MineralSilk4

 

Product description:


Mineral Silk is a true powder foundation. What makes it original is its ease of use. And because it is applied on top of a personal choice of moisturiser, it is suitable for all skin types. This matt foundation is used with the kabuki brush and is talc-free, as are all our powders.


Coverage: light

 

Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a cotton pouch with a 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:

 

Use moisturiser before applying Mineral Silk. Pour some powder through the sieve into the lid of the bamboo pot. Then apply light pressure while turning the kabuki brush on the powder to fill the bristles. Lightly tap the kabuki to remove excess powder before applying to the face in a circular motion.

ZAO Beauty tip: Just like the compact powders, Mineral Silk also helps set the make-up for a stronger hold. To enhance your complexion, after applying your tone, use a two tones darker Mineral Silk as blush.

Shades:

ZAO MINSILK WebRange

500 Mineral Foundation Powder is invisible, making your skin look flawless without adding any shade to it.

501 is a yellow-based Mineral Foundation Powder that suits those with fair complexions and neutral or yellow undertones to skin.

502 suits those with a fair complexion and cool undertones.

503 suits those with a medium complexion and warm undertones.

504 suits those with a medium complexion and neutral undertones.

505 suits those with darker complexions and a neutral or cool undertone.

506 suits those with darker complexions and a warm undertone.

507 is part of ZAO's Ethnic Collection for super fair skin, suiting those with a yellow-based undertone.

508 is also part of ZAO's Ethnic Collection for super fair skin, suiting those with cool, ivory pink-based undertones.


If you suit colours like gold, copper, bronze, orange-reds and earthy tones, then your skin is likely to have peach, yellow or golden undertones and so would suit a warm-toned foundation.


If you suit colours like magenta, silver, grey, blue-red or jewel tones, then your skin is likely to have cool undertones with pink, red or blue undertones and so would suit a cool-toned or neutral foundation.If you prefer to disguise pink tones to your skin, then a neutral-toned foundation would achieve that.


If you look good in any of these colours, then your skin is likely to have neutral/mixed undertones. If unsure, check the veins on your arms, as those with cool-toned complexions have blue or purple veins, whilst those with warm complexions tend to have green veins, and if you cannot decide, then you most likely have neutral undertones.     

 

Focus on some ingredients:


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.

Oryza sativa (rice) powder (organic rice powder):

Softens and matifies

 

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).  



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%). An essential quality of silica is that it 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 from an age of about twenty. An external supply is needed especially for the skin. For this reason, most of the products in the ZAO range contain organic silica.
