Valentine’s Day is here, and I encourage you to gift yourself with the beauty of fabulous skin…
NaturaBrasil was introduced in 1969 with the opening of a single store on the famous Oscar Freire shopping street in São Paolo. From those humble roots, they have grown into Brazil’s largest single beauty brandand are a major force in beauty throughout Latin America. This is a company that gives back, offers vegan products as well as products made with Acai, Andiroba, Cacau, Castanha, Cumaru, Copaíba, Maracujá, Murumuru, Patauá, Pitanga and Ucuuba.
At NaturaBrasil, their vision is linked to the belief that we are increasingly moving to a more conscious and responsible world, where instant gratification and excessive consumption will progressively disappear to the benefit of more reasoned purchasing choices, taking more responsibilities for ourselves, our communities and the wider planet.
Their link with various communities in the Amazon is more than skin deep. NaturaBrasil does not go through ia middle-man. They have been working with these families for several years. Their social mission is to create sustainable development for the region that will benefit its inhabitants and conserve the forest. These initiatives are focused on socio-biodiversity.
By valuing traditional knowledge and local culture, they aim to develop knowledge and innovation in the Amazon for the Amazon. Their Eco-Park site near the Amazon Delta in Benevides includes both manufacturing and research, and NaturaBrasil’s goal is to stimulate the creation not only of increased local production, but also of social Innovation and education.
“Our mission is to create sustainable development for the region that will benefit its inhabitants and conserve the forest. These initiatives are focused on socio-biodiversity.”
Brazilian beauty and more specifically Natura’s vision of Brazilian beauty is linked to the development of cosmetics as promoters of well-being, what they call Bem-Estar-Bem. NaturaBrasil wants their customers to feel good about themselves, experience well-being through their products, but also encourage gratifying relationships with others, and with nature. It’s a deeply felt sense of purpose that drives us all.
As Brazil’s #1 beauty brand, they are proud to be known not only for their innovative beauty products, but also for their commitment to transparency, sustainability and well-being (what they call “bem estar bem”). They are driven by their beliefs that the world is inter-connected and that business can be a force for good.
NaturaBrasil works with communities in the Amazon to develop the best natural ingredients for skin and hair – and to help keep the Amazon forest standing for generations to come.
Says NaturaBrasil, “Our mission is to create sustainable development for the region that will benefit its inhabitants and conserve the forest. These initiatives are focused on socio-biodiversity.”
