Surya Brasil Now In Canada
A little while back I was sent some goodies from the natural brand Surya Brasil. With the World Cup on and all the worlds eyes on Brazil I thought what better time then now to talk about it.party certifications (and man they have a lot of them, PETA, ECOCERT, Vegan.org, transfairusa.org, and many more).
Below is a list of all the things you won't find in their products:
- NO sulfates
- NO parabens
- NO BHT
- NO EDTA
- NO synthetic fragrance
- NO mineral oil
- NO GMOs
- NO phthalates
- NO alcohol
- NO silicon
Sapien Women Shower Gel - This shower gel is sulphate free and contains aloe vera and vitamin E. It lathers extremely well and cleans just as well. My skin feels soft and clean, not stripped and dry after using it.
Sapien Women Body Scrub - Filled with natural exfoliants from coconut bark and organic buriti. It is a creamy exfoliant that works well at making my skin feel fresh and smooth without being wrought. I personally like applying to my dry skin before getting into the shower for a better scuffing experience.
Sapien Women Facial Scrub - This scrub is made with the same coconut bark and organic buriti to help remove dry skin and impurities, yet it is soft and gentle enough for your face.
Now I was also sent some hair, face and body products from their other lines.
Color Fixation Conditioner - This conditioner is intended for colour treated hair, hey I have colour treated hair. Made with moisturizing botanical ingredients to restore brilliance and vitality to damaged and colored hair. So what did I think? meh. Once again silicones are definitely what makes conditioners make your hair feel smooth and silky, without them I just don't feel that same level of satisfaction when conditioning. I guess I am just not truly a natural girl when it comes to hair care.
Amazônia Perciosa Hand And Body Lotion - This lotion is slightly thinner than the Sapien Women line but smells fantastic. Made with macadamia seed oil, uccuba nut butter and cupuacu butter it is intense in what it does deliver and how well it does it.
Lip Balms - If you're a strict vegan you probably find it hard to find a good lip balm that is really vegan (no bees wax) and maybe you want no parabens and no paraffin wax…well this might just be the lip balm for you. I personally love the cinnamon version and the mint chocolate (I'm a mint chocolate fiend).
Oveall I really like Surya Brasil, they are eco conscious, fair trade, and animal friendly, plus they back them selves up. While their hair care didn't wow me I am sure those who are looking for silicone free products actually will.
Can can pick up Suray Brasil at Whole Foods, Well.ca and many other great health food stores across Canada. They have a store locator on their site (link here)
