratum corneum.
AQUAXYL™: Its "anti-dehydration shield" action is guaranteed by strengthening the synthesis of essential lipids and proteins involved in the organisation of the stratum corneum. It is an essential ingredient of skin hydration, boosting all the factors involved in skin hydration, leaving skin looking beautifully hydrated with reinforced horny layer. The presence of Organic Aloe Vera and Glycerin enhances hydration.
Organic Bamboo Extract: Its high concentration at 25% is used to leverage the high concentration of silica in bamboo, Zao's star ingredient. Silica stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin fibres, facilitating firmness, elasticity and retention of moisture levels.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE: Apply a thin layer to bare or hydrated skin. Start by applying a small amount of the BB Cream to the abck of your hand, using your fingertips to warm it up. Put a small amount of BB cream on the back of your hand, warm the material with your fingertips and then dab onto your face, starting at the centre and then blending towards the hairline and neck. small touches on the entire face.

Feels good and love that the sample size is generous
really disappointed in this BB cream. colours seemed nice, but the finish itself was really powdery and dry, cakey. maybe just old samples? not sure but i don't have confidence to buy the actual product. one of the least-good BBs i've tried, unfortunately. (my other products were great)
I wasn't a big fan of this product. The cream was very thick and hard to apply, and I found it sat noticeably on my skin. Despite being fairly tanned at the moment, I bought the lightest shade and it was still too dark. It also clings to any slight dry patches on your skin. The only plus point is that it smells nice! Would recommend the foundation over this.
loved the look of this brand but unfortunately the samples I ordered just weren't up to scratch, couldn't even get the makeup to go on it just sort of rolled up in bits. fingers crossed it will be improved as the ethics are great . ZAO note: We have had a few reports that the product does not apply very readily on a minority of skin types so are planning a formulation tweak to ensure smooth application
I prefer a bit more oily texture. This one is on dryer side. Light shade is still a bit dark for me. Even lighter shade would be great.
