Do you want to avoid shine on your face? Go for the powder compact. It sets, mattifies and balances the complexion for a smooth and silky finish.
Note that all of our powders are talc-free.
An essential item in your beauty case, the pressed powder provides a shine-free complexion with its high capacity to absorb the oil on your skin, keeping it soft and velvety.
Suitable for all skin types including the most sensitive ones.
Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a cotton pouch with drawstring, ZAO makeup is both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.
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 proucts safe and free from toxic chemical preservatives.
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.
Organic cocoa butter: Moisturises and protects
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.
Organic Silica: Toning and moisturizing
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%). The essential quality of silica 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 after the age of twenty. An external supply is needed especially for the skin. For this reason, organic silica is contained in most of the products in the ZAO range.
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).
For a mattifying effect, apply the compact powder lightly with the powder brush.
To cover skin problems, apply the with a sponge.
In both cases, always choose a shade similar to your skin tone and use the product immediately after your day cream.
To perfect your complexion after applying foundation, dust pressed powder on the entire face.
For a natural effect, use a powder brush.
For a "baby doll" result, choose a sponge.
Tip: Always remember to dust the eyes before applying pencil eyeliner and mascara. This will prevent any smudging effect right through to the end of the day!
