Zao Organic Liquid Lip Gloss 004 Brown
A subtle natural look without shimmer. This lovely nude brown will suit pale and medium skin tones and anyone looking for a touch of gloss without that 'gloopy' feeling.
Combining traditional craftsmanship and modern design in a beautiful painted bamboo case, this lip gloss is packaged in a cotton pouch so is perfect as a gift.
Apply the gloss by smoothing it on gently with the sponge applicator. Use over a lipstick in the centre of your lips to add a gloss effect or directly on your lips for a subtle and natural look. You can also apply a lipliner pencil to the contour of your mouth to keep your gloss intact.
Suitable for all types of skin. Especially for sensitive, dry and chapped lips.

Bambusa arundinacea stem powder (micronised bamboo stem powder):
Regenerates the epidermis. A white substance extracted from the nodes of the bamboo. It is mainly composed of pure silica and has been widely used in oriental medicine. Organic silica, which is a component of connective tissue, is present throughout the human body and regenerates the epidermis as it is involved in the synthesis of collagen and elastin. Over time, our capital silica diminishes causing demineralisation and loss of skin elasticity. It is therefore necessary to regularly replenish the skin with transcutaneous supplies.
Theobroma Cacao (cocoa) seed butter * (organic cocoa butter):
Nourishing and protecting. Cocoa butter protects the skin from aggressive external influences. It helps maintain moisture levels as it slows water loss from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin surface. It has been used in Africa for centuries as preventive care to provide the skin with flexibility and also as curative care for dry and bruised skin.
Silver (CI 77820) (micronised silver powder):
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).
Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil* (organic castor oil):
Moisturising. The pressure within the castor seed produces triglycerides valuable for their plasticising and film-forming properties. Castor oil is a very rich substance (one of the richest in fatty acids) that penetrates the skin quickly while providing nutrition and moisturising without leaving a greasy feeling but rather a silky one. It helps reduce the appearance of brown spots on the skin. It is a "beauty oil" that, since time immemorial, has been used extensively in the Caribbean and Africa.
