Sun Protection: The BB Cream has a very well-balanced ratio of protection from potentially damaging UVA rays which can accelerate skin ageing and skin cancers, as well as from the UVB rays that are responsible for sunburn.The SPF contains NO nanoparticles or raw synthetic materials, instead deploying Karanja oil as an effective plant-based sunscreen due to its properties in providing natural protection against the sun.
The BB Cream has been tested by dermatologists for hydration. The BB Cream is formulated with a number of raw materials to create a hydrating and moisturising cream, the key ingredients include:
Fucogel: This active ingredient has both active and sensory properties, immediately soothing and moisturising skin with restructuring and anti-ageing properties. It helps to leave your skin feeling soft and supple.
Pheohydrane: This marine complex is ideal to instantly moisturise skin and prevent water loss. Its intense and rapid moisturising properties combines a micro-algae extract rich in NMF* boosting amino acids, marine sugars with second skin qualities and a remineralising seawater concentrate.
* NMF = Natural Moisturising Factors that enable hydration of the stratum corneum.
AQUAXYL™: Its "anti-dehydration shield" action is guaranteed by strengthening the synthesis of essential lipids and proteins involved in the organisation of the stratum corneum. It is an essential ingredient of skin hydration, boosting all the factors involved in skin hydration, leaving skin looking beautifully hydrated with reinforced horny layer. The presence of Organic Aloe Vera and Glycerin enhances hydration.
Organic Bamboo Extract: Its high concentration at 25% is used to leverage the high concentration of silica in bamboo, Zao's star ingredient. Silica stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin fibres, facilitating firmness, elasticity and retention of moisture levels.
This product, as with all Zao products, is free from talc and parabens (synthetic preservatives), using instead micronised silver as an effective and non-toxic preservative. Zao does not use nanoparticles in their products, with the micronised silver being larger than nanoparticle size, making Zao products safe and free from toxic chemical preservatives.

Zao uses bamboo to create their beautiful packaging and as an ingredient in their amazing cosmetics, this allows Zao products to display a reduced carbon footprint.
What does Zao stand for?
Based in Buddhist philosophy the name Zao is a creation of their most prominent expressions and beliefs based on the observation of nature. This is ZEN, peaceful and calm, and TAO, in harmony with the natural order. As an invitation to meditation, peace of mind and the search for harmony and authenticity following the example of nature, ZAO is a combination of these two names.
