Nail Hardener - Zao Makeup
Introducing a toxin free (10 free) nail hardener by Zao.
Enriched with silca made from bamboo oil to condition your nails. Strengthen and condition nails, thanks to silica, it can be used as a treatment for brittle nails that need fortification. It is ideally applied as an undercoat prior to applying nail polish.
'10 free' Nail Varnish meaning that 10 known toxins traditionally found in nail polish have been replaced. 80% ingredients from natural origin. In this new formula Zao have changed the petrochemical solvents to Agro-solvents from corn, potatoes, manioc and wheat. These come in a glass bottle with a bamboo lid. There is a small amount of plastic in the lid due to these needing to be leakproof.
Zao continue to lead the way in sustainable and natural cosmetics. They are looking at a refill and plastic-free alternative. We also stock Zao's Duo Base & Top Coat.

Zao isn't completely plastic free though these nail varnishes are still a much more healthier, sustainable and eco-friendly alternative. ZAO as a brand and their products are the best eco-friendly options for sustainable, vegan and natural makeup we have tested. We believe this is a far better choice than purchasing a completely new plastic packaged makeup. ZAO are always working towards reducing their plastic which is also why it is so great to support this brand. Along with being 100% Natural, Vegan & Cruelty-free ingredients they continue to work towards being plastic-free . At Vera-Bee we will always support brands like Zao who are leading the way in sustainable eco-friendly makeup!
