SPA Around the World – Beleza do brasil
Samba for your Skin
The beauty of Brazilian women is legendary. It is almost as if they absorb the breathtaking beauty of the nature that surrounds them and convert it into an exotic, magnetic glow that exudes pure joie de vivre. It was this vivacity and beauty that inspired BABOR to create Beleza do brasil, a body care range that encapsulates the vitality, freshness and energy of the Amazon. For a long time, the secret of the beauty of Brazilian women remained locked away in the rainforest. BABOR researchers embarked on a journey of discovery: they listened to the indigenous peoples, learned their treatment rituals and stumbled upon exceptional medicinal plants that do more than simply enhance beauty. The Amazonian Indians even attribute magical, beguiling powers to them.
The cumaru tree is the “medicine man” of the rainforest and has long been valued as a medicinal plant. Its seeds smell of vanilla and can be used to treat snakebites. They are even claimed to possess magical powers and to have a hypnotizing and erotic effect. It has been scientifically proved, however, that the seeds have a very high content of omega fatty acids, which are essential for the skin. The oil obtained from them supports the skin’s natural protective functions and makes skin strong and resilient. Priprioca is a reed-like aquatic plant with tiny blossoms whose fragrance tantalizes the senses. It only grows in the Brazilian rainforest. The extract of the plant’s root contains essential oil and countless anti-oxidants, which protect the skin against free radicals. An extract of the seeds of the araucaria tree, or Brazilian pine, stimulates skin functions. The seeds are rich in minerals, proteins and vitamins and, according to the old tradition, are used to ward off fatigue and improve stamina. They also have a refreshing and firming effect on the skin. The juice of the root of the yacon plant, which is rich in polyphenols and minerals, stimulates the skin’s metabolism and is also intensively moisturizing.
The fragrance of this skincare range makes Beleza do brasil a Brazilian dance of the senses. The refreshing scent captures the essence of summer vacations, beaches and palms. The head note of lime, milky coconut essences and fruity-tangy lime, bergamot and mandarin conjures up Copacabana beach, while the heart note of lily-of-the-valley, jasmine and hibiscus has a floral, exotic character. The warm base note with hints of musk and tropical woods rounds off this fresh, sparkling yet exotic fragrance and transports you to the rainforest that is still steaming after a tropical shower.
