Henna: is very popular in India and there is evidence from Egypt that henna was regularly used to color hair five thousand years ago, and may have been used in Jericho as early as eight thousand years ago. Henna was used to keep hair healthy and to color gray hair. Henna is a natural herbal powder which is not only used for coloring the hair, but also helps to prevent dandruff and scalp itching. It acts as a great conditioner. The lawsone molecule penetrates the hair shaft, binding with the keratin in the hair. This makes hair stronger as it coats the hair and fills in rough spots on a frayed cuticle. This adds a second layer of strength, but it does not lock out moisture. One of the main reasons to choose Surya Brasil's healthy henna over traditional color is that henna is non-toxic. Chemical dyes are not only very damaging to hair, they can also cause scalp burns, allergic reactions, and recently studies have linked long term use to cancer.
Acácia Concinna: Commonly known as Shikakai, Acacia Concinna is a shrub native to the warm, plains of central and south India. Shikakai means "fruit for hair" and is traditionally used as a natural shampoo in India for centuries. With a mild, low pH, Acacia helps to soften hair, adds manageability and incredible shine. Surya Brasil Henna Powders contain Acacia.
Terminalia Belerica: An important botanical herb that is used for all types of internal and external ailments throughout the Asian continent for centuries. With anti-inflammatory properties, Terminalia Belerica has the ability to prevent premature greying and can be found in our 100% natural Henna Powders.
Amla: On an interesting note, in India, Amla fruit is used in making pickles, chutneys, jams and murabbas as well as a healthy juice beverage in Ayurvedic practice. Surya Brasil has found Amla adds shine and softness and is a rich source of vitamin C and fatty acids to help nourish the hair with Surya Brasil's Henna Creams and Henna Powders.
Innovation, Sustainability and Social Responsibility
Surya Brasil has spent the last 20 years unearthing the therapeutic performance of exotic botanical ingredients like buriti, murumuru and cupuaçu from the Amazon and combining them with ancient plants and herbs like 'Henna' (Lawsonia inermis) a flowering plant and Brahmi, a scalp soothing botanical from India to create the company’s best selling natural henna color formulations, hair care and skincare.
Surya Brasil is redefining what it means to be a successful business. Surya Solidarity the brand’s social division focuses on animal protection, environmental preservation, educational transformation & human rights. It is no longer okay to reap profits and not give back more than you take from society and the planet.
Surya Solidarity began sponsoring Construindo Talentos, (Building Talents) in 2009. The independent project, funded in entirety by the brand and initiated by co-founder, Wanda Malhotra, teaches arts, crafts, gardening, and vegan baking to children and adolescents ages 11-17 who live in foster care at Marly Cury. "We are teaching the children how to work in groups, with respect and unity. We want to help them realize their potential so that they can become professionals in the future and support themselves honestly and with dignity while becoming responsible adults,” explains Wanda Malhotra.
Wanda Malhotra, who believes that one of the most serious problems in Brazil, especially in big cities such as São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, is the violence experienced through crime and murder. She believes that the solution is to treat the root of the problem, that is, what causes the violence in thwe community, rather than just trying to control it.
Recently Clelia, who plays the drums and keyboard began visiting the Marly Cury foster home in São Paulo on Saturdays. She took these visits to a whole new level when she asked her employees and friends to come with her to start a music band with the children. They now practice at a recording studio every week and are beginning to make beautiful music together.
In 2014 Surya Brasil’s production facility in Sao Paulo recently passed the ISO 22716:2007 Guidelines on Good Manufacturing Practices while also celebrating the 2014 bill to prohibit cosmetics testing on animals in the State of Sao Paulo. Surya Brasil has always been a cruelty-free brand, never testing on animals or using animal-ingredients in their products.
The Zero Waste project aims to reduce waste, losses and damages within the production chain Surya Brazil.
Surya brasil wants to raise awareness and sensitize employees, customers and partners the importance in changing attitudes and habits of consumption, minimize waste generation, combat waste in all areas, to encourage the reuse of materials where possible and, lastly, the intended way correct for recycling.
The survival of the planet depends on simple actions that can be easily incorporated into the daily lives of individuals and businesses, and that will be really different if adopted by a large number of people.
