An everyday essential compact blush that is vegan friendly and suitable for sensitive skin. I do like a sweep of blush across the cheeks, and this shade is really flattering and natural-looking. The blusher is made from 100% natural ingredients, and is free from the talc and synthetic preservatives typically found in high street alternatives.

About Zao Zao are a French brand co-founded by three nature-loving friends who are focussed on developing a range of cosmetic products with a drastically reduced impact on the environment. Much of their range is refillable (hopefully nail polish will follow) and they use natural and certified organic ingredients across their range, often at 100%.
Bamboo is a huge feature in both the packaging and the ingredients, used for its sustainability as a crop and huge versatility. In the polish, silica from bamboo is used to give it strength so that the polish doesn't chip as easily as other eco nail polish.
The products are mainly made in Italy (with some made in France).
Packaging and End of Life The blush itself comes in a bamboo case and bamboo pouch. Re-purpose the pouch for small gifts, or for re-usable make-up wipes. Alternatively, place in fabric recycling.
