Product description:

 

The Light Complexion Base is an effective foundation base and protective day cream that helps to set and stabilise makeup so that it lasts throughout the day. With a delicate tropical scent, the moisturiser contains sweet almond oil, jojoba and shea butter to moisturise. It also contains organic silica in the organic bamboo hydrating base, which helps maintain collagen and elastin in skin, which are key factors in maintaining a youthful skin appearance.

 

Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a cotton pouch with drawstring, ZAO makeup is both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.


This product, as with all Zao products, is free from parabens (synthetic preservatives), using instead 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 toxic preservatives.



Instructions for use:

Apply with fingers or Zao's Natural Rubber Sponge (sold separately under 'accessories').

Focus on some ingredients:

 

Phyllostachys Nigra Extract* (organic bamboo leaves hydrosol):

Regenerates epidermis

Product of the distillation of bamboo leaves, 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 by synthesising collagen and elastin. Over time, our silica reserve diminishes, causing demineralisation and loss of skin elasticity. It is therefore necessary to regularly replenish the skin with transcutaneous supplies. For this reason, most of the products in the ZAO range contain organic silica.

Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil* (organic sweet
almond oil):

Nourishes, softens and moisturises

Very soft and very pleasant to apply, it makes the skin smooth and leaves a velvety touch. Emollient, it nourishes and protects skin from drying out. It is softening and invigorating, thereby activating the skin's repair function; by soothing and calming, it reduces itching and irritation. 

 

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 without the use of parabens. 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 does not use nanoparticles in its products, and Ecocert organic certification is only awarded to products that do not use nanoparticles.
