FAZENDA SÃO BENEDITO

A RESPONSIBLE FARM

The main ingredients of our products, such as essential oils and organic hydrolates, are grown at our Fazenda São Benedito, which is 350km from the city of São Paulo, in Bom Sucesso de Itararé. We respect the cycles of rain, soil and plants. There are 320 hectares of organic and certified soil, where aromatic plants, vegetables and fruits are born. More than half of the native forest is still preserved.

We grow aromatic crops such as lemon grass, chamomile, lavender, fennel, geranium and basil and through the distillation process. we generate the hydrolates, floral waters that are part of the composition of our products. The other raw materials come from suppliers which are also certified by Ecocert Greenlife, which guarantees us quality, provenance and traceability of the process.

Our history has been following generations. We are an organic family. La Naturelle, a company of ice creams and sorbets, is part of our group and uses certified organic fruits extracted from Fazenda São Benedito in its production.

The group aims to take care of nature and value the products it offers us. La Naturelle also grew out of a desire to bring to the consumer the best that pure land can offer. Together, Souvie and La Naturelle, we believe it is possible to respect nature and provide real food for our bodies.

INGREDIENTS

When choosing your cosmetics, it is important to understand the difference between a conventional cosmetic, natural and a certified organic product.

Everyone has or has already bought some in the pharmacy or in the supermarket. What most people do not know is that conventional cosmetics contain substances such as parabens and synthetic substances (chemical compounds that are harmful to health and the environment), and petrolatums (petroleum-derived) that, in addition to damaging the environment, also damage the health of those who consumes them.

The natural cosmetic is characterized by having at least 5% of organic ingredients and at least 50% natural, such as oils, butters, vegetable extracts and substances of natural origin. In addition, they cannot contain preservatives of synthetic origin (methylisothiazolinone, phenoxyethanol, etc.) and synthetic items (silicones), petroleum derivatives, besides not being tested on animals or from animal suffering.

Many products, however, claim to be "natural" but lack the certification of competent bodies that guarantee that they are, in fact, natural. This means that if the product does not have these stamps, it is not possible to be sure that it has the minimum percentage of natural ingredients, besides containing in the formulation synthetic substances in great quantity like those of a conventional product.

The difference between the products that claim to be "organic" and those that really are organic is the same as the natural ones: the certification that guarantees the consumer the veracity of the advertisement.

According to Ecocert Greenlife, an international organic stamp, the cosmetics in this category must have at least 95% natural raw materials and at least 10% organic vegetable raw materials. In addition, they may not have been tested on animals.

Souvie is proud to be above standards, as most products have more than 99% of natural ingredients and an average of 57% of these ingredients come from certified organic vegetables.
