FRENCH MANICURE, THE ECO WAY: Each nail polish is free from toxic ingredients and enriched in silica from bamboo oil, for a much more sustainable manicure. Their formula contains 76-80% of ingredients that come from natural products such as potatoes, manioc, corn and wheat to replace petrochemical solvents.
FREE FROM 10 HARMFUL INGREDIENTS: Most nail polishes are usually made with the following chemicals: toluene*, formaldehyde*, dibutyl phthalate*, formaldehyde resin, paraben, xylene*, camphor, rosin*, styrene and benzophenone. None of these in these!
NAIL POLISH THAT DOESN'T FLAKE OR CHIP EASILY: Organic nail varnishes that are water-based tend to chip and come off quickly, but Zao's formula makes them long-lasting without affecting your health.
VEGAN AND CRUELTY-FREE: No testing on animals, neither on the finished product nor on ingredients, not animal products used to make these amazing nail polishes. And they are also palm-oil free!
These fantastic Nail Polishes by Zao are the best ally for a truly eco-friendly manicure!
If you want to add colour and fun to your nails, but without all the chemicals and nasty ingredients usually found in commercially made nail polish, Zao has created a formula guaranteeing intense and long-lasting colours, easy application and sustainability at its very heart.

With over 10 years of experience in organic cosmetics and vision to provide natural formulas enriched with active organic ingredients and sustainable packaging, Zao was born. Inspired by a natural gift received from a Taiwanese friend (a pen and pencil made in bamboo material), the founder was inspired to use Bamboo for organic make-up.
The round shape of the Bamboo gift is the same as the make-up castings produced today. From this point, the brand was born using Bamboo both for casing and formulations. Among Asian philosophies, Zen Buddhism and Taoism both have a philosophy of respecting nature. Thus Zao is a combination of Zen and Tao. Zao has developed 100% natural formulas enriched with active organic ingredients to enhance your skin's natural beauty.
Certified organic by Ecocert, this brand is free from all toxic chemicals including parabens, instead using micronised silver as a preservative. Let yourself be seduced by luminous colours and textures combining comfort and long-lasting hold. An innovative product presented in a modern and botanical material: bamboo.
