701 suits fair complexions with a neutral undertone
702 suits medium complexions with a warm undertone
703 suits medium complexions with a cool undertone
704 suits medium complexions with a neutral undertone
705 suits darker complexions with a warm undertone
706 suits dark complexions with a neutral undertone
710-712 are from the Ethnic Collection for super fair complexions:
710 suits super fair complexions with a warm undertone
711 suits super fair complexions with a neutral undertone. This shade can be used to tone down pink undertones.
713 suits those with fair complexions and yellow/golden undertones
714 suits those with medium complexions and yellow/golden 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.

ZAO Beauty Tip: choose a colour that matches your skin tone on face and neck without being too bright or too dark, to avoid the telltale ‘tidemark’ effect on the neck area. Find your skin tone and take into account whether you have warm, cool or neutral undertones to find your best match. Please e-mail us if you need some help in selecting the best colour for you. Apply the foundation from the centre to the outside of your face,blending into the neck area.

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 trans-cutaneous 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).

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.
