This product, as with all ZAO products, is free from 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 products safe and free from toxic preservatives.
Coverage: Medium to strong - can be built up.

How to use
Especially easy to apply thanks to its light texture, ZAO silk foundation is best used with a natural rubber sponge or foundation brush. You can also apply with fingers.
ZAO Beauty Tip: choose a colour that matches your skin tone on face and neck without being too bright or too dark, to avoid the tell-tale 'tidemark' effect on the neck area. Find your skin tone and take into account whether you have warm, cool or neutral undertones to find your best match. Please e-mail us if you need some help in selecting the best colour for you. Apply the foundation from the centre to the outside of your face, blending into the neck area

About the ingredients
Organic bamboo hydrosol: Derived from the distillation of bamboo leaves, it purifies combination and acne-prone skin via mattifying action. Moisturizing and soothing, it is also beneficial for dry and sensitive skin. Thanks to its high silica content, it leaves a soft touch to the skin.
Bamboo powder: White substance extracted from the silica-rich joints of bamboo to remineralise, hydrate and assist in regenerating skin, as well as reducing excess sebum.
Organic aloe vera: Renowned for its softening calming properties, aloe vera repairs and soothes even super-sensitive skin. It has excellent moisturising properties due to its ability to compensate for water loss in skin.
Magnolia Bark Extract: Used medicinally for centuries, this small tree is native to Asia where it is known for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, soothing and antioxidant properties. As such this ingredient helps reduce redness and the appearance of ageing skin.
