Our gorgeous range of pearly eyeshadows come in a bamboo refillable case with it's own cotton travel pouch!
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.
****Due to hygiene reasons we are unable to refund this product once purchased****
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.
Oryza sativa (rice) powder (organic rice powder): Softens and mattifies
Rice powder is one of the oldest cosmetic ingredients. It has the ability to eliminate fat from the skin without clogging pores by adjusting sebaceous secretion.
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).
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.
How To Use
Apply with a makeup brush or your finger. Apply with a make up brush for a more defined look.
When applying with a makeup brush we recommend first applying a bit of face powder or cosmetic clay to your eyelid starting at the base of your lashes. The clay/ powder will give the eye shadow something to sink into.
Blend the eye shadow outwards using a make up brush, or your finger.
Use in the corner of your eye to make them pop.
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. An earring or a sim card key could be used.
