L’Oréal Brasil strengthens cooperation with suppliers of cupuaçu

L’Oréal Brasil aims to develop new cosmetic ingredients from sustainable local resources. A team from the company’s Research and Innovation division visited cupuaçu plantations in Pará with an initial meeting with the Association of Rural Producers and Familial Agriculture of the Santa Luzia Community (Associação de Produtores e Produtoras Rurais da Agricultura familiar da Comunidade Santa Luzia - APRAFAMTA). Farmers of the Association are responsible for the production of cupuaçu butter.

"We made an investment in the pulp mill of the Association to adapt the facilities to Sanitary Surveillance requirements and ensure its reopening, since, today, it is closed. In this way, the community will be able to diversify its income sources, and also to sell cupuaçu pulp at a large scale as well as other fruits that are produced locally," explained Fabiana Munhoz, Advanced Research Manager.

L’Oréal’s research team also visited the facilities of Symrise, an international supplier of cosmetic raw materials and fragrances. The company recently made two major investments in Brazil: the opening of a production facility in Pará for vegetable oils, butters and extracts, where the company benefits from the rich Brazilian biodiversity. Symrise also created in São Paulo, a global hair care centre, to increase its knowledge about the hair diversity existing in Brazil and the demand of local consumers. "We talked about possible future partnerships for the development of innovative, efficient and sustainable new cosmetic ingredients," said Fabiana.
