Zao at Strictly Sustainable

Lovers of nature and aware of the impact of our consumption on the environment, Zao Make-Up was co-founded in 2012 by four friends who chose to develop a brand of organic makeup in accordance with their deep values. They gave birth to Zao Make-Up, the first rechargeable make-up brand, 100% natural and certified organic by Ecocert.

The inspiration came from Asian countries for which one of the founders, David Reccole has always been passionate about. The idea was born from a Taiwanese friend who one day offered him a box containing a mechanical pencil and a bamboo pen. If it is possible to make a pen, it is conceivable to create lipsticks and other bamboo makeup packaging. 


All trees are carbon storers but bamboo’s exceptional growth rate makes it a carbon capture champion during its life-cycle. It allows Zao products to display a reduced carbon footprint. Bamboo is also incorporated into formulas in the form of sap powder, leaf hydrosol or bamboo rhizome macerate. This plant is rich in organic silica, an element naturally present in our body and that which participates in the process of producing collagen, which preserves the elasticity of tissues.  Bamboo is the distinction and identity of Zao Make-Up.

Choose from our selection of  Zao Make-Up's high quality natural mascaras, lipsticks, foundations, eyeliners, blushes and nail varnishes.
