ZAO Silk Foundation applies easily and meets the needs of those who like a dewy, luminous complexion with full coverage.
Organic sweet almond oil, jojoba and shea butter give this foundation a deep moisturising effect that nourishes dry skin, as well as organic silica contained in bamboo hydrosol. This foundation has a semi-matt finish and uniform coverage to facilitate a long lasting coverage throughout the day.
Packaged in a glass bottle with bamboo lid and featuring an easy-to-use pump dispenser, the product is attractively presented in a bamboo pouch with drawstring, making Zao makeup both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.
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: 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 by mattifying it. 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.
Organic Jojoba Oil - Calming and softening, this oil penetrates easily into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling. It protects the skin against dehydration and wrinkles. Its dry texture and original composition allows it to strengthen the hydrolipidic film and regulate the sebum flow of oily skin.
Organic sweet almond oil - Very soft, this oil leaves a velvety appearance and a soft touch to the skin. Emollient, it nourishes the skin and protects it from drying out. Softening and strengthening, it activates the regeneration of the skin. Soothing, it calms itching and irritation.
Organic shea butter - Shea butter is extracted from shea nuts, a tree growing only in the wild in the savannahs of West Africa. Its composition rich in fatty acid gives it moisturizing and nourishing properties.
