Zao create premium certified organic, 100% natural, vegan, cruelty free, sustainable and refillable makeup.
Zao makeup is owned by Cosm’Eika France and was co-founded in 2012 by four friends, David Reccole, Phillipe Donnat, Yvan Rouvier and Salima Macozzi Reccole. All four friends love nature and are passionate and conscious of the impact of consumption on the environment.
This is where the idea of Zao came from. The brand was created to align with the strong values of its owners where there was a passion for creating the first rechargeable makeup brand. It was important that the products were 100% natural and because of this they were also certified organic by Ecocert.

Charlotte Vøhtz was a pioneer for the organic skin care industry when she launched her beauty brand Green People back in 1997, but it was on turning 50 that she started to formulate her signature Age Defy+ by Cha Vohtz range, to address the needs of mature skin.

It may be difficult to believe, but we as consumers have the power to make a difference through the things we buy. So many nay-sayers always tell you that we will never produce less meat, but if less people buy meat then the demand decreases and it is no longer cost effective to produce meat on such a large scale.
This is just one example. The same goes for buying organic products. This includes organically grown food, clothing made from organically grown materials like cotton, and even beauty products which contain organically grown ingredients. Continue reading The Importance of Buying Organic
We have a handy guide to caring for dry skin, courtesy of our friends at Green People. For people with dry skin, sometimes using an everyday moisturiser isn’t enough, no matter how rich the ingredients are – I have personal experience with this, and know that caring for dry skin can be pretty time-consuming, and upsetting when nothing seems to work. One of my favourite brands, Green People were actually formed by founder Charlotte Vøhtz when her young daughter Sandra was battling skin allergies and eczema.

As humans we are inquisitive and resourceful creatures, when we need something and can’t find it, we’ll create it ourselves. That’s exactly what happened for Charlotte Vøht in 1994. Her daughter Sandra suffered multiple skin allergies along with eczema, and although Charlotte tried to find skin care products made with natural ingredients that would be gentle on her daughter’s skin, but it turns out most cosmetics found on the high street contained chemicals – they only needed to have less than 1% of natural or organic ingredients to be labelled ‘natural’.

Winter is upon us! The days are only going to get colder while the heating is on full blast in almost every building you step in to. If you’re like me than you’ve probably noticed a change in your complexion, maybe your skin is feeling a little drier than usual and looking duller – it’s probably due to the change in weather. Not only is the cold particularly harsh on your skin but the drastic change in climate going from outdoors to indoors doesn’t help either, and having the heating on inside really dries out the air and your skin.

Despite such a wide range of anti-ageing creams and serums available today, it’s increasingly difficult to find a suitable anti-ageing cosmetics range that is made with natural ingredients that care for your skin rather than coating it in potentially irritating chemicals. We all want natural, sustainable skin care that works just as well as those well known brands, especially skin care targeted to specific skin types.
