Convinced that an organic certified make-up line must use natural packaging, ZAO have chosen bamboo for its elegance and modernity. All trees are carbon storage but the exceptional growth speed of bamboo makes it a champion of carbon capture during its life cycle. Creating an ecological refinement through the use of bamboo as a carbon storage material, ZAO products have a negative carbon footprint.
Inspired by a natural gift received from a Taiwanese friend (a pen and pencil made in bamboo material), David Reccole, Founder of ZAO was inspired to use bamboo for organic make-up. Aside from its beauty, bamboo contains a high level of silica, which is necessary for skin elasticity. Zao became the first brand to create such a connection between the outside and inside, mirroring true beauty.
ZAO has developed 100% natural formulas enriched with active organic ingredients to enhance your skin's natural beauty. Certified organic by Ecocert, their products are free from all toxic chemicals including parabens, phenoxyethanol, mineral oil, paraffin, polysorbate, EDTA, BHT and BHA. ZAO instead use micronised silver as natural preservative for the product and as an antiseptic for the skin.
