NaturaBrasil Cacau Body Scrub

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

NaturaBrasil, which is Brasil's number 1 beauty brand, works with communities in the Amazon to, "to develop the best natural ingredients for skin and hair – and to help keep the Amazon forest standing for generations to come." They engage in sustainable practices, and have created a whole beauty brand devoted to well-being. I have been using some of their bath & body, skincare and haircare products, which range from $9.00-$54.00, and their textures, aromas and efficacy make them such a joy to use. I absolutely love their Cacau Body Scrub ($25.00), and am currently on my second or third jar.

Cacau Body Scrub has a delectable aroma and leaves skin unbelievably soft, smooth and hydrated. This cruelty-free, and vegan, sugar scrub gently removed dead skin cells, and the lovely oils and shea butter leave skin soft and hydrated. The sugar particles dissolve on the skin, after it exfoliates, and the particles don't irritate my sometimes sensitive skin.
According to NaturaBrasil,

An indulgently pampering vegan scrub buffs away dry, dull spots for brighter, fresher, sexier skin from head to toe. Natural sugar/olive oil blend infused with indulgent cacau oil.

- A hydrating and revitalizing exfoliating scrub featuring Indulgent Cacau Butter from Brazil and pure sugar crystals.
- Natural ingredients work together to revitalize, condition, and moisturize skin.
- Gently—yet effectively—removes dry, rough skin.
- Moisturizes with skin-silkening olive oil.
- Skin is softened, smooth, and glowing after use.
- Vegan.

About NaturaBrasil,

NaturaBrasil is a natural and vegan beauty brand that works directly with communities in the Amazon rainforest (educating locals on best practices and business acumen) to sustainably source exotic Amazonian ingredients. Through this community program and many others, NaturaBrasil has saved over 635,000 acres of rainforest. With every purchase, a bit more of the rainforest can be preserved. Natura was recently named one of the 'Most Ethical Companies in the World' by Ethisphere Magazine and was honored with the United Nations Champions of the Earth Award. 

The brand is known not only for the quality of its beauty products, but also for its commitment to transparency, sustainability and the promotion of well-being (what Natura calls "bem estar bem"). What started in 1969 as a single store on the famous Oscar Freire shopping street in Sao Paulo has grown into Brazil’s largest single beauty brand and a major force in beauty throughout Latin America and continues to grow globally with the recent acquisitions of The Body Shop and Aesop.
Overall Assessment: This is a lovely body scrub, and definitely worth trying.
