This light balm has a velvety texture that melts on your lips while delivering a natural glossy effect. Its active ingredients moisturise your lips intensely to give them elasticity and a natural shine, and if used regularly, it will protect against the harsh elements of cold, wind and sun, as well as pollution. This newly reformulated product is now vegan, using instead organic cocoa butter, organic carnauba wax and organic castor oil as an effective vegan replacement to beeswax. It has now also become refillable to reduce waste; this is the refill for the bamboo packaged product.
Organic cocoa butter (Theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter): Cocoa butter protects the skin from external factors such as the elements and pollution. It helps to maintain hydration because it slows down the water loss by forming a barrier on the surface of the epidermis. It has been used for centuries in Africa as a preventative care to bring suppleness to the skin and also in curative care against skin drying out.
Organic carnauba wax (Copernicia cerifera (carnauba) wax): Secreted by the leaves of a palm tree from Brazil, this wax is a film agent that protects the skin by producing a continuous film that also fixes makeup to skin.
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.
Instructions for use: Applied in the evening, liquid lip balm improves hydration, leaving lips soft and velvety until the morning. Or use daily to ensure your lips are nourished and soft.
ZAO beauty tip: If your lips are dry or even painful, apply a thick layer every night and several times a day to enhance softness and moisture of your lips.
