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 diminish, 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 moisturizes it is very soft, very pleasant to apply, 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 (CI 77820) (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 lip balm stick and pencils) contain micro-particles of pure silver (a natural preservative).
