Zao’s Volume & Sheathing Mascara delivers colour and volume to your eyelashes. Formulated without synthetic preservatives and with high quality raw materials, this mascara reduces the risk of redness and irritation to your eyes. Suitable for regular use and sensitive eyes. Our mascara is now refillable to reduce waste.
Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a bamboo pouch with drawstring, Zao makeup is both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.
A wand is included with all refills due to hygiene regulations, but please note that a lot of wildlife charities will take old mascara wands as they are extremely useful for removing things such as fly eggs and larva from the fur and feathers of animals.
Instructions for use: Start with the upper lashes, holding the brush horizontally close to the root, move up in a zigzag motion while you are looking down. Concentrate on the ends to enlarge the eye and on the centre to open up the eyes. Gently tap the eye lashes when applying mascara to the lower lashes, ensuring that you don?t overload them.
Zao beauty tip: Mascara is the key item in your beauty kit, just a touch of mascara can work wonders! Some tips for a quick and easy beauty routine: before you put on mascara, always make sure your eyelashes are dry and free of cream or oil, then dust them with powder. This preparation will ensure your mascara won”t smudge and will last even longer. Open the mascara gently and in one movement! Avoid pumping to keep the product on the brush, but make sure that you haven?t overloaded it. If so, gently remove any excess with a tissue and not at the opening of the bottle. If you have a few drops of mascara on your skin after you?ve applied it, wait until it is dry, then gently wipe it off with a cotton swab. If you are already wearing foundation, you can also dab a little on the cotton swab before removing the mascara to ensure your complexion remains even.

Co founder, David Reccole is very passionate about Asian countries, much of his inspiration coming from his travels to India, Vietnam and China.
Upon one of his travels he was visiting a Taiwanese friend who presented him with a bamboo mechanical pencil and a bamboo pen. A brainwave soon followed, if it is possible to make a pen surely the same concept can be used to create lipsticks and other packaging specifically for make up.
In 2012 David Reccole, and 2 of his friends, Philippe Donnat and Yvan Rouvier decided to develop an organic make up brand.
Taking their deep values, their love of nature and awareness of our consumption on the environment, Zao was born. The only make brand that is 100% natural and certified organic by Ecocert.
Bamboo was their first choice of material to use when it come to their brands packaging, a natural carbon storer with an exceptional growth rate, it allows Zao products to display a reduced carbon footprint.
Not satisfied with using bamboo for just their packaging they also incorporate formulas in the form of sap
powder, leaf hydrosol or bamboo rhizome macerate within certain Zao products.
Rich in silica, naturally present and produced in the body, it participates in the process of producing collagen, helping preserve the elasticity of skin tissue.
Whilst some packaging is not 100% plastic free, Zao make up may not be perfect but it is the next best thing on the UK market!
