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 as it is involved in the synthesis of collagen and elastin. Over time, our silica reserves 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.
- Silver (CI 77820) (micronised silver powder): 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 lip balm stick and pencils) contain micro-particles of pure silver (a natural preservative).
- Acacia senegal gum: Acacia gum or Arabic gum, derived from the acacia senegal tree, is used as a bonding agent which improves the mascara and eyeliner’s hold. Its wealth of polysaccharides and glycoproteins also makes it a real tightening and lifting cosmetic asset. In addition, acacia has softening, soothing and healing qualities for fragile mucous membranes, which helps prevent irritation when applying mascara.
- Silica (organic silica): The human body contains about seven grams of silica, far more than all other minerals including iron (and silica is the second component of the earth’s crust with 28% after oxygen with 47%). The essential quality of silica allows the body to efficiently absorb and assimilate the minerals and vitamins. The connective tissue of the human body (cell wall) is composed of collagen and elastin. However, these molecules need silica which is no more synthesised after twenty years old. An external input is needed especially for the skin. For this reason the organic silica is present in most of the products of the Zao range.
