Brazilian cosmetics

Natura products are created to generate pleasure and well-being. They awaken the senses and improve the relationship of people with themselves, with their bodies, with others, and with the world.

We offer products in several categories: bath, body care, face care, hair care, perfumes, and we use vegetable ingredients from the Brazilian biodiversity, harvested in partnership with local communities. Thanks to its commitment to sustainable development since its creation and its objective by 2020 to generate a positive environmental, social and economic impact, Natura has also become the world's largest certified B Corp company and the the first publicly traded company to receive this certification in December 2014. The Natura & co group also owns the Australian cosmetics manufacturer Aesop, with points of sale in Oceania, Asia, Europe and North America and, since June 2017, Natura & co also owns The Body Shop (formerly owned by L'Oréal group) .

For Natura, innovation is one of the cornerstones of the implementation of this sustainable development. In 2016 the company devoted 50 million euros to it and launched 255 products, reaching an innovation index (percentage of revenue from products launched in the last two years) of 54.3%.

Our engagements

Environmental engagements

For several years, the theme of waste reduction has become increasingly a major topic.
Between the development of bulk products offers in supermarkets, the gradual disappearance of plastic bags from trade or even the balcony compostors, everyone can in its own way help to reduce the global production of waste.
Natura has been committed to the environment for several decades.

Social commitments

When founding Natura, Luiz Seabra wished to reconcile his passion for cosmetics and human relationships, so that along with the business operation a more human, stronger and lasting dimension could also grow.
His ideal: to improve the world a little more every day, offering everyone the opportunity to feel better with himself and with his entourage, the Bem estar Bem.
Building a better world consists also to give everyone the opportunity to be part of it, to contribute to a new future, and that is why education has such an important role for Natura.

Economical engagement

Natura is the 5th largest direct sales company in the world.
As such, we offer high quality cosmetic products, always more innovative, promoting the well-being and awakening of the senses.
Our goal is to generate value through the integration of 3 pillars : economic, societal and environmental. The Amazônia programme is an example of how it works and our daily actions are guided by this need of balancing these 3 pillars.
