Does Zuii use Bismuth Oxychloride in their products?
Zuii Organic do not believe this is an ingredient that should be used on your skin. Many conventional or mass produced makeup ranges use this ingredient as it makes the skin appear to have a ‘healthy’ sheen and helps stick makeup to your skin. The fact is that this is a bi product of lead and copper refining and is nearly identical to arsenic, one very toxic chemical which we will never use in our range.
Does Zuii contain Talc?
Zuii Organic does not contain Talc. In most conventional lines of makeup Talc is used as an anti-caking agent to improve the feel of the products. Despite being a soft mineral, talc itself is toxic and a known carcinogen. Zuii will never use Talc in any of our products.

Look for the V symbol on our colour charts for Carmine free/ Vegan friendly options.
