Although Zao isn’t completely plastic free, their eyeshadow is refillable, making a much healthier, sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to purchasing an entirely new fully plastic product.
Note that all eyeshadow powders are talc-free, vegan, organic and cruelty free with limited plastic packaging.
These natural ingredients are what makes Zao makeup so special and amazing!
Bambusa arundinacea stem powder (micronised bamboo stem powder): Regenerate epidermis
A white substance extracted from the nodes of the bamboo. It is mainly composed of pure silica and has been widely used in oriental medicine. Organic silica, which is a component of connective tissue, is present throughout the human body and regenerates the epidermis as it is involved in the synthesis of collagen and elastin. Over time, our capital silica diminishes causing demineralisation and loss of skin elasticity. It is therefore necessary to regularly replenish the skin with transcutaneous supplies.
Macadamia ternifolia seed oil (organic macadamia seed oil): Moisturising and softening
This is an oil rich in essential fatty acids that also contains omega 3 and 6. It has a moisturising, softening and emollient action, which creates a soft touch and helps fight against free radicals
Silver (CI77820 micronised silver powder): Natural preservative
These micro-particles of pure silver are antiseptic (especially on skin and mucous membranes) and antibacterial as well, thereby preserving the product and protecting the skin. Microsilver is often used in creams to treat burns. Almost all products in the ZAO range (except the two lipbalms) contain micro-particles of pure silver (a natural preservative).
Silica (organic silica): Toning and moisturising
The human body contains about seven grams of silica, far more than any other mineral including iron (and silica is the second component of the earth”s crust with a 28% share after oxygen with 47%). The essential quality of silica allows the body to efficiently absorb and assimilate minerals and vitamins. The connective tissue of the human body (cell wall) is composed of collagen and elastin. These molecules need silica, which, however, is no longer synthesised after the age of twenty. An external supply is needed especially for the skin. For this reason, organic silica is contained in most of the products in the ZAO range.
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 eyeshadow 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 but Zao are working towards replacing this plastic packaging with card/paper in the future. The actual metal containers the eye shadow is held in are 100% recyclable aluminium.
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
To refill the eye shadow, there is a tiny hole on the back which you can use to pop out the compact and replace with a new refill or an entire new colour!
I use the back of an earring or a phone sim card key!
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.
Why Choose Natural & Organic
Once I started to realised the health effects and the impact my make up was having on both my skin and the environment I decided to make a change. By using natural ingredients that are organic and vegan you are doing yourself a favour and your being much kinder to the environment!
All ZAO makeup is cruelty free meaning no animal has suffered to make these cosmetics. They also offer refills on most of their products which again is so much better than buying a completely new packet, I love ZAO’s design and innovation to create natural organic makeup that can be sustainable and eco-friendly.
By choosing ZAO you can make a difference and are making much more environmentally conscious choices. ZAO also intend to reduce the amount of plastic they are using even further, which is why I am so happy to stock this brand.
