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.

How to use

Apply one or two coats to clean nails.  Use as a base coat before applying Zao Nail Varnish

The composition is free of 10 harmful ingredients: toluene*, formaldehyde*, dibutyl phthalate*, formaldehyde resin, paraben, xylene*, camphor, rosin*, styrene and benzophenone. Therefore, with the new 10 free formula, we have now removed 2 new harmful ingredients: styrene and benzophenone.

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!

About Zao

Zao Make-Up is a make-up brand owned by Cosm’Etika France. It 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 4 friends chose to develop a brand of organic makeup in accordance with their deep values. They gave birth to Zao Make-Up, the first rechargeable make-up brand, 100% natural and certified organic by Ecocert. Convinced that a line of certified organic makeup must use a natural packaging, the elegance and modernity of bamboo assert themselves as obvious for David, Philippe, Yvan and Salima. All trees are carbon storers but bamboo’s exceptional growth rate makes it a carbon capture champion during its life-cycle. It allows Zao products to display a reduced carbon footprint. Bamboo is also incorporated into formulas in the form of sap powder, leaf hydrosol or bamboo rhizome macerate. This plant is rich in organic silica, an element naturally present in our body and that which participates in the process of producing collagen, which preserves the elasticity of tissues. Bamboo is the distinction and identity of Zao Make-Up.
