Zao Organic Concealer 499 Green
Don't be put off by the brightness of this little gem! Green neutralises red, so this green concealer is amazing at covering spots and blemishes, including spider veins and broken capillaries. Suitable for all skin tones apart from very pale skin.
How to apply: Use a tiny amount (preferably with a pinpoint concealer brush) only to the red area, blend the edges, then carefully pat your usual concealer over the top making sure not to rub at the green concealer. When applying foundation, blush or bronzer try not to rub over the concealed areas. You should find you don't need to add foundation to the concealed areas, but if you do, be sure to pat it on carefully so as not to rub the concealer off your skin. Try not to use too much product (less is more!) and blend the edges well for a flawless look.
The creamy texture offers great coverage without drying, blends easily and is long lasting. Will not gather in wrinkles and creases.

This product, as with all ZAO products, is free from talc and parabens (synthetic preservatives). Zao use micronised silver as an effective and non-toxic preservative. Zao does not use nanoparticles in their products, as the micronised silver is larger than nanoparticle size, making Zao products safe and free from toxic chemical preservatives. Although most Zao products are vegan, the concealers do contain beeswax.
To soften dark under-eye circles, start at the inner corner of your eye, move along the edge of the dark circles and blend towards your lower lashes. Apply with your finger or with a brush. To minimise imperfections using your finger, apply the cover stick to the area to correct and dab around it to even out the complexion.
Gingko Biloba leaf extract: Refreshing and antioxidant. An excellent anti-oxidant and skin-repair aid, ginkgo biloba is an exceptional cosmetic ingredient. Thanks to the ginkgo flavonoids it contains, it is a highly effective shield against free radicals, which are responsible for cells ageing.
Orbignya oleifera (babassu) seed oil* (organic babassu seed oil): Antioxidant and anti-ageing. Very rich in lauric acid, this oil has exceptional penetrating properties and is noted as non-comedogenic. It is sweet, very moisturising and Suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive. Its high concentration of tocotrienols provides antioxidant and anti-ageing values.
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).
Silica (organic silica): Toning and moisturising. The human body contains about seven grams of silica, far more than any other mineral including iron (and silica is the second component of the earth''s crust with a 28% share after oxygen with 47%). An essential quality of silica is that it allows the body to efficiently absorb and assimilate minerals and vitamins. The connective tissue of the human body (cell wall) is composed of collagen and elastin. These molecules need silica, which, however, is no longer synthesised from an age of about twenty. An external supply is needed especially for the skin. For this reason, most of the products in the ZAO range contain organic silica.
