Organic aloe vera juice (Aloe barbadensis leaf juice): The aloe vera plant is renowned for its use in natural medicine for centuries, and is used in our mascara for its abilities to treat conjunctivitis and other eye allergies. Known for its soothing qualities, organic aloe vera juice nourishes and fortifies eyelashes.
Organic castor oil: (Ricinus communis seed oil): Castor oil has purifying, nourishing and fortifying qualities, due to its richness in fatty acids and vitamin E.
Organic shea butter (Butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter): Shea butter is extracted from the fruits of the shea tree, which only grows in West Africa. Its richness in fatty acids promotes nourishment and moisture retention to skin. Recommended as a stimulant to wound healing, it is also protective against UV with soothing and calming qualities.

Although Zao as a brand are not completely plastic free, their products are one of the best eco-friendly options for sustainable, vegan and natural makeup that actually look and feel fantastic! I do truly 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. Their makeup is incredible and works even better than synthetic cosmetics. Honestly, you will love this brand, the colours they offer and how easy it is to apply!

How To Refill
Most of ZAO products are refillable.
These refillable mascaras are not 100% plastic free but the empty refills are recyclable.
To refill your mascara, simply remove the centre that holds the mascara and replace with your new refill. The middle is separated by a metal ring, which makes it easier to pull the empty bottle out.
Please do let me know if you have any questions.
How To Use
Load the brush carefully, but don’t overload.
Use the brush to start off with the upper lashes, holding the brush horizontally close to the root, move up in a zigzag motion while you look down.
Make sure to go over and concentrate on the ends to enlarge the eye as well as on the centre to open up the eyes.
Gently tap the eye lashes when applying mascara to the lower lashes, ensuring that you don’t overload them and leave them with a clean but volumised look.
Mascara is an essential part of your makeup kit, just a touch of mascara can work wonders.
Tips: before you put on mascara, always make sure your eyelashes are dry and free of cream or oil and if possible dust them with powder (this will give even more volume and staying power)
Open the mascara gently and in one movement, avoid pumping to keep the product on the brush, but make sure that you haven’t overloaded it also. If so just gently remove any excess with a tissue (not at the opening of the bottle)
If you have a few drops of mascara on your skin after you’ve applied it, wait until it is dry, then gently wipe it off with a our biodegradable cotton swabs.
If you are wearing foundation, you can dab a little on the cotton swab before removing the mascara to ensure your complexion remains even.
David was inspired to use Bamboo for organic make-up from when he received a natural gift made from bamboo! The round shape of this bamboo gift is the same shape as the ZAO make-up castings produced today. Not only is the ZAO the brand focused on using Bamboo for casings but also as an ingredient in their cosmetic range.
Aside from its stunning design, Bamboo is very specific for its high level of silica, essential for skin elasticity. ZAO is the first brand with such a connection with packaging and ingredients.
ZAO created 100% natural formulas enriched with active organic ingredients to enhance your skin’s natural beauty. This brand and it’s cosmetics are certified organic by Ecocert, every product is free from all toxic chemicals including parabens, instead using micronised silver as a preservative.
ZAO provides stunning colours and textures with a combination comfort and long lasting hold which is why I love this brand, their makup is incredible, it’s amazing that their range is organic, natural and vegan! An innovative product presented in a modern and sustainable material: bamboo.
I am so glad to be stocking ZAO makeup, this brand continues to develop packaging that is plastic free and sustainable. Although some of their products still come in plastic, they are working towards eradicating plastic completely in the future, which is why I want to support this incredible brand. They offer refills for most of their products which is by far a much more sustainable alternative to buying completely new, fully plastic makeup.
