I do however get a lot of feedback from you wonderful readers asking for the actual ingredients in the "latest and greatest" beauty products. Also... this was just the type of product I would have gone for big time before I realized I needed to detox and started checking ingredients.
Do I still need to say that the first step for me is always entering a product's ingredients into Skin Deep? Here's what I found when I did...

What makes this a Brazilian product or even associated with Brazil? Is it worth the hazard risk? Those are questions I can't answer. I'll never try a product with a hazard rating of seven (7).
