Sublim'Soft is a base primer with a matt finish. For use as a makeup primer, it mattifies the complexion for long-lasting makeup application, whilst it can also be used alone. This amazing product smooths the complexion, minimises pores, mattifies oily areas such as T-zones and imparts a velvety softness to skin, thanks to its silica-rich bamboo hyrolate, macerate and bamboo powder.
This product works particularly well for those with oily t-zones to help keep shine at bay, and also for those wanting to conceal open pores or fine facial hairs that are accentuated by finishing powders. It is also ideal for mature customers who feel that finishing powders are ageing, and for those with dry skin for whom finishing powders can look 'cakey'. Its organic silica content helps maintain collagen and elastin in skin, which are key factors in maintaining a youthful complexion.
This product, as with all Zao products, is free from 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.
Organic bamboo leaves hydrosol: Derived from the distillation of bamboo leaves, it mattifies oily skin. Moisturising and soothing, it is also useful for dry and sensitive skin types. Thanks to its high content of silica, it leaves a soft and velvety touch to the skin.
Bamboo stem powder: A white substance extracted from the nodes of the bamboo. Thanks to its high content of silica, it remineralises, moisturises and regenerates your skin while reducing the shine of oily areas.
Organic bamboo rhizome macerate: As bamboo powder or bamboo leaves hydrosol, this material is extremely rich in organic silica, which is needed by skin to maintain elasticity and therefore youthful appearance.
Olive squalane: Extracted from olive oil, plant Squalane is a derivative of squalene which is a natural component of human sebum. It has excellent affinity with the skin due to its similarity to the skin's natural lipids, and its emollient properties make it an ideal active ingredient. It strengthens the skin lipid barrier, softens the skin and protects it from dehydration.
Instructions for use: Use the pump action to deliver the correct amount for application and then apply evenly from the centre to the outside of the face and on the neck, using either Zao's Foundation Brush 711 or your fingertips.
Zao Beauty tip: The Sublim'Soft can be used alone or under the foundation to facilitate easy application and achieve longer-lasting makeup, but it's starring quality is that you can use it to replace mattifying powder. Simply apply before foundation to achieve a naturally matt look without the need for finishing powder. Your skin looks flawless and matt, yet completely natural. You can also use over foundation: simply pump some product into your hands and apply to key shine-prone areas of your face, blending in with fingertips.
