Organic plastic free compact powder for a great make-up base
If you want to avoid shine on your face, go for the powder compact. It sets, mattifies and balances the complexion for a smooth and silky finish.
It provides a uniform and shineless complexion thanks to micronized bamboo powder rich in silica. It is suitable for all skin types except mature skin (for which we recommend Mineral Silk).
Note that all of Zao's powders are free from talc and nanoparticles.
This vegan, compact powder comes in a beautiful bamboo case, and attractively presented in a bamboo pouch with drawstring. What's more, it's REFILLABLE! Keep the bamboo case for life, and buy the refills (in card). You can also switch your shade whenever you like keeping the same case 💚
Bamboo on the outside: bamboo on the inside! Organic bamboo powder (ingredient) is a white substance extracted from the joints of bamboo. Thanks to its high silica content, it remineralises, hydrates and participates in the regeneration of your skin, while reducing the shine of combination and oily skin.
This Compact powder also contains Organic Corn Starch, to allow a better adhesion of the powder to the skin, Organic Macadamia Oil, for restructuring, nourishing, protecting and soothing the skin and Organic Cocoa Butter to help maintain hydration by slowing the loss of water by forming a barrier on the surface of the epidermis. It has been used for centuries in Africa as a preventative care to provide suppleness to the skin and also in curative care against dryness.
Shade 301 is invisible and suits fair complexions for whom added colour looks unnatural.
Shade 303 suits those with medium complexions and neutral undertones.
Shade 306 - new for summer 2021
Instructions for use: For a matt effect, apply the compact powder with the Zao Face Brush. To cover problem areas, use a sponge to apply the compact powder. In both cases, always choose the same shade to your skin tone and use the product immediately after moisturising. To perfect your complexion over foundation, apply compact powder by choosing a tone lighter your skin tone. For a natural look, use a powder brush; for a 'babydoll' effect, use the sponge.
