New York, New York (April 24, 2007) Surya Brasil, known for its premium natural hair coloring and hair treatment formulas sold around the world, announced today that all of the products in their Amazonia Preciosa line have been awarded organic certification through Ecocert (www.ecocert.com), a prestigious organic certifier from Europe. Products exceeded all minimum requirements and will now bear the Ecocert logo on their packaging. For this certification, Ecocert requires that a minimum of 10% of the composition of a cosmetic must be organic ingredients and that 95% of all the plant ingredients be organic.
Amazonia Preciosa is an all natural, “upper end” range of hair and body care products from Brazil with all the glamour and beauty of the Amazon Forest. The line does not contain sulfates, artificial dyes, artificial fragrance, parabens, PVP, silicone, DEA, phthalates, GMOs or propylene glycol. The Amazonia Preciosa hair products are vegan certified and the body care products are in the process of certification.
Each of the products in the Amazonia Preciosa line contain essential oil from the bark of the Preciosa tree that provides a unique experience that doesn’t occur with other plants in nature: its natural fragrance is incapable of being reproduced even in the most sophisticated laboratories. This Preciosa oil is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council to ensure environmental responsibility. According to President Clelia Angelon, “We have taken great strides to ensure that all plants are wild crafted with environmental sensitivity protecting important forest ecology. In addition, the product packaging is either recyclable or biodegradable.” Bottles are made of PET plastic and the “award-winning” pots for the face products are 100% biodegradable flasks with no chemical ingredients in their composition that naturally degrade over 8 months after being discarded.
Surya Brasil’s Amazonia Preciosa line includes shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, liquid hand soap, shower gel, facial toner, hands and body lotion, leg and foot balm, massage oil, facial mask with clay, facial moisturizer and clay mask.
