The unique Amazonian biodiversity offers a rich source of raw materials for companies within the fragrance and cosmetics industry. The sustainable use of these resources is becoming ever more important to them,” explains Symrise.

The Amazon Ecoparque, an industrial condominium, promotes and combines sustainability and the manufacturing of high-quality products. The project was launched by Brazilian cosmetics maker Natura who has opened the Amazon Ecoparque in Benevides in the state of Pará and inaugurated its soap factory on the site in March 2014. Enterprises from various market segments settle here to exchange resources and to come up with innovations. It will also benefit local communities and families.

Symrise will be the second company investing in this region. Within the facility, Symrise plans to explore, develop and manufacture high-quality products from indigenous resources. With its patented SymTrap® technology, Symrise will produce oils, butters and essential oils from raw materials such as the Brazil nut, murumuru, cupuaçú, cocoa, andiroba, buriti and passion fruit. They are suitable for use in cosmetic and fragrance products. In addition, Symrise will help to promote the economic and social development of communities and directly support more than 2,000 families from the Amazon region.

We were inspired by the compelling vision of the Ecoparque initiator and founder, Natura Cosmetics. They have started to realize a project which will allow companies to harvest the rich biodiversity of the Amazonas region in a sustainable way. At the same time, this will bring economic and social development to the region. This approach is very much in line with our strong commitment to sustainability as an embedded value in our business strategy and operating system,” said Achim Daub, Global President Scent & Care.
