Introducing these fabulous toxin free nail varnishes by Zao. Enriched with silca made from bamboo oil to condition your nails. The Base and Top coat DUO, it’s a must have!
Like a Base, it protects and takes care of your nails. Like a Top coat, it optimises the performance of your nail varnish. It can also be used alone as a clear nail varnish.
'10 free' Nail Varnish meaning that 10 known toxins traditionally found in nail polish have been replaced. 82% of this new formula ingredients are derived from potatoes, corn, wheat and manioc. Organic water-based nail polishes can chip and flake very easily, so ZAO has devised a nail varnish that delivers the quality but without the toxic chemicals, resulting in an effective and long-lasting nail polish that does not compromise your health.
Their formula, enriched with bamboo rhizome macerate, rich in organic silica, helps to strengthen the nails. These nail varnishes offer excellent hold, ultra-shiny finish and fast drying.
The application is easy thanks to the large and flat brush which allows a perfect diffusion of the product on the whole nail. 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.
How to use:
Apply to bare nails as a base for your coloured nail varnish - 1 coat. Then apply your coloured nail varnish and once dry apply the Top Coat. Can also be worn alone for a natural healthy look.

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.
