To structure and define the shape of your face, use a blush brush to apply the mineral cooked powder to the contours of your face: from the top of the forehead along the hairline, down and along the lower line of your cheekbones, and finishing along the underside of the jaws. The idea is to draw a “3” on each side of your face. Finalise the look by applying the powder on the nose for a long nose, or on the sides of the nose for a wide nose. With this radiant, structured powder look, you can enjoy a summery glow all year round. Adjust the tone to match the season and occasion.
ZAO Beauty tip: Mineral Cooked Powder is designed to shape your face rather than for complete coverage which would harden features.
ZAO beauty tip 2: Lighter than others cooked powders of the range, the 346 can be used in different ways, depending on the types of skin:
For combination to oily skin, it is used as a classic bronzing powder, it sculpts, structures and warms the face. Ideally applied with the Zao face brush by making a kind of 3 inverted on each side of the face.
For tired complexion, it can be used to advantageously replace the foundation. It warms and matifies your complexion instantly. For a discrete distribution use the Zao kabuki brush to apply or use the powder puff for more intense coverage.
For lighter skin tones, it is best used as blush on the cheekbones to brighten the complexion. Use a Blush brush for the best effect.
Generally speaking, it may also be used to ‘retouch’ throughout the day.
Bamboo casing: Combining traditional craftsmanship and modern design, the painted bamboo case emanates sophistication and originality. It is protected by a cotton pouch like a jewel. This beautiful presentation along with the playful refills even makes the ZAO product range a perfect gift.
Please note the refills are packaged in plastic. Zao are currently working on a plastic free refill.
Update May 2021 – The refills are starting to be packaged in a cardboard envelope. We don’t have these available for all shades yet, so if you want to ensure you don’t get a plastic one please contact us prior to purchasing to confirm what packaging its in.
Focus on some ingredients:
Bambusa arundinacea stem powder (micronised bamboo stem powder): 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 silica reserves diminish, causing demineralisation and loss of skin elasticity. It is therefore necessary to regularly replenish the skin with transcutaneous supplies.
Squalene: This is a clear and liquid oil obtained by refining olive oil. It has a great affinity with the skin as squalene is a major component of human sebum and hydrolipidic film. With its great spreading properties and the ability to penetrate the skin, it prevents dryness and restores suppleness and flexibility.
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).
Acanthopanax senticosus (eleuthero) root extract (Siberian ginseng root extract): Siberian ginseng is an “adaptogen”, a plant that increases the body’s ability to adapt to different stresses regardless of their origins. Adaptogenic plants enhance the strength and vitality of the body, stimulate natural defences and provide energy and feelings of well-being. A wide range of health benefits are attributed to the use of Siberian ginseng. Interestingly, most studies on this ingredient are written in Russian or Korean. For cosmetic uses, particularly its anti-inflammatory and immunogenic properties have attracted interest.
Silica (organic silica): 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.

For every Greener Beauty customer order we plant one tree. This is part of our ongoing effort to lower our carbon footprint and build a better world. We work with an American Charity called Eden Reforestation who plant trees globally where they are most needed. They hire, train and employ local people at a fair wage who then plant trees native to their land and protect the seedlings and eventually the forests. As a result of their careful nurturing they have an 80% seedling survival rate. This gives the local people a consistent income enabling them to provide for their families, and as the reforestation effort goes on, healthy forests emerge and the negative effects of deforestation disappear. Since Eden Reforestation began over 250 million trees have been planted around the world in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Nepal, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique. To further negate the carbon footprint of Greener Beauty HQ we also plant 15 trees a month per member of staff. Always ethical. Always vegan. Always Greener Beauty.
