Our Zao concealer stick comes in a sustainable and refillable bamboo casing, with it’s very own drawstring cotton travel pouch.
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.
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.

****Due to hygiene reasons we are unable to refund this product once purchased****
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.
How To Use
Choose a shade one tone lighter than the colour of your skin.
The concealer stick can be applied directly to 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).
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!
