Surya Brasil-- Vegan and Cruelty-free Hair and Skincare



I have to say, I am pretty damn excited to write this post and share this amazing company with you. Surya Brasil offers what I consider to be some of the best vegan, cruelty-free and natural products on the market and honestly some of my new favourite products.

Surya Brasil offers products that are made from sustainably harvested, non-GMO ingredients. They are vegan certified, gluten-free and never tested on animals. They do not contain parabens, petroleum, pesticides, propylene or butylene glycols, phthalates, sulfates, PEG’s, TEA, DEA or GMO, silicones, artificial dyes or fragrances. Which we all know in this day and age is hard to come by, even in the natural community.

They have been around for 20 years and sell their products in 40 countries internationally striving for sustainable and responsible beauty, succeeding on every level.

Surya Brasil offers a large range of beauty products including henna hair colour, hair care products, skincare including a line specifically for men and woman under their Sapien label, lip balm and much more.


I am simply honored to have been given the opportunity to use and review some products and share my thoughts with you. The lovely folks at Surya sent me several products and here are my honest opinions for each.


Sapien Women Body Scrub: I first have to say, I will probably repeat myself a lot because their products smell AMAZING!! Being someone who almost exclusively uses products that are "natural" or claim to be so, I am extremely sensitive to chemical smells, always have been but even more so now that I don't use many chemicals. The scents from these products are clearly from natural sources and I love that. It reminds me of Hawaii or a rainforest and that made me instantly fall in love with the products. This scrub is incredible. It leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. It is gentle on the skin, no worries about scratching or tearing the skin like some traditional scrubs have done to me in the past. Perfect for the cold winter weather we are having right now.

98.80% of the total ingredients are from natural origin

Sapien Women Shave Gel: Confession: I don't shave that much anymore, mostly due to the fact that I always cut my skin or get really bad razor burn but I made an exception because I wanted to give a full review of all the products given to me. I shaved for the first time in a couple months last night and it's honestly the first time I haven't had either razor burn or painful nicks on my skin. Again, the smell of their shave gel is amazing and the gel itself made my skin feel incredibly smooth and nourished. I always moisturize after shaving but I really had no need to with this product.

Sapien Woman Body Moisturizer: Gonna say it again, it SMELLS AMAZING!!! Not too surprising, it made my skin soft, non-oily and left it feeling great. A little goes along way too.

Lip Balm: I am a self-proclaimed lip balm junkie, as I am sure most of you know. Surya Brasil actually found me through my lip balm review post. I had originally tried the cinnamon flavour but I have a sensitivity to cinnamon so didn't overly enjoy it so now I have got to try all their other flavors which include: Strawberry & Buriti, Chocolate, Acai Berry and Chocolate & Mint. I love all of them. They smell amazing and work really well on my dry, chapped lips. Non-oily as well.
