Sapien, a new organic body care line for men by Surya Brasil, is specially formulated for male skin and hair. The line offers pure essential oils; gluten-free amaranth proteins and mild cleansing agents that are gentle enough for men with sensitive skin without losing any effectiveness.
The six formulas in the line include: A two-in-one shampoo/conditioner combination, which contains acerola and amaranth protein. The shower gel hydrates and cleanses the skin with nourishing fruit extracts such as acerola. The facial scrub exfoliates with green clay and acai grains; and does an excellent job of removing impurities while preventing oily skin. The Sapien shave cream lubricates the skin with rich cupuacu butter and macadamia nut oil. The after-shave cream invigorates with acai, cupuacu and aloe vera plus natural minerals. Finally, the styling gel offers medium hold without synthetic fixatives or PVP (polyvinylpyrrolidone).
“Concerns about persistent bioaccumulation of toxins in our environment have heightened our awareness about the chemicals we use in our personal care products,” says Clelia Angelon, President and Founder of the Surya Brasil brand, in a press release. “Because of this, we have not included synthetic fragrance, artificial color, GMOs, artificial preservatives, sulfates, phthalates, silicone or petroleum by-products.”
Using ethically harvested plants and fruits from the Amazon, these skin and hair care products contain all the elements necessary to achieve healthy, radiant hair and a glowing complexion in an easy, practical way. The subtle woody aroma is derived from a special blend of essential oils including cedarwood, lemon, bergamot and clove. Products range in price from $11 for the styling gel up to $22 for the shower gel.
