Organic BB Cream
The BB Cream is a 5 in 1 treatment for perfect skin. Featuring a lightweight texture, the BB Cream offers a light coverage for perfect and natural skin. With a natural plant-derived SPF15, the BB Cream is an amazing 5 in 1 product with the following benefits:
Moisturises skin with targeted raw materials
Perfecting the complexion, blurring imperfections and redness
Revives complexion for ultimate radiance
Offers SPF15 protection from UVA and UVB
Sun Protection: The BB Cream has a very well-balanced ratio of protection from potentially damaging UVA rays which can accelerate skin ageing, as well as from the UVB rays that are responsible for sunburn and skin cancer.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.
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.
The BB Cream has been tested by dermatologists for hydration. Hydration is achieved by the use of various raw materials as follows:
Fucogel: This active ingredient has both active and sensory properties, immediately soothing and moisturising skin with restructuring and anti-ageing properties. It leaves 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.
Instructions for use:
Apply a thin layer to bare or hydrated skin. Start by applying a small amount of the BB Cream to the back of your hand, using your fingertips to warm it up.
