Surya Brasil Launches New Line in Green Plastic

May 2, 2014

BRAZIL: Surya Brasil, a leading brand of natural, vegan and organic cosmetics, is launching four new products in its Sapien Women’s line. With the concept “Detox your Beauty,” the line offers more sustainable products and uses packaging made from Braskem’s Green Plastic, which is made from ethylene derived from sugarcane ethanol and captures carbon dioxide during its production process.

To help consumers recognize the green plastic, Braskem created the “I’m green” seal, which guarantees the renewable origin of the packaging.

The Sapien Women product line was developed for daily use and includes shampoo, conditioner, leave-in combing cream and split end repair cream, all of which feature fragrances made from natural coconut and mango extracts.

“Natural vegan and organic cosmetics have a deep moisturizing effect on the hair and skin and provide real and long-lasting results. It’s still an unprecedented alternative in Brazil and is ideal for women who are conscious of their beauty and well-being as well as of environmental conservation,” explained Clélia Angelon, director and founder of Surya Brasil.
