I'm a South Asian performing artist but also sell these products as I fell in love with them when I was in Brazil as an artist-in-residence. They are all natural and I loved the ethos behind the company. Please find below a bit about the company and the products.
"Brazil has one of the largest and richest biodiversities on the planet: life, in all its diverse forms. In order to protect it, one must first understand that humanity is an integral part of nature, rather than a mere observer of its beauty. The extraction of its natural wealth must be managed in such a way that everyone - both current and future generations - may have the right to use these resources. If life began to evolve on Earth four billion years ago, then we too are indeed children of the Earth. This is our belief here at Natura. This is the source of our inspiration."
Natura Brasil is a beauty brand of Brazilian origin with a purpose and a conscience. Born of passion for cosmetics and relations, Natura is now present in seven Latin American countries and in Europe. In Brazil, they are the leader in the cosmetics industry market and 5th in the world.
Reason for Being: Bem Estar Bem. Translated literally from Portuguese this means well-being=being-well. It means that Natura strives, through its products and services, to help people enjoy better relationships with themselves (well-being), with others, with nature and the world around them (Being well).
There is a whole range of products for hands, hair, face, body, babies like shampoos, conditioners, body wash, lotions, scrubs, oils, masks, hand & foot creams for all skin & hair types made from Brazilian fruits from the rainforest such as Brazilian nut, cocoa, passion fruit, acai, buriti, andiroba, pitanga, murumuru, etc.
