Although Zao isn’t completely plastic free, their concealer sticks are refillable, making a much healthier, sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to purchasing an entirely new, fully plastic product.
All of these concealer sticks are made using organic, natural and cruelty free ingredients. The eco-friendly packaging is made with bamboo and contains limited plastic. The bamboo concealer stick comes with it’s very own lovely, cotton pouch.
As with all Zao products, this is free from talc and parabens (synthetic preservatives), instead Zao use 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 man made toxic chemical preservatives.

These natural ingredients are what makes Zao makeup so special and amazing!
Organic castor oil (RICINUS COMMUNIS (CASTOR) SEED OIL)
This oil is emollient and so facilitates softer skin. It is also moisturising, increasing the water content of skin to keep it soft and smooth.
Organic carnauba wax (COPERNICIA CERIFERA (CARNAUBA) WAX)
Secreted by leaves of a palm tree native to Brazil, this wax is a film-forming agent that protects skin via the production of a continuous film; this helps makeup to last for a longer duration.
Organic bamboo macerate (PHYLLOSTACHIS BAMBUSOIDES RHIZOME EXTRACT)
Bamboo macerate is extremely rich in organic silica, required by the body for the production of collagen, the body’s anti-ageing weapon. Our bodies require silica to maintain elasticity of the upper layers of the epidermis.
ZAO makeup may not be 100% plastic free due to regulations but they are working towards plastic free in the future and are constantly reducing the plastic in their packaging.
This bamboo concealer is refillable, meaning you are still reducing waste and plastic each time you buy the refill rather than buying a whole new plastic casing. The refills do come in plastic that is easily and fully recyclable.
ZAO as a brand and their products are the best eco-friendly options for sustainable, vegan and natural makeup out there, 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 fantastic and works even better than man made chemical cosmetics. Honestly, you will love this brand, the colours they offer and the texture of their makeup.

How To Refill
Hold both the bottom of the bamboo casing with one hand and and the top refillable part in the other. Gently turn and pull out the empty refill. Then replace with a new refill by slotting into the bamboo casing and turning.
Genuinely economical, the refills reduce costs and plastic packaging.
The bamboo products also come in a classy pouch, making them even more sustainable and durable – so they can hold one refill after another after another… Nothing is easier!
How To Use
The Zao Concealer is the first step to achieving a perfect complexion and eliminating imperfections for ultimately a smooth and clear complexion.
It comes in different shades to suit all skin tones and the stick format allows you to apply the concealer directly and locally.
Choose a shade one tone lighter than the colour of your skin.
To soften dark under-eye circles, start at the inner corner of your eye, move along the edge of the dark circles and blend towards your lower lashes.
For a fast finish, apply the corrector directly or on your finger tip; for a more precise application, use a brush.
To minimise imperfections using your finger, apply the cover stick to the area to correct and dab around it to even out the complexion.
To balance and clear up your complexion, apply concealer on vessels, redness on the nose or deep lines of expression.
To hide spots that stand out, choose a darker tone than your skin tone (fashion rule: dark thins = make-up rule: dark softens).
The founder David Reccole, of this incredible organic, vegan and natural makeup brand has over 10 years of experience in organic cosmetics. With a vision to provide enriched cosmetics with active organic ingredients and sustainable packaging this amazing company ZAO was born!
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.
