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. Find your skin tone and take into account whether you have warm, cool or neutral undertones to find your best colour. Please e-mail us if you need some help in selecting the best colour for you.
Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a cotton pouch with a drawstring, ZAO makeup is both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.
This product, as with all Zao products, is free from 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 preservatives.
Especially easy to apply thanks to its light texture, Zao silk foundation is best used with a natural rubber sponge, sold separately. Can also be applied with fingers or a foundation brush for lighter coverage and a more natural look.

Key ingredients: Phyllostachys Nigra Extract* (organic bamboo leaves hydrosol): Regenerates the epidermis. Product of the distillation of bamboo leaves, mainly composed of pure silica and is 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. For this reason, most of the products in the Zao range contain organic silica.
Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil* (organic sweet almond oil):
Nourishes, softens and moisturizes
Very soft and very pleasant to apply, it makes the skin smooth and leaves a velvety touch. Emollient, it nourishes and protects skin from drying out. It is softening and invigorating, thereby activating the skin's repair function; by soothing and calming, it reduces itching and irritation.
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.
