The Golden Ingredient for Skin-Nourishing Care

Lotions, Butters, and Oils from Nativa SPA Harness the Power of Quinoa

Embrace every inch of your body through a whole new kind of care. With replenishing ingredients, rich textures, comforting scents, and conscious formulas, Nativa SPA crafts plant-based, cruelty-free body blends that care for you and the Earth.

The Start of Nativa

A part of Boticário Group, one of Brazil’s largest and most-loved beauty companies, Nativa SPA began when Brazilian pharmacist Miguel Krigsner discovered Quinoa on a trip through the Andes. After immersing himself in research about the nourishing abilities of the supergrain for the skin and body, a new endeavor began.

A pioneer of Brazil’s whole beauty approach, Krigsner took this seed of an idea, cultivated the beauty of Brazillian body care, and grew it into the brand Nativa SPA is today. Each bottle is filled with whole nutrition, so it can wrap your skin in whole care.

Why Quinoa?

Thanks to a unique extraction and innovative distillation process, Nativa SPA’s formulas are powered by the purest possible nutrient-rich Quinoa Oil. This patented golden elixir smoothes, firms, and hydrates the skin to improve its overall wellness.

Local to the Andes highlands, Quinoa was a staple in pre-Columbian Inca, Aymara, and Quechua diets. The Incas considered it sacred, calling it the golden grain. Nativa SPA combines this ancient wisdom with modern technology for superior care.

Quinoa is a supergrain packed with protein, antioxidants, and omegas that nourish the skin from inside and out. It contains a high concentration of polyphenols, carotenoids like vitamin A, and tocopherols like vitamin E.

While our body produces omega-9 on its own, we get omegas-3 and 6 from our diet. When applied topically, this combo instantly aids the skin’s supply, and Quinoa combines all three with 30x more than coconut oil, 4x more than avocado oil, and 2x more than almond oil.

Quinoa is also a super emollient and delivers moisture to the skin’s surface, making it look firmer and smoother. This precious grain strengthens the skin’s barrier, helping to hold onto hydration and glow with radiance.

Nativa SPA’s exclusive, patented process enables the extraction of 100% pure quinoa oil, preserving its whole essence and nourishing properties.

Eco-Friendly Advantage

From the clean ingredients and how they’re sourced to the recycled and recyclable packaging, Nativa SPA considers the planet at every step.

The body care brand’s lines are vegan, cruelty-free, Leaping Bunny-certified, follow strict EU safety standards, and are free from 1,000+ toxins including parabens, formaldehyde, and phthalates. Its parent company even banned animal testing more than 20 years ago.

A UN Global Pact member and guardian of its 12 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Boticário has been at the forefront of environmental and social responsibility for the past 30 years. Nativa SPA offsets any shipping carbon emissions and is taking steps to reduce its footprint throughout the supply chain.

With its #BeautyForTheFuture platform, Nativa SPA created 16 ambitious commitments to further its positive impact on people and the planet by 2030, from boosting biodiversity in 3.5 hectares of land and reducing waste by 150% to using 100% renewable electricity.

The company also uses 100% post-consumer recycled material for its lotion and oil bottles with an innovative shape that minimizes plastic. These bottles and caps are easily recyclable, and the pumps, tubes, and refills can be recycled through TerraCycle. Nativa SPA offers sustainable refills as well, with the Moisturizing Lotion Refill Pouch using 78% less plastic than the traditional bottles.

On top of thoughtful packaging and ethically sourced ingredients, Nativa SPA gives 1% of its proceeds back to the Earth with over $20 million donated per year, directly impacting 17 million people. This includes biodiversity conservation with more than 21,000 acres in a privately-owned preserved area, 550 protected areas, 1,600 environment-focused initiatives supported, and 300 social projects supported.

The brand goes further by excluding samples from its production. Roughly 800 billion single-use packets are already produced every year, rarely get recycled, and often end up in waterways instead.
