Although Zao isn’t completely plastic free, their shine-up powders are refillable, making a much healthier, sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to purchasing an entirely new fully plastic product.
All of these shine-up powders are talc-free vegan, organic and cruelty free with limited, if any plastic packaging.
This highlighter powder, as with all Zao products, 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!
Bambusa arundinacea stem powder (micronised bamboo stem powder): Regenerates 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.
Linum usitatissimum (linseed) seed oil*:
Flax seed oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, renowned for their nourishing properties.
Glycine soja (soybean) oil*:
Virgin soy bean oil is rich in essential fatty acids, renowned for their moisturising, restructuring and regenerating properties.
Zingiber officinale (ginger) root extract:
Natural ginger root extract, renowned for its invigorating properties.
This natural active ingredient is derived from plants and has great healing power.
Olea europaea (olive) leaf extract et olea europaea extract:
These natural active ingredients are from olive and olive leaves. These are powerful antioxidants that protect against oxidative stress (pollution, sunlight,
etc …), which is a significant contributory factor in accelerated skin aging.
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).
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 shine up powder 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 very soon.
The metal containers the powders are 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 an iphone key!
he 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.
