Do Like the Brazilians Do (Surya Brasil)

No I’m not talking soccer here! A while back I was introduced to Surya Brasil Sapien Women line. For those of you that are vegan it may be hard for you to find many body care lines that suit your lifestyle.

Surya-Brasil-Sapien-group, vegan skincare, eco-friendly


We all know how beautiful Brazilian women are right? And they take beauty and skincare SERIOUSLY.

The Sapien Women line is a luxurious one and like all Surya Brasil products boasts many certifications:

  • Ecocert
  • Certified Vegan
  • PETA
  • FSC Certification (Forest Stewartship Council)
  • Cosmebio
  • Fair Trade Certified

plus Surya Brasil is a member of the Brazilian Trade Association for Natural Products, The Compact for Safe Cosmetics and Organic Trade Association. Their packaging is either recyclable or biodegradable.

I received 5 products from the Surya Brasil Sapien Womens line which will ensure your whole skin care routine is looked after.

 Facial Scrub ($16.99): natural ingredients like coconut bark and organic buriti (a Brazilian fruit) are the exfoliants in this product. Safe for all skin types this scrub will bring back the glow to your face.

Body scrub ($37.59): with similar ingredients as the facial scrub, this scrub is great in the shower. I think it contains more coconut bark as there are more exfolianting particles for tougher body skin and it is also slighter darker in colour. The scrub helps to increase circulation and get rid of dead cells. I’m pretty sure this is the secret to the beautiful skin tone Brazilian woman are known for!

Shave Gel ($20.39): containing natural ingredients like Cupacu butter macadamia oil and vitamin E to provide slip and protection, this shave gel is safe to use on all your body parts include the face and bikini line. Aloe Vera juice will also help soothe. If you’re used to traditional shaving creams or gels this may take some getting used to.

Shower Gel ($29.69): perfect for daily use and when you don’t feel the need to exfoliate; this shower gel cleanses and provides deep hydration.

Body Moisturizer ($26.39): This lightweight but potent moisturizer absorbs quickly and will leave your skin hydrated and protected all day.

None of the Surya Brasil Sapien Women products above contain synthetic fragrance but they all smell INCREDIBLE! Actually they all smell exactly like one another so they are great for layering with each other. It’s hard to describe the smell…it’s fruity but really sophisticated and luxurious too – so I don’t feel like I smell like a teenager 😉 These products are definitely pricier than mass market products but one visit to their site and you’ll see all the work that goes into creating this eco-friendly and vegan line.

Are you willing to spend more money on products that are vegan, eco-friendly and generally more responsible? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
