Zao Makeup was co-founded in 2012 by four friends, David Reccole, Philippe Donnat, Yvan Rouvier and Salima Macozzi Reccole. Lovers of nature and aware of the impact of our consumption on the environment, the four friends chose to develop a brand of organic makeup in accordance with their deep values. The result is Zao Makeup, the first refillable make-up brand, 100% natural and certified organic by Ecocert.
Zao is committed to offering makeup products with irreproachable formulas made with 100% natural ingredients without petrochemical derivatives or synthetic preservatives. Their raw materials are obtained by a non-polluting and simple transformation of a plant or a mineral such as plant extracts, vegetable oils and butters, mineral pigments
For the sake of respect of all living creatures, none of their finished products and none of their raw materials are tested on animals. They exclude the use of ingredients of animal origin, such as beeswax and cochineal (red pigment). All Zao products are thus Vegan and Cruelty-free certified by PETA.
By creating a refillable system, Zao products produce less waste, use less plastic and consume less energy. And this packaging has a direct impact on the price of the product. By refilling your products, you can enjoy premium quality make-up at very affordable prices.
Eco design is at the heart of Zao's thinking. That’s why their primary packaging is bamboo. It is an ecological raw material because it has a phenomenal growth without the need of any fertilizers or pesticides. Bamboo only needs 4 to 5 years to regenerate against a minimum of 30 years for a tree! The bamboo used for their packaging grows in endemic forests in protected areas.
You don't need to choose between quality or kind makeup anymore. Texture, outfit, colour, comfort - Zao Makeup imagines and develops formulas that rank up there with the best brands, all while respecting nature and your health.
